At Snow Ridge Labradors we love, raise and share our lives with top quality Labrador Retrievers that conform to the AKC Breed Standard. We are breed preservationists and hobbyists that raise our Labs in a safe, loving environment with daily tlc and attention. They are first and foremost our beloved companions that are intelligent, gentle, self assured individuals that excel as family dogs, therapy and service dogs, emotional support companions, in the show ring, obedience and in the field as working hunters. Primarily they are the best friends we've ever had, and it shows on every Labrador grin that greets us daily.
Our Labradors are family companions first and foremost, however we do show in conformation & obedience as time merits. We are developing young emotional support and therapy dogs who are passing their certifications at a very young age. Our Labradors are not kennel kept dogs. They are members of the family and enjoy the benefit of a two-acre fenced yard on our six acre farm, hanging out on the porch or in the house, and a good game or two of ball, walks and retrieving at the local pond. Our lives revolve around our dogs and the joy that they bring into our lives each and every day.
Our Labradors are chosen for their kind, gentle, laid back intelligence that allows them to excel in what ever endeavor is asked of them...as companions, show and hunting dogs, therapy and emotional support dogs that provide years of joy and happiness to their owners. We diligently research bloodlines for temperament, soundness, intelligence, trainability, and the laid back gentle qualities that make our Labradors such perfect ambassadors of the breed...anywhere they go. They are beautiful, easy to live with, funny and unique...we are lucky to be owned by such a jolly crew.
Maddie Mae "Niall's Stockingstuffer at Snow Ridge" is our beautiful young lady from Niall's Labradors in California. Thank you Kaytlynn Howden for entrusting us with our beloved girl. Maddie is a daughter of AKC GCH Anguk Nauk (Anguiano). She is a gentle, intutive, laid back young lady who has been the perfect puppy in every way. When Maddie arrived she decided that she was the caretaker and best friend of my dear 16 year old Bulldog Pima. Maddie cleaned the folds on her face, kindly curled up with her, and worried when old Pima would totter to her food bowl...eagerly, but elderly. When Pima passed away on her doggie bed on Memorial Day 2018 I found Maddie curled up around her...ever the best friend. She is special indeed.
Tara is our pick puppy from the Aug. 29, 2018 litter. She is gorgeous, smart, mellow and funny. Like all of our Labs she is easy to live with, gentle and kind. She is crate trained, leash trained, house trained, and up to date on all vaccinations and worming. If you are interested in Tara please contact us. All puppies are AKC registered and placed on limited registration. Our puppies are raised on Royal Canin Labrador puppy food, Missing Link puppy supplement with probiotics and omegas which provides all the necessary ingredients for optimal mental and physical development. Puppies are raised in our home with lots of love and tlc, they receive their first vaccinations and worming prior to leaving for new homes at 8 weeks of age. Our puppies are socialized several times a day from birth, and visitors (who just want to cuddle puppies) are encouraged.
Guinness "Cannon Ridge Summertime Gallivant to Snow Ridge and Tampa Bay" received winner's dog and reserve winner's dog to add his first AKC point toward his championship only days after turning six months old . A big name for such a little guy, but we had to include everyone. We co-own him with our good friend Linda Carroll of Cannon Ridge Labradors. Many thanks to the two Lindas (Cannon Ridge & Tampa Bay Labradors) for entrusting us with this charming boy. Guinness is a son of AKC Bronze GCH/CH Lakeside Memoir of Gallivant "Memo" and AKC Ch. Tampa Bay Allenie Cannon Ridge Surf the Endless Summer "Summer". Stay tuned for more adventures as Guinness grows up. We are so thrilled to have this gentle funny boy as part of the family. He is a total comic with a kind spirit who enjoys a good rollick with his friends in the yard or at full gallop around the living room.
