Testimonials From Owners of
Silver Star Kennel
Silver Labrador Retrievers
Just wanted to let you know how Luna was doing. She is so smart in every way that you could ever want in a pup. At less than 5 months she was retrieving doves & loving it. Then we took a trip up to Canada to work on some ducks as you can see we limited out & she hit every mark that she was given. My buddies can not believe how well she is doing at a young age. Your bloodlines show how important your dogs are to you. The intelligence in Luna is unbelievable,when we talked about a hunting dog you told me what you could offer me & she is above & beyond that. At home she is a fun loving family dog, but when it's time to go to the field she knows its time to hunt. Thanks again for a great dog & a hunting partner.
I can’t tell you how blessed I feel to have come across you as
a breeder but more importantly as a person. Your ethics and
heart are second to none.
It has been such a blast this
whole year since we arrived at the airport to pick up Brea Anna
and see her mature into such a beautiful and loving part of our
family. Her early gentleness and compassion was a direct result
of the time you and your family spent with her and I really
appreciate the tender loving care you gave not just her but our
family as a whole.
I look forward to getting another beautiful Lab from you soon.
She is in need of an equally beautiful, compassionate and
Your research and hard work shines through our Brea every moment
we see her in our home and get a paw or a hug or a snuggle.
Thank you so much! If ever I could give to you what you have
given to our family you just name it!
Blessings to you and your family!
The Taylor Family- Keith, Tammy, Austin, & Brea Anna too. J
Well, it has been almost 2
weeks since our love affair with little Brooke began...
Everyone is totally blown away with her, she is
the most perfect little girl in the whole world.
I worried to death all day the 26th of March, because the poor
little thing would be on the airplane almost 9 hours, but
when they opened up the door at Delta cargo receiving, she was
all wags and licks, just happy as a clam.
She rode in the car like she had done it her whole life. When we
arrived home, once again, it was like she had always lived
is not afraid of anything and has social graces way beyond her
I checked out the testimonials on your web site and it would
seem like this is normal for one of your puppies.
We have taken her to many large social functions and she mingles
like a pro. I am so greatful for your attentiveness to your
puppies, she is a dream.....Thank you again.
Oh, I forgot, I do have one gripe with you.
My husband is so in love with her that he insists she sleeps
with us in bed. Not sure how that will work, but Brooke doesn't
mind at all! She does sleep the whole night thru.
You sent me too good of a dog :)
I will keep in touch.
Love our little Luna so much! She is the perfect addition
to our family. We just cant believe how smart she is! I think
she understand English!!! She likes everything we like:
road trips, camping, boating, fishing, and she's learning how to
be Josh's hunting partner. Luna is SO smart and obedient;
she even won 'Best Retriever' in her puppy class (up against 3
other labs!). Luna was definitely worth the wait. We are
so thankful to have Luna!!
Dear Lance and Kellyn,
We have been extremely happy with her. She does keep us on
our toes! She is quite the swimmer and retrieves on land and in
water. She has a nose on her beyond her age. She is
finding coveys of wild quail on the property and her manners are
getting better every day. David started letting her lay in
his lap when he was in his recliner shortly after we brought her
home. I warned him she would be 65 pounds and still
wanting in his lap. She is now 45 pounds and you guessed
it, she still thinks she should be in his lap. When I am
working with her, she looks right into my eyes like she knows
what we are trying to accomplish and does very well. We have
been dove hunting a bit. She goes and gets the doves but
by the time she gets them to me, they are pretty mangled.
We're working on it. My older lab, Josie was pretty
"hard mouthed" when she was young but grew out of it
as she matured. I have attached a few pictures, hope you
can open them.
David & Peggy Stalnaker
Charcoal Silver Lab Scarlett has been a wonderful addition to
our family, she is just 10 months old now. She has a very
special personality. I have never had a dog nuzzle up to my neck
and show so much love as she does. People have commented how
calm she was for a pup from the moment we brought her home at 8
weeks old. Scarlett minds well and is a quick learner. She has
natural retrieving ability. Scarlett will
dive down in the water to retrieve a ball that is sinking. She
never gives up, staying under water for 10 seconds at times.
Our kids love to entertain friends by showing off
Scarlett's stellar performances. Scarlett possesses a natural
mothering instinct. When we are in the pool Scarlett will pace
around the edge making sure we are all safe. We appreciate all
the time and care Silver Star Kennels put into their breeding
program. Lance and Kellyn have taught us so much about dogs and
we are so blessed to have one of their dogs as part of our
family. Our lives have been enriched by Scarlett and know when
we are ready for another dog we will be picking up another
Silver Lab from Lance and Kellyn. We can't
thank you enough “eh.”
The Scansen Family
wanted to give you an update on Roxy. She has grown into the
most beautiful girl. I can't describe how much we adore her. No
one could ask for a more loving, obedient, protective animal
Her intelligence level is incredible. She is a true
retriever in every sense. We take her in the boat on
the weekends to a secluded dog beach. She swims for 4
hours or more, never going more than 25 feet from us.
If I swim too far out, she comes to rescue me. I
grab onto her collar and she swims me back to shore. WOW!
She performs all the standard tricks perfectly. We are
constantly teaching her new things as she learns after only 3 or
4 tries. The true sign on sheer intelligence. Thank you,
Lance and Kellyn, for our best friend and protector, Roxy.
We are very pleased with our Silver Lab, "Tasker",
whom we purchased from Lance
and Kellyn. He has already shown signs of great hunting
ability and is an integral part of our family as well. He
is very biddable and is great with our children and other family
pets. He is retrieving well, takes commands, and is very
intelligent. We couldn't be more pleased and highly
recommend Silver Star Kennels.
Ron and Phyllis Rice
We couldn't be happier with Reba. She is just beautiful. She is
also very intelligent. Minds very well and knows all sorts
of tricks. But the best part for me is she has turned into an
excellent pheasant dog. She is doing better (much better)
than my buddy's black lab that is a week younger. She
retrieves excellently and is now very proficient with her
nose! Best dog we've ever had.
name is Travis Bacot and I received my much anticipated silver
lab from Kellyn and Lance about four and a half months ago.
Sterling has been an absolute pleasure to own. She is smart,
obedient,beautiful, and is really starting display her natural
drive to retrieve. She is such a unique dog and well behaved
enough to accompany me to work in an office setting from time to
time. She is a part of the family and has become the namesake
for my company (Sterling Financial Network). Like any citizen of
Louisiana, she loves LSU Games, Hunting, Eating, and anything
involving water. I highly recommend Lance and Kellyn and Silver
Star Kennels for your next pet.
If you ever wanted a companion who
would give you unconditional love, protect you, and behave almost
human, then you need a silver lab like my dog Coco. I can
promise you, she understands exactly what I say to her, obeys
immediately and couldn't be sweeter if she tried. I've never
seen a more intelligent dog or a more beautiful dog. You should
hear the compliments!
Everyone wants a dog like Coco, but she's
mine and I'll never part with her!
our puppy from Kellyn and Lance made us feel like we were
joining their extended family. They have been so helpful in
navigating the roads of puppy-hood and have given us terrific
advice on multiple occasions. They are very informed about
the breed and willing to share what they know long after a
family goes home with one of their puppies
and Lance are great people and it reflects in their dogs. I
can't say enough about Newt...I actually really don't have to
because everyone else takes care of that for me. Newt is
very friendly with other dogs, very aggressive when working, and
very sweet to my 3 year-old son. Newt's first hunting
experiences were very successful. Newt is now almost
a year old and is definitely the biggest kid in school! - Thanks
is the second puppy we have purchased from Lance and
Kellyn. Ava has been such a wonderful addition and
the perfect companion for our adult silver, Lena. Their
temperament and intelligence has exceeded all my
expectations. Lance and Kellyn share a unique passion
for the breed. This is evident in the quality of dogs they
produce and also the level of assistance they provide to
individuals interested in silver labs. Thank you
Lance and Kellyn for all your help,
I wish everyone could have seen how Bo picked Lance. Bo was the
first pup Lance picked up to pick out his pup. When he set this
6 week old pup down, he sat by Lance’s wheelchair and would
not let any other pups around him. Donna sends me a letter on all
the happenings with Bo and Lance from time to time, and I love hearing every one
of them. I will never forget the day Lance came to pick a pup
out, and to his surprise the pup picked him.
Silver Star Kennel
Let me start by stating that the pup that my son purchased from
you has been great for our family. I’ll never forget the day
that my son, who’s name is also Lance informed me that he had
purchased a dog via the internet and that I would need to take him
to Houston to pick the dog up. You see, Lance had recently been
injured while home on leave from U S Navy, he was a passenger in a
one vehicle accident was ejected and fractured his neck in three
places. He was still recovery from the spinal cord injury and due
to his paralyzes could not drive. So, I had to drive him to
Houston/Montgomery, Tx (3hr. drive, 6hrs. round trip) There Bo was friendly, not afraid of anything and
very active. He actually found Lance and kept coming to his
wheelchair. He was and still is so adorable. This was awesome to
watch because immediately Bo took to Lance and he is still
that way. This was the best thing that our son could have done is
to purchase a dog, especially a silver lab. He has been a joy;
extremely smart and loves family, friends and all the health care
nurses and attendants that come to visit Lance. He loves to play
fetch and play in the water, whether it’s in the canal, bay,
swimming pool or with the water hose. He knows when to stay out of
the way when Lance is eating or doing other personal things. He
knows come evening time that its time for him to hop in bed with
Lance to chill out and relax. He goes outside to take care of his
business and does not like to stay outside very long unless we are
outside. He is definitely a housedog. Take care,
Jax has been a great addition to our family. He
is now 15 months old has the greatest personality. He was so easy
to potty train too. He is very intelligent. Kellyn and Lance weren’t
kidding when they said that you get what you pay for! He has been
great with our 3 year old son as well. He is so gentle with him.
Jax is a natural at retrieving. He really loves it whether it is
in the water or on land. He is quite the conversation piece as
well. We have met so many people while walking him. They are
fascinated at how striking and beautiful he is. He truly IS a
member of our family. He goes just about everywhere with us. We
couldn’t be happier with Jax and would recommend Kellyn and
Lance and Silver Star Kennels to anyone and have already done so

Hi Kellyn and family -
Its been almost 2 years now since talking with you and buying
our light silver puppy from you (Miles)....just wanted to let
you know that he is a spoiled, highly loved and an all around
wonderful dog. He has been a great addition to our family.
He is great with our 2 1/2 year old little girl and also our 9
month old little boy. We already had a chocolate male
lab and they are the best of friends (inseparable). When
we take him to social gatherings we get SOOOO many awesome
compliments on him ("He is the best looking dog I have ever
seen", etc.) And I must say myself he is a beautiful
dog. I have told so many people where we got him and about
your website. And the thing is - is that no one has ever
seen a silver lab, at least where we are from (Maryland's
We live on the water and he goes swimming everyday, he dives all
the way under and will stand on his back two legs and look at
us.....he is something and he gets to go on the boat everyday
with my husband and he loves that. And no matter where my
husband is, you can find Miles right at his side. He
listens so well to not even be 2 years old. So
just wanted to let you all know how much we enjoy him in our
lives and in our family.......
