Cedar Ranch Labradors is located on 13 acres in beautiful Descanso, CA in the mountains of Eastern San Diego County. To the
north of us is uninterrupted forest of oak and chaparral which changes to pine in the higher elevations. Our property has many
mature cedar and oak trees as well as an orchard of fruit trees, and a large pond that contains many fish and turtles. We also have a
cattle, several cats, chickens, a Border Terrier named Harley whose mission in life is to kill all squirrels, and a new Rat Terrier pup
named Bluebell. Our kennel is comprised of fenced acreage as well as 8 covered outdoor concrete floor kennels with floor drains
and two indoor climate controlled whelping rooms. We also have a nice office and separate storeroom. The dogs run and play
outdoors during the day and are put up in the kennels at night for their own safety and protection from the elements and wild
