We bought Dakota from Johnson Labrador Retrivers in late December of 2011 after searching off and on for approximately a year. We were looking for a pup that would be a good house dog and a good hunter. After reading the testimonials listed on their web page and talking to Maureen we decided to purchase a pup from them. Dakota is almost six months old and I can't believe how fast she learns and her high drive when making retrieves. I had not planned on her making any water retrieves until the water had warmed up. When I took her to our nearby lake I couldn't keep her out of the water. She loves the water and is already making long water retrieves. She never seems to get tired when making retrieves. She is already noticing birds flying over as she will stop what she is doing to watch them fly by. I have been a waterfowl hunter for several years and have had good dogs. I believe Dakota is going to be an outstanding hunting dog and is already a great companion. If anyone is thinking about purchasing a Labrador I would highly recommend a pup from this kennel.

I have a yellow female from the Johnson's that I consider one of the best hunting retrieving labs I have owned. Dice is what all hunters look for in their search for a hunting dog, and I recommend them.

I purchased a yellow lab pup, Annie from Johnson Labrador Retrievers last winter, she is 11 months old now. I have had Pheasant hunters in from South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Nebraska and nobody can believe how well she is hunting and retrieving. I knew she was going to be good, but I had no idea she would be this good. She has all the natural ability bred into her, it has made my training very easy. The best part of all, she is a great family dog, but when it's time to go hunting, she flips the switch and she is ready to go to work. She can hunt all day long. I've had labs for 40 years, and Annie is the best I have ever had. I would recommend Maureen's dogs to anyone. Larry

We are proud owners of a lab named Bo that we picked from a litter at Johnson Labrador Retrievers. Bo will be one year old this July. We have been labrador people for 16 years (three labs prior to Bo.) Bo is by far the best of the best. Intelegent,comical, passionate, well built and a nose that won't quit. Thank you for doing such an excellent job of breeding.

Here we go again, My wife and I hunt a tremendous amount, on top of that I ventured into Law Enforcement with some of my State Patrol, NSA, and ATF friends. Our dog Meadow, knows three languages now, English, Italian, and Russian; If we are going out on Narcotic Detection I speak Italian to her, if we are doing Vapor Wake studies or detection I speak Russian to her. If we go hunting or have fun its English. What an amazing dog to be able to understand three languages and seperate hunting and K-9 Enforcement work, Oh and by the way she is a fierce hunter. That says alot about the breeding techniques that Maureen does. She is about 26 inches tall, small good looking head, and 83 Lbs. During training she took down a 330 pound law enforcement officer. She is strong as an ox. When we are home she lay's on my wife's lap; but around kids very lovable, if I want her to be mean I use commands. Very Very smart is all I can say up to this point. Fast learner, show her a couple of times and its done!!!! I have law enforcement agencies asking me all the time where we found her. Don't even think; just buy the pup at any price!

I am a 68 year old retired Airline Pilot, I have hunted extensively all my life, in January I bought Tess, she is #6 and probably will be my last Lab pup. Johnson Labrador Retrievers was recommeded to me by my Brother who has one of the breeders pups at this time. Of all the Lab's I have had, Tess is by far the most intelligent, training is a joy, show her once, show her twice and its done. I have had great dogs in the past, but it is very obvious that the best is yet to come, I am so looking forward to opening day this fall and being able to hunt behind Tess. My hat is off to Maureen for breeding such quality hunting dogs, Thank You Don Schlegelmilch

If anyone who hunts needs a quality Labrador, with all of the desirable qualities that a hunter possesses you do not need to look any further. Johnson Labs owner Maureen studies her dogs breeding backgrounds carefully; and then breeds her dogs accordingly. What you get in the long run is a hell of a waterfowl, as well as an upland game dog. Maureen's dogs are water crazy, but they point as well. Do yourself a favor and have a look. Her dogs are worth twice the price. Our dog Meadow was retrieving birds at 10 weeks!!!!! She is extremely intelligent!
