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, healthy 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 DNA clearances
for PRA (progressive blindness), EIC (a seizure-like disorder), CNM (a rare genetic disorder) and many other disorders.
Whelping/Rearing Environment: Climate controlled, comfortable, safe, sanitary whelping room and rearing kennel attached to covered
outdoor kennel and seasonal grass play areas (So in summer it is dirt :) ) 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 intro to
clicker, noise acclimation, basic social skills with positive reinforcement. Puppy Culture method used. Age appropriate toys and treats.
Nutrition: Mother's milk until 3-4 weeks of age when moistened premium quality kibble is introduced.
Medical: Preventative care given including vaccinations and dewormings. Microchip and first veterinary visit done prior to pups going home.
