Thank you for inquiring about our Labrador Retrievers. We are dedicated "fanciers"
who participate in various dog related events. We breed occasionally to produce charming, gentle and beautiful Labrador Retrievers that conform to the breed standard. They are intelligent, intuitive, mellow souls capable of any endeavor that is asked of them including their favorite outdoor fun- Retrieving. We also
focus on doing all we can to produce physically and mentally sound dogs with keen intelligence and a
gentle, laid back demeanor. They are easy on the eyes, gentle to the soul, and a true, loving companion.
Through competitions, membership in both the local and national Labrador Retriever
Clubs we are exposed to other points of view, educational programs, updated rules
and regulations and more importantly have an opportunity to share concerns,
information and ideas with other concerned and knowledgeable canine professionals.
When we have litters, we make sure our puppies are sold to loving committed
homes. We do our best to get to know each family and their lifestyle to ensure a good match. As a result
we do not implement the first pick, second pick system but instead prefer to help each family choose
the right puppy based on the type of personality that will best fit into their day-to-day living.
Before the puppy leaves our home, it has been well cared for, loved, introduced to toys,
held, played with, spoken to as an individual (and in a group), familiarized with basic
phrases and words used in training and day-to-day pet/human interaction, introduced to other dogs in our
home, received basic crate training, basic potty training (weather permitting),
and socialized. The puppy does not go to it's new owner as a trained, well-mannered
finished product. It is up to the puppy buyer to complete the job we have started.
The new owner is responsible for the further development of the puppy’s personality,
through structured discipline, training, guidance, and love. In an effort to ensure that
our puppies are going to receive the love and care they will require throughout their
lives, we ask all potential buyers to complete a questionnaire. If you wish to be
put on our waiting list you must complete and return the questionnaire to us.
All of our pet puppies are sold on a Limited Registration--without exception, which
means that if the dog is bred, the resulting offspring will not be recognized or
capable of being registered with the AKC. As much as possible we attempt to evaluate each puppy’s personality
by observing them during their development and diligently
match the puppy to the buyer to produce the best fit of puppy and family.
Prior to taking the puppy home you will be given information on training and care of
your puppy and a list of the proper equipment and supplies to obtain prior to
bringing your puppy home. At the time you purchase your puppy you will be given a
completed sales agreement (which you must sign), we will fill out the AKC papers
which I will mail from here with your check, parents OFA/ACVO certifications, our
health records, the puppy's microchip information
Our Labradors require a wonderful loving home where they will be a cherished member of the family for their lifetime. A puppy questionnaire helps us get to know each potential family and what type of Labrador will best fit into their lifestyle. All of our Labradors are placed on AKC limited registration.
