True Labrador Retriever temperament is as much a hallmark of the breed as the “otter” tail. The ideal disposition is one of a kindly, outgoing, tractable nature; eager to please and non-aggressive towards man or animal. The Labrador Retriever has much that appeals to people; its gentle ways, intelligence and adaptability make it an ideal dog.

We are located in the heart of California’s Central Valley. We are a small family operated kennel breeding family oriented dogs for fifteen years. Being in a farming family with lots of acreage for a dog to run on and a love for hunting at a young age, I was constantly on the lookout for the perfect companion and working dog. The Labrador Retriever was the answer.
All of our puppies are lovingly raised by our entire family. With four children in second grade-freshman year of college, the puppies are well played with and handled from the moment they are born. The pups are raised indoors for the first three weeks before moving to a temperature controlled whelping kennel outdoors where they have room to run and play. The puppies have on multiple occasions been known to be seen wrapped up in baby blankets, being pushed around in doll strollers, or been brought into the house during homework time or carried in sweatshirt pockets (by the older ones of course)! Our children actively take part in the care and raising of the puppies, with each having specific tasks involved with the puppies and parents.
Our love for the Labrador Retriever gave us the desire to produce a dog with a great temperament and a healthy genetic background. The overall health, temperament, and conformation of each individual dog is taken into consideration before each breeding. We try to compliment on dogs weaknesses with another’s strength to produce the best possible puppy. Keeping in mind that there is no perfect dog out there, we take into consideration every aspect of each individual dog. One dog may have a beautiful conformation, a very desirable temperament, and clear eyes but be weaker in the hips or elbows. Through conversations with our veterinarian and using our own experiences from the past, we would try to match that dog with one that is very strong in the hip/elbow area. Keep in mind that genetic testing is not a guarantee that the puppies will have perfect hips, elbows, heart or eyes, but that there is less chance that the puppies will be affected.

A quick peek inside our puppy whelping room, where are puppies are raised for the first three weeks or so of their lives. They need a temperature controlled space, since when they are first born they cannot regulate their body temperatures on their own.
