We are a small scale breeder of AKC Labrador Retrievers located in Bemidji, Minnesota. We focus on producing top quality 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 clearancees, 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 OFA hips, OFA elbows, CERF, EIC, CNM, PRA, and RD/OSD prior to any breeding. Or we can provide verifiable proof that they are clear by parentage for EIC & CNM.

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 receive daily individual attention. We are continually fine-tuning and incorporating more into our extensive puppy program. We strive to give every puppy the best start possible so by the time they go to their new homes, each puppy should be well prepared for whatever direction their new family takes them.
