In his teens, he was introduced to quail hunting by a family friend and instantly developed a passion for bird dogs and upland bird hunting. In 2001 he purchased a Brittany pup he named Major. His appreciation for the sport along with his “get involved” attitude quickly led him to a position on the Board of Directors for UFTA. In 2009, he started Majorline Gundogs named after his favorite hunting / trialing companion for the past 9 years.

He began his career as a professional dog trainer and handler soon after high school. While Brad had always been an avid hunter and outdoorsman, he got his first lab, “Bo” and trained him that year. A family friend didn’t have time to train his own dog, so he gave him to Brad to train. That’s what got him started in the business. After that first experience, local hunters began to bring their dogs to Brad for training. He started small, training dogs in his spare time. Mossy Pond Outfitters, LLC goes hand and hand with Mossy Pond Retrievers the outfitting business conducts both quail, pheasant, and duck hunting trips.

My passion for hunting/fishing and the outdoors has deep roots. Growing up, there were Brittany Spaniels and German Shorthairs in our home for as long as I can remember. Then, in what started as a rescue program, I started loving labs. Labradors have now been a part of my life for many years. Sandra and I have developed our passion for these truly incredible dogs in to a great business. Shotshell-labs blends so well with our passion for the outdoors, and it is certainly a blessing to have such wonderful animals. At Shotshell-labs, we bring the long standing tradition of Labradors being the "gentlemans dog" back to the breed.

"I have fed many other brands of dog food with varying results. In the past I mixed multiple foods for certain dogs to try to keep weight on them and try not to give them a horribly loose stool. Now that I have made the switch to Loyall, I don’t have to fool with mixing different foods, all of my dogs now get Loyall and they are all doing great on it. Another benefit I have found since switching to Loyall is smaller, firmer stools. The energy levels of my dogs are amazing and their recovery times after being worked hard are incredibly low. The performance of my dogs in the field is at an optimum level thanks to Loyall!"
Jeremiah Mohr has been a fierce individual competitor all his life. From setting High school track and field records, to winning World Championship IBO archery tournaments, Drag Racing and Long Distance Rifle Shooting. Every hobby and past time has turned into a personal quest to achieve perfection. Bird dogs became his passion in the late 90’s. For him it added a new twist to individual sports … making himself and a dog work together as a single unit in perfect unison. Nestled in central West Virginia the middle of the Appalachian Mountains, MOHR-OHI kennels have dedicated countless hours and dollars developing a proven line of outstanding top quality German Shorthaired pointers.
“My main goal with Bird dogs has always been to produce a top quality hunting dog that ANYONE would be proud to own. I found UFTA field trials to be the best way to compete and evaluate my dogs against some of the best in the country . Endurance, Intelligence, Drive ,and Unrivaled Desire are all things that I demand from my dogs. Loyall dog food has helped me give my dogs the nutritional edge they need to be successful. The puppy formula is the best there is hands down. Nothing gives them a better start . The Professional Formula is my choice, it gives them a lean , muscled build with a glossy shiny coat, bright eyes and clean healthy teeth and gums. Opti-cook process gives them a good hard consistent stool with one bowel movement per day . (which makes kennel clean up worth every penny alone) The natural source of glucosamine keeps them limber and helps prevent injuries. Good hunting dogs hunt hard ,but if you really want to put your dog food to the test, hunt in the mountains for a week, after a few days you will visibly see the quality of your food. Loyall is the only dog food available that will perform consistently at that level and above. From someone whose life long motto has been “Demand Quality and Accept Perfection” Loyall Dog Food will give you the results everybody else promises.”

Lone Oak Retrievers
J. Paul Jackson began training dogs after receiving a Labrador retriever (Lab) puppy for Christmas over twenty-five years ago. At the time he knew that he wanted a well-trained hunting companion, and that he wanted to do the training required to achieve that goal himself. After a few months of working with that first dog, Casey, J. Paul realized that he was addicted to dog training, and decided that someday he would turn his passion into his occupation.
Finally in 1997, J. Paul opened his own training kennel, Lone Oak Retrievers. Located in Dyersburg, Tennessee it is one of the most recognized and successful dog training facilities in the nation. While almost all of the retrievers they train are hunting dogs, they have expanded the operation to other breeds and types of training. They also compete in over thirty (30) field trail and hunt test events annually. To date, they have turned out over fifty (50) Hunting Retriever Champions and Master Hunters.
In 2004 J. Paul took the Gold Medal in the ESPN Great Outdoor Games Retriever Trial, and in 2005 and 2006 he took Silver in the ESPN Super Retriever Series Crown Championship. Since 2009, J. Paul has been the host of Drake Waterfowl’s TV series, Drake’s Migration Nation, which airs on The Sportsman Channel. Today, Drake’s Migration Nation is one of the most watched waterfowl series on outdoor television.
Blazing Red Kennels
I have competed Labrador, Flatcoated, Chesapeake bay, and Golden Retrievers in AKC, UKC, and APLA hunt tests, and have titled dogs to the GRAND HUNTING RETRIEVER CHAMPION level, which is the elite level of the Hunting Retriever Club! I have also qualified and run AKC's Master National test and has earned enough Master Hunter titles to qualify annually for the Master National. I have passed the Master National 3 years running 2011, 2012, 2013 with my own dog Flame, making him MNH. I have also competed in 2 QAA trials with Flame the first one in 2010 earning a 2nd place earning him the QAA status.
My extensive knowledge of making an excellent Upland Game dog is un-compared. I have trained and handled many flushing dogs to earn their Upland Hunter titles in HRC. I have handle and trained Pointing Labradors earning APLA titles as well. In the fall you can find me out guiding Upland hunts. I guide professionally at Maple Glen Farms in West Alexandria OH. Then on to MS to duck hunt and train for the rest of the winter. I am a avid hunter also starting with Sept. Dove hunts in Ohio, South Dakota Pheasant hunting to Duck hunting in MS.
I feed Loyall Active adult and I will not change. I cannot say how many dog foods I have tried and how much research I have put into trying to find a dog food that gives my dogs all they need. Loyall is that food. My dogs look great and preform awesome. Plus they love the taste of a loyall even my picky eaters. I will promote Loyall as long as I own my kennels and train dogs.
Wax Lake Retrievers
My name is John Wilson and I am owner/operator of Wax Lake Retrievers. I have trained dogs for over ten years and in that time have titled dogs at all levels of AKC and UKC hunt test, but my biggest accomplishment has been the hundreds of dogs I have trained that spend their time afield with their proud owners. They are the dogs that successfully everyday recover game for their owners and by night become an important part of the family.
At my kennel facilities in Durant, MS we feed and recommend Loyall brand dog food. When you feed large numbers of dogs like we do you can really see if a feed is high quality or not. Our dogs have slick healthy coats and have tons of energy in the field. Feeding Loyall has been one of the reasons for our success here at Wax Lake Retrievers.
