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.
