I started in Labrador Retrievers in 1982 with the acquisition of my first dog, a wonderful yellow male named Pal. He was going to be taken to the animal shelter in the morning because his breeder could not sell his last remaining puppies. My family and I went and got those pups late at night, a yellow male and a yellow female. We placed the female and decided to keep the male, and the rest, as they say, is history. Pal had a wonderful temperament and was very sound. I trained him in 4-H class and we went on to win many awards. Pal taught me a lot about Labradors and I made many wonderful contacts through him.
My breeding philosophy is to strive to breed the highest quality dogs possible and prove the quality of my breeding stock by showing them in AKC conformation shows in an effort to obtain their Championship. All of my breeding stock is OFA certified, free of hip and elbow dysplasia, DNA tested for PRA, EIC and HNPK, in addition to having their eyes cleared of genetic defects.
