Comments from buyers of our 2007 litter:

  "He is the best dog I've ever had. This pup is really good. I don't know how the rest of the litter is turning out, but if they're anything like Jackson you should do it again". Carlton and Barb McKinney 6/07.

     "Brant loves his water retrieving. He is a machine on easy retrieves in our training pond (20 to 50 yards). All in all we couldn't be more pleased with the breeding and with Brant in particular." Keith Tidball 9/07.

     "We are ecstatic, he's been such a great dog and continues to impress us with his learning ability. He loves the water and is now retrieving at pretty far distances". Brent and Mel Jensen 10/07.

     "You can sell futures on the next litter. Thanks again for the opportunity to own dog like this, our friends can't believe it; he goes to the office and is so well socialized, great in the house and can hunt as well." Carlton and Barb McKinney, 10/07.
