About Us

We are located in Northern New Jersey.  We purchased our first Lab, a black male we named Baron, in 1980 and have been in love ever since!   We exhibit mostly in conformation but breed for dogs that exemplify all the outstanding characteristics of the Labrador and who would succeed in any venue, obedience, agility, field or service.  Most importantly, we hope they'll make the very best family companions.  All our dogs are house dogs, though they do "rotate" between the house and the kennel.....

Each breeding is carefully planned.  We only breed when we're planning to keep a new pup for ourselves.  We strive to breed good looking, healthy dogs with outstanding temperaments.  All our dogs are hip, elbow, heart and eye cleared as well as DNA tested for various known genetic disorders.  All puppies are placed on an AKC Limited Registration. They are vet checked, micro-chipped, will have had their first shot, been de-wormed and checked by an ophthalmologist before they go home.  We encourage our puppy families to stay in touch we love to hear about the dogs and hope to be a resource to their owners throughout their lives.

Nowadays, my daughter does most of the showing.  I'm very active in The Jersey Skylands Labrador Retriever Club, I've held a number of offices, President, Vice President and currently Secretary.  I also chair our Health Clinic every winter.   Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to know more about any of our dogs......

For many years we fed and recommended Orijen dog food, we are no longer feeding it, at least until more is known about DCM, we have decided to move all the dogs to Purina's ProPlan formulas.
