Located in Hemingway SC. BlackFoot is a private country sanctuary for humans and the dogs we care for. Located just an hour's drive from I-95, conveniently situated between Myrtle Beach, SC. and Florence, SC. Our training friends and clients often travel from North Charleston, SC (approximately 1.5 hours) and many areas of the North /South Carolina border. 


We offer a peaceful clean setting where we breed, whelp and raise our award winning Labrador Retrievers. Our home and property provides the perfect training settings for our canine and human students to come stay and learn with us. 

When we train a dog for you at BlackFoot, our responsibility as trainers does not end there. Our policy is that we not only train the dog, but we must also train the trainer (that's you). When you bring home a well trained dog from BlackFoot, you also take away the knowledge to maintain and enhance your dog's new skills and education. 

"Find something you love to do and be passionate about it. Practice at it and try to be good at it. Don't be a spectator."
