Welcome to CountryCrest Labrador Retrievers!  We are a breeder and trainer of generations of BOB Champion English Labrador Retrievers located in beautiful Western Arkansas.  We aspire for AKC conformation, train our gun dogs to excel at hunt tests, Obedience, Agility, etc.  CountryCrest Labrador Retrievers offers black, chocolate, and yellow Labrador Retrievers.  Our puppies are loyal family companions, with all the wonderful, natural traits a great Labrador Retriever offers. We offer obedience, gun dog training, and puppies for adoption in Arkansas.​ It is our heartfelt mission at CountryCrest Labrador Retrievers, located in Western Arkansas, to continue to breed generations of proven GCH CH English Group Winners and Best of Breed Labrador Retrievers that have been hand-raised from birth. At the early age of 3 days old we start neurological stimulation and socializing our puppies for a sound and balanced dog.
