All this with just 4 dogs? WOW…and we are just get­ting started!

To that end, over the past 30 months we have added 4 more poten­tial cham­pi­ons to our devel­op­ing ken­nel in the likes of Blast, Buddy & Jazz. See details on each under the “Our dogs” page.

Blast & Buddy come from the two best choco­late blood lines in the coun­try. Their early accom­plish­ments (col­lec­tively pass­ing 17 of 18 Hunt Test) will cer­tainly lead to some great off-spring. Wait until you see their pedi­grees!
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.
