Zepplin with Santa at 10 months.

Prince got his Master Hunter Title on March 16th, 2013 at 4 years old!



Wilson, from Polar Bears first litter, is the best dog my family could of asked for! Thank you for giving us this gift. Attached are a few of my favorite pictures. Also, he is the smartest dog I have ever had. He taught himself to retrieve the paper with no training. Also, he was potty trained within two weeks and never chewed. He is truly an amazing dog! I will be sending some customers your way. Sincerely, Ethan

"Tess" at 12 Months Old.

Hello Belinda! I am not sure if you remember me but my husband and I got our lab Tess from you almost a year ago. She was the black and white collar girl from Lily's litter, same as your Zoey, born on September 15, 2009. I wanted to email you because we celebrated Tess' birthday last week with a little get-together and I thought I would send you a few pictures of our sweet girl, just so you can see how she is doing. We cannot say enough great things about her; she is healthy, so well-behaved (the vet told me just yesterday that she is the best lab "pup" she has seen yet), sweet as can be, and oh so smart! We are so happy with her and are very grateful to you and HR Kennels (and of course, Boo and Lily) for allowing us to have such a wonderful addition to our family. My husband is planning to take Tess for her first hunt this year, so I will let you know how it goes. I hope you enjoy the pics!

"Miller" at 11 Months Old.

Belinda, We just wanted to thank you for both Miller and Dixie, they have both been wonderful companions. I have attached two recent pictures of Miller. He's not quite a year yet (Lily's third litter), but he had a bunch of firsts last Wednesday. He went on his first Dove hunt, first opening day, and of course, I had to take a picture of his first dove retrieved. Kirk Wichman did an excellent job training him, but his temperament has received more complements. There were other dogs out there and he was by far the best behaved. Some of the other owners couldn't believe he was 11 months old and was acting like an adult. Instead of running around with the other dogs playing, he was right by my side the whole day, waiting to work…if only I was a better shot, he would have had more fun retrieving. Thanks again.

"Jake" at 6 Months Old.

Belinda, We found Horizon Kennels in Sealy and love it. Brian Lee is the trainer and he even complimented your dogs saying all the dogs he's worked with from HR Kennels have been great (good instincts). Brigid


"For a 13 month old, Prince did very well. Thanks to LANCE's training. He was very steady to shot in spite of the chaos caused by more than 50 shooters and several other dogs in the big field. Marked the falls well & retrieved to hand with good form. Both Prince & I had great and satisfactory hunt. "

"Abbey" at 1 Year Old.

"Hey Belinda, Our Goober Girl Abbey is one year old today, so we are sending photos taken today. She is so wonderful, smart, gorgeous (a tall 72 pounds) and loyal as well as the BEST frisbee catcher. Smarty Abbey also passed the AKC Canine Good Citizen exam at 9 Months old, pretty incredible as most dogs are at least 2 years old to pass. Next step is to become a therapy dog so everyone can enjoy her company. Abbey is such a STUNNING girl, just so fabulous! She is so looking forward to getting a sister from you! Thank you for everything!!!! Judy "


"Tess finished her JH today. Nice water retrieve on about a 120 yard mark. Not an easy way to finish but she did well! "

Tess got her Junior Hunt Title! The top two photos are from her JH Test in Port Arthur when she was 10 months old and the bottom two are from her JH Hunt Test in Bryan College Station at 11 months old.

"Prince" at 5 years old with his friend Magic.

Belinda, Thought I would share a few recent photgraphs of Prince. He is a great dog. Every morning, I take him for a walk, exercise him, practice hand signals, dummy retrieves, and swimming. He has never been sick a day in his life and he is now 5 years old. Never had to trim a toe nail as he keeps them wore down. He is a very gentle, happy dog and weighs 100 pounds. Good around people and other dogs. He has been bitten several times, but he has never bitten another dog. . I tell people that he is my exercise machine. Thanks for a great dog, Don


Hi, Just wanted to let yall know how happy I am with the puppy I got from you (Zoey). She has been all that I asked you for, (white, hopefully small, aggressive retriever, good house dog). She is approx. 9 1/2 months old now and 60 lbs. I figured she probably would be 70 so I am happy she a little smaller. She was working out great as a house dog, until we were displaced by the hurricane, and she has been great adjusting to the changes since then. She is an absolute beast when it comes to retrieving, she is wide open out and back and never tires. I have not been able to hunt her this year because of the circumstances but I will next year and I think she will be great. She is really sweet and we all love her. Again, thanks for your help in picking the right litter and the right puppy. I am including a picture that I took yesterday. Please don't hesitate to use me as a reference. Billy LaPorte, Texas


I cannot tell you how pleased we are with Pierce. More and more we are seeing that he is the perfect combination of friendly and sweet natured family dog, mixed with wonderful hunting capabilities. People constantly stop us and compliment on how handsome he is too. How lucky we were to see your ad.

"Blanco" has received his Junior Hunt Title!

Our bond with Blanco grows each day. We can't imagine our lives without him. He continues to be the perfect companion, housedog and hunting dog! Took him duck hunting last fall and he just wouldn't stop and rest! So eager to please! He is a machine! :) Tracey and John from Houston, TX
