We provide first class professional gun dog training for your retriever, and world class Labrador Retriever puppies for hunting families.


Whether you want your dog to become an outstanding retriever for hunting waterfowl, or you are looking for a gun dog trainer to develop your dog into a great upland hunter, or both, you'll find excellence in training at Northern Plains Retrievers.  We offer a number of different training programs and we will customize your dog's program to fit the type of hunting that you do.  To see the details of each program click on Retriever Training.

Are you looking for a Labrador Retriever puppy bred for drive and companionship?  Interested in Pointing Labrador Puppies?   We offer carefully selected breedings that will produce black, chocolate, and yellow lab pups.  Many of the dogs we breed are from pointing labrador bloodlines and either point themselves or throw pointing lab puppies.  We love to get these pups back for training due to their strong instincts, great noses, and intelligence.  Simply put, they are a pleasure to train.  The disposition of these dogs makes them as fine a family dog as they will be a hunting companion.  We have two litters due in June.  You can find more information on these litters, and check out our Upcoming Breedings, on our Puppies page.   

In the market for a Trained Retriever?  We occasionally have labs for sale that have been through one of our gun dog training programs.  Depending on their age and the level of training they have achieved, we will sell them as Started Pups, Started Dogs, or Finished Dogs.  No matter what level you choose, once you have hunted with a trained retriever, you'll never want to hunt with anything else!  To see the trained retrievers we have available click on Trained Dogs .
