We offer traning services from head start to master level work. What is nice for the customer buying a pup from us is we also will train it. We have two full-time trainers and they have 4 assistants. Our training is unique as we do the traditional retriever training as well as the bird dog training. Most trainers do one or the other. Let your dog spend some time with our trainers to get them ready for the field.Read More

IPL has to be the best breeder of labs in the world in my opinion. I purchased a pup three years ago after a referral from a friend. I wanted a lab but also a great hunting partner. Milo is the first dog I personally purchased and all this was done over the phone with Tim. When Milo arrived my wife house trained him and Milo trained me in upland bird hunting. I cannot say enough good things about IPL. They were always there to answer any questions. He hunts with verbal commands or whistle. I have customers with my bird hunting business that request to hunt with my lab because of his ability and stamina and refuse to hunt what people here in the south refer to traditional bird dogs. When we are done for the day Milo turns the switch off and is my 5yo daughters best friend. I could go on forever but I know a purchase from IPL was the best decision I ever made for field and home.

I absolutely loved my entire experience with these breeders! From setting up our first meeting to staying in contact monthly for updates and/or questions they have been so kind and helpful. You can tell they truely care about the dogs and the families they go home with. Our little Khloe is a sweet and spunky puppy that loves to learn and has such an amazing temperament! She loves meeting new dogs and kids. She has also been so easy to train! I would recommend anyone looking for an amazing hunting and/or family dog to go here!
Tim was great! I called 7 different Kennels around MN, WI and IA. Tim was the only Breeder who returned my calls and stayed in constant communication. Makes me feel extremely comfortable sending my dog back for Gun training in the spring! High quality pup, high quality organization! They’ll be my go to kennel going forward, thanks again!
Couldn’t be more pleased with the whole experience. It’s obvious the people at Iowa Pointing Labs understand and love their dogs. I’ve had hunting dogs my whole life but after just one hunting season with an Iowa pointing lab I can honestly say these dogs are more disciplined, more mature, and better companions than any dog I’ve had in the past.
