We are thrilled with the traits presented in Trace... particularly being downline from Kenai.

Trace pointed her very first bird and every bird after.
She has a calm mouth, and a very good "off-switch"

Her hertiage traces to Tiger Mountain dogs.

Sauk River Retrievers is committed to providing Premier Gundogs at a price that the general public can afford.
Price doesn't determine quality. Titles don't determine quality. Genes and rearing practices determine quality. Selecting quality traits is our #1 service to our new owners. Anyone can count GMPR's and FC's in a pedigree.
We make every effort to stay true to finding the dogs with the traits that hunters value. Dogs that people will be successful with. That means we buy and evaluate a lot of dogs each year. We also see dogs from all over the country.
in our training program. By working with dogs from breeding programs throughout the country, we certainly have an increased ability to evaluate what is really good in the pointing lab world. That's what
the Sauk River program is about. Selecting the best genetics in the PL world. You get what you breed for, not what you pay for. We aren't afraid to purchase dogs with no titles, or breed to studs with lower titles.
If their traits are better...we want that dog in our program. Sauk River Retrievers is out to provide a service to our new owners. That service is to sort through and select the best possible set of traits for
an outstanding pointing retriever. Sauk River prices may not be as high as some. Rest assured...Your Sauk River Labrador is bred to be a premier gundog.
The Sauk River Rearing / socialization Program: A good thing made better.
As a person who buys many pups each year to evaluate,...I am less concerned about my pick in the litter than in how the pups are reared and socilaized. Jane is able to spend a great deal of time with our pups...getting them used to positive touch and being handled....spotting any dominance / submissive issues and regrouping pups accordingly. Pups are exposed to various people, vehicles, obstacles, surfaces, noises...and of course birds. Jane has become very good at what she does. She is allowing owners to experience an even better start with their young Sauk River pup. I trust Jane to choose all Sauk River pups right now. You can trust her socialization / early start program for your upcoming puppy.
As 2020 proceeds...  We remain proud of our planned breedings.   Jane and I have worked to keep prices within
reach of the majority of hunters.
Our pricing is a committment to the average hunter who wants to access the best Pointing lab breedings in the nation.
If you are looking for breeding stock,   or have plans to breed your dog,   please talk with us about your plans.     We are excited to have some of our pups in other breeding programs. but we will be selective.
Sauk River obtains OFA and CERF certification or prelims on parents.   Pups have shots,   anti-coccida,   anti giardia meds,   Superdog stimulation from
days 3-16,   full socialization,   dews removed.   We back our pups with the     SAUK   RIVER   GUARANTEE.
How deposits work.
Most often, our litters are sold by deposit before the dogs are bred.
* Your deposit is your comitment. It is important that you are sure.
* Your deposit of $200 will be cashed and deposited to keep your records current.
* You must choose to deposit on either a male or female. You may switch gender, but only behind other depositors on the list.
* The deposit counts toward the purchase price of the pup.
* If a pup of the gender you deposited on is not produced... Your deposit is refunded or you can switch it to another litter.
* The First depositors on male and female may choose their own pup. I will choose for everyone else based upon traits desired by the depositor. I match pups in the order of deposit. Please send a note with your deposit. List the gender you chose. List traits in the order of importance.
* Please keep in mind the order of pick has little to do with how great your pup is going to turn out. Much more important is the time you spend with it after you pick it up and of course the single most important factor is the breeding. We always say if you want a great dog forget color and pick order and just look at the traits the parents are bringing into the breeding.
example of traits list:
prefer lighter yellow
prefer blocky head
prefer strong chance of pointing
