Jeter was easy to train for advanced
hunt tests, titled in Senior rapidly and
was progressing to Master, only I ran
out of time to pursue! Strong marker who
is very strong in the water. Her pup
that I kept (Gardy) from her first
litter, has a lot of go and hits the
water hard like her momma. Anxious to
see what Jeter gives us from Tanner!
Tanner is our newest addition here.
After a few short months of getting to
know each other, he obtained his Senior
Hunter title with style. He is actively
training for his MH title . Their
pedigrees share some wonderful dogs

Waterspook is a full time Dog Training Center. We also offer beautiful Hunting bred Labrador Pups. Although we don't have puppies all of the time, when we do- they are pretty special. We start with selecting parents who meet very demanding specifications in trainability, natural hunting instincts, proper appearance, and most importantly- PHYSICAL AND MENTAL SOUNDNESS. That is why all Waterspook breeding stock is OFA hip OFA elbow and ACVO or CERF eye cleared. Also, now that the DNA test for EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse) is available to all breeders, all of our breeding stock, and outside breeding stock, is also tested for EIC.
Also, now that the DNA test for EIC (Exercise
Although nobody can guarantee a living animal's future- these criteria allow for peace of mind for us and you! All of our puppies are born and raised indoors, I sleep near the dam and pups for several days to weeks- then at 5 weeks, they're moved out to the puppy pen where they have full access to many toys and challenges. Our puppies are NEVER raised on concrete surfaces- unlike so many other's. I feel this is a benefit in keeping them cleaner, and also is better for their growing joints. They're acclimated to loud noises from the beginning ,and are started 'retrieving' birds at 5 weeks. This of course, continues until they leave for their new homes. At 4 weeks, I begin observing closely their developing personalities, so that I can offer input to each potential family, about the puppies' behavior.
Waterspook Puppies are
current on vaccinations and wormed several times.
Sorry, we do not ship
puppies, Also- as an incentive to return to Waterspook for later training- a $100.00 discount is offered to Waterspook Puppy buyers on the "Gundog Program" (or any program lasting 8 weeks or longer.).
Please inquire for Litter availability-
spoken for but check back for potential
