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.

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!

We bought our first Lab puppy from James out of Moses and Kelly. Big Black Male we named Silas. He is exactly what James said he would be. I am amazed at how he is responding. Very Intelligent and really good temperament. Can't wait to see what he will be as he matures. Thanks to James and Liz for sharing their knowledge and wisdom with us. Obviously we highly recommend them!!!

I purchased a 2 year old yellow Lab from Hickory Nut Kennels named Louie. I took him to my vet and she said he was very healthy and the perfect weight for a British Lab. I have taken him hunting twice and he minds very well. Can't wait for Duck season. James and his wife have been great to deal with. I would highly recommend them to any of my friends.

We purchased a 6 week old black female lab puppy "Sadie" that was from Moses and Sandee. She is now 5 months old and is the best dog we have ever owned. She is very intelligent, lives to retrieve (also retrieves in water), and is very friendly. She quickly responded to training commands with very little effort. I can count on one hand the number of times we have heard her bark...she just does not bark! We love her so much that we just put money down on a chocolate lab puppy that will be ready mid-October. I talked to James several times while trying to make a decision on what breed to get as a companion to our Sadie. He and his wife are great breeders and take great care of their animals. I can't wait to pick up our new doghter in October! If you are thinking of getting a dog, definitely consider Hickory Nut will not be disappointed!
