Sullivan is almost 1 and I thought I would just add my thoughts on Jim and Kathy and Greenbriar Plantation. We had never owned a lab before but after talking with and meeting Jim and Kathy we had no doubts. Their knowledge of the breed and their dogs was unbelievable. The entire process was wonderful. Lots of updates and pictures as the puppies grew. Sullivan has turned out to be the best dog we have ever had. I know others here have said it but it's true; every time we take him anywhere, people tell us how beautiful he is. You cannot pick a better breeder if you are looking for a quality lab.

There are not enough good things to say about Greenbriar Kennels - if you are looking for a healthy, eager, smart, well behaved, affectionate and loving Lab companion you better get down to Brunson, SC and grab one of Jim and Kathy's pups - that is where I send my friends when they are looking for a Labrador Retriever.
To begin with, Jim and Kathy run a first class operation with a single minded goal of producing the finest Labrador Retrievers on the market - in my humble estimation they have succeeded in just that. Their knowledge of the breed standards, temperament, and overall physical and mental health-quality of their dogs is top notch; enabling them the ability to produce an overall, well-rounded family companion and excellent hunting dog.
I ran across Greenbriar Kennels while searching for a reputable breeder of Labradors for my son's first dog. (I was, at that time, the owner of 2 labs and was not in the market for another one). We were hoping to find a breeder in the Southeast since we currently live in the Charlotte area. I have raised and trained 6 labs (5 English, 1 American, yellow and black), as well as bred and sold liters practically my entire life - for both family companionship and hunting. My son was particularly interested in finding a water dog since I had introduced him to waterfowl hunting and he was not the greatest or best equipped for retrieving, especially on extremely cold mornings.
As you can tell by the online pictures, Jim and Kathy have perfected the standard look for an English lab - block head, otter tail, etc. I have yet to see a Greenbriar lab that is not "show quality" in appearance. I also believe that overall health and quality of appearance go hand in hand, especially with the Labrador breed.
After visiting Greenbriar with my son and experiencing the way in which Jim and Kathy run their operation, the time and care put into the breeding and raising each liter and of course the quality and pedigree of their breeding stock, I immediately put down a "preferred" deposit on a black pup - of course, my son did the same. I had a little convincing to do with my wife since we already owned 2 labs and a small lap dog as well as being the parents of 7 children.
Jump forward to today - our labs are almost 10 months old and almost fully grown. Every person we come across ask us where we got our dogs, commenting on how beautiful and perfect they look, including our vet. They also comment on how well behaved they are, especially for puppies. These dog's health, temperament, train-ability, obedience, and excellent house manners are the best I've ever come across. In fact, due to Jim and Kathy's attentiveness to each liter, our dogs came home practically house broken and I can honestly say that we did not and have not had one single "accident" in our house. All dogs are kennel trained and know where to do their business prior to arriving in their new home - all you have to do is follow Jim and Kathy's instructions for home training.
I have trained many labs for both hunting and home companionship (my dog serves in both capacities) and I can truly say that Jim and Kathy have produced the best of both worlds. These dogs have surpassed all expectations in both the field and the home. I have always believed that "smarts" and train-ability comes from diligent selection of the breeding stock - Jim and Kathy have just about perfected this at their kennel. What you will get from Greenbriar Kennels is a smart, eager, trainable, show-quality hunting and home companion if you choose Greenbriar Kennels - I will only go one place for my Labrador Retriever and I continue to recommend them to all my lab friends - my dog is the perfect, lovable companion and the best advertisement for Greenbriar Plantation Kennels.

Our Veterinarian says, "this is what a labrador retriever is supposed to look like." There is no better compliment for Greenbriar Plantation's breeding program. If your curious about labs or familiar with them and looking for one, make the call and visit Jim and Kathy. This is a full service kennel. Crate training, grooming, dominance training. Jim will teach you how to make your puppy a well behaved member of the family.

It was a little over two years ago I traveled to Greenbriar Plantation to meet with Jim and Kathy about most likely my last best friend. Wow what an experience. After about thirty minutes talking to Jim and asking and answering questions from each other I was sold. This is where my last pup was coming from. Being over sixty I wanted a buddy to finish out my life with. This is a class act for breeder. Now two years later with some extra help from Jim my boy "Whiskey" is quite a best friend.
I recommended a young man that works with me to look and he also bought a pup from Greenbriar. He too is so proud of the quality of dog he got.
If you are interested in a quality dog and breeder go see Jim and Kathy.

What a great experience!! Jim and Kathy are truly amazing people and I couldn't have asked for more. At greenbriar you can expect a personal experience. When I decided it was time for me to add a dog to my life I looked no further when I found greenbriar. The quality of dogs is unbeatable. From the time the pups were born to time I brought "Axel" home they made me feel like a part of their family. Even now 2 weeks later if I have a question about training or just want to give them an update Jim always answers the phone and is more than willing to give me advice. Thank y'all again for everything. I highly recommend greenbriar plantation.

★★★★★ Begin at the beginning. Last fall my wife and I decided to purchase a Labrador puppy for our grandchildren to grow up with. I have had and trained several of my own in the past, so I know the breed well. After calling, looking, and visiting several breeders we found Greenbriar. We looked no further. One visit and we were convinced of the quality, caring, honesty, and genuinely friendly atmosphere. It was clean, cared for, and professional. Jim Burris asked the right questions, then after meeting our grandchildren and daughter-in-law, showed us his recommendation for the bloodline of the puppy to be. We left a deposit, then paid in full shortly thereafter. The puppies arrived, but when it became time to pick her up, life unfortunately threw the family a curve and there was no way to insure the dog would receive the love and attention it deserved. We discussed this with Jim and not only did he offer his genuine care, he also promptly returned the entire amount we paid for the puppy. That shows honesty and integrity not often found in any business these days. If, in the future we feel we can finally purchase a puppy, there will be nobody considered other than Jim Burris at Greenbriar. I just wish there were more stars to choose from.

As I received the millionth compliment about our dog Jameson,I thought it was about time I commend Jim and Greenbriar Plantation for the amazing experience we've had with Jameson. Aside from being a beautiful yellow lab with that big block head that I love, he has the most wonderful temperament. At 7 months old, he is fully house broken and interacts so well with other dogs and people.He is already swimming and knows several commands! When we picked our puppy up, Jim spent over an hour with us one on one showing us training techniques, feeding tips, general health information, and much more. As first time puppy owners we were really nervous about becoming new parents and Jim put us at ease! Looking back his "puppy condo" model has been a lifesaver. Jameson has been such a gift and we want to thank Greenbriar for breeding such wonderful dogs and running such an amazing operation. Any one would be lucky to have one of their dogs as a companion!

Thanks again! Anneliese Peter & Jameson

I started looking for a lab pup in 2013 after having to put my chocolate down 6 years earlier. Through word of mouth and the internet, I found Greenbriar Plantation. What a wonderful experience it has been! Jim and Kathy are fabulous people and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to Labradors. After visiting the kennels and seeing the quality of their breeding stock and cleanliness of the entire place, I knew that I had found the right breeder. Once my litter was whelped, I made several trips up to see how the pups progressed. Much love, alot of "hands on" and a great environment made it clear that any pup was going to be a quality well adjusted dog. I picked up Gus (a yellow male) in late January and, because of Jim's training methods starting from day one, had him housebroken within a week and a half. His natural desire to retrieve became evident shortly thereafter. Don't get me wrong, Gus is full of "puppy" and constant supervision, attention and training are required. But, having owned lab pups before, there is clearly a difference in his willingnes to please and "do his job"! Jim and Kathy are always just a phone call or e-mail away with tips to refine his behavior. I took him back to Jim at 3 months to see how he reacted to gunfire and he was solid as a rock (at 3 months!). I look forward to spending more time at Greenbriar honing Gus's skills and visiting Jim and Kathy. Thank you for my new best friend! Anyone looking for a Labrador should consider looking into Greenbriar Plantation, you won't be disappointed.

We lost our 15 year old Labrador in November and began a search for a new partner a short time later. We visited several kennels in South Carolina and Georgia when we found Jim and Kathy. We were immediately impressed with their facilities and with their obvious love of all things Labs. Jim interviewed us as we were interviewing him. It is clear that he wants the best homes for his retrievers. We put a deposit for a new Lab the same day and picked up our boy on March 14th. Couldn't be happier with our new family member. Jim has answered several questions we've had and we highly recommend this facility if you are looking for a quality Labrador breeder.

I got Daisy from Jim in September, and I couldn't be happier. From the start, Jim was great to deal with, and it was clear that he really cares about the dogs. Within 5 days of bringing Daisy home, she was pretty much housebroken and would sit on command. Jim does a great job of preparing the pup and the owner for the first few weeks together. When I get another lab, it'll definitely be from Jim.
