About Bird Dog Labs LLC
We are an AKC Breeder of  Merit and AKC Bred with H.E.A.R.T. Breeder of quality purebred Labrador Retrievers. We are located in Bemidji, Minnesota. Our focus is on producing the best all around Lab puppies for both the home and field. Our dogs come from champion Field Trial and Hunt Test bloodlines and the pedigrees speak for themselves. We do everything we can to ensure that our dogs are healthy and free of hereditary disorders. Our dogs are selected for their natural hunting instincts and proven performance in the field. We also place equal importance on desire to please, intelligence, gentle temperaments, health clearances, overall health, and attractive physical features.  We go above and beyond in trying to ensure that our breeding dogs are structurally and genetically sound. All of our dogs live in our home and are active hunting companions. We focus on quality and not quantity and are extremely selective when it comes to any pairing.  Our puppies receive only the best care and we believe in a personal touch. All of our puppies are born and raised in our home and receive daily individual attention. At a bare minimum our puppies also receive early neurological stimulation and early scent introduction, dew claws removed, first round of vaccinations, wormed, microchipped, are exposed to water (weather permitting), gunfire, crates, birds or bird wings, car rides, outdoor adventures in various environments, obstacle courses to build confidence and are thoroughly socialized with adults, children and other dogs of various ages. We strive to give every puppy the best start possible. We breed quality black, yellow (including fox reds), and chocolate Labradors. MN License #: MN577935

This here website, is where my journey with Bird Dog Labs llc, began. ( We owned 3 Labrador Retrievers, but they were getting on in age, and my husband said we should really start looking around. This time he wanted a chocolate male. I did alot of digging around, and one link led to another, but nothing stood out, then I stumbled upon this site, and i came across a Breeder in Bemidji, MN. Only 2 hours away from me. I followed the links and started reading every thing I could about Gina Glidden and Bird Dog Labs

After seeing the extensive health checks that were done with every single dog she owns, and then learning about the months and months of research she does to find the right stud to match her females personality, and the travelling she has done to make it all happen, I knew she was the one. I told my husband repeatedly..."she's the one, she's the one." She was the breeder I wanted our next dog from.

I looked at a few other sites, but absolutely none compared to what Gina was offering with her puppies. Her health guarantee, is off the charts. Every single dog that she owns, lives in the house as part of the family. And the pups are born and raised right in her bedroom, in fact, they spend the first 4 weeks of their life there, where she can keep a closer eye on them before moving them into one of the other puppy rooms.

The program she runs each puppy through, is extensive, and very detailed, with absolutely no short cuts. They are introduced to as much as can physically be done in 8 weeks, so each pup get the best start possible when they venture off to their new homes.

I am the proud owner of TWO Bird Dog Labs. My first one, is a little black female out of FC Glenhoma's El Chupacabra and Birddog's Sweet Remembrance. (lilly and chupa). My second dog is a chocolate male out of FC Wbf's Man On The Stand QA2 and Birddog's Goodtime Magnet MH26 (maggie / maestro)

I like to run hunt tests with my dogs, and hadn't been on a bucket in 7 years. These two dogs have given me very good reason to get back in the game.
I could not be happier with either of them, and can't wait to continue with our adventures. I can do that because I have two really great dogs. And I have them, because Gina is outstanding at what she does. And at present, i am on a much anticipated wait list for my THIRD Bird Dog Lab.

I have since become very good friends with Gina. I have had the honor of witnessing the love and attention she gives to each of her dogs. She is the real deal.

I own a black lab pup from the first litter that Gina's dog, Grace, had. Holli is now almost 3 years and an exceptional family pet. She is smart, a quick learner, beautiful, and very devoted.

As a dog breeder, Gina is devoted to raising top quality pups through all the research of pedigree and the tests needed to provide health clearances. Gina also raises the pups in her home and will give each pup their individual attention needed.

If you choose to get a pup from Gina, you will find she is very easy to work with, honest and truly loves raising her labs.
