We raise good, pedigree and healthy AKC registered hunting dogs as a hobby. Our females and studs are clear of EIC and CNM. We do not breed carriers of either trait. Hips are OFA good or excellent. Eyes CERT. We DNA test for the dilute gene that produce silver labs. All of our chocolate females and studs are clear of that dilute gene. We are doing our part to keep the Labrador Retriever breed healthy and pure. Mike and Gloria are retired and always available to answer any questions you may have. Although you may come and check out our place, no visiting puppies is allowed until they are old enough not to contact diseases. Visiting puppies is reserved only for those who have committed to purchasing a puppy by placing a prior deposit. Most of our puppy placements into new homes are by referrals from our satisfied puppy owners. We offer full AKC registration to owners of our puppies. 26 month hip guarantee. A bag of puppy food is sent home with your new puppy. Puppies are vet checked, dewclaws are removed by a vet, all vaccines up to date, and puppies socialized and exposed to noise before going to their forever homes.

After spending time afield with a good friends 1.5 year old puppy who was a phenomenal hunter already, I inquired where he had got her. That’s when we were turned onto Eboni Labrador Retrievers. Eboni Labrador Retrievers provided us with all of the championship pedigree you could ever ask for. I believe it’s because of these bloodlines that these dogs are so very easy to train from the start. The kennel is at their residence and is a very clean and accommodating place. We could not have been happier with our decision to go with Eboni Labrador Retrievers. We now have a beautiful 9 month old yellow lab who is a wonderful family dog and well on her way to becoming a phenomenal hunter!

Mike and Gloria, I just wanted to post again to let you know how great Bella is. We took her grouse and pheasant hunting this fall and as small as she is, 48 pounds, he bounded through the weeds like a jack rabbit picked up and everything perfectly and is just great! Just wanted to say thanks again for a great dog ! Rick

I got my dog Traxx from Mike and Gloria this past June. Their place is beautiful and clean and kept up very nice. Traxx and the other dogs were very comfortable around people because of the introduction that they received from Mike and Gloria. They are two of the nicest people I have gotten to know. They are honest and really walk you through getting a puppy. Traxx is my first puppy. I still stay in touch with them and send them pictures of Traxx who is now 8 months old. I will definitely get another dog from Eboni labs.

We have 2 dogs from Eboni Labs. Cash a 2 1/2 year Black male and Maggie a 8 month old Yellow female. Both dogs are very intelligent with good noses and a lot of drive. We have been using Cash for waterfowl, he is steady and is a good retriever. We can't wait to get Maggie in the field. Mike and Gloria are passionate about raising quality Lab puppies and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a well bred Lab.

I looked at many breeders in MN and found a perfect match in Mike and Gloria’s Ebony Labs. The pedigrees offered were strong for hunting and trial dogs. Plus, the temperament of their dogs was perfect for a family pet. This is exactly what we were looking for and exactly what we got in our yellow male. Our dog was very easy to train and enjoys learning everyday. He has been trained to hunt/retrieve upland, waterfowl and deer antler sheds. During the off season he trains to be a therapy dog and master family pet. We are thrilled with the breeding at Ebony Labs!!

First off, Mike and Gloria are great to work with and all-around great people! We picked up a female black lab, Bella, who is now 8 months old back in April. The entire process was very smooth. We couldn't be happier with our experience and the dog is a heaven-send! She was house-broken very quickly and easily and we are currently training her to hunt birds. She is a natural--great nose, impressive range, and learns/obeys commands surprisingly well for her age--and she LOVES being in the field giving it all she's got. On top of being very fast and strong for her size, she is about as loveable as they come, and everyone comments on how sweet she is. Overall I would definitely recommend going to Mike and Gloria for your next lab purchase--you will not regret it!

My son Kurt got his beautiful black lab (male) from Eboni Labrador Retrievers. My husband and I first went to visit the all puppies a few weeks prior to Kurt picking out his dog (Puck). Mike and Gloria have a great place, and the female mother Donna May was beautiful. Puck travels the world, but mainly lives in Germany during the year, and in the USA during the summer. He is healthy, sweet, and so smart (and will be 3 years old this spring). We plan to visit Mike and Gloria's place for another pup.

Mike and Gloria were amazing to work with when selecting our puppy from them - Eboni Labrador Retrievers. Their knowledge and advice were invaluable, and we couldn't be happier with our boy. At only four months he is easy to train, quick to learn, eager to please and loves to point! We can't wait to watch him build upon his already incredible natural abilities!

We couldn't be happier with our beautiful black lab from Eboni Labrador Retrievers. Our first time meeting Mike and Gloria we knew we were in good hands. Our boy is one and we haven't had any problems with him. He is sweet, smart, and healthy. We will definitely be back for another! Best dog ever!
