Lab Breeder Reviews


Hidden Pond Labradors

We got our Sam in December of 2019, and he is one of the best tempered dogs I have ever met. He is currently in training to be my service dog, and has passed every milestone months before other dogs his age. He has never met a dog (or cat) he didn’t love, gets along well with all ages, and has the perfect blend of energy and cuddles. He is healthy, obedient, loyal, goofy, and everything else you could dream of in a dog. Every chance I can I recommend Hidden Pond Labs to people considering a new fur friend. Thank you guys again for our new best friend.

By far the best dog we’ve ever had. Beautiful, smart, trainable and loyal. Our hats off to the folks folks at Hiddon Pond. They have many years of knowledge and there dogs show it. Thank you for our new family member Cassidy.

We picked up our Macy girl a month ago, she is the BEST. So sweet and fun. Dave sent me videos every week of the pups and was very informative when we met. I am so glad we got our pup from Hidden Pond Labs, thank you!!!!

This dog is the kindest most wonderful dog
We heard about Hidden Pond Kennels from a few people who have Labs.
Their bloodline is amazing,

I love how the owners stay in touch with us and want to know about their dogs

The process to own a pure labrador puppy was met with a loving family who cares deeply for their offspring. Family is everything. In the future we plan to bring in an additional sister to our family for Sophia.

We are so happy with Baxter. He is smart, healthy, and just has a wonderful personality! We could not be happier and are so excited for a lifetime of fun and adventure with Baxter!

From the day we picked up Willow, she has been everything Dave said she would be loving, easily trained, smart and the perfect energy level. She absolutely loves the outdoors with hiking and swimming, but then comes home and is perfectly content with snuggling up our lap for a nap. Willow is an absolute joy to have.

I adopted Talullah six years ago from Hidden Pond. In those years she has never had any of the health issues common to poorly bred labs. She has been the picture of good health. She has all of the wonderful qualities that labs are known for. A sweeter more loving dog does not exist.

We got Judge in May of 2017. We had just lost one of our labs in early March and also lost a very close friend on the same day. We, as a family, felt such a gap in our hearts, our other lab missed having a buddy. My dad found Hidden Pond Labs and fell in love instantly. On the day we picked him up, we were told by the breeders that “He had a personality on him, and he was going to be an attention-loving, people-dog. and Boy, was she right. She couldn’t have been more spot on. That’s when we knew that these breeders were so knowledgeable about their craft, and dog-breeding was there specialty. To this day, Judge is our (but really MY) best friend and his Non-stop love has given me endless happiness in the almost 3 years we’ve had him.

Highly recommend hidden pond!

I got Coal in May 2018. I called the day he was born which I think was fate. He is wonderful dog. He was easy to house/ crate train. He is good with other dogs and great with my nieces and nephews. He loves any form of water. He is my best friend ❤️

Very reasonable pricing beautiful breeding , we purchased a chocolate lab Who is 11 weeks old? He has brought a lot of light to our home. Couldn’t thank Hidden Ponds enough.

I received Champ as a pup from Danni and Thunder. He has been a joy, shortly after I brought him home at 8 weeks old, maybe a month later, I commanded him to sit just to see what he would do and do you know what he did? He sat! What a good observer as a puppy! He is eager to learn and please, he is an absolutely positive addition to our family! So glad we got him!

Murphy was picked up in October 2017 … he turned 2 in late August 2019.

Could not be happier! He has a wonderful heart, constantly gets compliments for his looks (his coat, his face, etc.). He was also an incredibly easy puppy to raise. Smart, quick learner, eager to please.

Hidden Pond Labradors was also a wonderful experience. They shared photos of the litter as I waited for pick up day, were incredibly prepared the day I showed up, and also available for guidance and advice the first couple months after I brought him home.

It takes so much effort not to sign up for another puppy from Hidden Pond. I’ll succumb to that desire again soon, I’m sure.

Indiana Jones

Indy is 13 weeks old today and a big ball of love. His temperament is so mellow and calm and really takes direction well. His coat is gorgeous and has brought so much joy to our family. Dave and his family at Hidden Pond were so wonderful through the whole process, and we cannot wait to continue to get our animals from them in the future.

Jackson Flash

Jackson Flash, from the Rosie and George lifter is just over 3 months now and we all have adjusted to one another beautifully! Jackson is now following simple commands such as sit, stay, lay down and come! We are working on speak and paw! He loves the cooling temps and he especially loved our weekend in the ADK. We couldn’t be happier with Hidden Pond Labs. Jackson is truly a beautiful dog and we get compliments constantly since we started taking him places with us. Dads new fishing buddy

Luna is 2 1/2 years old and beautiful. She is a favorite with the grandchildren and anyone who Mets her on her walks. She is playful and a wonderful addition to our family. Her coat is stunning, her vet loves her.

We’re very thankful for her great start at Hidden Pond ~
She’s beautiful.

A pup bred from Maria and Blake – Seamus brings energy, laughter, and love to our lives. His ability to listen and be trained so quickly makes it easy to trust him with our whole home – and he just turned a year old! We got him Memorial Day Weekend 2017. We will definitely be back in the future for more Hidden Ponds pups!!

Boog is a pup from the Coco and Blake litter in August of 2016 and we couldn’t be happier. He is smart, handsome, and a giant snuggly lap dog. His abillity to learn quickly has made him a superb hunting buddy for my husband. He is a treasure.

Hey Dave! Hope everyone is doing great. Just wanted to tell you what a handsome and sweet boy Charlie is. It will be a year in October since we picked up Charlie from Hannah and Expresso’s litter. Charlie has been a great puppy and is becoming a wonderful young man. He’s always happy, ready to play, and ready to give kisses. He has been the perfect addition to our family and always makes us laugh. His personality and temperament has made these past 10 months amazing. He’s such a smart pup, which made training a breeze. Thank you so much for helping me find the perfect puppy for my family!!!

Stella is a wonderful addition to our family. She is so beautiful and has a wonderful personality. She is lovable but enjoys her independence. She loves being outside with her best friend Rue (Shih-poo).We can’t begin to thank Dave for the care, and attention he gives to all his labs. Thank you for our Stella!

I had got Tiko in April 2016 from Coco’s February liter. Tiko is now 8 months old and one of the best looking labs I have ever owned. Tiko has an incredible nose and instinct to hunt.

Bentley & Bella

Just wanted to send you a quick update to let you know how the babies are doing. They have two weeks left of their first training class and they are doing great! Bella is finally staying awake for the whole class and Bentley is calming right down. Bella is a cuddler and prefers to be inside sitting on the couch with Haleigh or reading books with Wesley. Bentley loves to be outside running around and playing with sticks. We get compliments on them ALL THE TIME so your name comes up quite often! We forgot how much work puppies are but they are doing great and they have become best buds!



We bought a chocolate lab from you, we named him Chester… Just wanted to let you guys know, he’s turned into a handsome young man, and gets along tremendously with Daisy, our 200 pound mastiff female. They are inseparable and could not be better friends. Thanks so much



Healthy Black Lab Pup

Hope you are well. I just wanted to give you an update on Beaux, the black lab we adopted from you back in October. Well, she’s thriving and she’s been a wonderful addition to the family. She’s very good natured and sweet. Very bright and full of puppy mischief – likes to steal socks out of the laundry basket, or off your feet if you’re not paying attention! Here’s a some photos of her over the last few months.
