"Competition homes only"
Not that Im in the market at this very minute for another Lab pup but day will come in the next 5 years so Im trying to start putting back a little $$$ for a good pup and at least 5-6 months training or so. Simply put, Allie is getting up close to her senior years and I cannot imagine life without a good retriever in it.

Im taking it that "competition homes only" means because I dont do hunt tests or field trials and dont even get to hunt a whole lot, I got to settle for a backyard bred mutt with no health certs again?

I understand people not wanting their prized pups from a Grand Champion being fat ass couch dogs that wont fetch a biscuit but will people that breed healthy pups really not sale one to someone like me that is looking for a good dual purpose dog that knows service work and retrieving work?

Surely with everyone I know in the dog business, I will be able to find a decent Lab pup when time comes? :confused:

I'm sure with the contacts available you will be able to find a suitable pup.

Plus, if you do like with Allie and get at least one title to go along with the service aspect a lot of breeders would most likely be happy with that.

Plenty of people sell health checked pups with hunt test titles to gimps and walkers everyday. No reason you can't get what you're looking for in the 750 ballpark.just tell us when you are ready.
