1.) We are a family hobby breeder that raises & shows quality English yellow AKC Labradors. Our motto is "Quality, not quantity". We have only 4 breeding females and they share our home with us.
2.) We are blessed with very light (white) colored AKC yellow Labs. Though they are super light in color our Labs are registered with AKC as yellow. We breed for temperament, health and quality before color.
3.) Our Labs puppies are social bugs before they leave our home. We believe in the importance of socializing the puppies well with plenty of stimulation from birth.
3.) Parents are screened for health clearances. We test for OFA hips/elbows, eyes (CERF), heart, DNA tested for EIC and PRA and more.
4.) We breed for AKC standard English Labrador Retriever puppies. We breed a well built Labrador that we can bring into the show ring.
About us: My husband is a teacher and Varsity Football coach. We school some of our children from home. We love education and plenty of family time.
I began raising Labrador with my father back in the 70's and helped our Labrador in the whelping process from an early age. There has not been anything that I love to do more since that time.
We have some very professional puppy handlers that don't mind devoting extra attention to each litter of puppies. Our Lab puppies are born inside of our home and stay inside of our home the entire time. They are loved and handled on a daily basis. We have an indoor whelping & puppy room with private yard access for our puppies. Our puppies are never kept outside! Newborn puppies are kept in our master bedroom after they are born. We also incorporate early potty training into their daily routine while they are here. We use a paper training method that makes it easier for you when the puppy arrives.
Our Labs are versatile: We specialize in raising quality, sound Labrador puppies with a focus on structure, temperament, health, socialization and good early experiences for each puppy. Often our puppies are requested as therapy & service dogs. Our puppies have found their way into show, therapy, service, hunting, and pet homes. Some of them have even gone on to dock jumping! Many of our dogs have been used by Target or other places for products and ads. Our Labs have nearly done it all and without a doubt we feel that we can match you with a desired puppy to fit your family and needs.
All of our dogs receive individualized training, attention and excellent care by us personally. With great success we have placed many puppies into diverse homes. Matching our puppies to a new family is an enjoyable experience. Before each puppy leaves our home a formal Volhard evaluation is done for each one to determine their social attraction, following instinct, social dominance level, sensitivity, retrieving instinct, hunting drive & structure according to AKC standard. To help us deliver to you a sound and stable puppy we have carefully planned each litter, tested parents for genetics and implemented play, exercises and sensory techniques at an early age. Our Labs are part of our family and we believe that each one deserves love, training and plenty of attention.
