Grizzly Bear

“We decided to replace our previous chocolate Lab of 12 years and found River Side Retrievers just in time for Christmas. Brayson & Brody seem to have a great atmosphere for raising dogs. The pups were clean each time we came to visit, but not just for show. We were able to see the parents and were happy with them as well. Though we are in the true "puppy" stages, We are excited to have found Grizzly Bear and welcome him lovingly! We would recommend looking in to River Side Retrievers for your next furry friend!"



"The Tonner family are very knowledgeable about their labs and passionate about their puppies. Their dogs are well cared for and parents are onsite pets. Great communication about our puppy from the time we picked her out until we brought her home, with updated pictures weekly. We're very happy with our choice!"



“We love our Annie girl from River Side Retrievers! She is super smart, well socialized, and loves to cuddle. Everywhere we go, people comment on her beautiful color and sweet disposition. The Tonner boys were great to work with and take great care of all their dogs! Love their FB posts and easy to navigate website! Will send all our family and friends to RSR!"



“We are so happy with our new little girl. Brayson was great to work with! Answered all our questions, let us contact their vet and great communication. We also used their driver to deliver her, who was amazing! Would recommend them for sure!"



“Brody & Brayson were great to work with! We love our amazing addition Juno! The communication was top notch!"



“We just got our puppy, Kups, this week from River Side Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. Was extremely nervous about making the deal through Facebook, but after being able to FaceTime them, we ended up with a gorgeous pup. Only a few accidents, very calm, and already a part of the family. Their transport liaison was great, transported Kups from Indiana to Washington, DC. If I ever want another Chessie or Retriever, I will definitely get it from them."

“London has been a great addition to our family. She has become my Saturday morning companion when out running errands. If London didn't already have a sister, I would definitely get another one from Riverside Retrievers."

"Extremely happy with our little Remi! Always had great communication and got updated pictures."



"So happy with our experience with River Side Labs! We had to drive a bit out of our way but it was so worth it! They were great at communicating and updating us the weeks leading up to when we were able to pick our puppy up. They sent us either a picture or video just about every week. She is already fitting in great with our family and our son has never been happier! Thanks so much River Side!!"

“The puppies parents are on site and well taken care of. The Tonner's take pride in there work, are well educated, and extremely pleasant to work with. The owners are quick to respond with any questions or concerns. I was impressed with their guarantee plan, there first round of shots records, and registration policy. We cannot wait to pick up our newest addition. If you are looking for a Forever Lab puppy, look no further, River Side Retrievers is where you want to be!"

“Great communication and updates on our silver Lab puppy Mia! All the puppies are well cared for and the parents are on site. I would go back to them if I ever wanted another Lab puppy!"



"Very impressed with River Side Chessies! We took our pup home last night and it went smoothly. Very detailed and honest and helped us go over all the paperwork and health records to make sure we didn’t have any questions. They went above and beyond accommodating our questions and schedule as we live nearly 4 hours away. I would highly recommend River Side to anyone looking for a well bred, happy, and healthy pup - they are by far the best breeder we have purchased from. Thank you River Side Chesapeake Bay Retrievers!"

“Ranger has been a great addition to our family. The Tonner’s were very helpful, and always had quick responses to any questions we had, and they were very accommodating to our schedule. They were willing to keep our puppy there and let us come over so my kids could play with our puppy when we were unable to pick him up for a couple weeks. We had a great experience with River side retrievers, and I highly recommend getting a puppy from Riverside Retrievers!"



“We brought our puppy Wilson home this past May and he has been a great addition to the family. I highly recommend River Side Retrievers. They were wonderful from the time we selected the pup to taking him home. They continue to check in to see how he is doing. Wilson is a very healthy and happy boy."



"My husband came across a post from River Side Retrievers and we instantly fell in love with the puppies in the pictures (I don’t know how anyone couldn’t!). They walked us through the application process and always worked with us when it came to visiting and picking out which pup would be ours. The farm is beautiful and you can easily tell the dogs are well taken care of and happy.

The dog we chose was Indy, a.k.a. “Blue”/“Big Hoss”. He has been a great addition to the family, full of energy, and very popular with those big blue eyes! When we are ready to get him a little brother or sister, we will absolutely being reaching out to River Side Retrievers again, and recommend them to anyone looking for a Labrador.



"We were very pleased with our experience with Riverside Labs. The Tonner family was very knowledgeable and helpful with answering all of our questions. We loved getting pictures of our puppy every week until we were able to bring him home!"



"We lost our Golden retriever and originally wanted a silver lab at the time all that was left was a Champagne. Great experience! I have never had a puppy this well behaved. Jax was potty trained in two, TWO DAYS!! I can not stress enough how great of a dog he is and how much he has helped us!"



"We are so happy with our new addition! Thank you River Side Labs for the great customer service! We were sent pictures and videos of our puppy. This is Cash. We renamed him to “Boston”. He is joined by our family of all girls except my Husband he is adjusting well and we are so happy to have him!"



"Tripp has been a wonderful addition to the family. He is very intelligent, loves to play, and is such a cuddly, sweet boy. I highly recommend River Side Retrievers. They were wonderful from the time I selected the pup to taking him home. Tripp was well socialized, used to his collar, and he is a very healthy boy."
