Thank you for visiting.
Announcing our *hope* for April 2018 Pups - available June 2018.
We took our gal Shadow up to Iowa on Friday February 16th for a rendezvous with Griz from Marshaltown.
Shadow is *very* preggers, plump as a pumpkin and eating like a horse...
This is the same pairing as our extremely successful 2017 litter and we are anticipating similar results with Pups available in June 2018.
The Shadow / Griz litter from 2017 produced one of the best, if not *the* best, litters of Chocolate Labradors in the country for genetic health, intelligence, disposition, waterfowl retrieving & upland game pointing, (In our humble opinion) .
We are of the belief that this years litter will be of equal quality.
As the saying goes, "don't pick the pup, pick the litter.
Note: Griz and his Kennel, Hunters Point Kennel, of Marshalltown, IA, are featured in the February 2018 'Covey Rise' magazine article about 'Pointing Labradors' - available at Barnes and Noble if you would like to read up on their amazing breeding program and one of the very best Pointing Lab Kennels in the world.
P.S. Link above is only to the Magazine Preview, if you wish to read the full article it will cost you $12 at Barnes and Noble - but well worth it.

Shadow is the granddaughter of all time field champ "Barracuda Blue" one of the most highly regarded Chocolate Labrador lineages in the United States or World.
Shadow has OFA certification of hip health and is EIC clear (does not carry the gene associated with Exercise Induced Collapse).
Shadow's June of 2017 litter with Griz is her second litter.
Since both Griz and Shadow are certified EIC Clear, then all of their pups in this litter will also be EIC 'clear' (non-carrying).
Pups are AKC register-able, come with a health guarantee, have their dew-claws clipped, have been Vet-checked, micro-chipped, genetically tested by the University of Minnesota to confirm EIC 'clear' status and have had their first shots, worming, etc.
Family raised in our 'Kitchen Kennel', your new family member shall be well socialized, healthy and eager to make your acquaintance.
