Welcome to, dba, Thunder Labradors. Wisconsin License # 267334-DS. We started raising Labradors in 1994. The kennel is owned and operated by Richard and Mirella Spike. We are experienced chocolate, yellow and black Lab breeders in southern Wisconsin. Our kennel is located at W9167 State Road 106 in the small village of Busseyville, WI. We are 30 minutes southeast of Madison, WI, one hour west of Milwaukee, WI, and 3 hours southeast of LaCrosse, WI. We are 50 minutes from Rockford, IL, and 1 hour 50 minutes from O'Hare in Chicago, IL.

All of our breeding dogs, whether they are chocolate, yellow or black, are AKC registered and hip, elbow and eye screened. All Labrador pups come with a hip, elbow, heart and eye guarantee, have dewclaws removed and are up to date on wormings and age appropriate vaccinations. We also guarantee that your puppy will not be affected by EIC and CNM. These are two disorders that you want no part of. If you buy your Lab from us, no worries. We test our dogs and there is no way genetically possible for you to buy an affected pup from us. If you consider buying elsewhere, be sure to ask about these two somewhat prevalent disorders.

Something that separates us from most other Labrador breeders, is the amount of time we spend socializing our puppies. All our pups are exposed to Early Neurological Stimulation. (ENS) An Internet search will give you more details about ENS. Use canine ENS for your search term. This comprehensive socialization program builds confident dogs who adapt easily to new situations. After strong pedigrees and health certificates, it is "TIME INVESTED" that makes a quality pup.

As professional breeders, we have been inspected by the American Kennel Club several times and we are always in "substantial compliance" with all AKC rules and regulations regarding the care of our dogs. The very first testimonial on the TESTIMONIAL page is from a State of Wisconsin Inspector. You may visit our kennel any time with an appointment. We suggest you do not wear sandals, flip flops or anything that exposes your toes. Your toes and puppy teeth do not mix well. As time permits, we post photos about every two weeks of our litters.

You can buy a Thunder Labrador with confidence because we are experienced Lab breeders that deliver quality puppy care. References are available upon request. We take all the precautions known to modern veterinary medicine in order to nurture a healthy, social, trainable Lab puppy.

Please be prepared to answer a few questions if you are interested in purchasing a Thunder Labrador. State and county sales tax is added to the price of all puppies.

There is a $100 WI Dog Law fee on all pups sold to offset the expenses incurred while complying with the State of Wisconsin Dog Licensing Law. We passed our first State Inspection on August 17, 2011, and have passed yearly inspections since.

What is the process
to buy a puppy?
View our pages and if you like what you see, email or call and tell us. Tell us if you have raised a puppy before so you would know what you are getting into. Picks go in the order of deposits received. Pups are base priced at 1250. With state and county sales tax, WI Dog Law fee, bag of food, microchip, vet health certificate, first vaccine, etc., your total is 1545. Customer pays shipping, if needed.

Pups may be more if we pay a stud fee for a "Big Dog". (NFC, NAFC, FC AFC, FC, etc.) We ship anywhere within the continental USA and Alaska. We have pups living in more than thirty of the United States.


Click on the silver buttons above to link to our puppy pages for Lab puppy information. There are puppy page links at the bottom of this page also. As you read about all the titled ancestors of the puppies, keep in mind that this means you will get a smart, trainable Lab puppy! Invest some consistent training time with your Labrador and he or she will perform and become a great companion. We will not own a dog unless he/she is social and healthy with the certifications to prove it. All our dogs carry high quality pedigrees too.

Equally as important as a pup's ancestry, is the socialization he or she receives. Our socialization program is second to none. All of our puppies go through an Early Neurological Stimulation Program. (ENS) See our Testimonial Page and see what past customers have said about our Labrador pups. Our "PUPPY PLAYLAND" allows for socialization and motor skill development. Pups are handled daily.

And, all Thunder Labrador puppies come with a hip, elbow, heart and eye guarantee. We also guarantee that your Lab pup will not be affected by EIC or CNM. We have a great track record for producing healthy dogs.
