I have been breeding Quality chocolate labradors for the field and family for more than 30 years. My focus is on a calm, loving disposition with the desire and focus to accomplish anything taught/asked by our owners. I raise one litter per year in our family environment on 2.5 acres. Chocolate labs are my main focus. All of my dogs are OFA Excellent or Good, Elbows NL, Cerf clear, EIC and CNM clear. I do Early Neurological Stimulation with all my pups. I have many many references and repeat owners. This is my passion, I'm very proud of my pups. Sincerely, Nancy Meyer

I lost my first chocolate lab in 2009 and wasn't sure I wanted to get another dog. I did some research on lab breeders in the area and over the internet and when I decided to get another dog Dreammeyer Labradors and Nancy Meyer was the best choice I could have ever made!!! Before putting a deposit down on my chocolate lab (Allie) with Nancy, we spent an hour and a half on the phone... her getting to know me and me getting to know her. When Allie was born, Nancy sent a variety of pictures as the weeks went on until I would finally pick her up. Allie is not used for hunting or agility but I couldn't ask for a better "best friend" and I am so glad that I went to Dreammeyer Labradors and Nancy Meyer to get her!! She is very spoiled here in Whiting, IN and she enjoys walks and swims in Lake Michigan as well as runs in the park. I would definitely recommend Dreammeyer Labradors!!

I researched chocolate Labradors looking for a field champion who had all the health clearances. Dreammeyers had all clearances with titles! Nancy's females and males who she breeds with are very healthy and strong. I received a female chocolate who was one of the fastest dogs I've seen. When completed a "bulldog" at a hunt test, Addi would be back at the start line before the bulldog was thrown! After receiving her MH title, my dog now is running agility competitions and has been one of the top 10 agility Labradors in the United States. I will purchase another dog from Nancy. Actually my husband has a new puppy from her. They are family raised and loved.

Just put down my chocolate lab that I purchased as a puppy 12 years ago from Nancy at DreamMeyer labs. He was out of DreamMeyer's dog Kitty and Nan Dool's Elwood Blues. He was the best dog I ever owned. He won't be easily replaced. Nancy takes great care in looking for the enthusiastic and driven yet focused and quiet characteristics that are most important in a great duck dog. I'm back working with her on a replacement dog. She's so knowledgeable about chocolates and aims to put out great hunting dogs that are also marvelous companions and great family dogs! Can't wait to see what comes next from her!

I purchased a female pup from the spring 2013 stella/tick breeding. I was very happy with the experience and appreciated Nancy's knowledge and dedication to breeding special dogs. I am very happy with my dog and she is amazing. She is extremely bold, eager to learn, easily trainable and loves to hunt. She is also amazingly strong, fast and agile. If you are looking for a wonderful family dog and companion with a lot of hunting ability Nancy should be able to help you out.

I was able to reserve and get a Rose/Elwood pup from DreamMeyer earlier this year. Her name is Grace. If you want a quality Labrador with great temperament who will make a wonderful pet, hunting dog, or companion then this is the place to go. DreamMeyer labs are perfect for whatever you are looking for in a Labrador retriever. Nancy will guide you through the process and keep you up to date at every step along the way with pictures, videos, and then great support after you take your new pup home. I highly recommend Nancy and DreamMeyer

I have a 4 month old female from Nancy out of her Rose x Ice breeding. I was looking for an agility dog and Dyna is every bit as Nancy described her: smart, cunning, fast, happy to learn new things, and fearless. She has drive to spare outside, but is remarkably calm indoors -- and she loves to cuddle.
Dyna is my 5th dog (4th agility) and what sets her apart is her attentiveness to me even in new environments. She will go check out new sights and smells but not for long, and then she returns to my side. A couple of my prior dogs did have this attention also, but not at this young age.
I did get Dyna with the intention to train her for agility (which I will), but given her natural birdiness I am also going to work on hunt test training.
My entire experience with DreamMeyer labs was great. Nancy was very honest and open about the pups. I wanted a male, but Nancy told me the way the pups were developing she could not sell the male to a performance home. She offered me a male from another breeding with the pups due in 6 weeks. I was planning to take the offer when a week later she called and asked if I would consider a female. A pet home was supposed to take Dyna, but it was clear she was going to be more than they were ready for at the time. Nancy's description of Dyna was too compelling. Dyna is amazing and I will not hesitate to go back to Nancy when I'm ready for another pup.

I am a professional retriever trainer in NY and have had the opportunity to work with four dogs from Nancy's amazing line of very talented and trainable chocolate Labrador retrievers. I have trained two of the them to be master Hunters by the age of 2 1/2 years old and am currently running the other two in the master level. I have one of her females that will be running the master national in Alabama this October.
I would highly recommend any of Nancy's breedings to anyone looking for a competitive Labrador retriever.

Last summer, my 11 yr old black lab passed away. The breeder that my last 3 black labs came from was retired, so needed to find a new breeder. A friend mentioned that Nancy had one black lab pup. Even though I live about 15 miles from Nancy, I had not heard about Dreammeyer Labs, so I checked out her website and was impressed with her dogs.
From the first impression visiting her website,to our initial phone call and visit to see the pup, Nancy was great. She took great care during our phone call to make sure that I knew that Puck needed to go to an owner that was an avid hunter with the time and patience to work with him. She knew and described Rose's Black Lab male pup she called "Rascal" (we named him "Puck") to a tee.
I brought a couple of pheasant wings to test Puck's birdiness and his nose. He found the wing in the bushes 3 times and by the 3rd time he was hunting. Puck had the nose and hunting instincts that I was looking for. Nancy's instincts were right on and we are extremely happy with our decision.
Puck is a 63 lb bundle of enery that was hunting, marking and retrieve pheasants at 6 months. He is a very quick learner and eager to please. We can't wait until he gets his first trip to the Dakotas this fall.
We were fortunate enough to be able to visit and check out Nancy and Dreammeyer Kennel before buying Puck, but for those of you out of state, you will not find a better person or kennel to make sure you're getting not only a great lab, but the right lab for you.
Dreammeyer is known for their chocolate labs, but those looking for a black lab should seriously consider a black lab out of Dreammeyer's Rose.
