We are a quality breeder of AKC Labrador Retrievers located in Bemidji, Minnesota. We focus on producing the best all around Lab puppies from champion Field Bred and Hunt Test bloodlines that are healthy and free of hereditary disorders. Our dogs are selected for their natural hunting instincts, desire to please, intelligence, versatility, gentle temperaments, ability to compete in hunt tests and field trials, train-ability, pedigree, health clearances, and attractive physical features.
We take pride in our dogs and with our careful research and selection processes, our puppies should satisfy the most challenging buyer. Our labs are bred to be working dogs and have the potential to excel in any direction. They are also bred to have wonderful dispositions and make great family companions. All of our dogs live in our home and are part of our family. We actively use them for upland and waterfowl hunting, and have started running them in AKC Hunt Tests. We are firm believers in doing everything we can to produce healthy puppies. Each of our dogs are tested for official OFA hips, OFA elbows, OFA eyes (formerly CERF now referred to as CAER), EIC, CNM, PRA, and RD/OSD prior to any breeding. If they have not been tested directly we can provide verifiable proof that they are clear by parentage of EIC & CNM. We guarantee that we will never produce affected puppies of EIC, CNM, PRA or RD/OSD.
We are not a puppy mill. We focus on quality and not quantity and believe in having a personal touch. All of our puppies are born and raised in our home and are thoroughly socialized. We LOVE our puppies and it shows in their care. We will only breed litters when we can guarantee that each puppy will receive daily individual love and attention. Our puppy program is extensive and comprehensive, yet we are continually fine-tuning and looking at ways to incorporate more. At a bare minimum this program includes: early neurological stimulation (called ENS or Biosensor), early scent introduction (ESI), introduction to crates, car rides, birds or birdwings, gunfire from a distance, water (weather permitting), outdoor adventures in different types of environments, daily loud noises, introduction to potty training and lots of socialization with adults, kids and other animals. We strive to give every puppy the best start possible. By the time they are ready to go to their new homes at 8 weeks of age, each puppy should be well prepared for whatever direction their new family takes them.
Our very first litter was in 2009 and we took a short hiatus from
breeding until 2013. Since resuming, we have had tremendous success with
our very limited number of litters. To date, our puppies collectively
have earned multiple hunt test titles, a QAA status, Qualifiying JAMs,
Derby JAMS, Derby Reserve JAMs and one was the youngest dog in Minnesota
to ever become Certified in Advanced Area Search. The majority of our
puppies have gone to homes where they live as part of the family and have proven themselves as exceptional hunting-working-competition dogs.
