We’ve compiled a list of the most helpful reviews for this breeder below. We’ve included both positive and negative (if applicable) reviews to give you a better idea of the type of breeder you’re considering.
I brought my dog Ayla here for obedience training because I’ve never owned my own dog before and was looking for guidance. Courtney was extremely helpful throughout the entire time. Her trainer Shawn was absolutely amazing. He is very knowledgeable and gave me a lot of advise.
I’ve had Ayla home for over a week now and she’s been great. I took her to a children’s birthday party today, it was her first event, and the kids loved her. She followed all commands perfectly and the adults praised me for how well behaved she is, especially for a puppy surrounded by hyperactive screaming children lol.
I’m really glad I brought Ayla here, she’s been amazing.
We brought our German Shorthaired Pointer for blood tracking training, and they have done a wonderful job! Between the versatility of training and the care they give the dogs, we give them a double thumbs up.
We purchased a 10 month old premium started lab from Ace’s Retrievers in February 2023. We are from out of state and were nervous about purchasing a dog from halfway across the country. Ace did an amazing job to answer all of our questions extremely thoroughly. He sent us multiple video’s an, has a great vlog of each dog showing their progress. It was so reassuring to deal with Ace even without ever meeting the dog first. Ace provided incredible customer service by getting e-collars ordered for us, crates that would fit perfectly, and food suggestions. He also helped us pick a dog that best suited for our family needs as well as our hunting needs. We were able to spend two days on the facility when we picked him up and got one on one time with Ace and his trainers to go over all the training with the dog. Ace is very organized, had all the dogs records and tips for training and transition into the home. Even after we got him home, Ace continues to provide us quality and professional tips and advice and videos to help us continue our training. This dog was very steady and we get many compliments on his training even as a 10 month old. We have loved the new addition to our family. We couldn’t be happier and we highly recommend Ace and would use him again.
I signed a contract for a dog with Ace Retreivers. They posted videos in the beginning showing progress for the dog. They said their was issues with the website and did not post videos of the dogs progress towards the end. When the dog was supposed to be ready, I rode out to their facility to see how far along the puppy was. Unfortunately the dog did not want to retrieve at all. When I put down the deposit, Ace said that he would trade out the dog if there were any issues. So I said hey Ace, can you give me a dog that is ready?? Ace was more than happy to give me a dog that would retrieve for an up charge of $800. I agreed and left with a dog that would retrieve, but not deliver to hand. I immediately took the dog to the vet where he received proheart 12. Heartworm medicine that has had two clinical studies and has 100% efficacy. They next time I went to the vet, the dog tested positive for heartworms. I contacted Ace he offered for me to bring him the dog and his vet would treat him. I thought and still do that Ace owes me at least half of the money paid back for this half way trained dog that has heartworms. Needless to say, I told him no thanks.
My thoughts: if you are looking for a hunting lab puppy, join a few groups on Facebook for Labrador owners and seriously consider doing the training yourself. If you are a dedicated owner, aces group won’t be able to hold a candle to what you do for your dog. If you don’t believe me, I’ll be happy to show you my 8 month old puppy that is further along than my $4200 heart worm infected dog that came from Aces retrievers.
DO NOT BUY A DOG FROM HERE. I’ll be happy to show anyone proof of purchase when ace claims he never did business with me.
These dogs do not receive the proper treatment or training. Highly do not recommend.
Would not recommend. Poorly trained dogs with health problems.
