    My current lab turned 10 yesterday. He has been having some odd symptoms for the last 6 months and I didn’t hunt him hardly at all last fall and winter and he has become a house dog by the fire. I officially retire on June 28th and want to spend lots of time hunting in the coming years. So it’s time for me to look for a puppy. I hunt both waterfowl and upland game. Our duck season runs until middle of January and our river stays open at -10 below so some of the conditions are rough. I have owned 1 chessie and 3 labs over the last 40 years. I don’t think I have another chessie left in me to train so I want to stick with a lab. I prefer my labs around 80 lbs  and have always preferred yellows over blacks. I would like another male. Any suggestions for kennels to contact? I come to Iowa to visit family but live in Wyoming so a trip to South Dakota or Nebraska is not out of the question to pick up a pup.

    If cost isn’t an option take a look at http://www.ridgeviewlabradors .  Iowa Pointing labs is also a very reputable breeder in the state with national notoriety https://iowapointinglabs.com/ .  Both of these breeders put out amazing dogs, but you will pay a price for them.  $1500 an up.
