Two Hightest Pups Go To Arizona Search Dogs!
The two pups out of Blue and Pearl will be part of Arizona Search Dogs Phoenix Fire Department. They will be trained and certified to mobilize with their Urban Search and Rescue Task Force to assist state and local jurisdictions in search and rescue activities. John Dean, head of the program and his partner flew up to pick up the pups and were met by a TV news crew when they landed at Sky Harbor airport in Phoenix! Several Hightest dogs are currently in their program.
Meet Our AKC Master Hunter Labrador Stud Dogs
Dreammeyer Stella’s Blue
Me Away MH
Blue is an incredible dog with an even temperament. He is quick to learn, excellent at marking, and is smokin' fast!
We have been researching reputable Lab breeders in California and heard about Hightest from word-of-mouth. I recently reached out to Highest, as we're searching for a black male labrador to add to our family, and I would like to share with you what a good experience this has been - thanks to Kristie.
I've spoken to Kristie a few times now and to say she has been an absolute pleasure to deal with would be an understatement. Kristie has been extremely professional- responsive and thorough in her explanations to ensure we are on the same page and precluding any misunderstandings. She has been patient and genuinely kind. Our search for this black male lab has been a personal one for me, and so I am especially appreciative of Kristie's professional and warm demeanor. We have spoken with quite a few breeders in this process and Kristie- like Hightest- stands out and sets the bar for how a breeder/kennel should interface with customers.
I have read the articles you authored on your site and take comfort that "a quality pup, selected from a litter selected for good conformation, temperament, and field ability, is worth waiting for." We have not yet even received a puppy from Hightest- I just today joined the waitlist for a black male from Wizard x Tiki and Wizard x Roux - yet I am already confident that we went with the best breeder out there. Kristie has a lot to do with this as she has been our point of contact throughout this process.
We look forward to visiting Hightest soon and adding a sweet puppy to our family!
All my best,
Dear Ole and Hightest Staff,
I would like to express how thankful I am for the opportunity to have purchased such an incredible dog; that Hightest not only bred but also trained.
As a hunting partner I could have not asked for a better dog. Jess never quit and had the strongest desire to execute commands. As for a best friend, Jess was truly the BEST. Not many friends would sit in a duck blind for hours in the freezing rain and watch you miss an easy shot and wag their tail, but Jess always did.
Ole I greatly appreciate the efforts that you put forth in trying to get her bred. Unfortunately Mother Nature had vastly different plans. Calling you was one of the more difficult phone calls I have ever made and you talked to me like one of your kids, this meant more to me than you will ever know. I have nothing but admiration and respect for you.
I have no way of thanking you enough for allowing me to have your pick of the females out of the litter from your SH bitch. It was an honor to have owned a Hightest dog, and a privilege to own another one.
"As an AKC Breeder of Merit participant, you set the standards for all breeders everywhere. You are amoung an elite group whose love for dogs is unwavering; and it carries through in all you do as a breeder and dog owner. The AKC is proud to have you represent the largest, and most respected canine registry in the world!"
