About Us

An Ethical Dog Breeder


Founded in 1996, Turning Point Labs is a small, purebred Labrador Retriever breeder located in Central Illinois. Turning Point Labs breeds unique purebred Labrador Retrievers, all of which come from excellent pedigrees. As such, Turning Point Labs are bred for personality and work type, possessing muscular and agile bodies, thicker heads, necks, chests, very high intelligence, supreme obedience and great temperaments. Turning Point Labradors breeds the highest quality Labrador Retrievers and provides an ongoing support network for all of their dogs throughout the course of their lives.

Turning Point Labs is not your average kennel; we are family-owned and operated. Our "Lab Philosophy":

  • Puppies are born, nurtured, socialized and loved. Before going home at 8 weeks old, Turning Point puppies are hand-raised by both adults and children, spending an average of six hours per day being held, played with and trained ("no bite" and "go potty"). Turning Point puppies go home highly socialized, confident and ready to be loved by their new family.

  • Dogs are trained, worked, exercised, played with and loved. I believe that dogs should have at least one planned activity per day and all dogs have a special adventure, game or challenge each and every day.

  • Dogs are treated as important members of the family. All of the dogs live in the house as family. All of this love and care yield happy, confident, healthy breeding stock. There are no anti-social or aggressive dogs at Turning Point Labs.

  •  All of my girls come from championship lineage and possess top-rated pedigrees. Several litters have produced obedience titled dogs, therapy dogs, seeing eye dogs, and award-winning hunters. So whether you are looking for a great family pet or something more, we probably have the lab for you!

We welcome potential dog owners to learn more about the Turning Point family and to meet our quality Labrador Retrievers.
