The Labrador Retriever was reintroduced to America in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The breed quickly became popular here thanks to early Labrador kennels such as Jay Carlisle of Wingan, W Averell Harriman of Arden, Franklin Lord of Blake, Marshall Field of Caumsett, Paul Bakewell III of Deer Creek, Dr Samuel Milbank of Earlsmoor, Mr and Mrs Frederick of Timber Town and many others.

Below is an alphabetical list of early kennels in America.
