It was a tough decision to travel 1,500 miles just to get a British lab pup from Marty, but worth every yard of the trip! Our new pup, Simba, has been a joy to raise and has become an integral part of our family. Simba is now a few months shy of 2 years old, has retrieved over 150 ducks and geese in hunting situations, and will be finishing her training this year by polishing her ability to use hand signals and learning field hunting techniques before next season. If you want to get the very best hunting lab from someone who is willing to help you in any way possible, I can't recommend anyone more highly than Marty Roberts at Sporting Life Kennels!
There is a great deal of joy in owning a dog that turns out to be more than you envisioned on the day you took him home. My relationship with Sam has been that of a constant companion. Between dove, September teal, and regular duck season he has hunted about 50 days per year each of the last three falls. He does everything I ask of him with enthusiasm. I cannot count the times my hunting companions have voiced their praises of him. He goes to work with me a couple of days per week and is always a gentleman. At home he is the perfect family dog. My three children jokingly say that he is their 4th sibling.
I have and will continue to recommend Sporting Life Kennels to friends wanting a first class dog for the field and at home.
