Patton Retrievers is a family of dedicated enthusiasts to the retriever sporting world. Our dogs and people work together with a network of experts and peers to become better retrievers, handlers, and return these skills to the arenas of hunting and retrieving sports. This has led us to some the most fulfilling "work" we've ever done and we get to share and appreciate the step-by-step we take with each of our dogs. There's nothing that compares to standing "at the line" with a fine, well tuned retriever.

We promote improvement and progression of the labrador retriever breed by applying the highest breeding standards and providing our dogs with an enriched working environment. This is the equation of success that leads to a better retriever "tomorrow".
