I got a yellow lab from Denise and Rob back in 2010. He flew in and I picked him up at the airport . I picked him from a picture and he has been my soul and heart dog ever since. The easiest dog to live with and his temperment is all I ever dreamed of. He is a Search and Rescue dog who has brought closure to many families. We also excel in agility. He also has had some acting rolls in Mare of Eastown and Only Murders in the Building.. Most of all he is a cuddle bug and loves me beyond words. I would highly recommend these breeders. Thank you Denise and Rob for this exceptional Lab

I got a two year old male black lab from Captains 5 years ago. His name was Vic but we call him KEEPER. I was clear that at 66 I did not believe a puppy would be a good match. Vic was recommended as a calm, family centered pup.
Living on the east coast I was naturally concerned about transportation. Although I would have gladly gone to Minnesota to get him.
Captains took care of everything KEEPER is now an active member of a three generational family and my vet comments on his overall health and powerful stature.
I would without reservation recommend Captains for two reasons —the quality of their pups health and disposition —and their commitment to find good matches for their pups.
He rides in my truck at least 3 times a year to Canada Atlantic Salmon fishing (10 hour drive) and is my total companion he never leaves on the river and the guys & gals I fish with love him.
No hesitation to say this is the place to get the Lab Of A Life.

I have a Chocolate Female out of The captains Captain Morgan CD MH and High Voltage magic marker MH, who is ready for Hunt tests now and is one of the most trainable pups I have seen. I would recommend their breedings to any one.
