We are very happy with our experience at Sooner Labs. We had planned on getting one puppy for our college age daughter,... but were so impressed we decided to get another for ourselves. Previously we have only purchased our other dogs from nationally recognized breeders where the pet had to be flown to us. In our search for a reputable and responsible Labrador Breeder we were thrilled to find one within driving distance. Sooner Labs met and exceed all of our expectations. Their facility is clean, well run, with liters responsibly chosen to ensure great temperament and breed conformance. There is great communication with the owners that clearly love what they are doing and run their business with down home family values. You won't be disappointed.read more
We brought our puppy home a few days ago and we couldn’t not have asked for a better puppy or experience. Our little... boy is the perfect addition to our family. He is so sweet and so calm and so well behaved even at 7 weeks old. Destry was amazing to work with. He is very knowledgeable was able to answer all our questions and even checks in to make sure the puppy is adjusting well. They are extremely responsible breeders who love and care for each of their pups. 10/10 would recommend and would never get another dog that wasn’t a Sooner lab.read more

He has been an incredible addition for our family and I have never seen our kids happier!read more
We have two beautiful dogs from Sooner Labs and could not be happier with every detail. We bought the dogs three years... apart, so it’s tried and true as far as we are concerned. Both dogs are female chocolates and both are beyond family/people friendly, both are extremely athletic and smart. They love our cat. Best family dogs out there. Destry, the owner, has been helpful and interested in his pups and always available if we had any questions.read more

Sooner Labs was recommended to us after we called a local breeder who did not have any puppies for sale at that time. ...
Destry was great to work with as we made arrangements to purchase and pick up our new puppy. It was easy to see how much he cared about his puppies through our conversations prior to purchasing our puppy and with his follow up phone call to see how she was doing and willingness to answer any questions we might have.
Our Ruby is now seven months old. We have had multiple family members and friends comment on her gentle and loving demeanor. She is a favorite with our grandchildren.
She is smart, easy to train, and very loving. Ruby is the best! I would give her 10 stars if I could.read more
We took our yellow lab, The Dude, home from Sooner Labs the first part of November and he has stolen our hearts. Very... healthy, very happy, very smart and, surprisingly, laid back for a puppy. Just the way we like him. Such a good-looking boy - We think we got the best one!read more
My experience with Sooner Labs was very positive. Destry is a family man, very knowledgeable, experienced and easy to... work with. The well manicured acreage was also very pleasing to the eye with ponds and bridges, inferring a safe and pleasant environment for the pups to be raised. I ended up with a female, English yellow lab, and she is such a joy. I am pleased to report that she is in top health and looks outstanding and she is a very happy, and loving lab. My daughter and I could not be happier with our decision to work with Sooner Labs.read more
We had a great experience. We received pics and updates during our 5 week long wait for the puppy to be ready to come... home. And, all of my questions were answered with great patience. This is one amazing pup!read more
My husband and I had the best experience with Destry and Sooner Labs. It’s been almost 10 years since my black lab... passed so this puppy has been a long time coming. He was so worth the wait! Destry was so informative and helpful throughout this whole process! The quality of puppy my husband and I received is constantly exceeding our expectations. He is everything we hoped he would be and more. I had high expectations after my first Labrador and did my research on breeders and I am so thrilled to have found them. If my husband will let me, we will be back for another one! Thank you for trusting us with one of your beautiful puppies!read more
We picked up our chocolate girl Zoey about a week ago and she’s the absolute best, most mellow puppy I’ve ever met. I... knew English labs were supposed to have calmer temperaments than American labs, but she really is such a calm, attentive pup. My 10 year old and 5 year old are just in love.
We reserved our girl about 6 months ago and Destry has been awesome about answering all of my questions and keeping us informed every step of the way. He was also very flexible with us when we were arranging taking time off to be able to begin the training process and offered to keep her a couple of weeks extra until we could take her.
The Sooner Labs property is beautiful with lots of land all of their dogs are well taken care of. I highly recommend Sooner Labs and will send anyone looking for a new fur family member their way!read more
Couldn’t be more pleased with the English Yellow I got here. Lacey is as smart a dog as I’ve ever had. Actually, the... smartest. She was house trained inside of a week. I got her initially as a bird dog to hunt upland birds and ducks. She was also desired to be a part of our little family, and will always be an inside family dog.
At just 4 months she was sniffing out Pheasant wings in very thick brush. Pups in the past have always needed to be tied nearby as we shot clays to get any sketch out of their systems regarding gunfire. She never flinched. I would recommend Sooner Labs to anyone who is after the best friend and companion they’ve ever had. Heck, I may even take another. Whatcha got Destry!?read more
In looking for an English Labrador breeder, I did a lot of research and chose Sooner Labs because of the great... selection of "pup parents" and the significant socialization the puppies get. Destry was terrific about answering all my questions, for months, and helping me choose the best litter for my needs. I was able to temperament test the males from the litter I chose, and pick just the right puppy; who will begin training to become my service dog, as my current one is retiring. I highly recommend Sooner Labs, and feel confident in the quality of pups Destry Newman's breeding program creates!
I am so blessed to have my Riley-pup!read more
We couldn't be happier with our newest addition Diesel (black male). We have a chocolate lab (male) and a yellow lab... (female) and this was by far the best experience in purchasing a Lab puppy. Every question and concern I had was always answered immediately and I had a lot of questions! We had 12 hours of drive time picking Diesel up and we will definitely do it again when the time comes for another. I highly recommend Sooner Labs to anyone looking for a English Lab.read more
We looked and looked and looked for the "right" lab. Enter "Sooner Labs on my fb page and the following began. ... Numerous digs flashed thru my feed and along happens Capo and as luck would have it he was back as sadly for the other family they couldnt take him. I inquired about him and my questions were answered promptly. Reserved him and made plans for the next day to pick him up. 5+ hours away we picked up our new baby, the process was smooth and fast and all my questions were answered. Our new child is at his new home, he's happy and seems to love the attention he gets. I would definitely buy again from Sooner Labs.read more

He has such a great spunky personality and is quite clever! We are just so in love with him. We loved the wonderful assistance we received from Sooner Labs and will recommend them to anyone looking for a beautiful lab. Thanks so much to you Sooner Labs..................read more
“Augustus”, now Niko Augustus, joined our family a few weeks ago. He is healthy, happy and socially adjusted quickly to... have two “teen” siblings greet him (one with momma instincts and one less thrilled brother). He was a surprise for my adult disabled son who was shocked to see a live puppy instead of getting canned goods from a friend who was also traveling to visit at the same time. Niko is growing like a weed and has quite the appetite. This week he decided the water dish is his pool so we got him a life vest and are in the process of teaching him water safety in the pool. Sooner Labs are top notch and the breeder is responsible, honest and cares where his fur babies will end up. I highly recommend.read more
We love our new lab, and we are grateful for the whole experience!
We first made contact with Destry, through a... private message on social media. He called us back right away, and explained breeding processes, including medical tests. He also explained how adoption worked. We went out to visit a few days later, and picked a puppy.
Several days before taking her home, we went out to see her again. Family was very accommodating both times, and was available to answer any questions.
Highly recommend!read more
Sooner Labs was recommended to us by a local breeder. From the first phone call, they did an excellent job... communicating about the upcoming litter. Once the puppies were born, they sent picture updates regularly and answered questions promptly. Even though they are a six hour drive from our home they met us halfway and made coordinating the pickup date easy. Our puppy is extraordinarily cute, affectionate and our kids fell in love with her immediately. The owners are very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process making the entire experience very positive. We would highly recommend this breeder!read more
We are absolutely thrilled with our new puppy! She handled the 3 hour plus drive home like a pro! She's beautiful,... and with such a wonderful personality. She's getting along wonderfully with our 3 cats already, as well. Would highly recommend Sooner Labs to anyone looking for a reputable breeder. Great people, warm, inviting, and professional.read more
I was looking for an English lab breeder in Oklahoma while I was stationed here. Fortunately I stumbled across sooner... labs online. The adoption process was simple and easy. The owner seems like a great guy. I like that they post updated pictures of the pups every few weeks on the website. It has been a few months since we brought Pearl home and we are loving every minute of it. She's such a sweet girl with an amazing temperament.read more
Great breeder! We could not be happier with the newest member of our family. Our new puppy fit in immediately with our... kids, cats and other black lab. Great service and great puppy! Thank you Sooner Labs.read more
My friendship with Sooner Labs has been amazing through the years. We purchased our chocolate lab Angus 3 years ago... after hearing about the breeder through a friend. Communication has always been excellent, whenever we have a question (even 3 years after) Destry is always quick to answer. I've never had a worry or concern. Angus has always been healthy; the puppies are well socialized, clean, and well loved before finding their forever homes. We are extremely happy we got our lab from Sooner Labs; we knew what we were getting, he educated us on the testing, bloodlines, and health of the puppies. He made sure we knew exactly what we were getting before we made any decisions. Would definitely recommend!read more
Destry was so easy to work with! He responded to messages very quickly, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and... professional. We absolutely LOVE our new puppy! He's a great looking dog and seems to be very smart and easy to train. We're still working on the training, obviously, but we are very impressed with Sooner Labs and will be getting our next Lab from them!!!!read more
Purchasing a dog is so stressful because it's such a huge commitment, but Sooner Labs made it very easy. I had no... problems, and all my questions were answered. I knew I was getting a quality puppy because of all the testing they do. Highly recommend if you're interested in adding a sweet lab to your family.read more
I have worked closely with Sooner Labs as their local veterinarian for the past 13 years. I have continually been... impressed with the quality and temperament of their dogs and the conscientiousness of the breeders. They have always been outstanding clients to work with and we have a great veterinarian-client-patient relationship. When my wife and I were looking for a family dog to get our children, Sooner Labs was my first choice. We picked out a black Labrador that we named Murphy. He’s now a big, beautiful 3 year old dog that has made the perfect addition to our family. I can’t recommend Sooner Labs enough!read more
