Bailiwick Retrievers - Georgia Labrador Retriever Breeders
About Bailiwick Retrievers
Our Kennel is located on our 15 acre farm in Ranger, Georgia. Nestled in the Salacoa Valley between Cartersville, Georgia and Chattanooga Tenn. We breed Labrador Retrievers.
Our Commitment as a Breeder is to breed with working dogs out of the top Labrador field trial and hunt test bloodlines. Our puppies carry the intelligence, trainability and instincts to go as far as you would like in hunting retrievers, resulting in top hunting companions and first class family members.
All puppies are socialized from the first day they are born, introduced to birds at 5 weeks and start early training as sit...here...and stay.
Labs are naturally born to hunt and make wonderful companion dogs with a natural family oriented temperament.

In February of 2010 I tragically lost my four year old female lab. As hard as it was, I knew that I had to move on and find another dog. The problem was that I could not even imagine finding a dog that would have the looks and abilities of the one I lost. As an amateur trainer, I know that some dogs have what it takes to run in finished level hunt tests and others never will. My family has been breeding Labs for five generations and I have never owned a dog outside of that bloodline. My military deployment schedule prevented me from waiting for another family breed. After researching breeders from Texas to Virginia I settled on the Kennels at Bailiwick. I found that many breeders treated me like a number and did not really care about my situation. Mrs. Barbara Crouch at Bailiwick was honest, sincere, and very helpful. She gave me contact info so that I could speak with owners of pups from Bailiwick's previous litters. Bailiwick kennels breeds one litter at a time and gives complete attention to every pup. From day one the experience was very personal. Mrs. Barbara sent me email updates and photos on the puppy's progress every few days. I could not have asked for a better experience. My puppy is excellent. Everything Mrs. Barbara and other Bailiwick puppy owners told me was spot on. When my puppy arrived at 7 weeks (my dad actually picked her up, it was a 700 mile drive for me), she had already been introduced to birds, basic commands, and the crate. She is now three months old and is almost completely obedience trained. She is extremely smart and picks up new commands every day. Her natural abilities are exceptional. She is athletic, coordinated, and swims like a fish. In addition to her abilities, she is a very good looking dog as well. Bottom line is that I am extremely pleased with everything about The Kennels at Bailiwick. I would be more than happy to share my story with anyone interested in a Bailiwick puppy.

When we began looking for a puppy, we knew we wanted her to have a strong bloodwine and come from a reputable breeder. We did a lot of research and finally landed on the Kennels of Bailiwick based on their breeding standards and credentialed dam and sire. We are so happy with our decision and feel our Sweet Reese Lee is truly a great-looking dog! Although we are proud parents and are bias, I cannot tell you how many compliments we have received about Reese's stature, beautiful face, and demeanor. She is very affectinate and has demonstrated her ability to be a fabulous hunter time and time again. Loud noises, not a problem, gun shy, not this pup: curious, you betcha! And, let's not forget, SMART! Crate training was no problem with Reese and she had the basic obedience commands down in weeks. On top of that, her keen sense of smell and alertness is unmatched. She is high energy, super playful, and brings so much joy to our lives! We are very grateful to Barbara and Tyler for the love and safekeeping of Reese after she was born and could not have asked for a greater first puppy buying experience! Thanks again!
