The home of finely bred Field Trial, Hunt Test, and Hunting Labrador Retrievers – is owned and operated by Kyle Broussard and is located just outside Atlanta, Georgia.
Our mission is a simple one – to produce top quality Labrador Retrievers with tons of desire, marked intelligence, excellent trainability and classic good looks. We meticulously research breeding pairs, pedigrees, individual qualities and ensure all dogs have all necessary health clearances. Our goal is to provide you with quality bred puppies that exceed all of your expectations.
Kyle, a lifelong waterfowl hunter, is a native of Gueydan, Louisiana; the self-proclaimed “Duck Capital of America.” He believes in the concept of a well-rounded Labrador, one that can be a faithful hunting companion, a champion competitor in hunt tests and field trials, as well as a happy and well-adjusted family pet. If you long for a Labrador with any of these characteristics and talents, look no further than Abita River Retrievers.
As an avid hunter and Field Trialer, Kyle only breeds dogs he would be comfortable running in trials or sitting beside in a duck blind. Because of this selective breeding approach, puppies are not always available. When puppies are available, take action and rest assured that their distinguished heritage and initial upbringing is worth your investment of time, money and love.
Kyle is actively involved in many organizations which promote the shooting sports and wildlife conservation issues. Kyle is currently serving as the Secretary of the Atlanta Retriever Club and also actively supports Ducks Unlimited and Delta Waterfowl, respectively.
