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


Whether you are looking for 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 variety 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, you can click on Retriever Training.  We are now taking deposits for  the 2018 training season, give us a call to reserve a training slot for your dog today!

Are you looking for a Labrador Retriever puppy bred for both drive and companionship?  Interested in Pointing Labrador Puppies?   We offer carefully selected breedings that will produce black, chocolate, and yellow Labrador pups.  Some of our dogs 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, trainability, and intelligence.  Simply put, they are a pleasure to train.  The disposition of these dogs will make them as fine a family dog as they will be a hunting companion.  We have two Train x Grace puppies ready for new homes!  You can find more information about these pups, and learn more about our Current Litters and our Upcoming Breedings, on our Puppies pages.   

In the market for a Trained Retriever?  We occasionally offer 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!  We currently have two Started Dogs for sale, one male and one female.  To learn more about these dogs click on Trained Dogs .
