JAZZTIME LABRADORS consists of Larry and Anna Calvert and a group of black Labrador retrievers. We are located in the beautiful Mission Valley of western Montana. Our main focus is training for and running retriever field trials; however, we have run our dogs in the NAHRA hunt tests and in the APLA pointing events. Our dogs are hunted in the fall after the field trial season ends. We do all our own training although we do train with various pros at times.


At the present we are training 2 Labrador retrievers:

  • FC-AFC-CFC-CAFC Jazztime Bluegoose’s Skatch (“Skatch”) is now retired
  • Jazztime LL’s Mr Cool Jay (“Jay”)
We lost FC-AFC-CFC Jazztime Bluegoose’s Ruger in January 2017 in a freak accident while training.  He was doing a water mark and as soon as he entered the water he started floundering.  Before anyone could get to him he went down and never came back up.  We are not sure what happened to him but we are devastated at the loss.

In the summer of 2015, we lost FC-AFC-CFC-CAFC-GMPR-MHR Jazztime Last Chance v Pekisko.  We were very sorry to lose him, but we have 2 of his sons that are carrying on his legacy.

In 2006, we lost FC-AFC-CFC-CAFC Jazztime’s Frequent Flyer “Trip” (National Finalist 7 times). He was 13 years old, and he went peacefully. We miss him terribly, but know that he had a long, productive life. He has wonderful offspring all over the country and Canada.

We lost AFC-CFC-CAFC Chugach Hills Jazz’s Rascal in the summer of 2004; he was 14 and a half. Offspring of both Trip and Rascal are doing well in field trials, hunt tests and as gun dogs. Both have produced offspring that are natural pointers.

We usually have one or two gun dogs for sale around the beginning of hunting season.

We offer top quality studs who have produced pups that have done well as field trial retrievers, hunt test dogs, pointing Labradors, gun dogs and as all around family dogs.
