About Us

     Big Timber Labradors began in 2016. Prior to raising this breed in Montana, our family raised Pyrenese in Texas, which were wonderful family and farm companions. The puppies were cared for amidst gardens, chickens, kittens, cows, a fiesty pony and several children. We successfully re-homed puppies spanning from Texas to Alaska. After almost a decade of caring for these dogs and our love for family-friendly canines, we pursued another breed to raise and have as a part of our family's life. The Labrador's handsome appearance, friendly demeanor, eagerness to please and trainability made them our first choice. 

     Currently, we reside in scenic Montana. Our family gives daily, hands-on care to each animal, with the goal of raising healthy, happy dogs of excellent conformation, are pleasant to live with and possessing qualities of natural hunting companions. Our parent dogs, both champion bloodlines, come from an experienced family kennel who've raised labs for over twenty years and have many dogs being successfully trained for service.
