Default New Hunting Dog

I am looking to purchase a lab puppy. I would like the best pedigree possible for hunting upland birds. What breeder do you recommend?

If you're looking for the best possible pedigree for upland birds, you should be looking for a springer if you want a flushing dog. Or, if you want a pointing dog, an English Setter, German Muenster-lander or a Wirehair.

I have an English Setter and he's amazing. I can give you the names of a couple of really good English Setter breeders if you'd like. (one of them breeds labs too)

German Shorthaired pointers make really good all around pointing and waterfowl dogs. If all you care about is waterfowling though, you can't beat a lab.

IMHO

He's just saying to be open minded and I agree 100% with what he shared. Just because your dad had a lab doesn't mean you "have" to have one. You should try relaxing and stop chasing people away from posting.

Kraig is right on. I have a brother and a good friend looking for pups right now. One a lab, the other a chessie. Both of them hunt almost 100% upland. I think other breeds would be better for them, but they will be the ones feeding and living with the dog.
