First time poster,
but I've read a lot on these forums previously & haven't found the exact info I am looking for. This will be my first duck hunting dog, & a new addition to the family. I want a dog that will be able to switch it on & off from hunting buddy to best friend's hanging out in house. I hunt mostly in North Louisiana on private land, & some in Arkansas on a lease. I hunt 3-4 a week. I have never trained a puppy & I am busy this time of year with our family business & don't think i would have time to fully commit to a pup, so therefore I'm looking for:
1.) A started labrador (female)
2.) Color choices would be Chocolate, Black,& Yellow in that order.
3.) EIC, CNM, OFA Hips, OFA Elbow, Eye CERF
4.) Cost less than $7,500 if possible
5.) Training from a reputable kennel
I am located in Shreveport,LA, but willing to travel to find a dog that will be right for me.
Just looking for a few good kennel suggestions & see if anyone might know where to find a started dog in LA,TX,ARK,MS,OK or further if need be.
Thanks in Advance,
