What a thrill to watch Earl Thomas take Bella from the whelping box to this HUGE accomplishment.  Earl has done everything you could ask of a co-owner,  trainer and especially a friend. This accomplishment is even more outstanding because of the 56 Labrador Retrievers to earn these two titles, only 10 are females!!           


CH Sonlight's Go For The Gusto, WC, CGC, JH CH  Gus finished his championship on January 8, 2012 with his third major (only two are required).  He also earned his Canine Good Citizen award June 16th at the WLRC Specialty.  Although both photo's are Gus, the photo on the right is his last major and he was out of coat!  He's a beautiful boy and wonderful temperament!   






We love our Labs! Is there a better breed on earth?  We don't think so, and statistically Labs are the number one breed in the USA.  And why not.....friendly and loving, hard working in the ring and in the field.  At Sonlight Labrador Retrievers we work toward breeding the perfect Lab.  Just right for you and your family. Come on in and see what we mean!


Our Mission

At Sonlight Labrador Retrievers, we love Labs!  Over the past 48 years we have competed with, lived with and thoroughly enjoyed our dogs.  We believe our animals should be beautiful, intelligent, loving and a great companion.  We breed toward the best genetically sound animals possible. Our motto and philosophy is:  Beauty & Brains, A Winning Combination!



Our Profile

Over the past 48 years, it has been our pleasure to participate in obedience, field and conformation.  We have produced approximately 41 litters of puppies with various degrees and titles.  Our greatest joy is to match a puppy with the owner he or she deserves.  Whether it's for work or play, we believe every puppy has a soul mate just waiting to love and appreciate it.  

We are active members in both Forest City Dog Training Club and Winnebago Labrador Retriever Club and Rock River Retrievers.   Sue has retired from teaching obedience classes at FCDTC.
