What To Know Before Buying A Puppy
It is strongly recommended that you educate yourself on titles before purchasing a pointing lab.
If you want a true pointing lab and willing to pay the extra money, it is highly recommended the parents have pointing lab titles from the APLA. The testing procedures on the dog's ability that they have implemented proves what is in the parents. Titles awarded start at CP APR MPR and finish at the most challenging title awarded GMPR. Buyer beware if the parents don't have these titles. Some breeders sell puppies going by the grandpa was a pointing lab then your pup will be one. Don't settle for this unless you have hunted behind the parents of the pup and pleased with their performance and pointing ability. You're paying the extra money so they should have APLA titles. There are breeders that don't hunt or test their dogs for performance and say they point. We do hunt our dogs in Iowa, South Dakota and hunt test them all over the United States. This is why we can afford an unconditional satisfaction guarantee for 26 months. ASK FOR REFERENCES. In the horse trading business most people understand what a horse trader refers to. In the dog breeding/training business there also are several dog traders. So do your home work and be very careful. Evan if it appears the kennel is the best. If their that good then they should provide several references.
