Marty has trained several labs for me and I could not be happier with the quality of his work. We hunt our dogs almost daily in various habitats and Marty makes sure that they can handle whatever is thrown at them. They add a great deal of enjoyment to our hunts for our guests. I would say that our guests enjoy watching a well-trained and energetic lab almost as much as watching a flock of mallards dropping through the trees. I highly recommend Marty Roberts and Sporting Life Kennels to anyone that is looking for a well trained and even-tempered lab that can be enjoyed by the whole family all year long.

Marty Roberts is a Southern Gentleman. his depth of character is reflected in the quality of the dog I purchased from him. His training engendered a dog that is gentle, sensitive, obedient, and a pleasure to be with. Yet Marty's gun dog training is trans-formational. Will, the dog I purchased from him, becomes energetic, focused, and driven when the whistle or bumper comes out. It's as if he has the internal switch that goes off when it is time to work. Will really has two personalities - and easy to be with, comfortable pal, and a hard-working, obedient servant. I highly recommend buying one of Marty's dogs.

It was a tough decision to travel 1,500 miles just to get a British lab pup from Marty, but worth every yard of the trip! Our new pup, Simba, has been a joy to raise and has become an integral part of our family. Simba is now a few months shy of 2 years old, has retrieved over 150 ducks and geese in hunting situations, and will be finishing her training this year by polishing her ability to use hand signals and learning field hunting techniques before next season. If you want to get the very best hunting lab from someone who is willing to help you in any way possible, I can't recommend anyone more highly than Marty Roberts at Sporting Life Kennels!
