I have a very special little female black Labrador puppy name Ruby who is right at 2 years old now. She is very dear to me and my family since she is the daughter of my father's, the late Governor Kirk Fordice, dog HRCH Lance. Ruby is not only a great working dog, but she is also our house dog, and needless to say, a very important part of my family.

Marty Roberts and his staff at Sporting Life Kennels have done an outstanding job in training Ruby for the past 2 years. She earned her HR title this spring with me handling her, and she did it without failing any tests. Marty is currently training her for her HRCH title that we hope to earn this fall. She has proven to be a joy to duck hunt with as her discipline and handling skills are superb, thanks to Marty and his staff.

I could not be any more pleased with Marty and the entire staff at Sporting Life Kennels. The facility is very appropriate and well managed, and it is obvious that the level of training is outstanding. I am perfectly comfortable every time I leave HR Ruby in the very capable hands of Sporting Life Kennels, and I would highly recommend the services of Sporting Life Kennels to anyone looking for a superb hunting retriever.
