Where Quality and Experience Meet                         

Here you will find what you've been missing. We have a solid Labrador Retriever breeding program producing quality puppies for Field Trials and Hunt Tests, bomb dogs, hunting dogs, conformation, obedience (rally, utility dog etc), therapy and the most beautiful family hunting companions.  Our puppy program is based on over 20 years experience professionally training high-end competition retrievers to the National level, see our accomplishments page for a few examples.  Our Labrador training program is headed by experienced professionals that offer lessons, boarding, training and AKC CGC (Canine Good Citizens) testing. Also see our links page for helpful information for labrador owners.  Bring the joy of a new puppy into your home with Labrador retriever raised by Great Expectations in Tomball, Texas.  

Breeding Program
Our goal is to produce the highest quality retriever with natural working ability, incredible temperament, a desire to please and solid conformation.  We utilize both English Imports and accomplished American field dogs to reach our goals.  Our girls are the cornerstone of our breeding program.  Most are competition retrievers and all have incredible pedigrees, are working gundogs with impeccable health clearances. All of our dogs hunt various waterfowl and upland birds. They are full time family dogs and compete in hunt tests and conformation as well. We evaluate all puppies for working/hunting/tracking ability at 7 weeks of age and conformation at 8 weeks of age.
