I have always loved Labrador retrievers. In 2011, I acquired Elsa, a very nicely bred American Field Lab. Elsa and I joined a Search and Rescue team. As I watched her learn and develop a desire and willingness to please, my love for the breed expanded even further. I feel that the Labrador retriever is the perfect "all-around" family dog and I developed a breeding program to attempt to provide families with a beautiful puppy with the greatest genetic advantage toward health and temperament.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my three children and participating in training and competing with the dogs.. My children enjoy being involved with the puppies, particularly my 15 year old daughter (pictured right). I have learned a great deal in regards to breeding and puppy rearing as a result of my past marriage to a veterinarian.
Although I do breed all colors of Labrador retriever, we feel that health and disposition are paramount to color.
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. I was appointed Chairman of the Council for Purebred Labrador Retrievers and served a one year period in 2015 and again in 2016. I also maintain membership in the Hunting Retriever Club (HRC). When I am not caring for puppies, I work as a substitute school teacher.
I was awarded the 2015 Breeder of Improved Health and Breeder of Improved Genetics awards by the Improvement Movement, which set goals for improved breeding standards among Labrador retriever breeders. Unfortunately, the organization is no longer active. However, we continue to strive for improvement in all aspects of our program.
