What Makes A Big Sky Lab Great?
If you want a great bird dog, get a dog from great bird dog lines. The only way you can truly know that the sire and dam of your pup is a great bird dog is to either hunt behind them, or to look at the pedigree and titles behind the dog. Great field trial retrievers have been rigorously tested and their offspring can be counted on to carry these same genes. It's just that simple. Taking a Labrador Retriever through a field trial championship is an amazing accomplishment that take years, and $1,000's of dollars in training and campaigning expenses. When the dog becomes a National Champion, you have a one in a million Lab. Bottom line is that when you want a great field Labrador Retriever, go to the great field trial lines to get a great bird dog. At Big Sky Labrador Retrievers the linage of our bird dogs is as good as it gets.
The second part of the equation for Big Sky Labs is family. Every week I get a call or two from people who have recently lost their best friend or hunting partner--a cherished Labrador Retriever. At Big Sky Labs we believe that the best way to recover from the loss of one of these great dogs is to get a great Lab puppy. A pup that was bred for the field, but also bred to be a devoted family friend who is able to wind down in front of the fireplace or lay his head in his master's hands for a little rub behind the ears. We so enjoy being able to send these special people home with a new friend, not to replace their old pal, but to move-on, and begin enjoying life again. It's important for you to know that we sell Family and Field Labs. We sell a lot of pups to loving, non hunting homes. Can I tell you a secret? I've never met a Lab who was distraught about not going hunting, if he was loved and cared for by folks who thought he was great. Tennis ball or pheasant, a Big Sky Labrador Retriever is a dog for everyone in the family.
