English type labradors have been an important part of our family and lives for the last 40 years. Along with showing, hunting and training, we breed and raise our Labs to be good, sound family members, with the sweet and gentle temperament Labs should exhibit.

Great care goes into selecting the appropriate stud dog for our girls. All clearances for both parents will be available, including OFA for hips and elbows, EIC for Exercise Induced Collapse (this applies to hunting dogs) and CERF eye clearances.

With Trey's litters, we discovered and began practicing Early Neurological Stimulation techniques, with amazing results. These techniques are time-intense: Every day, we spend special one-on-one time with each pup, from the time they are born.

In addition, each pup takes turns sitting in our laps during TV time at night, and all play in our yard when they are older and able to move around.

Pups are exposed to sounds such as vacuum cleaners to accustom them to unexpected and loud noises, and have games to encourage problem solving and to gain confidence, all with astonishing results.

The treatment and care pups receive during this most important formative period of their lives shapes their personalities and stays with them forever.

Relle was produced in Trey's 2010 litter, and has fulfilled the amazing promise she showed as a pup.
