Out and Back Kennel - Missouri Labrador Retriever Breeders
About Out and Back Kennel
Welcome to the home of Out and Back Retrievers. We are located in West Plains, Missouri, the Heart of the Ozark Mountains of Howell County. Out and Back Kennel is a professionally owned and operated business. ABOUT US My love for dogs goes back to my childhood as I was raised on a row crop farm in northeast Arkansas. Those were some hard ole times, but the one anchor in my life was my dog. I clenched to him like metal to a magnet. In my early adulthood, I moved to the rolling hills of Southern Missouri. Bobwhite quail was plentiful. It was a perfect marriage; my passion for hunting and my love for dogs. It seemed everybody had a bird dog. I raised and trained bird dogs for years. Then came the sharp decline in our quail population. The demand for bird dogs dropped drastically. I tried field trials and qualified a dog for the Nationals but field trials just wasn't my cup of tea. I always assumed I would train a few dogs in my retirement years. Having always admired a well-trained duck dog, I took on the challenge a few years ago to raise and train Labrador Retrievers. I absolutely love these dogs. They are the center of my life. As we only raise 2 litters per year. We are able to give each puppy much love, affection, and socialization. Making them much easier to train as young adults. Our sales come primarily from referrals from satisfied customers. We would be happy to give phone #'s of people that have purchased our puppies Call Jim for puppies that are available, pricing and pedigrees.
