Labrador Retrievers have been a part of our family since we were married almost two decades ago. Living in the state of Wyoming, it almost seemed criminal not to have a dog curled up at our feet - especially after we started bring our two-legged pups in to this world.
Of course Wyoming is a sportsman's paradise from the high country elk and mule deer to the low-land whitetail deer, prairie antelope, upland game, water fowl and too many lakes streams and rivers full of rainbow, brooke, brown and cutthroat trout to mention. The trusty Labrador at our side through the years just seemed to complete our little homemade mountain paradise.
Our love and passion for the animals grew as our interests in the outdoors evolved. After getting the chance to hunt over a GSP in an out of town bird hunt - we decided we HAD to have a pointing dog. You can only imagine our excitement when we found out there was such a critter as a pointing Labrador! Although most would classify it as a want - we saw it as a need and introduced Newt, our first pointing Labrador, to the family.
Shortly thereafter we found another high country sport that became a passion - shed hunting. During the spring months, there are a plethora of elk and deer sheds in the mountains. And - guess what? Yup, one can train a Labrador to pick up sheds (even sheds buried under the snow). Abby would be our first dog trained to pick up sheds.
And of course - through the seasons and high country activities - we had our family at home. This is where our dogs find their most valuable niche in our lives - that of family dog. There is never a time period that we have less than half a dozen dogs at Antler Point - and every one of them are house dogs. They are members of our family.
When deciding to breed Labradors - we wanted to create a mission, a vision for what our outcomes of this lifestyle would be. Of course, the primary focus was doing something that would better the Labrador breed. Therefore we pride ourselves in proven blood lines that all have the appropriate health certifications to ensure long and happy lives of our pups and those folks that invite our pups in to their homes. So confident are we at Antler Point Gun Dogs in the health and lines of our puppies that we offer a 24 month health guarantee - and a (pup) lifelong open door to return pup.
Finally - we wanted to find a unique niche for our dogs. We decided we would create the jack-of-all-trades pup. Our dogs come from blood lines that point, are strong swimmers, excellent retrievers, shed hunters, upland machines and most importantly - have the disposition and intelligence that will make them a cherished member of your family.
In a nut shell, that is the history of where Antler Point Gun Dogs is today. We are growing - and we continue to learn about the breed that we are so passionate about.
We sincerely appreciate you stopping by and listening to our story. If there is anything you ever need - and you do not find it on this website or our Facebook or Twitter page - please do not hesitate to contact us.
