At the present time we have a 10 month old Yellow Labrador available. Buba has been started on basic obedience and upland game scenario training. We have started him on live birds and have properly introduced him to the gun.
He lived in the house with the former owner: he gets along well with other dogs and kids. He travels well in the car and is very easy to work with.
We are asking $800.00. Interested parties may contact us at 801-540-4661 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m sure from talking to me you understood how concerned I was about starting over with another dog; but, that being said, this is the best and most loving “dog” we have every owned. He is more family member than dog at this point. He is a house dog, has his own bed (that we dutifully move from the family room to our room at night). Actually, he has us trained quite well! He loves Brent! He goes everywhere with him; when Brent goes outback to carve, Bandit jumps in the back of his truck or climbs in one of the chairs and waits for him to finish. The most amazing thing for me is that he actually listens! We have never owned a hunting dog that you can call and he will come to you, the other 2 dogs we owned hunted for everyone else until they were 7 or 8 and needed to slow down a bit. Brent tries to take him hunting pheasants a few times a month and he out hunts both of the other dogs. The first time they took him out, he watched one of the other guys’ big German short hair retrieve a pheasant and the next time the dog started to bring one back, Bandit took it away from him and brought it back to Brent; he has run down pheasants that have been wounded and caught them and brought them back. I could go on and on about this dog/family member. He is great and we love him and if we are lucky, he will live as long as our other 2 dogs (17 years and 14).
Animal Concepts Foundation
We have opened a non-profit rescue facility in order to help save more dogs. Our main goal is to evaluate and place dogs with suitable long-term owners based on the dog’s inherent capabilities and experiences.
What makes us different from other rescues groups is our 25 years experience. Training a wide variety of breeds. Our facility has several grassy fields with an obstacle coarse and even a large pond. We keep the dogs at the facility healthy, happy and active.
Our interactions with the dogs give us an expanded opportunity to evaluate their natural abilities, drives and traits to succeed in a variety of tasks. We have had success in placing dogs that now work at airports searching for contraband and explosives. Others have been successful at search and rescue Operations. We have also placed several as great hunting dogs and family companions.
A local dog that we turned around is now working at Weber State University. K9 Balou, a 3-year-old German Sheppard, bounced from one rescue to another. He is now trained and certified in explosive detection and patrol. Currently we are seeking funds through grants and tax-deductible donations. We also have a need for sponsors and volunteers. Donations of blankets, towels. And gift vouchers are greatly appreciated.
