Our goal at Bayside Labradors is to breed Labrador Retrievers that demonstrate abilities in a wide variety of work related arenas, proving the extreme success of our breeding program since 1983 and the amazing versatility of the Labrador Retriever breed.
Bayside Labradors has been producing OFA Health Certified (CHIC) Labrador Puppies through their successful breeding program. We are recognized as Breeders of Merit by AKC. We screen potential puppy buyers and support AKC Limited Registration. We do not support the idea of any color other than Black, Yellow or Chocolate in the breed. Silver, Champagne or Charcoal designer dog colors are NOT purebred Labradors.
Bayside Labs are proven successful Labrador Retrievers for Hunting Gun Dogs, AKC Field Trials, Hunt Tests and Obedience competition. Bayside Labs are also certified as working FEMA, Search and Rescue, Agility dogs and International Therapy dogs as well Human Remains Detection, Cancer, Meth, Cocaine, & Marijuana detection dogs.
Additionally, we have been very competitive at Master National Retriever Club for the past 18 years, qualifying numerous dogs, having several in the Master National Hall of Fame and numerous Master Hunter dogs. Our dogs are reaching out into field trials and becoming successful with owner handlers at the Derby, Qualifying and the Amateur stakes.
Bayside Labs has been breeding outstanding Labradors Retrievers that are proven successful in performance, good temperament, soundness, intelligence and display good “breed type”. Our puppies are generally a combination of our Champion English Labrador and our Field Trial Labrador lines making for outstanding working field dogs and gentleman gundogs. The temperaments on the dogs of this combination are proven to be livable as wonderful family companions yet are manageable and work with style. We also do have field trial bred pedigrees that support competition in field trials.
Les and Deb recently sold their training facility and have relocated and are now located in the Gallatin Valley of Montana. Bayside Labrador Retriever Breeders, Les and Debra Ziegler, retired and now only train the dogs they have bred and own. Our direction will be leaning more into our quality breeding program. We will still have started dogs available on occasion and prioritize in well socialized and started pups. We are redirecting our training program into helping you train and work with your dogs. We are happy to consult with you if you have a Bayside Labrador.
