We are a family-run and family-oriented Labrador Retriever & Golden Retriever breeder who show primarily in the AKC conformation ring and breeds for the purpose of improving our own lines. The goal for each and every litter is for us to keep at least one puppy as a show prospect. We do not breed just to have a litter and sell those puppies.
We are members of the Labrador Retriever Club (national parent club for the AKC) and the Northern Ohio Labrador Retriever Club. Judy has served many club roles including current Board Member of NOLRC and President for numerous years of the former Lake Erie Labrador Retriever Club and Aric served as a board member of the former LELRC & is currently a member of the Golden Retriever Club of America.
We raise, train, and breed our dogs with our primary focus on only breeding for the betterment of our current breeding program which includes correct structure, temperament, and health. We enjoy our dogs as family pets first and then as show dogs. Our sons help with the raising and training of our dogs. We purchased our first "registered" Lab in 1999 and we were hooked. Aric always dreamed of having a Golden so in 2016, Aric's dream became a reality.
Animals have always been part of our daily life and will always be part of our daily life, God willing. The Labrador Retriever and Golden Retrievers are such fun and lovable breeds that add so much to our lives. Who could ask for anything more?
Our puppies have gone on to become AKC Champions and AKC Grand Champions as well as wonderful retrievers, service dogs, therapy dogs, obedience and agility dogs, family companions, and beautiful couch potatoes. Our puppies are raised within our home using the protocols from Puppy Culture and their parents have their OFA Hip, Elbow, Eye, and Cardiac clearances. Labradors also are tested for PRA, EIC, CNM, CT, HNPK, MCD, RD/OD1 & SD2, and Dilute testing. Goldens are tested for prcd-PRA, PRA1, PRA2, Ichthyosis, & DM. Please see For Sale for puppy availability.
In Labradors, we dilute test because no dilute factors of silver, champagne, or charcoal will be part of our breeding program since the dilute gene is not part of a true purebred Labrador. Much to the dismay of dilute breeders who claim that this dilute gene is rampant and widespread throughout all bloodlines, my dogs have all come back as dilute free!
