Thread: Double TT British kennel and Royalty kennels labs - off switch

    Default Double TT British kennel and Royalty kennels labs - off switch

    Looking at getting on the waitlist for a pup and since I’m out of state, I won’t get to see the dogs in person. Seems like they get great reviews. I’m curios from people with knowledge of how their dogs are when they aren’t hunting as my primary day to day will be an in-house family dog.

    I love to hunt and train and will do so but my wife will kill me if we have another pistol lab that acts likes it’s on fire all the time. She was a great hunting and sweet as could be but just too much energy day to day.

    I feel confident from what I’ve read their dogs will suit my needs well in the field but wanted to hear about when they are not hunting in day to day life. Any experience?

    Thank you.

    They all have off switches.
    Can’t speak to the breeder you’ve chosen.

    Totally agree!

    Leave a puppy to it's own devices with little to no puppy "training" (socialization, house manners, etc) you will never find the proverbial "off" switch that so many insist a puppy have when looking to breeders and litters.

    Completely agree. Mostly (but not always) on off switch is environmental

    My son has a dog from TT Kennels. I kept it when he went on vacation when the pup was about 4 months old. It was so calm in the house I took it to my vet to get it checked out. I've never seen a puppy that mellow, especially in a new environment.

    4 yrs later, the dog has matured into a fantastic gundog. It's my only experience w/ a TT dog but it's been an excellent choice.
    "The bird hunter watches only the dog, and always knows where the dog is, whether or not visible at the moment. The dog’ nose is the bird hunters eye. Many hunters who carry a shotgun in season have never learned to watch the dog, or interpret his reaction to scent."

    That’s great Dave! I’m hopeful I get lucky. I know environment is huge and I’ve had dogs previously that have been calmer. Our last dog was just so intense he would grind his teeth as she was so eager to please.

    Hopeful to be secure a pup soon! Thanks!!!
