Extraordinary Hunters.


Sporting Life Kennels was built out of a friendship
over 30 years ago.


Sporting Life Kennels all started with owner, Marty Roberts’ passion to raise and train gun dogs. When Marty was 17 years old, his parents gave him his first hunting dog, Jimbob. That first puppy began a passion to raise and train hunting puppies and dogs for people all over the world through our trained British Labrador Retrievers and Puppies, retriever training, obedience, and upland programs. Sporting Life Kennels is located on a 42-acre farm in Oxford, MS with three training lakes, two large hay fields and training woods. 

At sporting life our saying is: "Every waterfowl hunter  has known a great retriever and every great retriever has a story." Through our TV show you can follow the stories of some great  retrievers and the relationship they have with their owners - touching stories, action, as well as retriever training segments - come and join our family and share the deep love we have for our dogs as we live "The Sporting Life."

The Sporting Life TV show airs on The Pursuit Channel and Amazon Prime.
