We have two different programs that we offer:

Started/Finished British Labrador Retriever

We train Labrador Retrievers that carry a strong field trial pedigree from the UK.  We have found these dogs to have a strong genetic health background, a strong desire to please, calm disposition, extremely athletic, and the perfect size to do anything and go anywhere you desire.  Below is what you can expect from one of our Labradors

  • Obedience Training –  sit, stay, here, heel, down, and place.
  • Gundog Training – retrieve and deliver to hand.  Exposed to birds, gunfire, blinds, and water.  Started or finished on marks and blinds.  Shed training (available upon request)
  • Exposed to boats/kayak, atvs, people, dogs and other animals.
  • AKC registration and hip, eye, elbow guarantee (if applicable).  Vet checked, etc.
  • Full Trainer support after purchase.

A passion at Trail Life – ALL profits from our started and finished dog program go to support mission organizations across the world that serve in orphan care.  We are blessed with so much and our desire is to use what’s been given to us to serve Orphans across the globe.  Thank you for you partnership and support with this.


Rescue/Adoption program

NEW –  Some of the best companions for those looking for a dog to take out of the trail are often unwanted and in need of adoption.  We specialize in finding  puppies and younger dogs that fit this lifestyle and prepare be great companions.  Most of these dogs are medium size and will mature to around 25-55 lbs.  They go through our training program and are exposed and socialized to all kinds of activities.

  • Obedience Training – these dogs will be taught; here, heel, sit, stay, down,with me, and place.  They will also be socialized to a crate.
  • Socialization – exposed to other dogs, people, places, kayak/paddelboards, horses and other animals, atvs, trails, etc.
  • Will come spayed/neutered, vet checked, and up to date on vaccines
  • These dogs are available free of charge and available to approved homes.  We want to make sure we match you with the right dog.


We’d love to help you find your next companion.   Feel free to contact us anytime with any questions you may have and if you are looking for a new companion.
