Submitted by: Dan Frink on Nov 16, 2012TriLab's Sweet Ginger Brown is a chocolate female from Black Jack Tiger and Cocoa I got last December.
I've been hunting the West Side pheasant release sites in Vancouver, WA and Duvall and she has definitely exceeded my expectations.
She got her 20th retrieve to hand a few weeks ago and her first pheasant water retrieve last week. She flushed the bird, it headed over a slough and I dropped it near the far shore (30 yards away). She jumped in with enthusiasm and headed for the other side. The bird managed to flop to the shore and when Ginger got to where it landed in the water, she got her head up high and looked like she was trying to climb a ladder in the water. Once she spotted it on the shore, she swam over, grabbed it and headed right back to me. I could not have been more proud of her!
Thank you Sean for a great addition to our family!
Submitted by: Bill Cassio on Oct 20, 2012I bought a started dog from Sean last April, out of Tiger and Abigail, his name is Jet and he lives up to the name. He has a great disposition around the house and quickly became part of our family.
I plan on hunting ducks and upland so Sean suggested that we hold off on his pointing for the first year and concentrate on retrieves. On his first trip to the water with my duck boat he immediatly took to jumping off the boat and after the bumper. He swam right back with it and even figured out the swim step.
This summer was abusy one for our family and I was unable to get him on any birds since we picked him up. I took him to a private hunt club last weekend and he took 7 of 7 pheasants! Retrieved to hand on each and was a pleasure to hunt with.
Submitted by: Jim Leptich on Oct 10, 2012My dog's name is Britt, she's out of Black Jack and Mia last Thanksgiving.
I just got her back from Sean two weeks ago after 2 months of training. I have to admit that she was pretty spoiled when I delivered her to Sean, but he took on the challenge and molded her into an awsome hunter. I took her out to a pheasant plant site on Sunday and had them flag the locations so that I could tell how she was doing. Her performance was pretty impressive; she found all of the birds easily; locked up and did not creep at all. She was on most of the birds before they even hit the ground. I wounded one which glided about 200 yds and landed in a thicket at the edge of a pond. She spent several minutes in the brush but couldn't find the bird. I finally called her off to hunt another area. We had to pass the thicket again on our way out and she dove in again. I couldn't see her; I could only hear breaking brush and splashing water. After a few minutes, she popped out with the bird.
She is super smart, athletic and a real sweetheart when there aren't any birds around. She's the perfect pet/gundog combo.
She's ready for her trip to Gundog Disneyland (aka Montana/South Dakota) in a couple of weeks.I couldn't be happier with her. We've still got some things to work on, but that will be going on for awhile still.
Submitted by: Patrick Brown on Sep 30, 2012I am the proud parent of a Tri-Lab Kennel Pointing Labrador (Sean Isaac). His name is Tri-Lab Knight's Porter and he is a black male born 20 October 2011 from Tiger and Coco.
While visiting my brother a couple years ago, he had just picked up his second lab (Gunner) from Sean and what a great looking dog with terrific disposition! After a few visits and failed attempts to steal my brother's dog I decided to see if I can get one for myself. Due to my job (a lot of travel) I had concerns of my ability to spend time with him and could I find people to watch him while I traveled. I spoke to my brother about my concerns and he helped me tremendously by stating that every dog that has come from Sean has had the same disposition as his dogs, very easy to train and are the smartest he has encountered.
Dec 2011, my brother and I went hunting with his dog and wow was I impressed! We couldn't get our gear on fast enough and birds were being found, that's when the decision to send my dog to Tri-Lab Kennels for training was solidified!
The next day we picked up Porter and four days later we were on a flight back to Virginia. Within a few days I had no concerns for the care of Porter. I had people lining up to watch him if needed, not only is he one of the cutest and most handsome dogs, his personality is so pleasing. No one wants to watch/care for a obnoxious dog and just as my brother assured me, all Sean's puppies aren't, they are friendly, smart and easy to train, he was absolutely correct.
Porter went back to Tri-lab Kennels for training for multiple reasons: I am a novice hunter, know little about training a gundog, have little time, and no resources to attempt to train Porter, but the number one reason is I have hunted with my brother and Tri-Lab gundogs find birds... Sean knows what he is doing!
Porter is a gundog, house dog, family member. Other than work he goes everywhere with me. After his training with Sean , he runs with me in the morning and walks with me at night all off lease. When I need him to heel, sit, or whatever he does it all off lease. I cannot stress how smart this dog is, I show him twice what I want and he's got it... done!
Just as Porter's Veterinarian stated "There is something to be said about good breeders and breeding, that is the nicest Labrador I've seen."
All I can say is if you want a great Labrador Retriever call Sean and if you want a great Pointing Labrador Retriever Gundog, call him again and schedule your puppy's training!
I just got Porter back from Sean's training and cannot wait to get him out hunting, 18 Oct can't come soon enough.
Submitted by: Chad Minnick on Sep 10, 2012I bought a black female from a Tiger/Coco litter born October 2011. We named her Tri-Lab's Rowan.
Rowan has a great personality, loves kids, loves to play. She loves to stretch out in my office and just hang out all day. She likes to ride around in my truck with her nose out the window as I run errands around town. She's so laid back and has such a great personality that you'd be shocked at the enery this dog has when a bird is involved.
That easy-going dog enters the water for retrieves like a torpedo. Loves loves loves the water.
But heck, all Labs like water, right? But she's not really an upland dog, right? Wrong.
She has a point as strong as any dog I've hunted over. Earlier today I was working her on chuckar and she's loping along with her nose in the brush when "bam!" she rubber necks and locks on a point, all crouched like a panther. She held her point on a half-dozen chuckar today and NEVER bumped a bird. No creeping either. I had trouble finding a couple of the birds who held tight and she held a point for over a minute twice without moving a muscle or without even moving her head.
I can't say enough good things about this dog.
As happy as we are with the dog, I'm equally enthusiastic about Sean's training program. I put Rowan through Sean's puppy program where he introduced her to birds, and got a really solid foundation on her. To the point where I could actually take her out and hunt over her...just making sure I'm reinforcing and practicing what she learned. I still have work to do to get her finished, but I honestly didn't recognize my dog after Sean had her for a few weeks in training.
In short, you simply HAVE to check out Tri-Lab's pointing labs if you're looking for a good all-around gun dog with a great personality. And do yourself a favor and invest in the puppy program as well. You'll be glad you did!
Submitted by: Bob and Karen Phillips on Sep 05, 2012Bob and I (Karen) have had labs for years. The number one breed around. We have had backyard bred labs, newspaper labs and one just given to us. There is absolutely no comparison to the labs Sean and Angela breed and train. Their dogs confirmation, attitude, personality, ability to hunt and inteligence is far above any expectations. We have purchased 3 of their labs, and could have sold anyone of them at any given time.
Sean has taken the time to teach us about our dogs and their outstanding hunting ability. Bottom line, he is training us, the dogs already know.
Again Sean And Angela, thank you for mastering the art for a "Perfect Hunting Dog".
Bob and Karen Phillips
Submitted by: Jeff Wood and Family on Aug 28, 2012We recently purchased a Tri-Lab puppy. We are extremely pleased with him. He is very smart and already knows his name,Jake, in a period of five days. He will be a family dog and enjoy his life on the farm woth the horses, cats, and chickens. I know I will have fun training my Tri-Lab puppy. Thanks, Sean !
Submitted by: Jonah & Tiffany Lemoine on Mar 26, 2012We purchased our "Tenacious Tess" from Sean about a 1 1/2 ago. My Son Jonah had been waiting for 2 years for the chance to finally start looking for a Chocolate Lab Female. We fequently watch a outdoor hunting channel which lead us to calling a friend of Sean's, Pat Murphey, who is the host of Jonah's favorite hunting show. He sugguested that we give Sean a call. Did I mention we live in Texas!! Well...long story short, Sean made it possible for Jonah to have his dream come true!! She is the most beautiful, loving, smart dog around!! Tess is just a 1 1/2 she is currently working on hand signals, and doing exceptionally well!! We plan on sending her back to Sean for Stud service within the next couple of years. Thank you Sean for the gift of a lifetime for Jonah!! Sincerely, Tiffany
Submitted by: Jim Smith on Mar 11, 2012I've had labradors for over 40 years and had bred them for the first twenty years of that. I professionally trained all breeds of gundogs and was also AKC licensed to judge Spaniel Hunting tests from Junior through Master hunting tests. I think this gives me some credability to comment and compare dogs.
We got a chocolate male puppy from Sean 5 months ago and are extremely pleased with him. Not only is he extremely good looking and balanced but he is talented, very intelligent, eager to please, and tractable.
At this young age he shows great marking ability and memory. These qualities are in his genetics (thanks to Sean) Dogs are either born with the ability to mark falls or not. You can improve on that abiliity but it has to be there to begin with. They can either mark fallen birds or or they can't. This guy can. His parents were selected to pass on that trait. They did.
Our puppy(Rye) is trainable, responds readily to minimum correction, and above all is honest in in his performance in that if he doesn't do what I want, I have failed to show him. He does not refuse a command out of stubbornness.
I have trained hundreds of dogs of my own and other peoples' and this puppy in my best objective opinion rates in the top one percent of them. If you want an exceptional dog , call Sean get in line, put down a deposit and wait. However long it takes it will be worth your while.- Jim
Submitted by: Mark and Chelle Miller on Feb 29, 2012We picked out one of Tiger and Miah's pups that were born on Thanksgiving of 2011. Sean was great to work with and we enjoyed the entire process of picking out our pup. Jeger is now about three months old and is very healthy with a great personality already. We have an older lab and also three kids--Jeger is great with all of them. He's mild mannered and sweet but when you bring out a pheasant wing or anything else with a scent of bird on it, he goes nuts. We've had a few labs and we already know Jeger is going to be both a great family pet and an amazing hunter.
