TWO Summer Litters Arrived! Jeter had 10, Rita had 7!



























Rita, SH                      X              Gruden, MH


                   Waterspook CW Topshelf Margarita, SH            Nat CH  Mergansers Hawkeye Gruden, MH           

LITTER #1 due  late July   BLACK PUPPIES EXPECTED :   Rita, SH   x   Gruden, MH


 Rita is a love. Easy to train, snagged her 4 Senior passes for her SH title without failing any, Spring 2018. Solid marker and a very willing tractable Handling dog. Granddaughter to our recently passed  matriarch "Willie", so she holds a very special spot in my heart.  She is 75lbs+.

Gruden passed his Master Hunter title 5 without fail, and passed the Master National hunt test in 2019.Also has placements in Qualifying Field Trials. With this and his sweet demeanor and stunning good looks, he made a perfect choice for Rita's first litter.

Both are OFA Excellent, OFA Elbows, OFA Eyes (annually ). Rita OFA Cardiac, and Clear for full Labrador Panel through PPG, Gruden Clear EIC and CNM.

Both parents are OFA Excellent, OFA Elbows Clear, OFA Eyes, EIC/CNM Clear and PRA/PRCD and DILUTE Clear.










  JETER, SH                         X            TANNER, SH


   Waterspook All American Yankee Jeter, SH           Rebel Ridge Tan I Am, SH           


                               Waterspook All American Yankee Jeter, SH X Rebel Ridge Tan I Am, SH

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  Combined I believe we will have some driven working dogs with sweet loving temperaments. Both are OFA Hips(Jeter good-Tanner Excellent) OFA Elbows Clear, OFA Eyes (annually) OFA Cardiac Clear,  and Clear for everything on PPG Labrador Panel.  


We have puppies reserved from both litters, but please feel free to inquire about either of these well planned litters.......




























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 Induced Collapse) and CNM (CentroNeuroMyopathy)

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-

All spoken for but check back for potential cancellations
