 FRENCH CREEK LABRADORS is producing retrievers, through proper genetics and training that gives you the opportunity to own a truly unique hunting companion.

By utilizing the BRITISH STANDARD OF GUNDOG TRAINING French Creek Labradors will let you experience a hunting retriever that is calm by nature, has a high degree of trainability, superior scenting ability, a keen hunting instinct and a strong desire to please. Most importantly a dog that remains steady until told to perform.

The BRITISH STANDARD Enhances the natural qualities of our retrievers. Methods of training are gentle,never rushed and always insist upon a obedient, quiet, calm dog that remains steady no matter what the circumstance.


FRENCH CREEK LABRADORS are unlike any you have ever had the pleasure or displeasure of spending a day afield with.

WE ARE HUNTERS!!! and we understand that no one wants to spend a day in the blind or field with dog and handler constantly challenging each other. Unsteady dogs whining, barking and breaking to every shot are not only distracting but, can pose a serious threat to the safety of evryone on the hunt !

Spending a day with a FRENCH CREEK LABRADOR is a day spent the way it was meant to be. Good friends enjoying a great hunt with a truly exceptional retriever. Be the talk of your local hunt club or duck blind next season,



NEW FLOODED TIMBER !!!!! French Creek Labradors continues to improve its ability to effectively train your retriever.  We have gone the extra mile in constructing our new flooded timber to make it as real as it can be. Your dog will thinks he is in an actual beaver swamp!(we actually even built a beaver lodge to add realism!) This newest addition to our training grounds will prove invalable in your dogs experience whether here for headstart or basic gundog. At over 8' deep and with cutoff banks the dogs will have to really work as they get in and out of the water.Also adding to the difficulty are the 2 small islands with channels on the front and back of both, giving your retriever the chance to experience the obstacles he will encounter out in the field with you! As we continue to grow and add to the quality of our facilities your retriever will grow in his expertise as a quality gundog ! So give us a call an set up a tour of our facilities, we would love to share it with you!
