Welcome to the Middlebranch Labs Homepage.

We strive to provide healthy, easily trained, easy
handling dogs that will continue to represent the
Labrador breed.  Each year our family produces one or
two litters of pups from our own females.  All of our
pups are bred to be hunters, family dogs, and good
examples of the breed standard.  We expect our dogs
to hunt hard, handle well, and look good.  Pictured
above  are our family dogs,  Nova, Cookie, Riser are
all hunted on grouse, ducks, and pheasants.  All  dogs
used in our breeding program    have hips that are
rated good or excellent by the Orthopedic Foundation
for Animals (OFA).  Our puppies  receive plenty of
TLC.  Pedigrees are available on this site.  All puppies
come with a written health guarantee.  We are located
in Northeastern Wisconsin, approximately 30 miles
from the Upper Peninnsula of Michigan.

.... Is doing Great!  Anytime he sees me
ready to go hunting, he gets all excited.  
We hunted ducks, geese, and grouse, all
of which he retrieved on his own the first
fall.  He sometimes gets depressed when
he doesn't get to go hunting all the time.
...... is  doing fabulous!  She is already
wading in the water and loving it.  She
wants to get along with everyone.  She
seems to be really smart, even at this
puppy stage.  If you have a litter this  
summer, let us know.
Other than a short stage of ankle biting,
she has been great!  She loves to fetch.  
She has the calmest disposition.
Wonderful, at 8 months lst fall, we
never lost a bird out of about 30 grouse!
He was making water retrieves a 11
weeks.  Well mannered, laid back, and
calm.  Thanks!
