Dark Timber Kennels has been a top-notch breeder for Labrador Retriever hunting dogs for years. Now they are bringing these dedicated dogs to the west coast. —
Specializing in breeding genetically sound Labrador Retrievers, dogs from Dark Timber Kennels’ have a reputation for being some of the best hunting dogs available. Trainers spend countless hours with these dogs in order to develop strong hunting companions.
These dogs are especially ideal for hunters along the West Coast, particularly in the Seattle, Portland and Sacramento areas. With strong training in retrieving birds, these dogs are ideal companions when hunting quails and pheasants. Dogs with advanced training have picked up more than 1,000 ducks in their first year of hunting.
“Our training is focused on making all our Labradors great at making retrievals quickly while also following commands from their owners,” said Jason Craig, head trainer at Dark Timber Kennels. “Our goal is to make every Retriever from Dark Timber Kennels the ideal hunting dog as well as a great pet when you take them home.”
Hunters looking for a started dog, a fully trained finished Labrador Retriever, or anything in between will find exactly what they are looking for.
Started dogs are perfect for hunters who want to train dogs with their own hunting commands, but aren’t able to fully commit to the time it takes to teach a puppy that doesn’t have any training. Started dogs were in high demand and 2016 and look to be even more lucrative to hunters in 2017.
Finished dogs were also in high demand last year, but for a much different reason. Owners of finished dogs that are trained at Dark Timber Kennels have been described as “the perfect hunting dog.” These Labrador Retrievers have been trained to retrieve and deliver to hand, are highly obedient on and off leash and are able to make blind retrievals.
All dogs from Dark Timber Kennels are purebred and are American Kennel Club papered Labrador Retrievers. All puppies and dogs are able to be registered with AKC as a purebred dog and are able to compete in all AKC licensed hunt tests, field trials and obedience tests.
To show hunters how effective Labradors can be at each stage of training, Dark Timber Kennels has put together a Youtube page with videos of some of the various dogs they have trained over the past year. Hunters can visit this YouTube Channel to see these dogs in action as they retrieve decoys, listen to commands and work quickly with their trainer.
