Welcome to Twin Lakes Labrador Retrievers
Our litters of Chocolate Labradors are some of the very finest in the country.

In our humble opinion.

(In terms of genetic health, pedigree, temperament, ease of training, natural ability, desire to please, appearance and sociability, etc.)

With very strong Retrieving and Pointing lineage these pups have natural waterfowl and upland game pointing capabilities just waiting for you to fully develop and train.

Please contact us asap to secure your pick.

Delivery available to Kansas and Colorado.

Pups are available for pickup now.

We are hobby breeders in Columbia Missouri who have been raising great pups for over three decades.  

We are a 'micro-kennel' producing only one litter per year.

We are dedicated to improving the breed, and strive to produce only the very finest Chocolate Labradors available anywhere.

We are currently accepting adoption applications for our 2019 litter of 

AKC Registered Chocolate Labrador Retriever pups.

The sire, Griz, is a retriever of waterfowl *and* is a natural Pointer of upland game fowl - also known as a 'Pointing Lab', and is a Four Time Grand Master, or "4XGMPR", see also http://pointing-lab.com/4xgmpr-mpr-cpr-grizzly-sh-griz/ 
 or visit their home page at pointing-lab.com  . 

Griz was featured in the February 2018 issue of CoveyRise Magazine, in their article about Pointing-Labradors, available at Barnes and Noble.

Shadow is the granddaughter of all time field champ "Barracuda Blue" one of the most highly regarded Chocolate Labrador lineages in the United States or World.

(See also silvercreekkennel.com  or search on "Barracuda Blue" for more information about his lineage and history).

Shadow has OFA certification of hip health and is EIC clear (does not carry the gene associated with Exercise Induced Collapse).  

Shadow's April of 2018 litter with Griz is her third litter and her second with Griz.

Since both Griz and Shadow are certified EIC Clear, then all of their pups in this litter will also be EIC 'clear' (non-carrying).

Pups are AKC register-able, come with a health guarantee, have their dew-claws clipped, have been Vet-checked, micro-chipped, and have had their first shots, worming, etc.
