Younghaus Working dogs have now Imported the Field Trial and Hunt Test Labrador Retriever
to our breeding program of Working Dogs.
Besides the basic hunting and retrieving work the Labrador does in the field, their great work ethic and intelligence have earned them many prestigious awards and challenging work tasks. To name a few, they have excelled in High level competition AKC obedience, Agility, Search and Rescue, all areas of Detection work (Bomb, Narcotic, Cadaver etc.), Guide dog for the Blind, Assistance dogs, Tracking, Field Trail, Hunting and the list goes on….
The high popularity of the Lab is due in large part to its great versatility combined with a typically easygoing, amiable temperament. Helen Warwick wrote In her 1964 book, The Complete Labrador Retriever, “The ideal Labrador temperament is one of a kindly, outgoing, adaptable nature, anxious to please and non-quarrelsome with man or beast.” This statement being true then, is as true today. When it comes to choosing a family pet they win hands down. They are known as very friendly, intelligent, energetic and good natured, making them excellent companions and working dogs.
Risky Dreamer (Tiggy)
“Tiggy” is a 5 year old, 80 lb dark yellow/fox red Labrador who has shown exceptional training abilities. He is trained to the master hunter level but we are not field trialers so have never titled him. He is OFA excellent, as are his sire and dam OFA excellent, has a terrific pedigree, is outstanding quality in the field and as a superior stud dog. He has produced many fine pups that are successful in both trials and as upland and waterfowl dogs.
Tiggy’s sire is one of the greatest labs of all time, GMHRCH (Grand Master Hunting Retriever with 1000 points) WR (Working Retriever) Silverbrook’s Return to Sender MH (Elvis). Elvis was featured on the Discovery Channel’s Animal Planet as a prime example of the working Labrador Retriever.
Tiggy continues his father’s tradition of producing superior offspring and being a machine of a retriever. He has a calm demeanor and just loves to hang out. His retrieving is calculated and precise and we very rarely lose a downed bird if he’s in the field.
