JEAN O'CONNOR ~ AKC BREEDER OF MERIT
We breed just a few littters a year and spend a lot of time socializing the pups to become your trusted friend and/or hunting companion or a service dog. Our goal is to produce dogs that are wonderful to share your house with, obeys mamma and loves the kids but when with Dad it's the hunting dog that makes him proud!
Our labs are AKC and/or UKC registered ~ OFA CERTIFIED, (hips) -( Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) and NORMAL CERF- (eyes) (Canine Eye Registration Foundation) EIC and CNM tested and bred to FIELD TRIAL CHAMPIONS, TITLED AKC and TITLED UKC Dogs as well as SOLID HUNTING STOCK. They come with a 26 month written guarantee on hips and 12 months on eyes. We also guarantee our puppies to pass YOUR VETS health exam! Pups have dewclews removed, first shots, and wormed. We also give our pups a head start on crate training right from the whelping box so the transition is much easier for the new owners. We spend hours socializing our pups and handling them on a daily basis. We introduce, not overwhelm, our pups to sights and sounds, all sorts of objects to explore and have fun with, along with exposure to birds. Our freezer has limited space for frozen veggies because of all the frozen doves, ducks and wings! Our pups are smarter and easier to train along with an attitude of wanting to please and they possess all the genes needed for competition, hunting, service dogs, drug dogs, bomb detection dogs, Search And Rescue, or just a good looking, wonderful pet. Hat Creek strives to produce a healthy lab that will bring you many years of service, enjoyment, and sheer pleasure.
You won't be dissappointed in a dog from Hat Creek Farm for we want you to own a good looking great dog and one that exceeds your expectations.

Submitted by: Courtney on Feb 28, 2014Jean is a very special person. After losing my yellow lab of 12 years last year I was hopeful I would be able to find a puppy from the Yukon lineage to honor her. I called Jean and discovered she was expecting a litter in a few months. Bear is a wonderful companion, incredibly sweet and so smart. Because he was so special and Jean is such a professional, caring breeder, I ended up with a second Yukon puppy about 7 months later. I now have two of Jean's yellow labs and I couldn't be happier. If you are looking for a breeder who takes pride in raising litters, I would highly recommend Jean. The puppies are A+ with regard to health, disposition and intelligence. If I could manage 3 puppies I would get another! Thank you Jean.
Submitted by: lainey lortz on Feb 25, 2014Chuck Tash a breeder and trainer from Florence Alabama recommended me to Jean several months after we had lost our 9 year old Lab. We had several conversations and decided to put our name in for a female due in Oct. 2013. I visited Jean and met Evie the mother in late September and was very impressed with her Farm and set up,especially impressed with the beautiful dogs she had in the kennel and how she interacted with them all. It was a special meeting for me. I explained we wanted a house dog but one who would go hunting with my husband as well. Hattie is 41/2 months now and has been a wonderful companion and instant friend to all. She is very very smart, loving and eager to please us. She has learned commands quickly. Jean's sense of showing love and care for her Puppies is amazing. We are so pleased we chose our Hattie from her. We look forward to many more fun and rewarding times with her.
Submitted by: Brent Collier on Oct 30, 2013Having known Jean personally for many years and spending time with her and her dogs, I can say that one would have a difficult time locating a more knowledgeable breeder who genuinely cares about the breed and works to that as her motive out of love for the animals. Absolute top notch breeder who cuts no corners.
Submitted by: Rob Clouse on Sep 18, 2013We are so happy we found Jean & Hat Creek Farms! Jean's passion for breeding quality pups is second to none.
We feel blessed to have found the addition to our family at Hat Creek Farms. Our dog, Pippa, has proven time and again that breed and lineage has such a huge impact on trainability and inherited traits. We fell in love with here momma, Bella, and her pup seems to have the same traits and temperament.
Very lovable, great with the kids, learns quickly.
I anticipate getting another pup in a couple years, and we will definitely be going back to Jean.
Submitted by: Chris J on Sep 04, 2013Got a pup from Hatcreek last October. Looked around different breeders before I found Hatcreek. Jean knows her labs. Got a pup and it is a gundog program. Delta can be a serious duck hunter and then at the end of the day can a great family dog. The kids love her! You won't go wrong with Hatcreek . Chris J. Gray, Ga
Submitted by: Bill Searcy on Aug 29, 2013Jean operates a first class breeding program and I would recommend her kennels to anyone that is searching for a pup.
Submitted by: David Brown on Jul 13, 2013Charlie was a gift to my wife for graduation present. Iím a nut for doing research before I make any investment, especially when it involves a long term commitment. Terry and I were looking for an American Field Lab. We looked on the internet for several months and found a lot of breeders that claimed they had the American Field Lab and to my surprise the majority of them had a cross between the English and the American Field Lab. Terry came across Hat Creek Farms and I did my research and Jean had the quality of American Field Lab we were looking for. After talking to Jean we knew are search was over. Charlie was born March 4, 2013. Having a good temperament, and just being part of the family was very important to us. It was just a bonus that they were also bread for hunting and being used in search and rescue. This takes a very special blood line to be able to do that -I know because I have several hunting dogs. Charlie is a female Yellow American Field Lab, from day one she has been crate trained, and at 12 weeks we had her trained to sit, lay down, stay, and not pulling on a leash. She is very close to being able to walk by me off leash. When we feed her next to our other lab (Hunter) I give them a wait command and get them to stay before they eat. I also give her a wait command before she comes out of her crate. It takes a very intelligent dog to do that and at such an early age! Her ability to retrieve is unbelievable, and what a nose she has! Iím starting to train her for hunting. Our vet even mentioned she sees a lot of labs and how intelligent Charlie is. I think she understands the English language. I know from raising puppies the personal care you give them is unbelievable and it makes them very special. I will keep a long term relationship with Hat Creek Farm and we love the bread so much we are going to keep the Yukonís blood line going. I will be purchasing a male from Jean in the future. Sorry for being long winded but Charlie is worth it.
May Jean be blessed and Hat Creek Farm!

Submitted by: Ron Brainard on Jul 06, 2013My name is Ron and I am a K9 Officer with our Sheriff's Department. I have trained and handled dogs since 2001. I came across Ms Jean when I went looking for a Lab to train up as my partner. The first time I talked with Ms Jean I knew I had found someone with the knowledge, training, and experience to breed and select dogs. She showed me Lily and she had drive that was out of this world and I knew immediately she would become a great Narcotics Detector Dog. And she did. We worked Criminal Interdiction on our interstate and Lilly bagged many a criminal. I was promoted off the street, but wanted Lilly to continue her law enforcement career. She is now a proud member of the Perry Police Department and excels at her job. The temperament and drive is second to none. Ms Jean knows what dogs are going to make great "family friends" and which are going to make great service dogs. Thanks Ms Jean. I was going to post a photo of Lilly's first hit which netted us a pound of marijuana, but I don't see where you post a photo ... sorry.
Submitted by: Eric on Jul 03, 2013I picked up my puppy (Jackson) from Jean in April. After talking to many breeders in my search process, I knew once I talked with Jean I wanted one of her dogs. From March to April she provided me with pictures and updates many days each week. It was great to see him grow and get the updates on how he was doing. From the moment I brought Jackson home he never stops impressing me! He is extremely smart, picks up things VERY quickly and is great with dogs, adults and small children. He has been doing great in his puppy class and with his clicker training. Last week I was struggling to put his walking harness on, he kept wanting to chew it. I then remembered he knows the "leave it" command (which I taught him during his clicker training work). I told him "leave it" and he stood perfectly still and let me strap the harness on him! I couldn't recommend Jean and Hat Creek enough.
Submitted by: Cristina Lamar on Mar 03, 2013We currently have a 5 month old yellow female lab, purchased in October 2012. Our little Rio is the best decision my husband and I have made since being married! My dad has raised and trained quality labradors my entire life , and he pointed me in Jean's direction and I have never looked back. Rio has had one of her first training sessions with a professional trainer up here in kentucky and he couldn't say enough positive things about how impressed he was with Rio. Everywhere we go everyone comments on how she is the most beautiful lab they have ever seen! We are proud parents. I would recommend Jean's quality bred labradors to everyone, we will certainly be looking her way for our second labrador!!
