Our breeding program is dedicated to the development of the all-purpose Labrador Retriever which adheres to the AKC Breed Standard.
Our philosophy is that the Labrador is like a square; each dog must possess the four corner elements that make up the square:
temperament, soundness, function, and beauty. Without any one of these elements in abundance, the Labrador would not be what it is
today-- America's most popular dog! Our breeding blend combines AKC show champion pedigrees, hunting and obedience titles with fine
family pet temperaments to produce an attractive, intelligent friend.
Genetics: Clean, healty bloodlines reflecting show and hunt pedigrees. Health clearances on sire and dam include OFA Hips and Elbows
certified clear of dysplasia, Cardiac and Patellas clear, and clear eye clearances yearly by a canine opthalmologist as well as genetic
clearance for PRA (progressive blindness), EIC (a seizure-like disorder) and CNM (a rare genetic disorder).
Whelping/Rearing Environment: Climate controlled, comfortable, safe, sanitary whelping room and rearing kennel attached to covered
outdoor kennel and grass play area. Multiple daily cleanups and daily sanitation.
Training: Early socialization with people of all ages, especially children. Beginning crate, house and litter box training as well as bite
inhibition and manners training. Basic social skills with positive reinforcement. Age appropriate toys and treats.
