We highly recommend Lincoln Creek Labs for all your Labrador needs. We have used their studs & purchased 2 pups. Justin is very knowledgeable on the bloodlines, he runs a top notch facility. AI service was quick & efficient. Doing business with Justin was easy and we are VERY happy with our pups. They are very well bred and talented. They went through our training program with ease & we are looking forward to a fantastic season of Hunting Iowa Ringnecks. Hilltop Labradors Iowa

I purchased a yellow lab from Lincoln Creek and I was extremely impressed with Justin. He allowed the time I needed to choose the right puppy. He was very available through the whole process of the getting the pups ready to bring home. Now less than a year later, my dog is in her first hunting season and she is unbelievable. She has great drive and very lovable at home with my 3 young children. I can't say enough about my experience with Justin and the dogs he has!

I cannot say enough positive things about Lincoln Creek Kennels. Justin and Lindsey are spectacular! Max came to us clean, healthy and full of energy. The paper work was meticulously ordered, the kennel was spotless on both of our visits, and Max is a very bright dog!
Lincoln Creek Labs is a class act operation!

I bought my pup two years ago and had him shipped to Louisiana. Justin went out of his way to make the shipment go as smooth as possible. My pup was retrieving at only 9months. He has a great tempermant and very eager to learn & please. Everyone that hunts with me want to breed him for a pup. Awesome service Awesome Dog!

I got Ranger from Lincoln Creek in 2008. Made Justin sit there for several hours while I played with each pup and made my decision, and he waited patiently and rotated the dogs as needed. Excellent facilities and excellent service.
Had him in the field at 6 months, and he was finding and flushing pheasant before season was out. Now in his third season, he's a guided missile when he picks up a scent--will chase birds across a field or through the swamp to flush them. Absolute joy to hunt behind. Hunts close, patterns fantastically, can go all day, doesn't chase deer or rabbits, won't fight over a retrieve, and won't kill a bird that hasn't been shot. If he sees it fall, he comes back with it.
I took some ribbing from friends with pointers for getting a field lab for pheasant hunting, but haven't heard a peep out of them this year.
He's been to trainer for 6 weeks each summer to work on obedience. He has a strong desire to learn, and after only 12 weeks is working a field of bumpers on whistles and hand signals. Can mark retrieves at 200+ yards. Could have passed Junior Hunt test at a year, but we couldn't work it. Plan to run Juniors and Seniors this summer, and he'll cruise right through them. We'll likely pursue the UH titling as well, as it comes naturally to him.
And to round it out, he's an incredible house dog. Doesn't bark when left alone. Have never had to put a lid on trash. Walks at heel without a leash. Does what you tell him, loves all people and other dogs, and has a great personality.
Can't recommend Lincoln Creek enough--couldn't have asked for a better kennel, better bloodline, or better dog.

Kennel area was cleaner than any I've ever seen. They have a great facility, and raise their pups in a caring and family-friendly environment. Our pup was obviously very well bred, and well taken care of.

I bought a chocolate lab pup from Justin while I was in Iraq in 2009. These guys went way out of their way to make this purchase possible. Their facilities are absolutely first rate. I took my pup out duck hunting last fall and he was retrieving ducks at 10 months old. I will also say that my pup is one heck of a nice looking fellow. I will definitely buy my next pup from Lincoln Creek Labs. Thanks again Lincoln Creek Labs for everything.

My son got a lab pup last spring and it is 9 months old. Last week we took it to Kansas for opening weekend of pheasant season. My son was has never trained a retriever before and was not very diligent in working with his new pup so my expectations were not very high. This pup was awesome. He displayed so much naturale talent it was evident that only outstanding breeding could bring out such a great dog. After only a week on wild birds if this dog never got any better he would still be and incredible bird dog. Hunting, flushing and retrieving with natural desire and ability. Absolutely pleased with his performance.
Thank you so much.
