We provide complete Professional Gun Dog Training for your retriever.  Whether you want your dog to become a superior 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 interested in Pointing Labrador Puppies?  Looking for a labrador retriever puppy bred for drive and companionship?  We offer a few select breedings a year 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 pups.  We love to get these pups back for training due to their strong instincts, great noses, and intelligence.  Simply put, they are really 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 are planning a Train x Jessie breeding later this spring, more information coming soon on our Litters 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.  Started pups will have gone through our Puppy Program.  Started dogs will have been force-fetched and gone through the rest of our Started Program.  Finished dogs will have gone through our Finished Program and learned to handle on blind retrieves and retrieve multiple marks.  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 Started Dogs .
