I absolutely love this family at Bear Creek Labs. They value what they do and they show that this is not just a business for them. I recommend them to my friends and family every time getting a new puppy comes up. They make it an easy, fun, and reliable experience of getting a new puppy. My dog, Kenai came from their Marley litter and he is the most intelligent and loving lab I have ever had and my family has had their fair share of labs.

We brought Lucy home from Bear Creek Labs in July 2019. It has been a joy seeing her grow and become best friends with our daughter. When we expressed initial interest in getting a puppy, Rick invited us over to meet Bailey’s litter before they went to their new homes. We saw how healthy and well cared for not only the puppies were, but their mother as well. We immediately decided we wanted one of our own. One thing is very clear- Rick’s top priority is ensuring each puppy finds a home with families committed to provide love, a healthy environment, and proper training. We were impressed that Rick wanted to get to know us before he was willing to let us take a puppy home. What makes this business so special is not only the quality of puppy it offers, but its pledge to ensure the puppy will have a the best quality of life when they go home. Our Lucy is smart as a whip- was house broken within a couple weeks, eager to learn and please, and….. is just plain silly sometimes! It takes plenty of work of course, but that commitment pays off in so many ways. We love her more and more each day and our daughter adores her. We can’t imagine our life without her.

We recently just purchased a puppy from Bear Creek Labs. I recommend buying from Bear Creek. The two gentleman who raise the pups keep you well informed of the puppies early stages. Id rate higher than 5 stars if I could. Keep up the great work!!
