Our family’s original love
for dogs began many years ago when we purchased our first “family”
dog, an Irish Setter puppy, shortly after our two oldest children
were born. A few years later we purchased a Labrador Retriever
puppy, and again our family fell in love!
that point on our family of twelve has always been home to either
a Setter or a Lab, usually both! We never thought that there
could be another breed of dog that possessed the qualities we

young children at home, but also extends to our adult children
starting their own families. All of our dogs are our family
pets and live a well cared for, well loved life with individual
attention in one of our homes.
We enjoy participating
in therapy work
with our dogs as well as in AKC
competition. We also, from time to time, enjoy casual hunting
with our dogs. When we rarely do breed a litter it is likely

(but also AKC registered) with many Champions behind them. Above

and form an unbreakable bond with their forever families.

in a room of our house that is designated and dedicated solely
to the needs of our dogs. (with a few human comforts as well)
All of our puppies are raised with early
stimulation and appropriate socialization.
We apply a conservative
vaccination schedule and wean all of our puppies to raw
food. We feel that this guarantees that our puppies are
sound in mind and body when they are ready to join their new
Please keep in mind -
of our puppies are spoken for in advance of their birth, often
well before we even breed our dogs. If you would like to be
considered for one of our future puppies, or be placed on our
waiting list for an upcoming litter, please let us know.
