It was a pleasure working with Michael to get our new puppy!! There are so many dishonest people/breeders out there finding silver and Charcoal was a blessing! The whole experience was relaxed and easy. Delivery right to our door Dec 23rd with our beautiful little girl. We couldn’t be happier and more excited to love her and see her grow. Many years of love and companionship ahead!! If we decide on a second Silver & Charcoal is the only breeder for us!! Thank you again for your time and such a beautiful puppy it’s clear you love what you do and it shows is our little Emma Rose!!

Our silver pup Charlie

We had a great experience for the second time getting a lab pup from Silver and Charcoal Kennels! Michael is so easy to work with and keeps you up to date on how the puppies are doing. We are very pleased with our new silver boy. He has learned so many commands in a short period of time! You can’t go wrong with Silver and Charcoal Kennels!

10/10 RECOMMEND!!!

Very pleased with silver and charcoal Kennels! Was a little hesitant at first as one of my friends had a bad experience with a breeder, but Michael was very precessional and kind! He was in constant communication with me and made the process so easy! Now, im enjoying my puppy Koda who is very energetic, smart, and is bringing me and my family lots of joy! Definitely recommend getting a pup from Michael.

We are so glad you chose us for your new baby. We would love to see pictures. Thank you again.

Charcoal Charlotte????

Silver and Charcoal Kennels did not disappoint when helping us when we were looking for a charcoal female to add to our growing dog community. I contacted the kennel interested in finding a female charcoal and he was able to accommodate our request. Making the deposit was easy, as well as updates on when Charlotte was born and how we would get her sent to us in Washington State. Charlotte is one smart dog and you can tell that hunting is in her genes. She does great with our other labs and has become an integral part of our Porter family. We are happy with our choice to pick a dog from silver and charcoal kennels even though the distance was substantial. She was taken care and delivered to us with the utmost care. Thank you so much for all your help. We definitely will remember to use you again when continuing to grow our labrador family.

Thank you for choosing us to get you a puppy. We would love to see pictures as she grows up.

Loving our pup!

My fiancée and I looked for a trustworthy and caring breeder for a year until we found Michael Lary! Michael was quick and responsive, even after hours. He was patient and listened to what we wanted in a pup. He sent us pictures and videos and kept us updated on how the pups were doing. Delivery of our boy was smooth and seamless. Our pup, Astro, is now a healthy and happy 4 month old. Everyone is always so impressed to see how great our boy's temperament is and his beautiful silver coat. He has been such a delight to train and grow with. Thank you Michael and your team for this amazing addition to our family! We feel so blessed to call him our own.

We really appreciate your kind words. We would love to see pictures as Astro grows up.

Our sweet silver baby Addie Mae

Brought home our Addie Mae today! Had a great experience with Michael and his family. Already in in “puppy” love with her temperament and personality!

It’s hard to know who you can trust these days. Especially, a business found on the internet in another state. But, after doing months of research, reading years of reviews and several conversations with Michael we decided to buy from Silver and Charcoal Kennels. Highly recommend placing your trust in them! Can’t say thank you enough.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so glad you chose us. We hope you enjoy Addie Mae for many years.

Very happy

I inquired about a pup in May 2020. The kindness and responsiveness from the owner was phenomenal! We spoke and I told him what I wanted in a lab and he gave me 2 choices he felt would fit the part. He nailed it. I call my silver lab Sir Kirby and the blue collar puppy. The deliver was so easy and I am so grateful for the love and care of the parents to my Sir Kirby. Great addition to my family and he is now 7 months old with the best personality and so fun to have by my side. Forever Grateful! No health issues and easy to train.

Thank you so much! We hope you enjoy your new puppy for many years.

The best pups ever!

We have been blessed with two pups from Silver and Charcoal! Our second silver lab, Roux❤️???? is healthy, spirited, and has a wonderful disposition, just like her aunt Dixie! Micheal has the biggest heart and you can truly tell he loves what he does and is great at it! We can’t say enough good things about them and the dogs he breeds are no doubt great hunting dogs, obedient and intelligent.... but they certainly love to lay in a lap(regardless of size!)
Thank you so much to Silver and Charcoal kennels for our fur babies!

Thank you. We hope you enjoy your new puppy for many years.

puppy recently purchased

My older daughter left for college which left my younger daughter pining for a lab which she always wanted. We searched in NY for lab breeders and found none that had silver labs which is what we wanted.
I was lucky enough to find Michael and Nickis website silver and charcoal kennels. From there the rest was history. I called Michael he was very honest,genuine and relatable. I still waited and searched for a local breeder and found myself drawn back to Michael because of his expertise in the industry and honesty. His website is exactly what i purchased. i purchased a silver male pup and had it delivered via truck mid january. His drivers were even professional and friendly. This pup is the best thing thats happened to my family over this pandemic. He is well behaved, smart, very energetic, was easy to toilet train where he goes to door when he has to go bathroom. He fetches balls and brings back sits when told and constantly plays with the family. He is good with family friends and neighbors and is slowly getting used to other dogs. His vet visit went well.
I believe this addition to my family was a great decision and will bring us many happy memories to come. After hearing over the pandemic about scam breeders on the internet i feel blessed to have met Michael and all that he had to offer. He was there for me everytime i reached out to him. To this day i am still in touch with Michael and he has always returned my calls re: the dog.
I cannot think of a more honest and genuine breeder who really cares about his pups.


Thank you so much. We really appreciate you. We hope you enjoy your new puppy for many years.

Perfect silver pup!

Absolutely beautiful silver lab! Our pup is a natural retriever and was bringing back toys by her 10th week. She’s got a great spirit and loves playing in the snow with no aversion to the cold. Michael’s quick responsiveness and helpful demeanor made it a pleasure to do business with him. He even went the extra mile to ensure we got our puppy all the way to Reno before Christmas! Great guy, great dog, couldn’t be happier!

Thank you so much for choosing us to get your fur baby. We hope you enjoy her for many years.

Our sweet girl, Nola

We are so happy with our sweet silver girl Nola. She is so smart and beautiful too. I looked near and far for a silver lab puppy. Even Silver and Charcoal Kennels was the furthest from us it was definitely worth the long drive. I am very happy with our whole experience. Michael was always quick to respond and patient with all of my questions. My children were excited for the puppy and had a hard time waiting. We asked Michael if he could send a few pictures or video. Soon after our request he sent us a beautiful video. Our children were thrilled! When we picked up Nola a few weeks ago, Michael had all of the paperwork in order and spent time with us answering questions. Nola has a great personality and enjoyed meeting the entire family that came to visit for the holidays. We are extremely happy with Nola -- she is a wonderful puppy. Michael was easy to work with, very knowledgeable, and confident in the quality of his dogs. We highly recommend Silver & Charcoal Kennels. Michael will take good care of you!

Thank you so much! We hope you enjoy her for many years.

Silver female puppy Miss Storm

We picked up our silver female pup 3 weeks ago. Drove down from Indiana just to get her. I had been eyeing Silver and Charcoal Kennels since January of 2019. I searched for breeders closer to my home state but was drawn back to Silver and Charcoal Kennels each time. Michael was extremely helpful and very responsive. He also offers delivery via his own drivers. We named our pup Storm after her dad. I still cannot believe how smart she is. Storm is about 10 weeks old now. She loves people and other animals. We received her health records upon arrival and AKC papers. Her first vet check up at home went perfectly. Michael checked in with us to see how are pup was doing. If we ever have a question they are available to talk. I highly recommend Silver and Charcoal Kennels. Down the road if I decide to get another Lab it will be from Michael and Nikki. Thank you for our puppy! She has added so much to our lives 🙂

Silver Lab-

Just a quick review to give 10 stars to Mike and Nikki at Silver and Charcoal kennels! Never in my life, did I expect to purchase such a perfect companion. What a great Birthday present! I would do business without hesitation again and again with this amazing couple! They are amazing breeders who put their entire heart and soul into breeding the healthiest pups out there! They are willing to answer any and all questions no matter what day or night. They are the most devoted team of breeders one could ever meet! If you are interested in a healthy, happy pup, who comes completely crate trained, these pups are amazing! It took exactly "one" day to train him, and I believe he had one accident. He loves the car, as we bring him everywhere! Everywhere we go, we get compliments on how incredibly "handsome" he is with his unique Silver coat and beautiful blue-green eyes! If you are interested in purchasing a lab puppy, DO NOT HESITATE to invest in a puppy from"Silver and Charcoal Kennels!" These are honest, talented, caring folks, who are willing to make good on all they profess. I am just sorry I didn't do it sooner, and if I was a bit younger, I would purchase an additional Silver Lab to serve as a companion to my present baby boy! Our dog is so talented, as he rings the bell to go out, he has become very athletic and dexterous, and such a "fun" great breed! I cannot write enough "positive" comments about these fabulous breeders, as they truly are "THE BEST OUT THERE!" Down to Roy, our transporter, everything went as planned, what I should have realized is how large Blu's paws were, as we are moving into a larger house, to make room for this big boy! In August when we got him, he was 17 pounds, and he swiftly became a favorite of our hometown veterinarian, as he gained a healthy 10 pounds a month, and is somewhere around 84 pounds of Pure Love! Thank you, Thank you for the wonderful service you perform, and to all dog lovers out there, DO NOT HESITATE to do business with this wonderful organization! I am sorry I didn't get him sooner, as he has changed my life and brought my husband and I such joy and happiness. Rest assured he is treated like one of our children, and only receives the best of care, and enough love that has created an unbreakable bond! Blu doesn't leave my side, he is happy to follow me throughout our home as we are seriously in the process of building a new home with enough land for him to run and play! Thanks again to two of our favorite breeders, as you certainly put your heart and soul, and God's love and direction in every litter you produce! May God continue to richly bless you, as you have blessed and changed our life with our beautiful boy "BLU". We couldn't ask for a better experience or a better dog! You are amazing people, who deserve so much happiness, for what you do for others! We LOVE our SILVER LAB, as he is perfect in every way! Thanks to "Silver and Charcoal Kennels... for being the "Top Notch breeders they are today! We recommend you highly, and pray for your health and happiness during these tough times! May all your puppies be healthy and happy!

Thank you so much for your kind words. We truly hope you enjoy Blu for many years. We would love to see pictures of him from time to time. Thanks again.

Love our Silver pup

We picked up our new male silver puppy 3 weeks ago and he has quickly won our hearts. He’s the sweetest thing and so stinking smart. He already does several tricks like sit, roll over, lay down, shake, and more. He’s been a wonderful addition to our 2 miniature dachshund family members. We get compliments from everyone he meets about what a beautiful dog he is and we couldn’t agree more. Michael was great to work with and made the process very simple. We would definitely recommend Silver and Charcoal Kennels as THE place to get the new lab your family is looking for.

Thank you for choosing us. We hope you enjoy your new puppy for many years. Please keep us posted on his growth with pictures. We love to see our puppies grow.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy your dog for many years.

I’m in love!

I wish I could rate them 100/5 stars! I can not put into words how much I love my pup from silver and charcoal kennels! He has the sweetest little personality and has been so easy to train!

So happy with Silver and Charcoal Kennels

We are so happy with Gracie, our beautiful new silver. Through the whole process Michael was incredibly responsive, helpful, and friendly. We were very pleased with everything and couldn’t recommend Michael any more if you’re considering a new pup!!

Thank you. Keep us posted with pictures.

Top quality
They have the best labs. This is the only kennel I will ever buy a lab from. Michael is easy to work with and is very knowledgeable.

The wait was well worth it.
Our MaeBelle (silver lab) is 8 weeks old, full of energy, personality, and adjusted extremely well. On her first vet visit, the first words the vet said about her “y’all have a really good one”. Michael is very responsive, and takes pride in his dogs/puppies/kennels.
Randy Sabrina C – October 2017

She’s a beauty
A+++ we have had a wonderful experience from all the personal contact, videos, pictures and to the shipment of our little gal! She is beautiful, health and happy all tribute to her breeders. Because of the wonderful job you guys did she blends perfectly with our family. Not a least bit shy in fact she already rules the roost with my two full grown lab males. Thank you again!

Lindseys’s First Silver Midnight Ryder
Michael was very informative from start to finish. He answered all of our questions and responded very quickly. We chose a silver lab from Duke and Abigail. We picked up Ryder, March 22nd, weighing 8 lbs. Now, he weighs 14lb. He’s absolutely beautiful and a bundle of joy! We love him! Steve & Elisha Lindsey
Elisha L – April 2017

You have done a great job with your site and keeping me informed. Can’t really say much about the puppy because I haven’t received mine yet.

Our Sweet Molly

Silver lab purchased last year……..Maggie
Had no problems with the kennel. I was kept up to date during the purchase. We got caught in the Delta mix-up and the day the puppy was to be shipped, it was a no-go which meant a day to day getting the right flight, but finally all came together and there she was. If it bothered her to travel, she didn’t show it and the next day she went in the lake and swam around. No problem house breaking. She is close to 100 lbs., large boned and beautiful, loves everyone, expects everyone to feel the same about her. trying to break her of being too friendly and wanting to be the center of attention should anyone come to visit.. Biggest complaint….chewing , loves to chew. We try to get her toys that are hard to tear apart. she is a happy dog, loves life. She has been spayed and shots, etc., are up to date. Beautiful dog with pretty greenish eyes.

We are very happy with Maggie. She has a great personalty and is very lovable. We will be looking to purchase another down the road and will be contacting this breeder first. This breeder cares about the dogs and it shows with the connection they have with their puppies. Thanks Debra Perry
Debra P. – April 2017

My girlfriend wanted a lab puppy and I had heard about it for nearly a year straight. I found Silver and Charcoal Kennels online and contacted them about a white lab male puppy we subsequently named “Jackson”. Jackson has been growing like a weed since we drove the nearly 7 hours from Atlanta to pick him up, and we couldn’t be happier with him! Jackson loves to play and snuggle us both alike, and is a very handsome boy. Everyone at Silver and charcoal kennels wee had the pleasure of talking to were helpful and professional! Great place for a family or lone wolf to get their forever friend.
David – April 2017

Perfect dog
I love my polar white lab I love the fact that he acts a little aggressive when people pull up and barks it’s not typical to come from a Labrador but is soon as they get out and they see that we talk he’s loving all up on them he is hardheaded but a very quick smart learner the underground fence does not work at all he is six months old . And thinks he’s the size of a puppy still we love him with all our heart and wouldn’t mind getting him a girlfriend he is even starting to come in the house now and he leaves our docs alone imagine that and our turkeys alone but he does like to dig holes . But we are working on that I will be interested in the future and getting another one thank you

Best Silver Lab Kennel
There are several point I would like to make about our positive experience. 1.) Owners are wonderful to work with and are knowledgeable and provides supplies when we got our Fur Baby (Blue). 2.) Blue is the BEST dog. He trained very easy, is not even a year old yet and has the best temperament. Our 4 year old climbs all over him and he let him. he doesn’t leave our side or our yard. He is a puppy and eats a lot of plants but he has not torn up anything other than plants. 3.) I would recommend Silver & Charcoal Kennels to others and we would love purchase more dogs in the future. Sincerely, Emliy
Emily B – April 2017

Everything was super professional and we couldn’t be any happier with our beloved Luca! He’s an energetic healthy goof ball and we adore him!
