A Labrador is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a versatile sporting dog and an excellent companion. They are good upland flushing dogs and are the best retrievers on land and water. A well bred Labrador has a strong drive for birds and for retrieving, and is evident at a very young age. They are also a joy to train to be obedient around the house or afield.

From the very beginning our goal has been to operate a first class, high quality breeding and training program. Good Go Ing is a full time, professional sporting dog business that is owned and operated by the Gooding family. We personally care for all aspects of the operation. Errol Gooding began raising Labradors in 1966. With over 30 years experience in raising and training Labradors we have the expertise to provide you with a great upland bird, waterfowl and companion Labrador. With the tremendous amount of experience we have had in professional dog training, we are able to objectively evaluate our litters and prospective breeding stock. Only the dogs that pass our standards of desire for retrieving and hunting, physical soundness, temperament and conformation are bred.

Our Labradors are excellent for both upland bird and waterfowl hunting. They adapt well to different types of birds and terrain. We have hunted them in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. They work well on grouse, pheasants, quail, ducks and geese. Our clients hunt them across the county with great success.

We currently have a good selection of puppies available. These pups will be introduced to bird and retrieving at a young age. Several older puppies and young started dogs that have been started on some more advanced training are also available. This work includes retrieving, pistol introduction, water introduction and basic obedience. We also plan to have a few well started or trained dogs available for this season.

These puppies and young dogs are from our top breeding stock and have had excellent opportunities. They can be seen working at the kennel, with an appointment. We can usually show you a few dogs that meet the description of what you are looking for. Our goal is to match each buyer with the dog that they we will be most happy with.

We have held back and evaluated dogs of previous or similar breedings to the ones we are currently offering. These dogs have excellent personalities and have developed into fine upland bird and waterfowl dogs. We hold back and evaluate young dogs as they develop quite frequently. We always want to be aware of the type of dogs we are producing.

Our Labradors are not the least expensive, and we certainly wouldn't want them to be. It is not possible, given the standards and goals that the Gooding's represent. Over the last 30 years a lot of time and care has gone into developing our Labradors and operation into what it is today. We have a reputation for producing quality dogs and standing behind them. We feel our reputation and dogs are able to sell themselves. I'm confident that if you do decide on a puppy from one of these litters or a started dog, you will be very pleased with your investment. If you are truly serious about acquiring a Labrador from a dedicated breeding program, please contact us with any further questions or interest.

Best to you,

The Goodings
