Perfect Puppy

Rated 5 out of 5

“Our experience acquiring a Lab from Club Mead has been superb. Diana quickly had us feeling comfortable and confident in our choice of Club Mead. It was apparent that they are experienced and very competent at providing quality dogs in a friendly and professional manner. We took home a beautiful little Black Lab puppy who has turned out to be everything we had hoped for and more. Ivy is bright, she has been totally healthy and has been very well behaved and easy to train. She loves people and other dogs. Ivy is a character and makes us laugh every day. This dog has great potential and we look forward to the journey with her.”

I feel so lucky to have found a pup through through Club Mead. The process from enquiring through going home day was exciting and very informative. We met the dogs who might be the parents in advance, and were able to follow the arrival though regular updates and information from Club Mead. We received the perfect puppy for us because they took the time to thoughtfully understand what we were looking for. Our pup is beautiful, loving, athletic and incredibly smart and eager to engage. Textbook American Labrador, picked just for us!

So professional and easy to deal with. I highly recommend Club Mead. Our pup was flown to us in a very easy transaction to the United States. He’s (Johnny Cash) is smart, handsome and learning quickly.

After posting on Alberta Outdoorsmen forum about working Labradors in Canada I had several people recommend Club Mead. I had planned to visit a few breeders in Alberta, Saskatchewan and one in Manitoba, but after meeting Stu and Diana I knew we found a trustwothy breeder producing what we were looking for. After asking what I wanted, my family situation and a few other questions, Diana selected a pup she thought would be a good fit. She nailed it! My wife and kids often comment about how lucky we are to have such a perfect dog. My hunting and training partners are probably even more impressed with him. At 7 weeks and 1 day he would retrieve anything he could lift. He has been birdy since he saw a bird. He’s a little over a year old now and has tolerated my first time amateur training exceptionally well. Stu and Diana are more than the type of people you want to do business with. The are passionate and driven while being generous, humble and helpful. They made us feel like family from day 1.

After having owned, hunted with, and trialed GSPs in years gone by, I decided to make the jump to a Lab. After having heavily researched breeders in Canada, I reached out to the Meads. That was the start of what has been a wonderful experience. They were very patient with me, and accommodating of my many questions. The pup they chose for me turned out to be an absolutely perfect match for what I was hoping for… a big, hard charging male who would also be a nice member of our family. How can one ask for more? Our little boy Chief (85lbs of chiseled muscle), absolutely lives to hunt and train. Put the collar on him and he transforms from quiet couch potato, to a heat seeking missile who launches himself into heavy cover, and cold water like nothing I have ever seen. Last year was a total blast. He went three for three getting his junior title in one weekend, earning many, many compliments. More importantly to me, he performed like an old pro in the goose fields. By the end of the season, he was routinely marking triples, remembering where the birds went down better than me and my hunting partners.
My favorite memories will be of him marking wounded geese go down clean across a quarter section, and bringing them back like an old pro. Watching your pup leap into the air and snatch down a 12 lb angry honker like he was catching a fly ball is something I will always cherish. Last fall he retrieved well over 200 geese and ducks. The fellows I hunted with all said that there favorite part of the hunt was watching the dog grow by leaps and bounds each trip. To see a dog flourish like that, has been beyond rewarding, and the highlight of my sporting life.
As I have immersed myself in learning about these wonderful dogs, it is pretty apparent that Stu and Diana are not your run of the mill dog breeders, and none of their litters are by chance. They breed dogs taking into consideration individual traits, strengths of lines, and of course health clearances, sparing no expense in the process, all for providing incredible dogs that further the breed. As a result, you will see their kennel name littered throughout the pedigrees of the top dogs in the field trial world, including having one of the dogs they bred win the 2005 National Field Championship (the Super Bowl for retrievers), and be enshrined in the Retriever Hall of Fame in 2014. No other breeder in Canada can make that claim. I also can attest to their skills as trainers, having had them work with my dog for a short period. I couldn’t have been more please with the progress they made, and how they treated my pup as one of their own. I have spent time at their training grounds, and believe me, it is impressive.
I guess you can tell, I am a huge fan. I have recommended them to a number of people who have ended up buying pups from them, and they would certainly echo what I have said.
In closing, if you are looking for a purpose bred Labrador Retriever with drive, intelligence, and tractability, that will also lay down on the couch at your feet, I have full confidence in saying your search should begin and end with Club Mead Labradors. They are that good.
