Reviews and Appreciation

  • Hello Alaska Labradors,
    I felt compelled to reach out to you today, after all these years, to say "thank you" for introducing us the most cherished member of our family.

    We lost our dear friend Hobbes a couple of week ago to cancer. He will forever be remembered as the dearest friend we could ever ask for, as he was the most gentle, loving, loyal and trustworthy companion. Everyone loved him, he did not have a single enemy in the world...cats, dogs, children...he instantly connected will all of them. He went everywhere with us; camping, hiking, boating and holiday gatherings like any other member of the family.

    My now husband, and I brought Hobbes home in the spring of 2004 when we were living in Anchorage. In summer of 2005 we moved home to Colorado, where we still live. We talk about Alaska Labradors, and our experience with you every chance we get and would recommend you to anyone. We hope you are still producing the amazing animals you were when we were there, in the loving environment that we visited.

    I have attached a couple of favorite photos of our beloved Hobbes (named for Calvin and Hobbes).

    Attached are some photos of Ollie! He has been a great dog!

    I’ll be getting a female from you in about 2 years.

    Hi Ron and jonnie,
    This is Royann the hygienist from ANMC. I thought you might like a couple pictures of our pup - we picked her up in June so she was your April 2010 litter. I think Judy sent one of the two "sisters" skiing a couple of weeks ago. The ones I am attaching show her growing in her favorite chair :) Might be cute ones for your web site. Or just to show the kids and enjoy one of your beautiful pups. We sure do -- thank you so much.

    Hope to see you in the clinic soon.




    Attached is a photo of my late Alaska labrador Mr. California Brown Bear. Are your chocolate puppies all males? What was their date whelped? Are both parents American or English labradors? Both yellow labs? What weight are the parents? What are you asking for the pups? thank you



    Hi Jonnie and Ron,

    Just wanted to let you know that we are head over heels in love with our pup we got from you all. She’s an absolute doll and has fit into our lifestyle beautifully! She allows Alex (our son) to carry her around like a baby doll and has already hiked up the Butte with us. We love her to death already and have told many friends who have also fallen in love to see you all if they are looking to get a Labrador. In a couple years we will probably add a chocolate Labrador brother, so we hope to be in touch again then. Thank you again for breeding such a beautiful addition to our family!

    Natalie, Chris, Alex, Napolean (the cat) and Zoëy

    Dear, Ron & Jonnie Bernier

    Jeremy Torres and I Mary Brewer purchase a yellow lab from you back in 2010 and I just wanted to let you know that she has been doing really well.. our daughter named her Kai-lan.. The day we brought Kai-lan home she was a bit skiddish but she adjusted very well.. she was house trained in 2 days and kenneled only to sleep.. she has become very well mannered as she has grown.. she's lovable and very nice around the kids and loves to play.. she enjoys being outside, in the water, fetching & taking rides in our vehicle.. she was fetching w/in a week of being in her new home.. we have taken her hunting at 12 weeks & she's attempted to get grouse last year but wasn't too interested..

    1st pic is Kai-lan taking treats to sit..
    2nd pic is a random of her 1st week in new home
    3rd pic is a random this spring 2012
    4th pic relaxing in her home..

    I do have more pics and will send by email..

    Our family is interested in buying a female yellow lab puppy. We have purchased a dog from you before- his name is Cooper and he is now almost six years old (photo attached), he is doing great but is ready for a sister. Please contact us with information on available yellow lab litters or when a litter is born.   Looking forward to hearing from you,
    Laird, Julie, Shelby, and Ryan


    Hi, this is Kim and Joe. Teal won us (lol) at Mat-Su Ducks Unlimited. She is smart and acclimated to her new home and on her way to all of her training! We are so impressed and infatuated with this pup.
    Thanks so much.


    Just wanted you to know that Sitka has made a good adjustment here in Fairbanks. She is a perfect addition to our family.  Thanks for your patience and understanding with the long distance coordination before Christmas to make this happen. Looking forward to working with her when I return from Afghanistan.  She is already sitting and staying on command and will retrieve for about 5 minutes (3-4 retrieves) out to about 6-8 feet.

    She is also going out with "Bella" on a regular schedule to take care of their business.  If everything works out for me - I might contact you to be on the lookout for me a black female next year (2013)

     Thanks again


    Our dog just turned three today. I wanted to email you and let you know that he is the best dog we have EVER owned. We got him from you late Feb of 2008 and couldn't be happier. When our friends ask about him, we speak very highly of you. We could not be happier with our decision. We have four kids, the youngest of which is only 16 months old, and he is an absolute angel with all of them, and everyone else he comes into contact with. He is protective, yet those who know him know that he wouldn't even dream of hurting a fly. He is one of the smartest dogs we have ever seen, and such a good, lovable boy. If we ever get another dog, we will absolutely be repeat customers of yours! Thank you so much for an amazing addition to our large family. We love him so very much, and we appreciate him every minute of every day.
    Thank you,
    Josh and Sarah




    Just wanted to send you an e-mail and let you know that our puppy Angel is doing really good. She loves her new home and has become a cherished part of our family. She is growing so big and we absolutely love her. I am sending two pictures for now and will keep you updated. Hope everyone is healthy and happy.

    Here are some pictures of Badami, she is turning out to be a great dog.





    Here are a few pictures of Pirata when he was 16 months old. Still looking and acting same way today as he was then.
