About Us

We believe Quality is much more important than Quantity.

We are a small family farm that specializes in raising quality dual-purpose British Labradors and Cocker Spaniels. We believe Quality is much more important than Quantity.

We want to produce both family companions with high drive and style. We will raise several litters of English Labradors and Cocker Spaniels each year only from quality genetics available. We want our customers to be very happy with the puppies we produce.

We do not have puppies available at all times and limited started or finished dogs. If you are interested in adding one of our puppies to your family, please contact us.

Our Standards For British Labrador Retrievers Are High...

Growing up hunting waterfowl along the Mississippi River, our family farm pond, farm fields, and pockets of water on islands is where hunting with a dog took hold.

Naturally, upland bird hunting followed as this gave another avenue for adding variety to watching dog work. I have a hard time describing what feeling I get when hunting with well-bred, well-trained dogs work gives me. The only problem I have experienced was our hunting season was never long enough!

By raising and training dogs I am able to have a year-long season which is one of the main reasons why we do what we do.We have great joy knowing we are able to help fellow outdoorsmen and women share the same experiences we get on our farm!

Thank You!

Berry Creek Labs would like to thank two individuals who have been instrumental with helping our kennel get started. We are very grateful and appreciative for the help and guidance received from both. We would not be able to do what we do without the help of:


Hal Chaney of Linden Kennels located in Southeast Iowa has professionally raised, trained, and competed bird dogs for 35 plus years. Hal has worked several of our dogs and will continue evaluating our future breeding stock for our breeding program.


Mark Hairfield of Southaven Kennels located in Texas has professionally raised, trained, and competed bird dogs for 42 plus years. Mark has imported British Labradors from the U.K. for 30 years and has a wealth of knowledge for the quality of dog we want to produce at Berry Creek Labs.
