Default Pointing Labs

I have a reg. yellow lab (male). and i am interested in getting a pointing lab (female). I see that a lot of people here have them, and i was wondering what breeder you purchased yours from, and how much they usually run (price). From what i can see, somewhere between 700-1000 is common.

thanks,
Greenhead.

I got Casey from Black Forest Kennels in Colorado. Black Forest has more Grand Masters (breeding stock) than any other kennel. They are at www.pointinglabrador.com

GOOD PLs are awesome, but they ain't cheap.

Lol, i also want a pointing lab. I have looked at the black forest kennels, and i wasn't quite as impressed with its program and dogs, as i was of some others.

How/what made you choose them?

I got mine for $1200 at www.aspengundogs.com they are in Holyoke, Colorado. Superior genetics come from there. They also have vizlas and a type of spanish pointer.

If you are interested in a dog that points,my advice is get a pointing breed.If you really must have a lab, check these folks out:

If a guy wants only one dog -- and he wants a good retriever and he wants a good pointer, then there are only a couple choices.

Greenhead, I will p.m. you. I found a good breeder, and I have already placed my down payment.

Not impressed? They have more GMPRs than any other kennel. What didn't impress you about their "program or dogs"? What kennel impressed you more? And why?

Why pay that kind of money for a novelty dog? A good traditional gsp, or wirehaired pointer will do everything a PL will do and cost you a fraction of the cost.

A GWP definitely comes close - but a GSP? I don't think so. Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking GSPs (I love 'em), but breaking ice, big water, sub-zero temps while sitting in the blind, etc. - - - - - ?
