Trinity Oak Labs is a kennel that I cannot thank enough. I started training in 2008 after purchasing a yellow lab, from another local kennel. I didn't know about TOL until after I purchased my pup, or else it would've been from them.
I met Abby shortly after I joined the Backwater Retriever Club. From day one, Trinity Oaks has helped me prepare for AKC/UKC Hunt Tests and my success as a Trainer/Handler is mostly because of the knowledge the Eash family has shared with me.
After training with Trinity Oaks several days a week, me and my lab - Tucker, have successfully passed 4 straight AKC Hunt Tests earning his Junior Hunter Title.
Training with Abby has allowed my dreams as a Trainer/Handler to become a reality; and
even though my dog is not a Trinity Oaks Lab, when-ever I finish college, I am looking to purchase a puppy from this Kennel.

I recently brought my dog, Spider, to Trinity Oak Labs in fall 2009 with what I thought was a serious problem handling birds. After a couple sessions correcting me, and just a week with my dog, things are now going very well.
Thank you very much for getting us through this. What I thought was a big deal, you made it seem easy to correct.
I would highly recommend anyone who is having any difficulty with their dog to come and see you right away. It sure makes a difference when things start to go bad!

My yellow lab female, Millie, was sent to Trinity Oak's for training when she was 9 months old in the spring of 2008. After she was there for just two months, she had very good obedience, sitting, staying, and heeling very well on command, and also respected our leash.
She loves retrieving and has a good hunting instinct. She isn't afraid of gun reports and is attentive. She marks very well, holding until released, and then goes straight to the bird.
Millie had also completed the Force-fetch program and she now brings it directly back to us, and releases on command.
Those were exactly the things we had been hoping for with training, and we are very pleased with the service and training that we received from Trinity Oak Labs.
Our next dog will definitely be coming from your kennel and receive the training as well. Thanks so much!

"I acquired a black lab ‘Blake’ a couple of years ago from field trial lines. I looked around locally and found Abby. Abby has great dog sense and has the proper knowledge to be a first class retriever trainer. She prides herself on continual improvement as well. I believe in the near future we will see Abby achieve national stature.
Our goal this summer was to finish Blake’s HRCH title and to enter him in a field trial Qual. Both of which we have accomplished with Abby handling him.
Although I am fairly new to the Retriever scene, I have a long background of dog training and knowledge thereof. I have had the benefit of seminars from leading German Police trainers, SAR trainers and now Retriever trainers, and have enough knowledge to spot trainers who know or don’t know what they are doing.
Abby has rare ability to read dogs. Her approach involves more than mechanics. She approaches each dog as an individual, since dogs are individuals and learn differently. Abby combines her intuitive gifts with correct knowledge and discipline of retriever training to help your dog become the very best retriever it can be." ~
