Our Nursery

If looking for a quality pure bred Labrador Retriever puppy we highly recommend coming out to visit our dogs and meet with us. We normally have a reservation list and suggest contacting us ahead of time to ensure availability.

grace_and_puppies5Having over 100 years of combined experience between the three of us in training, breeding, and showing, our ultimate goal is to produce healthy and fun loving Labradors that meet the breed standard.

The Labrador is a versatile breed because it is smart and naturally devoted to humans. This is why they are; great family pets, ideal for hunting, used as therapy dogs, exceptional service dogs such as drug detection and aiding the blind… the Labrador is a breed that offers us, humankind, the opportunity to better our own lives.

DSC_0011As smart as they are for trainability, their warm hearts and fun character make them all the more enjoyable.  These are just a few of the reasons we began and continue to breed the Labrador Retriever.

If you are thinking about a Labrador Retriever as your next pet, we welcome you to come and meet our guys and gals.

A NOTE ABOUT NON RECOGNIZED LABRADOR COLORS (AND MIXES):

We do not support breeding for traits not recognized in the breed standard; including silver, champagne or blue Labradors, not to mention various mixed breeds (Labradoodles).

These fads are being promoted by non-ethical kennels, typically looking to make money with no regard for long term goals in their programs.  They breed for the now, using the Labrador’s reputation to entice interest and sales.   Spinning tales and exaggerating facts such as promoting non-allergenic puppies or “best of both breeds”; even the statement of silver being a rare color is incorrect, since they’re easily found.

The only recognized colors are black, yellow and chocolate. Registering a non-recognized color or dilute color, such as silver, as a recognized color does not make it so. Example silver is registered as chocolate. According to the AKC Labrador standard however, it is a disqualification. We cannot advise strongly enough such colors are frowned on for valid reasons by those of us who remain committed to preserving the breed.  For example with the dilute gene there is often poor or no pigment which can cause skin cancer in an active outdoor dog. Genetics is a complicated topic and many articles have been written on it but suffice it to say there are many positive attributes to purebreds that do not follow through mixing breeds.  Puppy mills are very good at selling their ideas and therefore their wares, so buyer needs to be aware.
