One of our Puppy Socialize-rs :)




We are a breeder that is tremendously
devoted to what we do.

We put a lot of time and effort in to our joy and passion!  

We hold health testings & OFA testings as a high
importance for our Labradors.  

We are 
constantly
 striving to ensure that we are breeding
to the highest quality possible.

All of our Labradors come with copies of all their health testings and if possible copies of their x-rays. So that you can be sure that your puppy is clear of hereditary health problems.

Our two children assist us with the daily chores and upkeep of a family of Labradors.  They are great helpers in making sure that all our puppies and our Labradors are well socialized.

********************************************************
Answers to the main questions
we get asked:


We are continually focusing on Improvement Breeding.

All of our puppies are registered with the AKC.

We are a Registered Kennel.

Our Labradors are health tested.

All of our puppies are micro-chipped (unless otherwise requested).

Yes, we do have full-time indoor Labradors and those that frequent the house often.  We also bring our pregnant females indoors as whelping approaches and also after.


Our females only have 4 to 6 litters at a max.  However, we have retired some of our girls after their 1st or 2nd litter after seeing them having a harder time bouncing back after a litter. 

We consider granting Full Breeding Rights to
Reputable Breeders for an additional fee.


********************************************************

    Do your research!  
Make sure you are buying from a reputable breeder.  
Be prepared to ask questions and know what you want.
Health Testings/Clearances should be at the highest importance to a breeder
...as should the overall 
commitment to improved breeding and the life of their Labradors.

********************************************************
I have noticed a lot of new breeders claiming that you are buying a silver-factored Labrador, when in fact only one parent (sire or dam) is silver-factored ('Dd') and the other is a standard ('DD').  That in turn means that there is only a 25% probability ratio that each puppy will in fact have the dilute gene ("Dd").  To know for sure each puppy in question must be tested to determine the validity of the claim.

You should be leery of breeders who claim that their puppies are from proven good hips (even with no OFAs filed in puppy's lineage) or OFA cleared by parentage. While OFA'd parents are a very good indicator for the lineage, each puppy is individual and is not cleared by OFA until they are actually preliminary OFA'd (before the age of 2) or final OFA'd (after the age of 2).  
While OFA hips ratings can be genetic, it can also be influenced by poor diet, stress on joints or a number of other factors.  

Pedigrees should be made readily available for interested buyers.  You should check pedigrees to make sure that the bloodlines are not too closely related (which could make bad recessive genes more dominate and cause problems for the improvement of the Labrador lines).

Champion bloodlines are very hot buzz words in today's Labrador world.  There are those touting "Champion Bloodlines" to sell their puppies.  I, myself have had my interest piqued by such claims and then I start my due diligence research....so I purchased a research pedigree from AKC on their Labradors only to find just 1 or 2 Champion or Field Champions titles in their 5 generation pedigree.  Very misleading!  That's why I say pedigrees should be made readily available for interested buyers so that they can see for themselves how many champions or field champions are actually in the pedigree being advertised.

The old adage still remains true... "You get what you pay for".  Breeders that sell Labrador puppies lower than the average cost (research prices for yourself) are cutting corners in some way or form (whether that be by not doing health testing on the parents, not removing dew claws, or inserting micro chips, or guaranteeing their puppies at least till the age that hip dysplasia can be determined by OFA , etc..).  

Make sure that you thoroughly research the breeder that you choose, that you are comfortable with the corners cut to get the lower price, and make yourself a list of questions to ask prior to contacting them.

Why we do, what we do

We love Labrador Retrievers because they are fun loving and make wonderful family oriented pets. Labs are a devoted, playful and an intelligent breed. They make a great addition to any family....large or small and adapt well to all types of lifestyles.

& because they make our lives happier :)





Our main interest is in the dilute and unusual colors (such as: silver, charcoal and champagne); however, we love all of the variety of colors produced within the Labrador Retriever genotypes.

One of our main focuses is on type and temperament. All of our lab puppies are raised in our home and have a "one on one" interaction with us from the moment of their birth until they are ready for their new homes

When our lab puppies leave us for their new homes, we provide detailed instructions and a folder filled with helpful information on the art of raising a puppy, as well as copies of the parents pedigrees, and their health clearances. We are in the process of certifying all of our breeding stock through OFA (hips, elbows, cardiac & patella) and working towards all clearances such as EIC, CNM, DM and PRA/PRCD.

All of our lab puppies are sold with a limited AKC registration. However, full breeding rights can be purchased with approval. We also provide a bill of sale and a 30 month (2.5 year) hip dysplasia guarantee...along with a 1 year congenital guarantee.

All of our lab puppies are loved and played with by our family. Our young children are very much involved with the rearing of our labs. Our dogs love playing hard and resting in between :)

Our Labs are all well adapted to a wide variety of noises and interactions.
They love to go on walks, exploring the outdoors, swimming, camping, playing with the other dogs, and several of them will even allow my daughter to play dress up with them... precious.

Labs of a Different Color

Although the AKC acknowledges the many different colors of the versatile Lab, including Silver and Charcoal, it is true the AKC only recognizes the Yellow, Black and Chocolate in the Show Ring, and although the Chocolate colored Labs had an easier time, the Yellows were only accepted after a few strong supporters of the color refused to give up.

And so the lovers of these beautiful Silver, Charcoal, Champagne, White and Fox Reds are left to hope the AKC will see the popularity of these colors surge and allow them to have the full recognition they deserve, not in the field, or home where they already reign, but to the show ring also so that these colors can be held accountable to the AKC standard of the Labrador Retriever alongside their Black, Chocolate and Yellow breed mates!

"Labrador Retrievers that express the dilution gene (dd) are recognized and registered by the American Kennel Club (AKC) based on their foundation genetic... colors, Black, Yellow, or Chocolate.

- Labradors that are descriptively called “Silver”
are registered as their base genetic color Chocolate.

- Labradors that are descriptively called “Charcoal”
are registered as their base genetic color Black.

- Labradors that are descriptively called “Champagne”
are registered as their base genetic color Yellow.

- Labradors that are descriptively called "Red Fox"
are registered as their base genetic color Yellow.

- Labradors that are descriptively called "White"
are registered as their base genetic color Yellow.


The policy of registering light shades of the breed standard-described colors was established after a joint investigation by the AKC and Labrador Retriever Club of America (LRC) in the 1980’s, wherein breed purity of “Silver” Labradors was also confirmed.
