We breed the best of Field Trial bloodlines, selecting particularly for a hunting dog that has natural ability coupled with excellent temperament and disposition. Our hunting dogs have proven themselves in Retriever Field Trials for over 30 years, and more important, are hunted under natural conditions, which, after all, is what it’s all about. Many of today’s FT Labs are exceptional in what they do. Not all of them, and in fact probably the majority of them, are never really hunted under the gun. Nowadays there are also many Labradors who don’t really look like Labs, and also many who are too hyper to make a good combination family dog and gun dog. If you want a Labrador Retriever that can do it all, and looks good doing it, give us a call!
The Trieven and Sungold (our golden retrievers) names are well known in retriever circles, and are behind many of today’s top retrievers, both Lab and Golden. You will see the TRIEVEN name in many of today’s Pointing Labs, as we have had Labs that point consistently since 1971. Our goal is to have a Lab that is first an outstanding retriever on land and water, is highly trainable, pleasant to live with, and if they point naturally, that’s the frosting on the cake!

“Just need to let you know the Twist x Sarah male I got from you is something else! I hunt with guys who have shorthairs. This Lab can go through a field behind them, find birds they miss, and point and hold birds ten times as well as the shorthairs do, plus he is a fantastic retriever. I never had to teach him to “whoa” to point, it is all totally natural. Thanks for such a spectacular dog!”
“Blue is my first Lab. I have always had shorthairs before. This pup is the most natural retriever I have ever seen. She has no hesitation in the water, even in the coldest weather. Last week we hunted pheasant and chukar, and she pointed naturally several times! She is a real treat to have around the house and work with! Thanks!”
“Jay, the pup that I bought from you from the breeding of Blue Earth’s Titanic and Trieven MSConnection, born 2/24/2004, took 3rd place in the Derby stake at WNYRC this weekend. Hawser is an excellent marker, is very intelligent, and is hard as nails. He is also a handful to handle because he has super intensity and desire, so he loves the game and wants it always to be his turn. I am extremely happy with him, and I think he will have an excellent Field Trial career if all goes as it is now. I will keep you posted on his progress as I promised.”
“The little female pup you sent is doing great. I had her out to a hunt club last weekend and she really looked great. She pointed and retrieved all of our birds. One of the members offered me $5,000 for her right there. Of course, she isn’t for sale…”
“Thought you would like to know how one of your pups is doing. He is an excellent duck dog, a good marker, easy to train, and excels on tracking cripples. He has retrieved 50-60 ducks a year… His favorite job is pheasant hunting. He is steady on point naturally. His nose is definitely superior to other Labs’. He is also great with the kids, dogs, and family cat. Thanks!”
“I already have a Golden from a Mazy and Timber litter, and she is about to turn a year old. She is the smartest dog I have ever had, and she is always ready to hunt! I have friends wanting information about your awesome Goldens.” – Brian M. (Arizona)
“Hope all is well in WY…just a quick note to keep you posted on “Takoda”. Last season at the ripe age of six months he retrieved the first of over 40 ducks, 2 geese, and about 15 pheasants. He is exactly what I was looking for in a true hunting golden! He is by far the quickest study I have ever trained. He has tremendous drive, a lightning fast start and drives right to the mark. He trailed cripples like a seasoned retriever. His nose has brought many a compliment!”
“ I wanted to let you know how the golden we got from you is doing. He is a hard runner and an excellent marker. His water entry is spectacular. I entered four Derbies and he finished three, with a 3rd, a 4th and a reserve JAM. He broke in the only non-finish. I truly feel he has the potential to be a FC!”
“…I’ve got to tell you though that this dog Buck I got from you has turned into quite the bird dog. He’s been retrieving well since seven months of age for dove, duck, goose, quail and pheasant. I have had him on pheasants three times in the last three weekends alone, including two doubles, all over one shooter, me. He has never lost a bird, is well disciplined to the point of sitting with the bird on every retrieve and busting for the next flush. I think he’s the most incredible dog ever….more than I bargained for!”
“Hi! Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how happy we are with our new pup from the Jesse x Woody cross. Rarely have I seen a retriever, let alone a puppy, with so much retrieving drive. Trainers frequently tell you to stop playing fetch before the pup gets tired, but I don’t think this pup is capable of those emotions. Her water instincts are incredible!”
