Born on Easter! Our passion is our dogs. They are our family companions as well as our field and performance partners. Whether we are seeking a relaxed snuggle on the couch, the competitive drive of a champion dock jumper or a reliable retrieve in fowl weather ... they are tremendous!
What do we focus on in our dogs? We breed for unyielding drive in the field, paired with a loyal, friendly, outgoing and hard working temperament. Our pups enjoy being right in our lap at home or at the riverside as our fishing companions or breaking the ice in fowl weather water retrieves or competing in performance sports such as a placement at the top of labrador rankings in World/National Championship Dock Diving.*
The dogs we produce are well structured working dogs with bloodlines running rich with the Retriever Field Trial Hall of Fame, National Master Hunter Hall of Fame, APLA Pointing Labrador Hall of Fame, World and National Dock Diving Championships, Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge and other Performance/Sports plus more.
We screen for good health such as hips, elbows, eyes, hearts, DNA tests for EIC, CNM and PRA and we look for as many clearances in the pedigrees as possible. To be even more diligent, we run a coefficient of inbreeding before pairing dogs because diverse genetics have been shown to allow pups a longer and healthier life. No dog is perfect, but we do the best we can. We love what we do and do it right.
