We are a small hobby kennel situated on about five acres in
Central Illinois about three hours Southwest of Chicago. We've
been involved in breeding Labradors for over 20 years and are
constantly improving the desirable characteristics that are sought
in this breed. Our primary concern is producing healthy,
well-tempered, highly intelligent dogs suited as well for hunting as
for a family pet.
We search for the best quality studs in our area, all titled and
OFA certified. Our females are all OFA certified and are bred
on a limited basis. All pups are born in our home and receive
a lot of socialization from both of us and the other labs and cats
that we love and care for.
Our value as a breeder: We provide
all documentation of the vet check and a written 26 month guarantee
against hip dysplacia (if you choose to accept). You will also
receive copies of their pedigrees, AKC registration, pictures of
their parents, titles earned and health reports.
You can expect a healthy pup, one that is free of
hip dysplacia, and genetic eye disorders. The pup will have its dew
claws removed, first shots, vet report and worming.
Handling of Puppies and our Dogs: We
spend a minimum of 2 hours daily with our Dogs, socializing,
retrieving and monitoring their temperaments with the other dogs.
Our puppies are paper trained at 5 weeks and partly house broke at 7
weeks. We take great care in socializing our puppies and spend
time with them each day to assure a better
temperament when released into your home.
All of our dogs are very well-mannered and love
to retrieve. Retrieving is a part of their regimen.
