    DefaultDeep Marsh

    I just put my deposit down on a started lab. I hunt in thick marsh in southwest la. My question is : I'm told she will only grow to around 55#, will she be tall enough to handle the marsh? I pick her up up in 2 weeks and she has plenty of drive with titles on both parents.

    We hunt in some very thick mud at times, which is also complicated by high cover. My Labs are mostly small (55 -60 pounds) and they have all learned to manage it. I think it's actually easier for a little dog to get out of marshy muddy stuff than for a big dog- although taller dogs have an advantage seeing over the cover You should definitely ask the person you are buying her from if she has experience in the marsh though- if she doesn't, it may be something you want to first introduce in a controlled (training) setting- don't want her first hunt with you to be overwhelming.
