Welcome to our Thunder Labrador LLC website.
We do extensive DNA testing along with radiographs to guarantee your Labrador puppy's health. Here are a few important reasons you should choose us to be your breeder:

1) We offer a 12-way Health Guarantee on all Thunder Labradors. Compare us to others. Hip, Eye, Elbow, Heart, Shoulder, EIC, CNM, PRA, DM, CY, HNPK and HUU Guarantee on all Thunder Labrador puppies. There is a table below that tells you what all these acronyms mean. You want none of them.

2) We offer superior pedigrees. We believe everything begins and ends with pedigree. Most of our puppies are the grandsons and granddaughters of a Field Champion (FC) or a National Field Champion (NAFC). All our stud dogs are titled too. That is how you get a smart, trainable puppy. Excellent companion/family dogs too. Most of our pups never see the field at their forever homes. But, with training, these dogs will hunt or hunt test. Tell us what you want to do with your dog and we will steer you in the right direction.

3) Equally as important as a pup's ancestry, is the socialization he or she receives. Our socialization program is second to none. All of our puppies go through an Early Neurological Stimulation Program. (ENS) See our Testimonial Page and see what past customers have said about our Labrador pups. Our "PUPPY PLAYLAND" allows for socialization and motor skill development. Pups are handled daily.

4) We have over 20 years experience socializing puppies and fulfilling customer needs. The tail works on all our puppies. See our TESTIMONIAL page.

5) Our puppies and dogs enjoy a stress-free environment. Consistent temperatures with in-floor heat and AC. Consistent dog and human interaction too.

6) We start the crate conditioning.

7) We offer free phone consultations for life. Great for first time puppy owners.

We offer a Hip, Eye, Elbow, Shoulder, Heart, CNM, EIC, PRA, DM, CY, HNPK, and HUU Guarantee on all Thunder Labradors.

All our studs are TESTED CLEAR of:

Cystinuria (CY) is an inherited autosomal recessive disorder and is characterized by the formation of cystine stones in the kidney, ureter, and bladder.

PRA-prcd (PRA) is inherited as an autosomal recessive disease. Degeneration of both rod and cone photoreceptor cells of the retina of PRA-prcd affected dogs usually occurs 3 to 5 years of age or later.

Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis (HNPK) is an inherited autosomal recessive disorder. Affected dogs begin showing clinical signs around six to twelve months of age. They develop dry, rough crusts on the tip of the nose. In extreme cases, the nose will crack causing severe discomfort.

Dogs clinically affected by inherited Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC) will often begin to exhibit leg weakness followed by a complete collapse after just 5 to 15 minutes of strenuous activity.

Canine Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) is a devastating inherited degenerative disease of the spinal cord that can progress rapidly and cause weakness in the hind limbs and eventually paraplegia among genotypically affected dogs.

Centronuclear Myopathy (CNM) is an inherited autosomal recessive disorder. Affected pups start with significant weight loss at just a few weeks of age. Within a few months, there is a loss of tendon reflexes, awkward gait and exercise intolerance.

Hyperuricosuria, (HUU), or elevated uric acid level in the urine, is inherited as an autosomal recessive disorder and is characterized by the formation of bladder stones and occasional kidney stones.

Due to our DNA testing, you can purchase a Thunder Labrador puppy with confidence, knowing there is no way genetically possible for you to buy a pup that is AFFECTED by any of these genetic disorders. Compare our testing to other Lab breeders. We believe we offer more health guarantees, for more disorders, than any breeder in the state, possibly the entire USA.

Visitors welcome, just make an appointment. It is a requirement that we are the only kennel you visit on the day you visit us. Please step on our sanitation foot pads before entering the kennel.

There is a $100 WI Dog Law fee on all pups sold to offset the expenses incurred while complying with the State of Wisconsin Dog Licensing Law. We passed our first State Inspection on August 17, 2011, and have passed yearly inspections since.
