Our puppies are raised and live in our home. We spend a great deal of time
with them daily, as well as keeping everything clean and nice. It is labor
intensive. We also health test for OFA hips, elbows, eyes, EIC, CNM and
PRA/RD/OSD so as not to produce affected puppies. We keep on top of new
testing as it becomes available. We post most clearances on the OFA site but
if not there, we put copies on each dog's page, along with registered name
Since 1998, we have trained, hunted and competed our Labs in AKC Hunting
Tests and Field Trials, we have hands on experience, we have seen dogs
WORK. We don't just breed paper and titles. We know the dogs.
Temperament, looks, health, are just as important as working ability. We try
to "have it all" with our dogs. We aren't new, we aren't splashy and we aren't
a flash in the pan either. This is our original website, warts and all, from our
first dogs to our current dogs.
Shipping for our working dogs is available on a limited basis via air using
Delta VIP service, direct flights only, out of MSP (Minneapolis/St. Paul). Some
ground transport options are also available, such as Bittersweet Pet
Transport. We do prefer people to fly/drive in and meet us and our dogs in
person. "Pet only" puppies will not be shipped.
We do not do silvers or any other dilute, we never knowingly have, never
will. We test our Labs now for the dilute gene to make sure we aren't getting
it snuck into our dogs.
Check out our About Us page to learn more about our program and see
videos of our puppies and home.
