Scooter and Jazz pups

Indeed, we have been very blessed to say the least with some of the healthiest, intelligent pointing labs we could find. We have a support team of multiple awesome professional trainers / great friends, which share our unquenchable passion to help Black Ice Retrievers produce the most intelligent decorated pointing Labradors in the country.

We take that responsibility, investment and the extensive research that goes along with that goal, extremely serious. Sometimes we have waited close to three years across multiple repeat breedings just to get the exact one pick of the litter we desired. Such was the case in our selection of our developing Chocolate male named Mud Bud – “Buddy.”

“Black Ice’s Rainmakers Come on Baby Light My Fire” born 06/7/13

I am originally from the “Show me state,” so seeing is believing. I grew up hunting ducks off of the Missouri & Mississippi Rivers in ST. Charles, Mo. where if your lab could not handle multiple marks and blinds, you and your dog were not invited back. We have some of the highest standards in the industry. While other lab kennels breed great grand children, grand children, & daughters of well accomplished dogs, we only have litters from dogs that are well accomplished themselves.
We prove that your puppy’s immediate parents are highly intelligent are we just don’t breed them like the majority of breeders do. Why do breeders promote puppies from unproven parents? Primarily two reasons; first they don’t promote the parent’s intelligence because it simply might not be smart enough to do advanced work and or the testing of the dog takes time, effort & investment.
BUYERS BEWARE! There are only two types of lab breeders; those that breed for quantity AND THOSE THAT BREED FOR QUALITY. You need to decide for yourself what type of buyer you are and then do your research.
