Thank you for visiting West End Retrievers. We are a full service training kennel. We specialize in training for AKC Hunt Tests and UKC / HRC Hunt Tests. We also offer Gun Dog training, started dogs and phenomenally bred Labrador Retriever puppies when available.


OUR MISSION: to provide highly trained Retrievers that give the owner the best chance of success in the field or in competition.


We have been involved with high performance Labrador Retrievers since 1993 and have been hooked ever since. We started out in AKC Hunt Tests and will be running UKC Hunt Test as well in the near future.

If your goals of having a well functioning competition dog for AKC or UKC Hunt Tests or simply a working retriever for a hunting buddy and family member, please consider letting us train your dog.


We believe strong proven pedigrees are the keys to future success. We strive to breed our Field Champion (FC/AFC) sired competition girls to proven Field Champion (FC/AFC) sires or better (NFC/NAFC), in the hopes of producing genetically sound, good looking, super athletic, no quit, retrieving machines.



Our dogs have OFA certifications on their hips and elbows, their eyes are CERF’d, and they are DNA tested for CNM, EIC, and PRA. Our puppies come with a 26-month health guarantee against genetic hip and eye defects. Throughout the year we have litters of pups that are black, yellow, or chocolate.
