We provide superior Professional Gun Dog Training for your retriever. Whether you are looking for a gun dog trainer to develop your dog into an extraordinary waterfowl retreiver or a great upland dog, 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.

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. We strive to produce a dog with drive, a cooperative attitude, good looks and conformation, strength, and brains. In other words, we want to produce dogs that have it all! We love to get these pups back for training due to their strong instincts, great noses, and high level of intelligence. Simply put, they are a pleasure to train! The disposition of one of these dogs will make it as fine a family dog as it is a hunting dog, they have a strong desire to please. Many of our dogs that we breed are from pointing labrador bloodlines and either point themselves, or throw pointing lab pups. To see the puppies we have available for sale, click on Litters.
In the market for a Trained Retriever? We occasionally have labs for sale that have been through our gun dog training programs. These are dogs we have usually raised ourselves and worked with since they were weaned. 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 their obedience training and will have been introduced to birds, the gun, and water (season permitting). Started dogs will then go on to be force-fetched and collar-conditioned. They will have had a lot of opportunities to see and retrieve marks on land and water, and flush and retrieve many birds in the upland field. Finished dogs will then go on to learn how to be handled to blind retrieves and to retrieve multiple marks. 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 for sale click on Started Dogs or Finished Dogs.
