    Default breeder recommendations

    I know this isn't a training question but I'm curious about breeder recommendations near southeast Kansas. I'm looking for a Labrador or Chesapeake in the future (like next year or even later). I'd love to get one now but it's not the right timing for me. Just getting some ideas to do some more research. I appreciate any thoughts.

    What are you planning to use the pup for?

    I plan on hunting. No shows and probably no trials. Non breeder. And I have not had a chessie and I am a fairly inexperienced trainer. So I'm probably going to go for a lab cause I know chessies are known to be a little trickier to handle.

    Many good dog breeders in the KS/MO/OK area. Don't limit yourself to geography when choosing a litter. Its just a few trips to see the dogs and pick a pup. That being said I can personally recommend Blackjack kennels out of Chanute, KS. Purchased 2 dogs from Jeff. Google kennel name for more info.

    Double TT in Sylvia, KS. Haynes Floyd has been turning out fine dogs for a long time. My new pup is from TT; strong Brit/Irish field champion breeding - her daddy and granddad are both HRCH/MH dogs and are both in the 500 pt club.

    I bought a dog from a kennel listed above (not post #3) and was given health info on the dog, a young brood bitch, that included "OFA Good hips." I trusted the breeder and when it came time to show OFA scores for pup buyers, no tests had been done. She came back mild on her left hip. The response I got from the breeder - "not my dog, not my problem."

    I learned a hard lesson that day. Do your research.
