Our chocolate Labrador retriever breeding program produces exceptionally high quality retrievers from field-competition genetic lines. Brown Dog Retrievers is the home to our late and great stud, Merganser’s Classic Rip-N-Tear MNH, a son of NFC AFC Storm’s Riptide Star, the only chocolate Labrador retriever in history to win a National Open Field Trial Championship. Rip has sired numerous puppies that have become great field competitors, hunting dogs, and family pets.

Our Program:

We are dedicated to providing quality chocolate Labrador retrievers for hunting, field competition, and family companions. All of our dogs are hunted extensively, trained for obedience and field competition, and campaigned in the AKC Hunting Test program. Our Labs live in our home and are true family companions and well socialized with people and children.

Our breeding program combines outstanding Field Trial Champion and Hunting Retriever titled parents to produce intelligent, athletic retrievers that are tractable, trainable, good looking, and eager to please. Our small facility and breeding program provides a very close and personal touch when raising our puppies for their new owners. We guarantee, in writing, that our puppies are free of hip and elbow dysplasia, hereditary eye disorders, and other congenital defects. Our puppies come with their dew claws removed and first worming and vaccinations.

We work closely with our clients to match our puppies with their needs and desires. All of our retriever puppies are well socialized with people, adults and children, other dogs, and introduced to birds, gunfire and other loud noises. We spend a lot of time socializing and caring for our puppies to ensure you have a healthy, stable, intelligent, and happy puppy entering your home. Socialization is a critical step in raising puppies: most retriever breeders say they do it…we guarantee it!

So whether you're considering a field competitor, hunting dog, a family pet, or any of the numerous possibilities a chocolate Labrador retriever has to offer, we appreciate you considering a Brown Dog!
