Improvments through mainting retriever skills

Hunting Ability, Retriever Skills, Drive

One of the good things about American Labradors is a good majority of them have maintained their hunting and retrieving ability.  When we discuss improvements based upon hunting and retrieving skills, one of the ways we can determine if a Labrador has retained their functional craft is how well they retrieve waterfowl.  The primary way to do this is through hunt test.  Therefore, when we discuss breeding improvements, we mean looking for dogs with hunting titles in the pedigree, taking your own retrievers out to trials and hunt tests, and selecting breed pairings which will enhance the hunting ability without producing hyperactivity.  Although dilute Labs are not always welcome at hunt tests, the judges typically don’t police color and will allow them to complete various hunt titles.
