A few months ago we went to Lauren at Silver Bow Labradors to find a chocolate female. We chose a happy little pup that is now eight months old. We get compliments on what a beautiful animal she is on a regular basis. Along with that comes one of the best personalities, she loves everyone and gets along with all dogs we encounter. She is supper intelligent, has a motor that never quits but is so mellow she falls asleep while being given a bath. It has been a pleasure to Whistle train her, very quick to pick up on commands, loves the water and any fetch game she plays. Lauren is great to work with, we have been very happy to recommend her and would not go anywhere else for a pup.

After much research, I recently chose to purchase my next Chocolate Lab from Silverbow Labs. The experience I had working with Lauren was AMAZING from the beginning. It was a lengthy process by my own choice, and in the end, I was blessed with the privilege of “first pick” from a pairing of Buck and Twister. Lauren was patient with my particular nature and laundry list of questions. Her experience as a breeder was evident, and she was willing to answer all my questions. She provided great tips and guidance but, in the end, encouraged me to choose the pup I felt would best suit my family and my needs as a hunter. On the day I arrived to select my pup, I had my 7-year-old son with me, and we were welcomed with open arms. The selection process was no pressure and lots of conversation. My pup is now about 7 months old, and he has exceeded all my hopes and expectations. “Buck Jr” is very energetic but also extremely, naturally intelligent and obedient. He LOVES to retrieve and lives for the water, both of which I also observed to be strong natural desires for him. He is playful but gentle with my children (now 4 and 8) and very loyal to my family and I, yet also very friendly and social. We could not be happier with our experience at Silverbow. I have, and will continue, to recommend Silverbow Labs to anyone who asks. I plan to return to Silverbow Labs in the future to visit AND to select my next pup, when that time comes.

We had a great experience with Lauren. She has amazing dogs. They are pretty, smart and so kind to people! The whole experience with Lauren is wonderful. She accommodates us and gave tips on how to handle new puppies. We would recommend it to anyone looking for an amazing family dog!

I recently chose Silverbow Labs for a Chocolate Lab for my family but ended up leaving with so much more. While waiting for my puppy the breeder Lauren kept me up to date and informed of everything that was going on with the process which included expected litter dates and was notified immediately when the puppies were born! Upon arrival to pick up the puppy we instantly felt like part of the family which definitely made the whole process of actually choosing a pup a lot easier. We were able to take our time and observe the puppies before actually making a decision and never felt rushed for a minute. It has been awhile since a puppy was in our home and we appreciated speaking with Lauren who was able to offer expert advice on feeding, training and raising the pup. That day our family was not only blessed with a beautiful chocolate lab but also a new friend that I feel comfortable calling anytime with additional questions. Silverbow Labs has a customer and friend for years to come and I would highly recommend them to any of my friends and family.

We were blown away by our experience with Silverbow Labradors. From arriving on the property, Lauren greeted us as if we were family. She guided us in the selection of our pup and gave us ample time to bond with each one. She gave us just the right amount of information about each puppy without influencing our decision. It really is about finding the best fit for each family. We are so grateful to be home with the newest addition to our family, and I know we will stay in touch with Lauren. This is a lifelong relationship.
At our puppy’s first vet appointment the doctor’s words were, “He’s the perfect puppy- perfect demeanor- perfect health- so sweet.”

First, I must say that we LOVE our Silverbow pup. Every time we take her out people comment on how stunning she is. We have had many people tell us that “she is calm for a lab”. That is a Silverbow pup, hard charging in the field and calm inside. Lauren has chosen her lines well, ensuring excellent health, intelligence and a fantastic temperament. We are clients for life! Thank you Silverbow and Lauren for a wonderful addition to our family!
