LABRADOR PUPPY REVIEWS
AKC Inspected Kennel With 100% Compliance
My name is Theresa Thompson. The purchase of the right dog is essential to me and my family for many reasons. My husband and I have 5 grandchildren so a labrador with the right temperament is very important. I am a dog trainer so breeding, health, and reputation of breeder is also very important. I am a volunteer with ICAN. Indiana Canine Assistant Network, an accredited service dog program. Several times throughout the year for 3-6 week periods of time, I will provide care, housing and reinforce training for these puppies in training with the ICAN program. It is critical during these times that I myself own a dog I can rely on! I am passionate about labs! It is very important to me that the breeder be AKC registered which is what originally led me to RCM.
Ron put me in contact with someone near me that already purchased one of his dogs which was really wonderful. RCM is about 3 hour drive for me but after meeting someone that already purchased a dog, reading over the website, and talking to Ron many times I was pretty sure this was the right place. Ron was absolutely wonderful to work with. He is very accommodating and knowledgeable. I made the drive to RCM over 2 years ago! Best thing I ever did! The place was beautiful and clean and well organized. I received a wonderful folder with photos of the parents and all the paper work! VERY organized and impressive.
The best part is my Luna, who turned 2 in February 2020, is not only beautiful, healthy, smart, sweet, happy dog but she is a certified therapy dog with an accredited therapy program, Paws to Think. She also received her Paws to Heal certification, and Crisis response certification. She is very well bred to be sure! I can not thank Ron and RCM enough for what they do and how well they do it! It was and continues to be a great experience and I would purchase another dog from them in a heart beat!
We lost our 10 year old dog Lola in October 2019. It was a very sad and difficult time in our life and we did not plan on adding another dog to the family any time soon.
However, one day my kids and I were browsing different puppies online. We came across a yellow lab named Gloria! I had secretly been researching puppies online and had already made a decision that our next dog would be a yellow lab named Gloria!
I didn’t believe this to be just a coincidence so I reached out to Ron. Ron was very quick to respond and invited my family out to meet Gloria. The kennel itself was very clean, immaculate even. All the puppies and dogs were very friendly. Ron let us hold and play with Gloria and we also had a chance to meet Gloria’s mom.
Ron extended the invitation for us to meet Gloria any time we wanted, which mean I secretly met with Gloria three more times!
Ron was also kind enough to hold on to Gloria for us due to the family already having a trip planned. We took Gloria home on January 7th, 2020.
I have never had a Labrador retriever before. However, Gloria is the sweetest, calmest, and most well behaved puppy I have ever seen. She is extremely smart and picks up on training and new commands almost immediately. She is also very kind to strangers and loves being in the middle of playing with the kids.
If you are thinking of the perfect family dog, I highly recommend RCM to provide you with that lab. Gloria filled a hole in our hearts and we are so thankful to have her as a member of the family!
I could not be happier with my experience with Ron and RCM Kennels! I reserved my puppy very early on and Ron wonderful at keeping me informed on how thing were going.Once Archer was born, he sent photos frequently and kept me up to date on his checkups. We visited Archer at 4 weeks and I was extremely impressed with how the kennels are run and kept. I highly recommend Ron and RCM Kennels for anyone looking for a quality bred English Lab!
I couldn't be more thrilled by working with Ron to get my black Lab, Knox. The process was very easy and he kept me updated on everything regarding my little boy. Being able to visit my pup before picking him up was wonderful. Ron is very informative about what steps you need to take when taking your new puppy home. This is my firsttime with a purebred and later I will be going back to RCM to add additional members to my family.
We enjoyed our experience with you and felt that you provided us with lots of useful information for potty training and crate training. Working with you was easy as you kept us posted on Bella and how she was doing and took time to answer any questions that we had. I would recommend you to anyone looking to bring an English Labrador to their family.
Our experience with RCM Kennels was fantastic! They let us come spend time with the litter of puppies and choose our new best friend in a relaxed, friendly & fun manner. They did not rush us but made us feel welcome. They then sent us updates and pictures of our puppy until we were able to get her. The binder they provided when we picked her up was full of information and has been very helpful. They were happy to help with any questions or problems we had from food to house training once we had Dixie home. We LOVE RCM Kennels!!
He is doing great! Loving my dogs them well they are working towards it lol. When he cries in his crate I take him out and he does his business then back to sleep lol...I will tell you this you all did an amazing job best pup I have gotten from a breeder...you can really tell he has been worked with and taken very good care of... Thank you both for that
I am thrilled with my Black Lab puppy from RCM Kennels. Before she was old enough to leave I visited Nahla at the kennels and was amazed at the cleanliness and quality of the operation. The puppies were all beautiful and healthy. At Nahla's first vet check they were amazed after the fecal test that they found zero parasites or worms. Nahla has become our official greeter at my insurance agency. She is happy, healthy and loves both people and other animals. She can't contain her excitement when she see's a child. If anyone is looking for a healthy puppy with a great temperament check with RCM Kennels. They are the best.
It’s been five years since we drove from Paducah, KY, to RCM Kennels to pick up our new puppy. We were in love at first sight! As empty nesters, we were a little hesitant to start over with a puppy; however, it has been one of the best experiences of our lives! Lucy is gorgeous, loving, healthy, and has a wonderful personality. We take her for long walks in our neighborhood, and everyone knows her. She loves people and other dogs; the more attention she gets, the happier she is. She’s a clown and has a huge loving heart. She loves cuddling and being close to us. She sits with us in our office chair, lays on our feet when we are standing, and nestles close in bed. The two words that describe her best are love and loyalty. We can never thank RCM Kennel enough for literally changing our lives, for the better, by breeding such an amazing animal! She is a very important member of our family!

Ron , Hi .. Sadie is doing great. Her and Zoie are getting along really good and have become buddies. Each time we go into the vets office they can not believe how big she gets. Everyone who sees her says she is a beautiful lab. We tell them about you and where she came from .She loves to fetch, go for a walk, play outside and go for rides. She knows how to walk on the lead, sit, she waits at the door until we go out or in first, ,pretty much potty trained and we are working on down and stay. She is so smart. You are to be saluted for being such a great breeder of the Labrador. Thanks again , Debbie and Mike Watts

Piper has the best temperament of any lab we have ever known… such a wonderful girl! She is truly a blessing to our family…you are a wonderful breeder & we recommend you to everyone!
- Melanie Moreno
Wonderful experience at RCM kennels! Pups are raised in a warm family environment....our black lab Woodford....has the best disposition! Quickly integrated into our home! Didn’t think I could love a dog so much! Highly recommend this breeder!
- Millicent Meehan
RCM Kennels were a pleasure to work with while looking for a lab puppy. Ron responded quickly, and was super helpful throughout the process. Zola has the best temperament, and is beautiful! Thank you RCM Kennels! ❤️

We got our puppy Stanley from this wonderful place and could not be more happy! The kennel is well kept and all the puppies are in wonderful order. The owner could not have been more helpful. Our puppy is the most well behaved puppy I have ever been around. Both the mom and dad were on site for us to see. I highly recommend these dogs and we will be back for another one.

Just wanted to let you know that Betsy checked out great with the Vet. She is an extremely low-key and friendly dog, we could not have asked for a better disposition. She is becoming very comfortable in her new home and really seems happy. The crate training is fantastic and she is quickly learning how to Sit and Come on commands. She doesn't like being on a leash yet but that is okay as she likes to stay in one corner of our yard which as a slope that looks out to open land and a big pond. She likes to run through the mulch and bushes on the hill and then pops out to keep an eye on the kids playing in the yard, sometimes running down the hill to catch them. Her new name is Tater, great puppy and looking forward to her becoming a great adult dog.

Miles loves everything and everyone, and is the perfect companion for me while I'm in law school. He is a growing boy, and at almost 6 months old, Miles weighs almost 60lbs.He loves chewing on bones, hiking, belly-rubs, and wrestling with his sister Riley, who is a third his size and runs circles around him. His only dislikes are not being the center of attention, which is hardly ever the case, and saying goodbye to my girlfriend Jenna and her dog Riley (aka Miles' sister) when they have to leave after visiting. I am so glad that we found RCM Kennels, and found a beautiful dog and perfect companion. I would highly suggest the RCM Kennel family to anyone who is looking for the perfect pup!
We absolutely love our puppy, Finn!!! Everywhere we take him we get so many compliments on how beautiful he is and how he is going to be a big boy =)....hopefully you enjoy the pics I’m sending. I took them about a week or so ago. He is now weighing in at over 30lbs (just weighed him today at the vet).....just a ball of energy and such a personality!!! And he has been quite easy to train as far as potty training and sitting and things, and he LOVES to play fetch! My husband and i talked about wanting to get him a little friend sometime and we will definitely be contacting you in the future for such a friend (kind of wanting a bulldog this time =) ). Thank you for such a perfect addition to our family!! We love Finn!!!

This is Ryan and Haley, we just wanted to let you know how amazing our puppy is doing. We named her Brooklyn and she is the sweetest and most precious dog we could have ever asked for. We are so happy with her and just wanted to say thank you ! :) hope all your other puppies found a great home!!!
- Thanks again!
Haley and Ryan
Thank you so much for everything! The entire process of picking out our puppy, and bringing him home was so wonderful, you and your family were so welcoming and sweet. We couldn't ask for a better experience. Gunner fits right in! He has had a busy first day with us, we played and played, and we went to the ball park for our nephews ball game and got lots and lots of attention. :) We are in love with our new addition!
- Thank you again!

Hello! I just wanted to send you an updated picture of our happy family. The picture is when they were 8 months. We're at about 10 now. Henry and Graham are doing great. They are so smart we love them so much. Thank you for breeding such great animals. We look forward to enjoying them for a long time.

My name is Eileen. My boyfriend Kelly and I just bought Foley our yellow lab from the litter born on November 23, 2009. We love him so much,i don't think we could have asked for a better dog. He is already potty trained and knows sit and speak. we are hoping to start him in some training classes in the next couple of weeks. Earlier this week I recommended you to my friend and her husband, after doing so Kelly and I decided we wanted another, someone forFoley to play with.I talked to her today and she told me a litter of 10 was born. We were interested in any information you could give us about adopting a chocolate baby girl. Foley makes us so happy, we thought another would make us twice as happy. Hope to hear from you soon.
- Thank you,
Rosie is doing great. We've had a bunch of visitors from the time she got here and she gets along with everyone, very loving dog with the cutest little face. Also, she's very social with the Chihuahua we have at home. In the 3rd day she was here I began the training. She can already sit on command and I'm working on "Down" at the moment. It actually only took me a few tries in the same day and she already understood. Very smart puppy! She loves playing in the snow and loves cold places. I absolutely adore her, my whole family loves her. I've had friends come over from all over just to see her. Everyone agrees that Labrador retrievers make the perfect pet and they're surprised I actually bought her so cheap with all the things that were included. You truly make the best deal Ron, thanks for everything, you were very helpful and you can be sure that I will recommend RCM Kennels to every one of my friends.
When I started looking for a new dog, it was tough because there didn’t seem to be many affordable dogs that were healthy and came from a reputable breeder. It seemed like every dog either had 17 champions in its lineage and was way out of my price range or the owners had done no health checks and were just trying to unload the dogs on someone. That’s when I found RCM Kennels. Their dogs all have very healthy parents and the puppies were reasonably priced. Ron was great to deal with and made the entire experience of buying a new dog very smooth. He took the time to answer my questions honestly and thoroughly and I had a lot of questions. In addition, he continually maintains his website and sends you updates on how your dog is doing. Its obvious he loves his work. I’m now the proud owner of a three month old, very energetic, yellow lab. He passed all of his checkups with flying colors and continues to grow at a remarkable rate. I highly recommend RCM Kennels if you’re in the market for a Lab.
Thank you so much for our experience of buying a puppy from you. Everything went so smooth and you were so nice and helpful.(Not to mention what a wonderful, smart and beautiful dog we got!) I would highly recommend your kennel to anyone looking to add a furry member to their family!! Thanks again for Lacey!

Hi Ron, sorry I haven't got back to you. It’s been a big month and a half for me and my puppy. I named him Jet. He is growing extremely fast. He is a very smart puppy and is everything that I was hoping he would be and more. He was already retrieving very well on the second day that I had him and he immediately took to swimming the first time that I brought him to the park on his first week here. He just jumped right in and started swimming, so I decided to throw one of his toys in and he swam all the way out and retrieved it! He pretty much automatically knew how to sit and knew come. He has been a good new playmate for my other dog that hasn't got this much exercise in a long time. This is one excellent dog and I would recommend your dogs to anyone, hunter, breeder, or owner.

My family and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience of purchasing "Sarge" from your kennels. This was our first experience at purchasing a puppy over the Internet and you truly made it a terrific one. Sarge is adjusting well and is already spoiled rotten. The kids love him but the only problem is that I think he likes my wife the most of all(he was supposed to be my dog.) We will email you pictures later on down the line. Thanks once again for a terrific puppy and your sincerity and honesty. Feel free to use me as a contact if you need to in the future.
In February, 2007 my husband and I bought 2 labs from you. It was a very pleasant experience from the picture you sent every week until we could take them home to the paper work there was never a problem. The day we came to look at the puppies we only intended to get one yellow male puppy, but we bought 2 the yellow (Guss) and a chocolate female (Jessie). They are now 9 months old they are house dogs and they are part of our family. They are great retrievers they love the water and love to retrieve anything from balls to birds. Thank you for such 2 great additions to our family.

Just dropping you a note to say that our Yellow Lab, "Baby Bob" is one of the most wonderful dogs we have had the pleasure to adopt.
We highly recommend RCM Kennels for your next dog. Ron was great to work with! Remy is almost 6 months old now. She has brought so much joy to our family since we brought her home as a puppy!
We cannot say enough great things about our newest addition, Frida. She has an awesome personality and is extremely smart. After the first week, she could sit, stay, lay, high-five, and roll over. We are constantly getting compliments from strangers on how well behaved and beautiful Frida is. Needles to say, we could not have asked for a better dog. She has brought so much joy to our lives, and we cannot thank Ron enough. He was extremely helpful and kept us up-to-date through the entire process. We highly recommend RCM Kennels to anyone looking for the same great experience!

I highly recommend RCM Kennels! We brought home our sweet English Lab, Huckleberry, on Wednesday and we are in LOVE! Ron made the process very easy & he was very professional. Huckleberry had his first check up with the vet & they were very impressed! Huck has already brought us so much joy and potty training has been a breeze because he was already litter trained!
Thank you RCM Kennels for giving us the sweetest pup! He is the best!
We have had a great experience with RCM Kennels. They truly care about the well being of each and every pup. We have a wonderfully happy and healthy addition to our family. Thanks again for bringing us so much joy.

When we were looking for a new fur baby, specifically a Black Lab, we had no idea where to go. We looked online & decided to call RCM Kennels in Bloomfield, Kentucky. From the moment I spoke with owner Ron Morris, I knew we had made the right decision. He took us through all the steps to acquire a Lab puppy. He kept us up to date on our puppy’s birth & let us pick our own boy once the puppies were born. He emailed pictures of him until it was time for us to bring him home. He really cares about all of his dogs! I highly recommend RCM Kennels. They are the best!
I appreciated how organized and detailed you were concerning the puppy, it’s care, and all the other things that go along with a new fur baby. I love that she was litter trained and I feel that it really helped her to be potty trained more easily - which was a benefit for us too! She is a fantastic dog with the sweetest temperament. We would definitely recommend you and your dogs to anyone looking for a lab.
