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 reliability in fowl weather ... they are tremendous! What do we focus on in our dogs? We breed for unyielding drive in the field, paired with an amiable and happy temperament that places them equally as riverside fishing companions or top in World Championship dock diving labrador rankings.

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 and other Performance/Sports. We screen for good health such as hips, elbows, eyes, hearts, DNA tests for EIC, CNM and PRA. This includes our dogs, dogs we breed to, and we look for as many clearances in the pedigrees as possible. To be even more picky, 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 in selecting the best of the best. We love what we do and do it right.
