Why Pick a Labrdogs Puppy.

We are a small breeder who put our pups and babies first.  We treat everyone like family.

What makes us different.

The most notable difference is how our babies are raised.  We raise our babies in the middle of our lives and start working with the babies to create pups who are well adjusted family members.  We start potty training our babies and teaching them to respect the human family through basic obedience long before they are ready to leave the nest.

American vs. English.

We produce a good mix of American and English features.  The American Lines were bred to be smaller, thin, streamline, fetching machines.  While the English lines were bred to be large boned, stocky, and pretty in the ring.  They are the same breed, there is no separate breed based on features.

 

Picking up your Puppy.

A lab puppy should NOT be taken away from its litter mates before 8-10 wk's of age.  Wisconsin says all puppies are to stay with their litter until 7 wk's of age.  The extra week makes a huge difference in the lessons they learn from the dam as well as the litter.  Namely the nipping.  

Check out E-Updates for more about the happenings here and more about the breedings we are involved in.

The Labrador comes in three colors.  There is Black, Chocolate and Yellow.  Yellows can be anything from snowy white to a deep fox red color.  Yellows are the only color that show light colored "wings" on their shoulders.  This is normal.  There is no gene for the dilution of colors found in the Labrador coat genetics to get other colors.

Sometimes we breed looking for specific coat colors and when doing so without the genetic coat color test we can only guess based on what genetic colors they should carry based on their pedigree.  Black is the most dominant color and will always be available in coat genetics as long as one parent carries the Black gene.  Chocolates come from either a parent who shows the chocolate gene or carries the chocolate gene, much like our very own Cole who carries the Chocolate coat gene.  And Yellows despite appearing to be the most dominant in colors is actually the most recessive coat color genetically.  Without both parents having the yellow coat color gene you will not get a yellow puppy, but could get a pup who carries the yellow gene if bred to parents where only one parent is a carrier.  This is much like our very own breeding between May and Cole.  Dispite May being Yellow and carries the chocolate gene, No black pigment gene bred to Cole who is  a Black coated lab who carries the chocolate coat gene.  This breeding produced 75% black coated puppies while the other 25% were chocolate pups.

Female labs are usually smaller than the male weighing in at about 55-70 pounds while the males run 65-80 pounds.  Anything over 100 pounds is considered obese or a major fault.  While Labs of today are being bred to be larger and built like a brick house this is not of AKC standard.  

Labs tend to shed their fur coats twice a year or regularly if you are in moderate temperature climates.  A labs coat is usually short and straight with a broad tail that will clear a coffee table in one swipe.  The coat is nearly waterproof  which helps insulate them while swimming in cold waters during waterfowl season.

A labs temperament is very important.  They are overall a well rounded breed that make superior pets, hunters, as well as service dogs.  They will retrieve until the cows come home so be ready with toys that will wear the pup out before your arm is tired.  If you are looking for a well rounded puppy who would be an amazing pet as well as a hunter in the field or by the lake side you will want to find a pup who has not been breed with just hunting on the brain as these pups can take more work to calm down to be a part of family life.  A lab wants to please you and will do everything they can to understand what you desire of them.  Puppies started early with basic obedience will be your best friend and easy to train down the road.  A lab is easy going with strangers and with early socialization you will have a very social adult who wants to be with you and your friends.

How long have we been breeding?

We started out breeding in 2003.    Our goal is to produce well rounded, family pets who can work in the field or become service dogs as well as companion pets.

Life expectancy of a lab.

A lab is expected to live 12-13 year and have been known to live as old as 16-17 yrs with good medical care.  Labs are generally a healthy breed with few major problems.
