As far as flying dogs in, I have no problem there. Several of my dogs I have had have been shipped to me in that fassion. I am just totally unaware of good chessie kennels that are not in Idaho etc. I have only flown in versatiles due to the fact I have been out of the retriever game for so long.
Any comments via pm regarding northern flight kennels in boise?
Thanks again for the replies and I shall start my research.
I have to agree - if you can get Steve from Sunshine Kennels to communicate with you - I sent a bitch up there to breed w/ one of his Ch dogs in the early 80s - they turned out to be the best! There is a breeder a bit north of you in Alberta - has great liniage dogs - but, looks like you got more than enough to research. . . welcome back to the brown dog nation - your reason for owning one is the same as mine!!!
BTW - Nick - I wanted to get Tony to stop by my place on his hunting journey to the MS Delta to hunt up here in the MS lakes, we just hooked up on the board - that's a great lookin' pup he's got there, Thor threw a good litter it appears. I'm impressed he's hunting his pup at 7 mos!
