And I did it again. I loved my first Lab from Hickory Nut Kennels so much I went back for seconds. Just last weekend I brought home a bundle of yellow puppy love known as Gunnar. I am proud to call James and Liz my friends. They are wonderful people devoted to their Labs and the breed. Their Lab babies come from solid parents and James works hard to keep their lines pure and healthy. As for training - wow - the tips he has offered are world class. Training without harm or discomfort for the dog (or owner) is his forte. If I had room, I'd buy a chocolate and have a variety pack!

We had visited with Hickory Nut Kennel puppies almost every weekend at Bass Pro Shops in Leeds, AL for a year before we took the leap. My husband had always loved Labs. I was a German shepherd girl. I promised him we would get a Lab and we did - from Hickory Nut Kennels. My daughters and I went to their kennel located in Cullman, AL and were welcomed with open arms. We played with Lab puppies and Golden puppies as well as seeing the parents and witnessing their temperaments. James spent a couple of hours talking to us about British Labs and training. I was sold. We brought home the newest member of our family that afternoon - 4-month old Jaxsyn. He is a sparkling black bundle of fun and love. Six months later my husband passed away and I was so grateful for Jaxsyn during his illness. He never left my husband's side after he came home on hospice. After his passing Jaxsyn and I have been inseparable. He is not a trained gun dog but he is a certified emotional support dog and has given the quiet love and support I have needed. I would never dream of getting a Lab anywhere else. Jaxsyn is the calmest, coolest, and most devoted and loving companion I have ever had. If you are looking for a family companion to be your friend through thick and thin - Hickory Nut Kennels is the place to go.

I got my first lab from James about 15 years a go it was a trained yellow female named LIZ see was a great hunter and family dog. Since that time I have owned two other Lab,s from James. My 1 year old that I have now is doing great with his training and I believe he will be the best retriever I have owned. I believe his breeding program is producing better dogs than ever before.

When looking for a puppy about 9 months ago I knew I wanted a lab but did not know much at all about them. After talking to James multiple times I decided I would take his word and give his a shot and man am I glad I did! I got a yellow lab that was 9 weeks old and he has been the best decision ever made. At 6 months old he was picking up doves in heavy cover and has already tracked and found 5 deer this year and can't wait to get him on some ducks! Plus he is the best house dog I have ever had. If you buy a dog from James he will do everything he can to help you, before and after you have purchased your dog, with anything from simple obedience to running in field trials. The yellow lab, Kemper, has been so great we bought a black Drake puppy today that is only 6 weeks old and his name is Sumter. I know he will be just as great as Kemper. I would recommend Hickory Nut Kennels to everyone, you won't be disappointed!

We purchased Annie, our chocolate lab, in December of 2013. She has had two training lessons with James and Liz which has added to her early development as a duck dog. They have been honest and have a great knowledge of training. Annie is a very intelligent, loving, and loyal dog. We want to thank James and Liz for being breeders that care. We would recommend Hickory Nut Kennels to anyone interested in purchasing a pup or for traing a dog.

I purchased a pup from James in December from Moses and Daisy. I must say I have been around dogs my whole life and I have never had a dog quite like this one.... Her name is Shuggie. She is everything James said she would be plus some. She is the most docile dog I have ever owned very intelligent and eager to please. I would like to Thank James for his hard work.... It shows thru is animals... Thanks James.

Our beloved Kate came out of Moses and Jazzie in Feb 2011. She is the sweetest, gentlest dog our family has known. Everyone in town knows and loves Kate. James does a fantastic job with breeding his dogs and cares for each of them tremendously. I recommend Hickory Nut to everyone who asks about Kate...and they all do!
