Why did you become a breeder?
I grew up with Labrador Retrievers, love the breed. My husband and I bought our first Labrador in 1996, Chelsea. We joined the Canadian Kennel Club, did some obedience and at 6 months she received her Novice Obedience title. We decided to show her and attained her Canadian Championship. We were hooked then and we loved the breed. We met other breeders along the way and some became great mentors. We became very interested in the genetics and health of the breed and wanted to make a positive contribution to this beautiful breed. The most satisfying of all is placing our dogs into the hands of a loving family, knowing their lives will be enriched with the new addition.
Why did you choose to breed Labrador Retrievers?
Growing up with Labradors was the inspiration to stay with the breed as a family pet, obedience dog and showing this incredible, smart breed. My husband did some field work and we really enjoyed the versatility of the breed. They really have it all: trustworthy and loyal, very trainable for obedience, agility, hunting, therapy dogs; just an all-round great family pet. They are easy to live with and require little maintenance.
