Our owner Josh has been involved with gundogs, in one form or another, his entire life. Being raised in a very energetic family of outdoor enthusiasts, his father bred, raised, and trained bird dogs of various breeds to support the family’s devotion to upland bird hunting. Irish Setters, English Setters, English Pointers, and Brittany Spaniels were just some of the breeds the family owned and hunted over for decades. Josh learned invaluable skills early on about the relationships and skills needed for gundog ownership by helping his father as a young boy with all of these incredible bird dogs.
We are delighted to train your Brookstone Labrador to any of our offered standards. We abide to a strict policy of only training Labradors that have come from our kennel. This policy in turn ensures our clients the highest level of priority. However, to maintain our stringent quality standards we limit the number of dogs we take in for training. If you would like us to train your Brookstone Labrador we urge you to contact us as soon as possible to discuss availability as spaces fill up quickly.
Brookstone Kennels is situated in the charming rolling countryside of Southeast Missouri. Near the small town of Oak Ridge in North Cape Girardeau County, we are conveniently located in the center of the U.S. where we are approximately 100 miles South of St. Louis or 180 miles North of Memphis on Interstate 55. In the heart of the Mississippi flyway, we enjoy one of North America’s primary waterfowl migration routes leading to exceptional hunting opportunities for ducks and geese. Southeast Missouri is also a premier destination for wild turkey, whitetail deer, and bobwhite quail.
