We intend to have several litters to finish out the year but have not done any breedings yet at this time.
As Labrador breeders, outstanding working dogs are our passion. Our focus is breeding stylish hunting gun dog that are intense in the field, yet quiet at home with the family. We strive for athletic dogs, bred to train and perform with excellence, with health clearance to support a long and healthy life. We believe in producing classic working labs from the best of today's performance pedigrees. Alongside this however, it is important to us to place our pups in homes that are right for them and our preference for placement is an working hunt test or gun dog home. If you are purchasing solely as a pet, you need to be fully aware that these pups are bred to be energetic working dogs, and while they are great with people, these pups will need a job to do daily and an outlet for their energy. In other words, you should fully expect a busy pup with energy that will need time and extensive training. 

Breeding: Our dogs come from exceptional American field trial and hunt test bloodlines, including National, Field/Amatuer, and Hunting Retriever Champion titles. You will not find a dog with significant show breeding in our kennel and this is because they are bred for their looks, and will not have the learning ability and athleticism that is required to be an efficient retriever. Our dogs not only hunt for us, but we have proven their abilities and high intelligence by earning some of the top retriever titles available in the hunt test arenas. 

Philosophy: Most of our breedings are done to top field titled stud dogs, who have pedigrees that back up their drive and learning ability.  Breeding is not a science though, and sometimes even in the best of retriever pedigrees, you can still have one that is more difficult to train, has a poor temperament, or has low bird drive. However, when one spends hours looking into and matching different pedigrees, and studying a dog's individual personality, the way they learn, etc, we become better informed to choose the cross that will produce the best results.

From planning and preparations, to puppy-rearing and finding good homes, each litter is an investment of our time, and we go to great lengths to provide you with the happy and healthy pup you're looking for. Your pup will come with life-time breeder support, for our commitment to our pups does not end when they leave our kennel. We are on call at all times should you have questions or concerns along the way; we would love to keep contact with you after you've taken your new puppy home as well, so that we too can share in the joy of watching them grow. Email them to us, or post them on our Facebook page! 

Guarantee: Our puppies come with a 26 Month written Hip, and Eye Guarantee, 1st shots, vet checked, AKC and/or UKC registration applications, and current deworming.  

Weight: While once in a while, one of our pups may reach up to 85 lb areas, we desire a more medium sized retriever, and our intention is for a dog averaging between the 55-75 lb range. 

Reservation: To reserve a puppy, we require a $200 deposit which is non-refundable. We accept payment online via Paypal, or through regular mail by Money Order or Cashiers Check. Cash only at pickup, or online payment with Paypal prior to pickup day.

Shipping: We highly recommend ground delivery services like The Gundog Express.  We prefer to use ground delivery services like this, since there are no temperature limits to work around, and they often are in a similar price range as an airline. The cost is dependent on their availability and schedule, and as you gan understand, there is a wide range depending on your location. As of 2022, they generally range around $350 in the Midwest, rising to $600-$800 going to the west coast or deep south. We book the best prices we can. 

Pickup: When each litter is born, we will select a pick up date approximately 7 weeks from then that each of the pups will need to be picked up on. If you are unable to come on that particular date(Or if your pup will be shipped), then the pup will be chosen for you based on the specifications that you are looking for in your pup. You may pick your puppy up at a later arranged time. 

Regarding Silver Labs: We do not support Silver labradors, and will not knowingly sell our dogs or puppies to anyone associated or supportive of silver labrador breeding.

"Ready did really good this weekend and we received our first two UKC Started ribbons!  
I watched some of the Seasoned tests, and I think with a little more work on blinds, that they would be no problem for Ready.  
I had a lot of fun at my first hunt test and am looking forward to going to some more."
