Welcome to Hickory Nut Kennels - specializing in Labrador Retrievers

About Us

Experienced Breeders



Established in 1981, Hickory Nut Kennels is an AKC certified full-service dog kennel in Cullman, Alabama. We are a legacy breeder specializing specifically in British Labradors and Golden Retrievers. Our dogs are from the very best British Labrador champion bloodline born right here in Alabama, and whose original ancestors were imported from top British and Scottish hunting and field trial champions.

Hunting Partner and Family Member



Our dogs are not only for the hunter! British Labrador retrievers are mild-tempered and easily trained making them the perfect family companion as well. They haven’t been voted Most Popular Breed by the American Kennel Club for 27 years in a row for nothing!

We at Hickory Nut Kennels love our puppies and continue to follow their lives even after they have left our care. When you choose a Hickory Nut Kennels pup you’re not our customer – you become part of the HNK Family, and we have a BIG family! Matter of fact, most of our family members come back to us for training and within just a couple of years are taking home their next pup! 

We are located in Cullman, Alabama.
