Blackthorn Home Page

Welcome to Blackthorn Labradors.  We are located just south of Olympia, the capital of Washington which is known as the "Evergreen" state.  We have been busy over the last 50+ years showing, training, hunting, obedience trialing, breeding, judging and loving our Labradors.  Being the only Charter Member still active in the Rose City Labrador Retriever Club, I have held almost every position in the RCLRC, and also enjoy being a member of the Puget Sound Labrador Retriever Association and the National Labrador Retriever Club, Inc.

All of our breeding program today is based on our legendary Multi Best In Specialty Show Am. Can. Ch. Monarch's Black Arrogance, CD, WC, who was a very special dog of notable influence ... not only in our breeding program, but in breeding programs of numerous others around the world.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and the opportunity to meet our dogs, and to take a peek at our gardens along the way.
