Brookstone Kennels Labrador Training

Brookstone Kennels is pleased to train your Brookstone Labrador to any of our offered standards. We abide to a strict policy of only training Labradors that are from our kennel. This policy in turn ensures our clients the highest level of priority. However, to maintain our stringent quality standards we limit the number of dogs we take in for training. If you would like us to train your Brookstone Labrador we urge you to contact us as soon as possible to discuss availability as spaces fill up quickly.
