Bought a black lab from Doug on June 19,2022. He was very nice to deal with and very professional with questions I ask. It was a very hot day so I didn’t see the dad. So Doug if you could send me a photo of Rocky and Cooper ( Mom and Dad) I would like them for my puppy book. I totally love my little (big) boy. His name is Rocky Balboa Sylvester Stallone. My granddaughter loves him and says thank you. Also was shocked with her took a leash and walking by me right away. Again thank you for my baby boy so much. Susan and Khloie (my granddaughter)

We absolutely love our sweet red lab from Doug. Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a more relaxed breeder to buy from yet quality dogs!


LaTonya Erikson

Beautiful puppy. Such bad lines behind her though we couldn’t breed her because of her hips! Vet said that breeder should not be breeding! Contacted seller and he said well give her back and pick a different one…….yeah no thanks!!!! Not recommended!!!!!!!


Signe Harding

This was by far the worst experience Ive had with a breeder. He is so unprofessional and rude. Went to look at puppies and its a puppy mill and his interactions with them were very aggressive. I would never recommend this place to anyone or give any money to him. He has a short temper when its not an instant sale and is very degrading. Was screamed at on the phone and was told we were playing games with him as we were not sold on a puppy yet. Spend your money elsewhere. Look at his responses to reviews, very rude and narcissistic.


Paul Erikson

We purchased a female, with later intent of breeding. I had preliminary hip tests done, and she failed with flying colors. Vet said, under no conditions breed. Contacted him, since he gave a verbal guarantee. He said he would give a discount on another one, or take her back. He does no guarantees or testing. Kids loved her, terrible hips, and not even usable for hunting by two years old, so just a gimped up house pet. Beautiful puppies, but if you’re going to pay as much as he wants, search for a more reputable breeder.
