  • What are Pointing Labs & Gun Dogs?

The Pointing Lab is a gun dog that any hunter would enjoy for uplands hunting as well as a traditional retriever for water fowl. The Pointing Labrador Retriever has long been a top choice for the hunter wanting endurance, energy, and natural instinct in the field.  In addition, the Labrador Retriever is known as a wonderful family dog and companion.  Watching the Pointing Lab at work in the field or in the water is a thing of beauty!  Many hunters say they are their preferences as a gun dog.

The Pointing Lab has a natural instinct to freeze when locating the scent cone of a bird or on site of a live bird.  Pointing is a genetically carried behavior.  Most trainers and hunters will tell you that you can not teach a dog to point.  The pointing characteristic can be passed on if only one parent points and at the same time it might not be passed on when both parents point.  There is no definitive data regarding how pointing is carried and passed on.  In addition, there are no reliable statistics regarding percentage of a litter that will point.

The Labrador Retriever is a people lover, intelligent, and wants to please.  For years, Labs have been used as seeing-eye dogs, search and rescue dogs, and for drug sniffing.  They are easy to train and eager to please.  They are good natured and love to serve people.  An intelligent Pointing Lab with good breeding and from a strong line of natural pointers will make a great hunting companion.
