If you are looking for a soft mouthed, fully charged, sensitive, and obedient hunting partner then get the ADVANTAGE!
The fact is no matter how much the puppy costs, or how great its parentage, you can not train into a gun dog what is not already in its DNA.
Here at Advantage Pointing Labs we focus only on breeding high performance pointing labs for the field and home. Our Labradors are used for hunting throughout the year and have passed a number of hunting tests and field trials to prove they rank among the highest in quality for pointing Labrador Retrievers.
We are located in upland bird country of Northeast Colorado. We love Labrador Retrievers, due to their drive and intelligence, and when you get home you have an enjoyable family pet. We strive to produce puppies that are easy to train and will perform at the highest levels of retrieving and pointing.
If you are new to the pointing lab world, we will spend time with you to explain the different titles, what they mean, and why they are so very important when purchasing a pointing lab. We will help you in the training process by suggesting reputable trainers we have used personally. We have two pointing Labradors, and breed them only occasionally. We always use a titled Grand Master Pointing Retreiver (GMPR) or (SH) Senior Hunt stud dog. Our females have OFA certificates for the hips and eye (CERF) certificatifications. We do not breed to affected EIC or PRA stud dogs.
Our goal is producing a better pointing lab puppy through a well thought out breeding plan. Most customers will make the comment that they have never owned a dog that is so smart. Smart dogs are easy to train for the home and field.
We're so confident in our Pointing Labrador puppies that we offer a satisfaction guarantee for 26 months.
Did you know almost all of the pointing labs we have today have descended from a small gene pool of 3 lines? Labs are a breed that emerged through ad-hoc breedings by early settlers of the island in the 16th century. The foundation of the St. John's Dog are not known, but were likely a random-bred mix of English, Irish, and Portuguese working breeds. The smaller short-coated St. John's Dog (also known as the Lesser Newfoundland) was used for retrieval of fishing nets from the water. These smaller dogs were the beginnings of the Labrador Retriever. The white chest, feet, chin, and muzzle - known as tuxedo markings - characteristic of the St. John's Dog often appear in modern Lab, and will occasionally manifest in Labradors as a small white spot on the chest (known as a medallion) or stray white hairs on the feet or muzzle.
