Temperament Testing


We help guide you in the selection of your puppy.  We don't choose a puppy for you.  But you are not alone in the selection of your new family member.  We specialize in "matching" puppies to their homes.  We use a combination of several methods when evaluating our Lab puppies.  Many of our puppies have gone to service and therapy dog homes.  It's important to us that we help you find the best potential match for your home, though all of our puppies have excellent temperament.

We use the Volhard puppy aptitude evaluation for the following:
Social attraction ~ Following ~ Restraint ~  Social dominance ~  Elevation dominance ~ Retrieving ~ Touch sensitivity ~ Sound sensitivity ~ sight sensitivity ~ Stability

Please fill out our online form, We will get back to you with information about upcoming litters

*Breeder reserves the right for 1st and 2nd pick male and 1st and 2nd pick female from every litter.


We have visitation rules and a health safety plan in place to protect our dogs and puppies

*We don't allow visitors until the puppies have had one set of shots (around 7-8 weeks old).

*Only depositors are allowed to come to our home and meet our dogs & puppies.  This happens when I have a puppy for you and the puppy is 8 weeks old and not earlier.

*Please don't visit a kennel, breeder, shelter, or petting zoo before coming to visit our puppies.  This is our home!  We want our dogs to remain safe from contagious disease.

*For the health and safety of the puppies please leave all pets at home when you come to visit us.
