Lyle, 
This is Allie at 10 weeks of age. (Left)  She is pointing the pheasant wing repeatedly and will hold the point for several seconds already.  She is very affectionate and outgoing.  We are taking daily walks together and she is using her nose and works ahead nicely, yet stays in range.  She is crate trained and only had one accident the very first night.  She has plenty of drive and energy, but can turn it off and settle right down in the house.  She is doing great and we are very happy with her!  (Allie at 6 months right) Thanks!  Tom

Lyle,

Just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how happy we have been with Briscoe over the last year. He is around 60 pounds and has started to slow down in growing.   At 5 months we took him to a trainer for a 2 week gun/bird intro class and he did well.  We have almost 3 acres of space for him to run and play on daily and there is plenty of wildlife to stimulate his hunting nose (pheasant, duck, geese, turkey).  He is pointing birds which is so fun to see and I am excited to do more pheasant hunting with him come fall.  He is really smart and has been a very quick learner.  Thanks again for the wonderful addition to the family!  Joel

Lyle, Boji is doing great.  On the left, he retrieved a duck into the boat at just 4 months of age!  On the right, Boji did amazing on the pheasant opener and is learning so fast!  We couldn't be happier with him!  He weighs 52 pounds at 6 months of age.  Also, today he had a 120 yard duck retrieve and is marking so well on the land and in the water.  Thanks so much for Boji, we love him!  John Mercer

Lyle. After one year Abby is fantastic!! She points and retreived upland birds, great retrieving on all waterfowl, and she just loves to please.  She always tries to do the right thing and is super intelligent.  We absolutely love her!  My mom is 89 and we have had many dogs but she is in love with Abby.  Abby  has given her something to look forward to. We just wanted to say thanks for a great hunting dog and companion. Dudley

Hunting is a special part of my family, especially pheasant hunting.  That took on a whole new meaning after purchasing "Booker" from Schut's kennel.  Booker is a once in a lifetime dog. Not only is he my best friend, but an amazing hunting dog.  I have friends, family, even stranger's longing to come hunting with me and my dog because he's something special.  You do not need to turn on his collar while hunting because he works close and efficient; never missing birds and never straying to far ahead.  Once he finds the rooster, it's a sight of beauty to see him lock up on point, until I say, "Booker, get em up".  He then flushes the bird, and even when I make a bad shot he always retrieves it back to hand, most of the time not even waiting for me to praise him, because he longs to go back out and find another bird.  Out in the field you couldn't ask for a better friend; or in the house, or playing with my nieces and nephew. A big thanks to Lyle Schut and his kennel for giving us such a special gift and a lifelong friend.  If your looking for that next great hunting dog and companion, you need not look any further. Thanks so much!  Tyler Meekma

We chose Jed from Cornstalker Kennels because he was very athletic, and he retrieved for us at 7 weeks. Jed was very aware of what was going on around him, and he always had a strong desire to retrieve from the very beginning.  He always wants more when we are finished training or hunting.  He took to the water immediately and loves to swim, even in the extreme cold.  In his first pheasant season before his first birthday, he found and retrieved over 40 pheasants for us.  To this day, he will hunt all day for us.  He is collar condition, force fetched, and I trained him to do blind retrieves.  Jed and I were chosen to guide for the governor’s hunt in Clay County, IA.  Jed passed his Junior Hunter test in the AKC.  Jed was able to do the work of an AKC Master Hunter, but I did not have the resources to travel for the tests.  Jed is also a great companion for our entire family.  I have also trained several other dogs produced by Cornstalker Kennels and they have shown exceptional ability and have been very successful in my training program. Thanks Cornstalker Kennels!  Gary Van Wettering

Blue has been a wonderful hunting dog and companion for our growing family. His innate ability to both find and retrieve birds in the field has served my husband well while hunting.  He is a house dog who allows our young children to crawl all over him while he covers them with kisses.  He has always gotten along with other dogs and we never have to worry about his behavior in any situation where he will be around other animals or children.  Blue is very high energy when its time to hunt in the field, and he is gentle and mild in our home .  He is a great guard dog who barks when someone approaches our property and seems to alert us when something seems a little off.  We are very happy with our dog and would recommend this breeder to anyone looking for a Labrador Retriever who can hunt and be a part of the family.  Thank you!  Summer Pellett, Nevada
