Forty years of breeding, showing, and hunting Labrador Retrievers. Our Labs represent the finest English, American and International Champion bloodlines that produce consistently awesome puppies our family of owners rave about!
Our breeding stock have clearances, such as OFA Hip, Elbow, and Eye clearances, and genetic tests Exercise Induced Collapse, Progressive Retinal Atrophy HPNK and the Dilute Color Gene.
We breed for temperament, physical soundness, intelligence, abilities, and proper American Kennel Club (AKC) conformation. They make trainable, affectionate, devoted, and beautiful pets. Our dogs have earned show, obedience, and hunting titles.
We require our puppies to be spayed or neutered once they have reached their full grown gorgeousness. If they are "fixed" before this, it can stunt their growth causing problems in the future. It is best to wait until at least 14 months of age, when their growth plates have closed. Spaying females too young can cause repeated problems with vaginitis, among other things.
All our puppies are sold with Limited AKC Registrations, which do not allow any offspring to be registered. Breeders do this to protect the quality and health of Labrador Retrievers, which have been number one in AKC registrations for decades. Breeding only generations of cleared parents greatly reduces the probability that YOUR puppy will not have these health issues. ALL breeds of dogs have health concerns, they just differ by breed. Hips and other joint issues are not entirely genetic, but can be influenced by such things as nutrition and injuries. It is unwise to let young dogs jump into or out of pickups, off decks, or overstress their quickly growing bodies by jogging, especially on hard surfaces. Obesity is another contributing factor in straining developing joints.
