We picked up our chocolate lab, Gipper, on Feb. 29th. Gipper is a great puppy he’s growing everyday, very active and smart. We couldn’t be happier, he made our home active again. Donnie thank you. We greatly appreciate the hospitality you provided. You and your family are what every breeder should be. We will be back for another puppy. For anyone looking for a lab this is the Breeder you want.
Thank you so much for the great review and we do love the name "Gipper". That is a first and we really do like it. I hope that Gipper is as unique as his name. We are really happy to hear that he is a smart, happy and fun boy and that you are pleased with him. We appreciate you entrusting us for "Gipper" and especially for providing him with a loving home. We do hope that you will keep us updated and we look forward to many more updates. We wish you and your family including "Gipper" all the best!
We had hands down the smoothest and best experience we could have asked for in getting our sweet puppy Millie (this is not related to the review below, but very coincidental as we also picked up our chocolate lab on Feb 29, and named our dog Millie! They are likely sisters with the same name 🙂 )
Donnie was great to work with, provided accurate, timely and detailed information throughout the process and we couldn't be happier with our new addition. Donnie's thorough and careful attention to detail made this a great experience.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a good review, it is greatly appreciated. We do like to hear that new families are so happy with their puppies! Our puppies are a part of our family and we do everything possible to place them in such wonderful homes where we know they are loved. Getting a puppy is like getting a new member of the family and we want to always make it as pleasurable and positive an experience for both the new families and the puppies! We always love to get updates and we hope to get many photos and updates on "Millie". Thank you again and we hope that you have many years of love and joy with Millie!
We picked Charlie up on February 9th. Donnie was very accommodating on pickup time and the puppy was obviously very well socialized by those behind the scenes. Charlie is growing quickly and progressing well with house training, basic commands and leash training. ONSK dogs are just beautiful and their temperament is excellent.
Thank you so much for the nice review. We are really happy to hear that you are pleased with Charlie and that he is progressing so well! Please keep in touch and we look forward to hearing and seeing much more of Charlie's growth. Thank you for giving Charlie a good home and we wish you many years of happiness with him!
Donnie was very easy to deal with starting from talking on the phone, discussing the puppies, and meeting in person. He was very knowledgeable and nice. We got our chocolate lab pup Millie on February 29th. She’s a very beautiful, kid friendly, intelligent, and a laid back dog. Within days she was potty trained. She gets along perfectly with our 8 year old lab. She is definitely going to be a big beautiful lab. If you’re interested in getting a beautiful, intelligent lab I highly recommend Old North State Kennels.
Thank you so much for the great review! We do love the Lab puppies the we produce and we like to hear that it shows with their new families. Temperament and Intelligence are so important and we are glad to hear that "house breaking" or "potty training" has gone so well. We look forward to many updates and we wish you lots of love and happiness with Millie! Thank you, as we thank all of the families for giving our little puppies great homes.
We picked up Tori on the first of February. She’s an absolute pleasure! She’s very easy to train and know multiple commands now at 13 weeks. She’s growing like a weed! We get compliments everywhere we take her. Donnie is an absolute pleasure to deal with. His vast knowledge on labs and kind demeanor made the trip to pick her up even better. We couldn’t be happier!
Thank you so much for the update on Tori and we are happy to hear that she is progressing so well. We are happy to hear that you are so well pleased with her and we do thank you for the kind words with your review. We hope that you will keep in touch and we look forward to many updates on Tori. We thank you for entrusting us for Tori and we wish you many happy years together!
Donnie was wonderful, he always kept in contact with us and kept us up to date on the puppies. Our precious little girl Reaux white female( out of Willis and Lou) is such a sweetie she has a great personality and loves to play and snuggle. We almost had her a week and she is already going to the door to whine to let us know she has to go out to potty, such a smart girl. You can tell she was raised with love and attention. She is a little bundle of energy and love. Thank you Donnie for giving us the opportunity to get our puppy and thank you for being ethical and caring breeder. We truly appreciate and are thankful for all that you do for your beautiful Labradors and their puppies.
Thank you so much for the update and the kind review on Reaux! We are happy to hear that she is such a smart girl and doing so well at her new home with her new family! We do hope that you share many years of joy and love together! Please keep in touch and we thank you for giving her such a wonderful loving home.
Donnie is an incredible pleasure to work with. My wife and I highly recommend Donnie at Old North State Kennels. From the first interaction to being very prompt on answering questions after we had picked up Brooks. We had a really good feeling right away when we talked to Donnie about two weeks before picking up our puppy. Not only was Donnie a pleasure to work with, he is very knowledgeable on labs in general and very helpful with anything you may need on tips and tricks to raising a puppy. Our little guy was clearly raised right for the first few weeks of his life because he is playful all the while being snuggly and cuddly. If you are looking to get a puppy from a breeder, Donnie is the guy to go to. Thank you Donnie for giving us the opportunity to get our puppy and thank you for being ethical and caring breeders. We truly appreciate and are thankful to be able to work with you.
Thank you so much for the kind words and great review. We do strive to produce healthy, happy puppies and we love to hear that you both are so happy with "Brooks". He is a lucky boy to be an addition to your new family! I know that he will be spoiled rotten and have a great life! Please keep us updated and thank you for providing him a fantastic home!
Thor (white male) turned a year old in January. Purchased him as a hunting dog and he has been outstanding. Great demeanor, great retrieving drive, strong swimmer, obedient, a fast learner, and absolutely loves feathers in his mouth. All that and he looks like he should be on a DU print. If you are looking a hunting dog, that is beautiful, smart and doesn't act like its on crack give these guys a call.
Thank you so much for the review. We really do like to hear when our puppies get to enjoy the outdoors and esp waterfowl hunting. Labs are such a special breed that you can take out of the house and bird hunt and return that night after a bath and back on the couch with you watching tv! Thank you again for giving him an active lifestyle. Please keep us updated on his hunting progress!
We picked up Emily a little over a week ago. In this time frame she has learned "NO", a solid sit, whines if she needs to go out to potty, sleeps in her crate next to our bed with only getting up once per night to potty and has learned to live with 2 Border Collies and a Chocolate Lab. Her personality is amazing and we are head over heels in love with her. Donnie has been a pleasure to work with and we will recommend his breeding kennel to everyone.
Thank you so much for the review and we are so happy to hear that you are happy with Emily and that she is so well received by the entire "family". We hope that you will keep us updated with her growth and we do wish you all many years of happiness together! Thank you for providing her a loving home and spoiling her!
We picked up Angus about a week ago. He was the only black pup in the litter, he is going to be a big boy. He is so healthy and smart. Our whole family is completely in love with him. He is fiesty and spunky but also so loving and a little cuddle bug. Our dealings with ONSK, from the very first contact has been an absolute pleasure. Great people raising awesome dogs. Thanks for all the updates and pictures while we were waiting for our little guy. Thank you for being ethical breeders. You made our finding this great pup such a easy process.
Thank you so much for the kind words on your review. Angus is an absolutely handsome boy and we know he will that he will bring you many years of love and joy. Thank you for placing your trust in us to get Angus and we are glad that you and your family are so happy with him. Please keep in touch with us on Angus's growth and progressand we thank you again. Please take care!
