Dan was wonderful to work with. Love our puppy.
At 8 months Maddie is healthy, and very energetic! We intentionally chose her because she was the smallest in the litter. At 8 months she is just shy of 50 lbs and I love her size. I don’t need an 80 lb dog. She will retrieve all day. Not a barker. Still lots of training to do but coming long better than expected.
We bought our chocolate lab, Moose, from Ganderland 3 1/2 years ago. Best dog I’ve owned. Great house dog, good with other dogs, a good hunter, and handsome! My son recently took him bird hunting for the first time & he brought the duck to his feet! His 90 pounds can be intimidating to people, but he’s a big lover that only barks when people or animals come to visit him. *Highly recommend!
We bought our Yellow Lab from Dan last June. Dutch just turned 1yr. Our dog is amazing and we get so many compliments on what a great looking dog he is, with his big blocky head. Dan is a great guy and couldn’t have had a better experience. Thank you Dan and Linda .They really care about breeding great tempered, smart & beautiful Labs. The Ewing’s
Got my black pup 12 yrs ago. Grew big, 90 lbs, strong, a little hard headed. 7 months old retrieved 6 full grown geese from a lake blind, some more than 1/2 mile down lake. Good on grouse, poor on retrieve, could never learn to watch the fall. After 4 yrs, something was wrong with him. Off to vet for a week, diagnosis, Addison’s disease. Took to UW Madison Veterinary clinic. Same diagnosis, switched medication from pile of pills everyday to 1 pill/day plus 1 shot/month and prescription food. About $2000/yr at our local vet, definitely down price from the city. 8 yrs later, several minor crisis, kidneys failed. He was able to hunt well until he was 8, marginal till 10. Addison’s is a genetic disorder.
A few years back ,I received a sick pup.She didn’t do well from day one.I know he’s been breeding dogs for over 30 yrs. I’m sure has had good experiences but for me ,was not ,$ 800.00 down the drain. Looking back ,it’s just a nicer puppy mill. He even took me to his own vet to help out because she needed shots ,meds etc
Well guess what ,she died. So I would never recommend.
Sometimes it’s time to hang it up and find another hobby.
I found this kennel three weeks ago and they said they had three black lab females and I my name would be at the top of the list. They said I could come out in three weeks and have my pic of the female. Dan called me yesterday and left a message saying he was not available this weekend to pick one out but he would be there on Monday. Today I phoned him and told him I’d like to come out and pick out my female. female. He said he’d be around all day. I told him I was just over 30 miles away and headed out. When I got there I saw several labs in concrete runs. I went to the door and old man answered and shook my hand. I told him that I was here to pick out the black lab female intern replied That there must be some sort of mistake because he had no black female pups available. Why he didn’t tell me this when I was 30 miles away from his house I don’t know. Why he didn’t tell me this three weeks ago I don’t know. I’m really sorry I wasted my time. I would not recommend this breeder to anyone. I have worked for several that there must be some sort of mistake because he had no black female pups available. Why he didn’t tell me this when I was 30 miles away from his house I don’t know. Why he didn’t tell me this three weeks ago I don’t know. I’m really sorry I wasted my time. I would not recommend this breeder to anyone. I have worked for several reputable veterinarians . I’ve trained several bird dogs. Never in my life have a driven 30 miles for a dog that wasn’t even there. I still don’t understand why he couldn’t tell me in the first place why was he trying to Luer me out there? Just weird.
