We were looking for a black lab after loosing ours to stomach cancer after having her 16 years. From the first time I contacted them Bryan he was very friendly. We went to see the pups at 3 weeks old. They have a lot of acreage with ponds and room to run. We were very pleased with how clean and well maintained the dogs area was. We returned 5 weeks later to pick up our sweet Mollie Mae. She is so smart and learns quickly. Within a week she was sitting, crate trained, and going to the door when she needed to use the restroom. She is a companion dog but we have several acres for her to run and play. Confederate Labs has a very strong obedient blood line and we are beyond pleased with our sweet girl.

We picked up our female lab Missi Lou when she was 11 weeks old . We drove from Brazoria, Texas to get her and it was worth every mile. She was crate trained, was retrieving and has the best personality. She is a companion dog and has learned all of her commands very easily. We have had 4 labs over the years and we have personally trained each one. All of them have been very smart, but Missi is the smartest one we have ever had. We never use anything but positive reinforcement, never a shock collar. She is now 5 month old and weighs 45 pounds. We live on a river with open fields. She readily returns with calling her name and clapping one time. She plays with two other dogs and is very well socialized. She is gentle, does not jump on people, even when very excited. She loves the water and retrieves whatever we toss in the river. She is just about perfect. Thank you

Top notch operation all around. Big, nice farm with professionally built kennels. Both the mom and dad were in the kennels beside her (our puppy). Mr. Franks was as acommadating and professional as can be.
We decided to crate train our puppy and read all about it beforehand. We had been told the first week or so would be tough, as the puppy would cry constantly. Thanks to Mr. Franks she was basically already crate trained and she literally hasnt cried once yet
She has a great temperament and seems to be a extremely smart. She learned to sit and how to go outside, to her bed, and to her crate in one day
So far we couldn't be more thrilled!

I purchased a black male lab from Mr. Franks in January of 2017. Mr. Franks answered any questions I had and has a top-notch kennel with superior dogs and care. He gave me weekly updates from the time I contacted him before the liter was even born up until the week we picked him up. OUTSTANDING fits the mold with this breeder. We absolutely could not be happier with our pup and Mr. Franks has contacted us several times to ask us how things are going. At only 5 months our pup is friendly(with people and other dogs), and SO very smart! He is very eager to please his family and loves to learn! He has the best personality and temperament I have ever seen in a dog. Along side my 3 year old Texas Heeler, he has been a blessing to our family. Shall we look into getting another Lab, Bryan Franks will be the first person we contact.

We found Confederate Labs through a search on Gundogbreeders. Bryan is a very accommodating breeder and easy to dela with. We exchanged texts prior to him having a littler and came to tour his kennel. We were impressed with the facility. It was designed and not simply built. All of the dogs seemed alert, healthy, and happy.
We have had our black female since January and are more than satisfied with the quality of dog we purchased. She learns quickly and is affectionate. We got her as a pet, but also as a companion for open water swimming, running, and kayaking. We love this dog and will definitely get back in touch with Bryan for future dogs.

I purchased my lab from Bryan last year and I am extremely satisfied with him. He has a top notch set-up and is extremely knowledgable in the breeding and handling of the labs he raises. All pups are up to date on their shots and when you pick them up and you are even given a folder with what and how to care for your new addition. My lab has been an asset to me as I guide duck hunting in West Tennessee and he has saved me several trips out of my blind. Drove 4 hours to get my pup and would highly recommend Confederate Kennels for your next lab. These dogs are smart and have a very good and long running bloodline. You won't be disappointed.

MY FAMILY PURCHASED A FEMALE FROM MR FRANKS IN JULY OF 2016. WE COULD NOT BE MORE PLEASE WITH MR FRANKS OR THE PUPPY. BOTH HAVE EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS. MR FRANKS TOOK THE TIME TO ANSWER ALL MY QUESTION'S BOTH BEFORE THE PURCHASE AND AFTER. WE PLACE A DEPOSIT ON THE PUPPY LONG BEFORE THE PUPPIES WERE BORN. MR. FRANKS KEPT US UP TO DATE ON "RUBY'S" CONDITION THOUGHOUT THE PREGNANCY. THEN ONCE THE PUPPIES WERE BORN WE RECIEVED WEEKLY UPDATES, PICS AND VIDEOS. HE IS VERY DEDICATED TO HIS DOGS AND IT WON'T TAKE YOU LONG TO TELL IT. HE IS VERY THOROUGH AND ORGANIZED. HIS KENNELS WERE CLEAN AND WELL KEPT.
AS FOR THE PUPPY. "GEORGIA" IS VERY HEALTHY, QUICK LEARNER WITH LOTS OF DRIVE AND A GOOD TEMPERAMENT. SHE IS THE PERFECT FIT FOR WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR. A HARD HUNTING SPOILED FAMILY MEMBER. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT FOR HER.

We purchased our Lab from Bryan Franks @ Confederate Labs in July 2016. From the first phone call in May until we pick him up it was a really good experience. Bryan was really a lot of help pointing out the best way to handle the entire purchase process. I have a nephew that is a breeder in Alabama and he too said Bryan is a good breeder as well as a stickler for all of the details. I took him with me to make sure I was in good hands. I sure was in good hands from start to finish. He had all the paperwork ready, bloodline info, took us through to look over the parents on site, shots, looked over all of the pups, vet visits, exactly what the vet did and the dates services were completed and his report. He spent a lot of time with us and we went through his entire kennel set up. It's really nice and professional. I would recommend Bryan Franks @ Confederate Labs 100% to anyone especially the first time buyers that need the extra time and special attention to detail that he provides. Bryan has also contacted us atleast 5 times since we picked up our Lab to check on him and make sure we were happy. Bryan is a 5 Best rated in our book.
