About Us

Welcome to WisconsinLabradors.com, 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. Busseyville is in between Edgerton and Fort Atkinson on State Road 106. 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. We are just five minutes off Interstate 90 at Exit 160.

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, shoulder, heart and eye guarantee. They 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, CNM, OCD, PRA, CY, HNPK, DM, and/or HUU. These are 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 disorders and their guarantees.

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 of our litters about every two weeks.

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.
