Sam (angel/tank) at 10 weeks. He does great on walks, tells us when he needs to go out, takes his boy to school everyday and cries when we leave, plays with the cats very gently, loves flower beds, and even is doing an awesome job with the sit command. He is pretty amazing! Thankful for this boy!

sweetheart and very cuddly. She has adjusted wonderfully. You really did
a excellent working with the puppies so they aren't stressed when they

I would like to give a big thank you to Trixie Cogar . Your every bit the person I thought you were. Sweet and a personality to match. She and Summer gave me the most wonderful gifts I've ever received, my beautiful boy Jayce. He's perfect...he's definitely a little lover. He slept all the way home. I stopped at a McDonald's parking lot to see if he had to go potty and this man in a truck stopped me and said "Can I take a picture of this your beautiful puppy". Even srangers know. Thank you Trixie, you have truly brightened my life and brought joy to my soul.
Forever grateful,

I just wanted to send a quick message to thank you for the care you put in to what you do. Also to tell you how much I love that crazy puppy and I have never really been a dog person( which is weird) but after losing my mom this summer he really has seemed to fill that void...again I am thankful we found you and have our Finn :-)

We named him Harley. He is the greatest Pup and we love him more every day. He has the pooping thing down but can't seem to let us know before he pees. Took him to the vet this week for deworming and he weighs in at 16 lbs. He was 9 lbs. the 1st time we brought him in after we got home. Very affectionate and playful puppy. We couldn't be happier. Thank you for him.

Quick update on our sweet lady Zulu - she is hands down the calm and most affectionate puppy we have ever seen. Everyone that meets her just adores her. And she and my son are best friends! Thanks again, Trixie!"

We found KT Labradors when searching for an English Labrador breeder in Michigan. While KT Labradors is located in Arkansas, they offer a unique option of delivering puppies to Michigan (for a very nominal fee). The delivery process was smooth and we were kept informed of how the trip from AK to MI was going along the way.

We absolutely loved the 24/7 web streaming of the puppies. Watching our puppy via the web cam became a daily ritual for us and we really felt like we knew our little guy before we picked him up. Another thing that drew us to KT Labradors is their love for their animals. It's clear that the dogs at KT Labradors are treated as family. This is evident in what we saw on the web cam and also through our conversations with Trixie (the owner). We were impressed by Trixie's knowledge and responsiveness to our questions--both before and after receiving our puppy. As for our puppy--he is adorable and everything that KT Labradors promised he would be.

I found KT Labradors on the internet while looking for a lab puppy. I found their webcam and started watching my little goober (that is what they call their pups). I felt like they owner was very helpful and friendly. My puppy was happy and well behaved when I picked him up in Pocahontas, AR. The owner seemed to love each of the puppies and knew their personality traits. This is helpful when trying to choose from far away. I would get another puppy from her again in the future. This puppy was our third lab and I have to say the best puppy of all of them. Thank you KT Labrador for the youngest member of our family.

I purchased a male white lab from KT Labradors about a year and a half ago and I had nothing short of an excellent experience when dealing with Trixie. She was very helpful and prompt whenever I had a question or concern. She was very informative and always kept me up to date on how my little guy was doing. It was a lot of fun being able to watch him grow on her puppy cams. We worked together to set a date for delivery from Arkansas to Michigan and he arrived in perfect health. She has kept in touch with me and I really appreciate that. It shows me that she really cares for her pups - even after they go to their forever homes and are all grown up. If you are looking to buy a quality lab, I would suggest you contact Trixie first. You won't be disappointed.

I am very happy with my new puppy from KT Laboradors, so sweet and gentle. I had a very had time finding an English lab in Michigan and the surrounding states until I found KT Labradors. Although they are in Arkansa, they hand deliver the pups to Michigan. The breeders are very nice and very helpful. Made my dream come through. Thank You, KT Labradors

I have had the delightful privilege of watching KT Labrador Canine Moms, puppies and their wonderful Big Mama Trixie Cougar for the past three years via UStream.. I have chatted with many of the buyers of the KTL puppies via UStream and many of them have become my FB friends (partly so I can stay in the loop to hear about their puppies:).) Being that I have been a "fly on the wall" (via UStream) during this time, I would advise anyone seeking to add a Labrador puppy to their family...to not hesitate to get their puppy from KT Labradors. The puppies are highly nurtured by their dedicated canine Moms,. and are closely overseen by Trixie Cougar and her husband Keith. You can be assured that your puppy will reflect the dedication, care, love and attention they will receive ...until they leave for their forever homes... at their KT Labradors Pocahontas home. Personally, I am a huge fan of locating a puppy on UStream. UStream makes it possible to be a witness to your puppy's actual birth and you can continue to enjoy the puppy's growth until the joyful time you meet your Labrador puppy in person. Happy Tails to you :)

I want to start off by saying how pleased I am with Trixie and her business! She did a wonderful job keeping in contact and answering every question with respect and politeness. I was skeptical about doing the transaction but she definitely put me at ease with emailing, calling, and texting when I had a question. So keeping in contact was important to me. I live in the North Chicago area and Trixie's husband delivered the little girl just south of there. Shipping was reasonable and shipped at my convenience. The puppy was in great shape/health and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a beautiful puppy. The vet said she's healthy as a fox!! I love her to death and couldn't be anymore excited! Thanks again Trixie. Two thumbs up for a job well done!

KTLabradors and Trixie Cogar are awesome! I had put down a deposit for a puppy from a future litter a few years ago-but upon one of my very frequent visits to KTLabradors website, I saw my Maddie's little face staring back at me and just had to have her . I emailed Trixie immediately to see if she was still available and with no questions asked, I was able to transfer my deposit and made arrangements to pick her up a few weeks later. Many are skeptical about online purchases -- we had absolutely no issues and received confirmation from KTL that our transactions were secure and had processed. Trixie is by far the most compassionate and knowledgeable breeder. Even after we picked up our beautiful puppy, Trixie always took the time to reply to emails and always answered every question we had about raising our Lab. Maddie was also completely potty trained by the time we brought her home at 8 weeks old. We are in Michigan and KTL was also located in Michigan when we got our puppy. We have been thinking of getting another Lab sometime in the near future, and will not hesitate to contact KTL when that time comes. Now that KTL has relocated to Arkansas - there is no other breeder we trust or would consider working with. Highly recommend this breeder if you are looking for a beautiful, well behaved, well trained Lab!

KT Labradors is awesome. I came into contact with Trixie Cogar and KTLabradors after an extensive search for an English lab puppy in MI. Trixie and KTL transport puppies to MI regularly. My puppy arrived healthy, happy and BEAUTIFUL, exactly as he had looked in online pics and on KTL's webcams. He is definitely an English lab, blocky and stocky as can be. Trixie is very knowledgeable, organized and prompt in answering phone calls, emails and texts, and kept in touch with me after the sale was completed to make sure I was happy with my puppy. I was initially skeptical of purchasing a puppy online from an out-of-state breeder so I called AKC and three references. KTL is in good standing with AKC and all of the references I called were thrilled with KTL, Trixie and their puppies/dogs. If you are looking for an excellent English lab breeder I would highly recommend KTLabradors :-)

I wasn't looking for any specific breeder,or breed for that matter, actually started on Petfinder. We were considering adopting a rescue animal, but nothing worked out for our specific needs. Then, I stumbled onto a listing that said puppies born April 17th, 2009 - this was my older son's birthday, and I thought it was a sign that we needed to investigate. I fell in love with the pictures of the puppies, and called Trixie. We went to visit the puppies, and knew it was a done deal, but had to wait until the end of May to bring him home. Logan is the most wonderful, lovable, silly dog and we all love him fiercely! Thank you again Trixie!

KT Labradors. I stumble on her site purely by accident. I was going through the different Ustream sites and and I read in the title "Montana is in Labor were gonna have puppies today"
Who could resist watching puppies being born? I watched a couple of her moms have puppies. It was so much fun to watch the learn new things and grow. I had my own dog but he was really old and I knew he would not be around much longer. I thought maybe a puppy would put a kick in his step. It actually did make difference but I could not avoid the inevitable.
My experience with KT Labradors was amazing. The thing I loved most about getting my puppies from KTL was I got to watch one of them be born and grow every day until he was in my arms. I wanted two from the same litter but the timing was not working and she did not have any puppies at the time. She loves what she does and is very passionate about it. A friend of hers that is breeder had 3 different litters born with in days of each other and at 8 weeks old she still had like 15 puppies to sell and no way to sell them like KTL Hand on Ustream. Which is one of the most amazing ways to watch the puppies interact and how the owner interacts with all of the puppies. She leaves it on 24/7. She brought in the 15 puppies from St. Louis to Arkansas to help the other breeder sell them. I fell in love with one of them and thought it was meant to be. She sold all of them. She is all about the dog. They are # 1 for her . She interacts will all of the puppies and puts them in an environment that is just like home. They learn so much. 6 months later I had my own KT Labrador puppy. Parents were Sasha and Harley. I watched him everyday. If I had a question she was on the other end of the phone at any time. This spring I actually went there and saw all the whole set up in person. She built a house for the newborns to grow in. She added a birthing house so the Moms having puppies were relaxed and at ease. Trixie is always hands on while puppies are born. The moms love having her there to pet them and it keeps them calm while they are in labor and uncomfortable. The relationship she has with her dogs AKA her kids is very amazing.
Trixie is a very straight forward individual. What you see is what you get. What you get is a whole lot of Love for her pups big and small.

I can't say enough about KT Labradors. I wanted an English Labrador so I went on-line to look. I found her site and by the time I contacted her I already had the parents picked. We put our deposit down and started watching the web cam. We got to see every step any time of day we wanted. Trixie even called us when Sasha went into labor so that we could watch. That's something I will never forget. We live in VA so we were going to fly him here. We couldn't wait so we called Trixie one day and were in Arkansas the next day. When I got there I got to meet all the dogs and puppies! Everything was just as it was on the web cam. My puppy was so sweet! Since daddys name is Tank we named him Diesel. In another year or so we want to get another. I can't imagine going to anyone else.
