"I've grown up with labradors all my life and it was time for my next hunting lab. My wife and I recently picked up one of Roy's male puppies from a litter born October 2012. We named him, "Bross" (named after the Colorado 14er).
We chose Scott Foulger and his dog Roy at Fetch It Up for two reasons.
1. Roy is a beautifully built, field lab who has all the hunting, retrieving instincts we wanted in our dog.
2. Scott Foulger is incredibly knowledgeable about retrievers and retriever training. He loves the dogs and the sport as much as I do.
Bross is almost 7 months now and we couldn't be happier with our dog! He was doing sit, stay, come on command by 10-12 weeks of age. He loves to retrieve and has the instincts and natural drive I needed for a great retrieving, hunting dog. I can't wait to get Bross in the blind this upcoming season.
If you're looking for a good retriever, hunting dog or family dog, Scott at Fetch It Up Kennels and Roy are the right guys to know."

Here are some pics of Bella Bean. She is doing so well!! She can sit, stay, lay down and fetch. She is really good on the leash and is now sleeping through the night. We are enjoying her so much. She weighs 22lbs last vet check. She is so great with the kids. Thanks again!! Also, these were when the kids were playing in the leaves, she loved it!! Thought she was going to pass out with excitement.

Bea was the first dog we received from Scott. We picked her up at a bit over 4 months and she has been a loyal companion from day one. Bea is a smaller lab, around 50 lbs. at full grown size but a true specimen. She has handled transition quite well - moving to 5 apartments within 3 years, and adjusted quickly to each new environment, whether they be rural and expansive or fairly urban. Bea now lives with my husband and I on 125 acres of beach front property in Newport, Rhode Island where we work at a boarding school. I mention this for two reasons. First, there isn't a day that goes by where we aren't taking Bea swimming, down to the beach for a run, or simply letting her roam the large campus. She loves being outside. But perhaps more important than her love for physical activity is her demeanor and approach to the people in our community. With 350 kids as our next door neighbors, we simply couldn't ask for a better companion. She loves people, aims to please, and never met a tennis ball she didn't like. A retriever at heart, she will fetch until she exhausts herself. While she is certainly an active dog, I have to say she reads a situation well - differentiating between 'go time' and 'down time' with ease. In the house she is calm and restful. We received her fairly housebroken, and we haven't had any incidents to note - no chewing or accidents that I can remember.
Boston (nicknamed Bossy) was purchased in April of 2013 shortly after we completed the Boston Marathon. Like Bea, she has made several transitions in her very short life time. We have had her for less than a year and she has moved from our urban setting in Boston to our summer setting in New Hampshire, spending significant time in Cincinnati, Ohio before finally making it to our new home in Rhode Island. Boston is still quite young and learning the ropes from Bea. But she mirrors her in size, appearance and demeanor. The two dogs adjusted to one another with ease, and there hasn't been any issues integrating Boston into Bea's world. They usually sleep together on the same bed and enjoy sharing their space. They like to play a lot with one another, and their play has become more fun as Boston has grown. They are about the same size at this point and many people cannot distinguish the two from a distance or even up close.
We are 100% satisfied with our pets. The dogs have made great companions for us and are great companions to one another. We haven't had any health issues with either dog, and the vet often comments on their physiques. I'm sad to say we'll have to wait a while to add another dog to our family - two is just right for the moment.
