We are a small Labrador Retriever breeder located in South Central Wisconsin. Our goal is to breed and train dogs who are capable of being "titled at both ends" and loving/cherished companions who are both physically and mentally sound. Since we only breed occasionally (less than 1 litter per year) we are happy to share information about the breed without a "sales pitch" and to share photos of our beloved Labradors. You can learn about each of our Labs by clicking on each one's name on the Labrador link above.
Even though they are very popular and have been the number one breed in number of AKC registrations for more than 10 years, Labrador Retrievers are not for everybody. Please read this article to help you decide if a Lab may fit into your family.
PLEASE NOTE: Labrador Retrievers, according to the breed standard written by the National club (LRC, Inc. -- www.thelabradorclub.com), Labs have only three accepted coat colors. Those colors are black, yellow and chocolate which can have many different shades but these shades do NOT include silver as there is no "silver" or "blue" gene in pure-bred Labrador Retrievers. There is no such thing as a "polar white" puppy or a "silver" Lab! A "polar white" Lab would fall under the definition of the color yellow. A reputable breeder who has an occasional Lab with more white than acceptable, brindling or a silver-appearing chocolate will NOT try to sell you the puppy as show or breeding quality and will ask you to spay/neuter the puppy. Beware of those trying to get more money for a "rare color" of dog, they are not ethical breeders. For more information on genetic possibilities for coat color please see this wonderful web site on Coat Color in Labrador Retrievers. There is a second site that is also very informative about in correct Coat Color if you wish to learn more.
Labrador/Poodle mixes (sometimes called "Labradoodles") are NOT an AKC or UKC recognized breed. Our National club has a statement about these on their web site HERE. Contrary to what some of their producers will tell you, there is no guarantee that they will be "hypo-allergenic" as they can be born with one of at least 3 different coat types. People with allergies to dogs may be allergic to these mixed breed dogs as well. Please do not be fooled into thinking this is a legitimate breed and paying more for a mixed breed than you would for a good quality purebred dog! If you want to rescue a dog there are many wonderful Lab rescues that frequently do get in Labs mixed with other breeds and you will pay far less than the price of a "designer dog" that someone is trying to pass off as a "pure-bred" dog.
