“Iím so fortunate to have been able to get a chocolate male lab from FC AFC Cuda's Blue Ryder MH X HRCH and Cochise's Adorable Abigail JH “Abby”. Everything about the buying experience was excellent right down to the plane flight and delivery. Bud, which is what my pup answers to is everything Iíd hoped for. Iíve had him a week and he is on his way to being potty trained. He sits on command, crate trained, is working on his on-leash training, and becoming acquainted with birds (live quail). He is a very quick learner and always willing to please. We go everywhere together. Iím looking forward to the day we are hunting duck, pheasant and running trials. I wanted to take a minute and thank you for “Bud”. The buying experience as previously stated was excellent. The excellent care you give your pups is evident in Bud. I would do it all over again, having owned in the past, three professionally trained hunting dogs. This is my second pup from Cuda Blue Ryder. Your web site is very professional, thorough and in depth, full of helpful information and recommendations. I will send pictures as he develops.”

I canít thank you enough!

“Yvette and I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank you and your family for being responsible breeders of such fantastic companions! Attached are some photos of our “Sir Taylor” (Elvis X Abby 2/16/08). As prior owners of multiple labs, I can say without reservation, that the good breed stock, family socialization and true care you put into your pups was evident from the first day we brought Taylor home. Thank you! He is a very healthy dog, fantastic companion, good at learning commands quickly, and is turning out to be a good dock jumper (splash dog). Here are some photos from the Canine Thunder event in Scottsdale last month.”

“Should anyone request a recommendation from you prior to purchasing a pup, please do not hesitate to have them contact me. Again, thank you and keep up the fantastic breeding!”

“Bella, Kenny's puppy is doing VERY well. She is definitely a natural and ABSOLUTELY LOVES to retrieve. The trainer says she is the smartest puppy he has ever seen. I guess she's got brains and beauty! She could have easily gotten her Junior title at 5 1/2 months but there was no place close to take her. She is a wonderful dog and companion in every way and we absolutely love her.”

“My son really only wants Bella to get her Jr & Sr Titles but the trainer seems to think she is “Champion material” and other trainers have told us she is a very special dog. We will keep you posted on her progress.”

“Today its been 5 years since our lab Teuntje was born at your kennel. We named her Teuntje and she is just a sweetheart. We moved back to Holland 2.5 years ago.”

“We just wanted you to know that she is the best dog ever.. so sweet with our 2 year old son and loves to play with other dogs. Take care and thanks again for selling Teun to us. She is one big brown bundle of joy.”

“Hello, I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful puppy! We bought a female chocolate Lab puppy from you guys and we love her sooooooo much!”

“Once all of our family and friends saw her, they wanted one too! We told them all about Cochise Labradors and told them how pleased we are with the quality of service and the beautiful dogs you have. You should be getting some e-mails and phone calls soon regarding people who are interested in purchasing a pup.”

“So again, thank you very much, we are more than satisfied with our little girl. She behaves so well and has the best personality. We absolutely love her. We named her Jovi. ”

“Thanks again and God Bless You.”

“Words aren't enough to tell you just how satisfied and in love we are with Baker. He went to the vet Sat for the last of his shots and he weighed #32 so he's right on target and healthy. As far as his coat, he is a gorgeous dark chocolate with the backbone hair being wavy. He's short legged and long body.”

“Smart you ask? He goes outside and pees on command. He knows he has to sit quietly before he gets fed and while the dish is being placed on the floor, he knows Bob will give him a small amount of warm milk over his food so Baker sits in front of the microwave until that's done. All we have to say is bed and he'll go flying into his cage and sits and waits for his liver piece snack. He knows us by Mom and Dad. He will go to who you tell him to and watch for our vehicles to come home from work so he can greet us at the gate. On grocery day, we let him out of the gate and he goes to the back of the car we then hand him something to carry and he takes it into the house just so proud like you wouldn't believe. He loves that job and doesn't try to get into what he's carrying. He also goes bonkers when we get the other dog's walking collar out cause he knows we're leaving the gate for something fun. He tries to jump up and drag the big dog to make him hurry. He walks on a leash excellent. He likes to get up on the couch and help share our supper. Bob taught him to eat off the fork. He gets on the bed at night long enough to puppy kiss whoever, goodnight. Once in a while if I tell him “no” to something, he will look at me and then bark but that's your little boy temper tantrum, lol. I could go on and on about him.”

“We are so crazy over him and I tell anyone who is interested in getting a lab that I feel would take care of one to get a hold of you or at least check out your website. We can't thank you enough for having the high quality breeding stock you do. You have created hairy little humans in four legged bodies.”
