Hello, my name is troy,
my wife and I got a black lad, named remi, last sept, that was returned to the breeder, due to the family was splitting up and could no longer have the dog, so got remi at the age of 1, and did some test w the breeder and she was good to go, so sent her down to London to get trained for 3 month, till our house was built here in Ontario in november, just north of Toronto, and he and I worked her hard and well, and she is amazing!!! she would out run and swim , his 3 lab's everytime!!! and I have even been offered many offer to buy her back, due to her extremely high drive and focus, but we love her too much and she was more character, than even most people I know LOL!!! she will b 2 this sept. and we can't wait to get out!, she weight 47lbs, but was under 45 when we got her from the trainers, so we feed her now, origin and 3 cups a day with sweet potatoe treats and origin treats, and she is doing amazing, and taking well to her training and up keeping everything she was taught and more!
she can run like lightning and swim, like a dolphin and jump over 10ft straight up, at an standstill LOL
her grand father was a 38 time grand retriever champion and a few more on top of that and her grand-ma was a 29 grand retriever champ with other tittles too, and had 102 pup's, and remi's mom was an working dog, and has a few titles under her, and was just over 50lbs and her father works for st.laurance outfitters and is only about 60lbs.
NOW ABOUT MYSELF!
well I have hunted ducks and geese, pretty well everywhere here in Ontario, in any condition, and everyplace, so I will take her out walking first, for partridge and rabbit and shore hunting, till she get's well introduced to hunting!!!, she loves the boat and fishing, and comes out with me everytime!
hunting here in Ontario, is very challenging, due to all the people who hunt the first month of the opener, but as soon as it get's cold, they go into hibernation, and we should have it all to ourselves.
have a great and safe hunt this up coming season, and practice conservation please!!!!
