About Kennel Up Idaho English Style Labradors:Lt Yellow

English style hunting and family Labradors since 2004. My retired parents started Kennel Up' Idaho breeding the English style Labrador with the blocky head and stoutly built frame, wide otter tail and wonderful calm temperament characteristic of great English style Labradors.

Our sire, Snow Commander Gibbs, is a beautiful snowball white, with a fantastic blocky head a fabulous frame and a 'want to please' you attitude. Second generation mama's Maggie and Bella are a beautiful cream color and possess beautiful heads, great frames and wonderful temperaments. Fourth generation mama Chester is a beautiful light yellow with a great head, great frame and received her JR Hunt Title at one year of age after only 1month of training. Our puppies range in color from the fabulous snowball white of Papa Gibbs, to creams like Mamas Maggie and Bella and great shades of yellow like Mama Chester.

Our mama's are all from our original sire "Top Gun Cache Lucky" the son of Master Hunter "Golden States Wise Guy MH" who was featured on the 2006 cover of Ducks Unlimited. We have 2 Master Hunters, 6 Field Champions, 4 Amateur Field Champions, 1 National Amateur Field Champion and 1 Hall of Fame Retriever in the first 3 generations. When we go back 6 generations there are 35 FC, 30 AFC, 3 NFC, 6 NAFC, 4 CFC, 1 CAFC, 1CNFC, 1 GBSHCH, 1 USCH, 7 Show Champions and 19 Hall of Fame Retrievers.

Bloodlines = Brains

Our bloodlines go back to the 1800's with a combined total of 59 hall of fame retrievers all possessing wonderful brains and talent. The natural drive to hunt, the instinct of wanting to please combined with a sweet mellow temperament. These are the type of English Labradors we strive to continue to breed. Ideal for the weekend to active hunter that is happy to play ball with the kids and lounge in front of the fire at the end of the day.

We are a family owned and run hobby kennel. Papa Gibbs may look gigantic but in reality weighs in at 77 lbs. When not pregnant out mama's run between 65-75 lbs. Our mamas are fed a high protein diet during pregnancy and lactation. This rewards us with healthy pups al born weighing within ounces of each other. Our pups are whelped in our kitchen and handled from the minuet they arrive. They are socialized by adults, children and are grandkid tested and approved.

We offer a 24 month health guarantee against genetic defects such as hip or elbow dysplasia and eyes. Pups will have dew claws removed, have had their first shots and their first vet check before they are ready to go home. Breeding rights may be purchased by private treaty.

We have placed our puppies with wonderful families in Oregon, Washington, Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and California but do not ship pups. All pups are sold with limited registrations. Breeding rights for both males and females is by private treaty. We keep a running waiting list for the next litter and accept deposits once the pregnancy is confirmed.

We have also donated pups to Eagle, Nampa and Caldwell "Ducks Unlimited" auctions, Bishop Kelly's Scholarship Fund Auction and the Boys & Girls Club Wild West Auction.

We would Highly recommend buying from this breeder. We got our Puppy, formerly known as Msz. Pink, March 12th .. Her name now is Bella and she is a beauty. We are more than impressed with the instinct that is in our puppy. She is healthy and a wonderful example of her breed.

Highly recommend this breeder as our yellow lab puppy, named Anni Ansbach Goldenwine Hill is a wonderful new edition to the Hill Family of Garden City Idaho. Her unique coloring, combined with her wonderful, sweet, disposition, has caught the attention and affection of all that she comes in contact with to include our weekly doggie day care staff, that leverage her talents to calm small puppies and other new dog members down on a daily basis. She is definately what the Hill family needed with the unconditional love that she provides us daily, along with those wonderful doggie kisses. Congrats to Kennel Up for a Job Well Done. We could not be happier. Respectfully, Laura and Bart Hill

We have had two dogs from Kennel Up Idaho & both have been wonderful. Our most recent was a puppy out of Ducky in May 2011. Daisy is very mellow, pretty, & sweet. She has been easy to train and (knock on wood) never chewed on furniture or destroyed anything except her toys. She travels well (both in a car & on a plane) and is adaptable to all surroundings. She gets along well with all other dogs and cats. I highly recommend these dogs and the breeders.

We picked up our female pup Bailey in early June and have been thrilled. Bailey is very birdy, loves the water and retrieving and loves everybody and every other dog. Her temperament is exactly what I was looking for. I hunt ducks and pheasants but don't field trial so I also wanted a good trainable companion for the house most of the year. She's a quick learner and a very attractive pup. We just couldn't be happier.

We recently traveled during very bad weather to pick up our new pup from Kennel Up, Seattle to Parma ID. It was so worth the terrible trip we had. We spent over 10 hours in the car due to snow, Ice, and waits from Semi accidents, and our pup "Riley" was so cool and mellow on the way back. It forshadowed his overall tempterment today. We are just in love with him even our 4 year old springer (who is a little tweekie) has taken a liking to him. Riley is great with our kids and easy to house train. He is even walking on the leash easily. Our vet commented on his great disposition. And I can't forget our cat who doesn't like anyone, is even sleeping next to him. I can't recomment a better place to get a family pet, Kennel up not only produces healthy beautiful pups but they really know how to socialize them "family ready".

We got our yellow lab, Remi, in January of 2009 and she is the best dog we have ever had! She is extremely smart (sometimes too smart) and was so easy to train as a puppy. Remi is great off the leash and LOVES to swim. I think she would live in the water if she could! She is only about 55lbs as a 1 1/2 year old! I'm amazed but also refreshed with her size, as I work in a vet clinic and see many bigger labs with terrible hip and health problems. We have been thinking about getting another yellow lab soon and are without a doubt going to go through Kennel up Idaho again!

We purchased our lab from Cheryl about 2 yrs ago. His name is Hank and his parents are Cache and Annie. Hank is a wonderful dog who is extremely smart and gentle. Hank would live in the water if he could. I would not hesitate buying another Lab from this breeder. He is the most awesome dog.

We have had a wonderful experience with Kennel Up Idaho. The Harris family raises the best Labs that I was able to find in SW Idaho by far. Growing up in Iowa and having Labs as hunting and family companions, I was really shocked to find out how few good Yellow Labs there were in Idaho. We have had our female, Mazie, for close to a year now, and I can say without question, that she has the best disposition of any lab I've ever been around. She is on the smaller side at 70lbs or so, which is refreshing in this day of 100lb labs who don't look like a traditional lab and are set up for hip and shoulder problems in later life. My family and I are truly blessed that we found Kennel Up Idaho and the Harris Family. Thanks again John and Sheryl.
