We are a small breeding kennel located about 50 miles southeast of Kansas City, MO. Our property is approximately 10 miles northwest of Warrensburg and we live within a half mile of Bill Eckett of Blackwater Retrievers.
Our goal is to produce quality Lab pups with the ability to meet or exceed their new owners' expectations, whether it be for field trials, hunt tests, hunting, etc. We only breed to Lab males that have achieved FC, AFC, or Master Hunter status and have the appropriate health clearances.
Our females all have OFA good or better hips and elbows, CERF clear, and CNM clear status. If any of our females are EIC carriers, we only breed to EIC clear males and have all pups tested at birth
We intend to run our females in AKC field trials and hunt tests and we now have more time to devote to this endeavor since we are retired
We have owned Labs continuously since 1969 when we purchased our first female pup Holly sired by NAFC-FC Guy's Bitterroot Lucky and out of Carr-Lab Spirit owned by Barbara Ornbaun.
