Charlie is the best dog in the world! I’ve had many pups in the past but nothing like this.
We’ve had him for two and a half weeks and he is already trained very well. Taught him how to sit in two days, potty trained in four days( haven’t had an accident since!) he already rings a bell to go out! He learned that in a day. Nothing I’ve ever seen before. Shakes a paw, stays to wait for his food, lay down, speaks, working on rollovers and he’s almost there. Walks on a leash very well and stops and sits on my left when I stop or ask!!! We couldn’t be more happy. Instant part of our family. Such a loving personality.

I just wanted to send you an update. Evey has been so amazing and so well behaved. I have never had such an amazingly easy puppy, so thank you [😊] Her trainer and vet are all in love with her as well. Everyone we meet loves her and asks where we got her, I always let them know and tell them you still have a few puppies available right now. She has only had a few accidents in the house, which is far better than I expected. She goes almost everywhere with me, so now she follows me around everywhere even in the house (which I have to admit I love lol). She goes with us to JiuJitsu practice (6 days a week), in every store that allows dogs and to all our family members houses (including my grandfather’s at an old age home). Our female dog has taken to her like she is her baby and is always watching out for her, our male was just excited to have another play buddy. If our zoning allowed 4 dogs I would be getting another on in a heartbeat she truly is just great. I’ve attached a few pictures for you.

I just wanted to let you know what an incredible little puppy Gus is. I have taken him twice to the lake now…..both times in the little borrowed crate (which looks like it will be too small for the next trip) and both times he has been the perfectly behaved little gentleman. I have a small seat belt attachment which I bought from Wal-Mart for about $11 and I attach Gus to that using a harness for trips to Uncle Vet etc. and he also sits down and then lies down when wearing that. I don't know if you can truly comprehend what this means to us? It is like manna from heaven!!!
He is just such a self- contained little guy as well as loving people. I know I am doing a better job as I have read 2 Cesar Millan books (one twice!) so I can't only say it is the dog but I truly believe that your breeding has a large role to play.
Anyway…this has been like a therapy session…thanks for listening J.
And thanks for the incredible little darling Gus you picked for us.
Take care…..I would recommend your puppies to anyone and everyone!

Just wanted to tell you how wonderfully Gus is progressing.
At about 91/2 months we cut back on his toys, thinking they were winding him up. We noticed a marked calmness in his behavior after that. From then on, he seemed to mature every week….. so quickly. We have slowly been reintroducing items around the house like the toilet roll back in its holder, mats back on the floor etc. and most of these items have been left alone. Sure, we still have to be a step ahead, like I had to ditch the Easywalk for the Halti to stop pulling on walks but he took to it with no fuss. He even wears Sally's old fleece jacket sometimes and has never objected!
But not only is he maturing quickly, he is so lovable and loving! I have never had such a loving dog. He licks me in my mouth if he can, he lies so he touches us (mostly ON us), and last night Craig commented :"No wonder they are called Lovable Labs!"
This time last year both Craig and I were so sad and didn't really celebrate my birthday or Christmas. This year is so different due to Gus! I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for breeding such a superb dog! You have changed our lives and made them so much happier!!!!!!
Thank you Carina.
Hope you too have a truly wonderful Christmas season.

The absolute best Lab ever!!! Such sweetness and oh so smart. I loved my other dogs and was heart broken when they passed after 13 years. Sophie from Lovable Labs came into my life just a few months after we said goodbye to Trixie. Sophie and I have such a special bond. It is like she knew she was sent for me. My husband says he has never seen anything like it. Lovable Labs is amazing. Carina's pups are the best. You can see the difference between a regular Lab and a Lovable Lab. No joke. We were stopped once by a gentleman who asked us "Is that a Lovable Lab? Can spot her dogs anywhere, beautiful!" I want to spoil my sweet Sophie or I would take another pup in a heartbeat!
Just wanted to send a few pics and a 5 mo update. We are amazed with this puppy. She learns so quickly and is an incredibly calm
dog for a 5 (almost 6) mo. old. She is everything you promised and more.
She loves the ocean and the forest, both of which we are at daily! She
housetrained very easily and sleeps peacefully her crate. She is
intelligent, calm and incredibly beautiful.
She uses her paws like hands, and retrieves her ball as long as we throw
it. She is totally devoted to us as we are to her, but she has her own
mind, and thinks about things! I swear she understands more than simple
commands. We are very happy with the pet food you recommended, and they
have now come out with a puppy formula! We are doing training for her to
be a therapy dog in our school district as she comes to work with me.
Stella has brought so much joy back into our home and our lives.
Thank you for such an incredible pup.

Carina, I must praise you for the outstanding work and training you do to raise these puppies.
It is so obvious to see that you truly raise them with your heart. I'm telling you, our puppy came to us trained.. I was prepared to handle many many issues - this puppy is such a darling.. sweet boy, happy, content, no anxiety, beyond beautiful, lovely personality.. I thought he may have separation issues, but he seems to be adjusting very well. He seems to trust and love us, so there has been no problems.
He is so beautiful and smart .... learning quickly .... he’s fitting in right from day one !... absolutely in love with him!!!!! Everyone is over the moon over him after seeing him !!! Can’t thank you enough for him .... he’s gonna have a loved , happy long life ! I’ll send pics as he gets bigger ! He is worth every penny, you can’t really put a price on your family…. best money spent in a long time …LOL!

First snowfall and had a ball. Went to the vet and behaved extremely well. Vet wrote on her report very healthy puppy. He asked for TLC information. She has been a very keen student. She is excellent with word recognition. She is sitting , staying , coming and going down on command. I have her searching for her food and she finds it easily outdoors or in. When I say do you want to play the game she immediately heads for the door and waits on the other side until I tell her to search. She is 27 lbs and gaining. She is very keen on our daily woods walk. Picks up on all previous routes. She plows through thick underbrush like a tank. She is every thing we wanted . She really is a tribute to you and your breeding program.
Thanks again , Donnie and Karen

I have been thinking about sending you another update but have been busy. You are the best person to share all about River. Who knows him better :)
We are all very happy with River. He is growing and learning so well. I have to say that he is very easy to train. We have a good trainer who gives us great support. River meets with him every week. He picks up new tricks so fast that we don't need to do much at home. He just remembers what he has learned. River is still a very calm boy. He always stay calm when other dogs are barking. He loves everybody. He is our big teddy bear!
Kids also learn how to get along with a puppy. I can't tell you how happy I am to see River and my children grow together and get to know each other!
River had his last set of shots yesterday...yay! He will soon be fully Immuned. Our vet said that he is a very healthy puppy. River is now 34.4 lbs. his weight doubled in 8 weeks!
River is pretty much potty trained now. The puppy nip has improved tremendously! Now he enjoys chewing his toys and rawhides or bully sticks way better than our hands :D
I have been meeting and talking with more dog owners these days. Many of them adopted their dogs from kennels. However, I was quite shocked when they told me that they brought their puppy home when it was as young as three weeks old. They went through lots of problems in the first few months and there were many behavioural issues. When I heard of those stories, I was so grateful that we found a great breeder! Thank you again for your excellent puppy! Like the quote from your website, River did make our life complete! We can't ask for more :)
He is now sleeping beside my feet. I just can't take that smile off my face when he is with me :)
Will share more pictures with you later!
Regards to your family,
Jane and Shelby So
Just wanna share a picture with you. Our handsome boy is three months old now!
River has settled down very well with our family routine and gets along well with everyone. I walk him early every morning and he's doing an excellent job!
Can't wait till his shots are done so we can explore more places and meet with more dogs!
