Check out Whispering Pines Labs out of Milaca. Dan and Mary Jo are great people, easy to work with, and we couldn't be happier with our red from them. He'll be 9 in May but still has the drive of a pup and very good temperament. We will most likely go through them again in a couple years.

Thanks for the reply, their dogs look great. It seem though that they are not British labs? I am not looking to get one of regular size.

I have my name down for one from whispering pines and it is not a british. They do have one male that is pretty bulky who has a couple of litters available right now. not sure if he is british or not though.

I have to ask because I have never understood british labs... Why do you want a british?

Thanks for the info.

I love labs, but the home owners association I live will not allow us to have dogs over 60 pounds and I just don't want to have that become an issue.

Ok cool. I always thought that british labs were the bigger labs. shows how much I know I guess.

I ran into a similar issue recently, the place I live became pet friendly recently so I started looking for puppies. I found a couple litters I was interested in and almost put a deposit down on one. I figured I should see how much extra it was going to cost to have a dog and what not, so I talked to the landlord and she told me that if we get a dog it has to be at least 4 months old. So I don't know what they expect us to do with a puppy for the first 2 months that we would own it... kind of annoying. anyway, we are not going to get one until we buy a house now because if I cant start training and having it around me to develop a bond for the first two months, there is no point in getting one for now.

Along with their calm nature comes a very strong drive to hunt and retrieve. British Labradors are kind of like Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde - they're mellow dogs that just hang out around the house, but put them in the hunting field and they turn into hunting machines. They're calm enough to hunt with handicapped hunters, yet have enough heart and drive to hunt for groups of 6-10 hunters releasing over 200 birds in one day.

Many people find it hard to believe that there is such a difference in temperament and hunting ability

between the American Labrador and the British Labrador. What we've discovered is that a Labrador with a good pedigree, whether British or American, is typically bred from a line that contains many field trial champions. A British Labrador will have more calmness and hunting drive bred into it, while an American Labrador will be bred to be "amped" and to withstand high pressure. This is due in large part to the way field trials are conducted in the UK versus in the US.

In the US, AKC field trials involve dogs mechanically obeying commands - some of which are counter-intuitive to the dog - and retrieving dummies or dead game. In the UK, field trials involve live game and real-life hunting and shooting scenarios. Dogs must mark and then retrieve dead and wounded game. Finding and retrieving game is of utmost importance. In addition, dogs are not allowed to even whimper when on the line or they'll be disqualified. Therefore, British Labradors are bred for strong hunting and scenting abilities as well as a calm temperament.


all, the British Labrador's scenting ability is extraordinary and far superior to other breeds. They are exceptional upland game bird dogs and strong swimmers, making them excellent waterfowl dogs as well. Considered a “gentleman’s dog,” British Labradors are easy to train and, once trained, become an exceptional hunting companion.



Just a little info


I have a field bred uk male black lab who weighs 55lbs
I chose him because I don't do much water foul hunting duck only at times. Mostly pheasant and grouse. Now with his size he has better agility faster and better stamina than a dog weighing 70-80lbs

He is a bird machine and I have been out with other friends dogs that need rest and mine wont be a lick tired
