When we heard from a family member that Jennifer was training some labrador puppies earlier in the year, we knew we had to go see them! During our visit, we fell in love with a beautiful yellow lab, Sandy (formerly Pelancy). After getting to know us better, Jennifer assured us that Sandy would be a perfect match for our family and she was right. We were looking for a loving family dog, as well a skilled hunting partner – and she is definitely both! While Sandy was at QK, we visited a couple of times so that we could get to know her better and learn some of Jennifer’s tips and techniques. Jennifer also took the time throughout the summer to text us and send us video updates on Sandy’s progress, which we really appreciated.
Thanks to amazing training and dedicated work from everyone at QK, Sandy is so well behaved, friendly with everyone (our family and friends adore her too), and so driven in the field. We’ve gone upland hunting with her three times already. She flushes over ten birds every time and does blind retrieves directly to hand. She also loves water retrieves so we’re looking forward to doing some duck hunting with her in the near future. At home, she is just so sweet, playful, and loves to be around us. We have had so much fun with her and can’t wait for many more adventures together!
Thanks to Jennifer and the rest of the QK staff – we couldn’t be happier with Sandy! And we hope we’re lucky enough to get her a new puppy brother or sister from QK in the future 🙂
