We are a small kennel located just north of San Antonio on the front porch of the Texas Hill Country. Have been raising, training, and showing Labrador Retrievers and Border Terriers for over 25 plus years. Our goal is to produce English style Labradors and sound temperment Borders that are healthy, sound, structurally correct, natural ability, free of genetic problems, and displays that great temperament for which the breed is known. We actively compete in conformation, obedience, Rally, Certified Therapy work, and hunt tests with our dogs. Our dogs are our family and spend their lives with us, in our home.
We whelp one to two litters a year. All puppies are born and raised in our home, where they are members of our family until they become part of your family. Our puppies are well socialized and better prepared for training. Our dogs are registered with the American Kennel Club and all puppies are sold on Limited Registration unless other arrangements are met. Our Labradors and Border Terriers are foremost Family Pets, Conformation, Certified Therapy Dogs, Hunting Companions and Performance Competitors.
All of our adult breeding Labradorsand Borders have OFA clearances and yearly eye exams – CERF. All of our puppies are whelped and raised in the house where not only will they be around different noises, but will be started on potty training. Our puppies before leaving will have their first round of shots, wormed, dew claws removed and be examined by our veterinarian before leaving for their new homes.
We believe a dog should have titles at both ends of their names. We breed a litter, hoping to keep one or two puppies that will be good enough to continue our strong line, and go onto the show ring as well as run in hunting tests, compete in the obedience and rally ring and to help others in their rehabilitation through canine therapy work.
