Lab Obedience and Finished Water Dog Training

AB Kennels, located just outside Port Lavaca, Texas, is your choice for Labrador obedience and finished water dog training.  Owner and operator, Captain Nathan Beabout has been a duck hunting and fishing guide at one of the premiere destinations on the Texas coast for 8 years, and knows the value of having a well-trained duck hunting companion.  Now he has established his own guide service N&M Sportsman's Adventures, www.nmsportsmansadventures.com.   Over the years, he has worked with many duck hunting dogs, and had the opportunity to be a part of the training of these dogs. Recently opening AB Kennels at his house, he would like to share his knowledge of training and handling labs with you.  Having a trained dog, makes a well-behaved and versatile companion. 

AB Kennels sits on 3 acres, with a 20 acre hay field to stretch commands and retrieves to over 1oo yards.  The kennels also has access to a 1/2 acre pond for all your lab's swimming needs. Your lab will be cared for like it is our own, because attention and personal interaction are the foundations for a great dog.  Jeff Stavinoha (210) 438-3749 is our breeder out of Stockdale, TX, who provides AB Kennels with a great bloodline of pups.
