Puppy Culture 

We apply Jane Killion's Puppy Culture techniques to our breeding program.  It involves detailed puppy rearing from birth to 12 weeks and older.

💭 Prior to bringing a puppy home, we strongly encourage you to get familiar with Puppy Culture for a smooth transition from our home to yours.  You will learn about general training, potty training, socialization, biting, resource guarding, body handling, benefits of positive reinforcement, and how to set up an unsupervised puppy playpen.

Attention is the Mother

  • In part one of this video, our nine-week-old puppies demonstrate how to teach the two core concepts that attention is a behavior, and that distractions are cues for attention.​

  • In part two, filmed one week later, the puppies demonstrate advanced distraction work and specialized distraction exercises for different venues, including switching between “show” and “obedience” modes, and foundation for attention heeling.

When Pigs Fly

  • Not sure if your dog's impossible? Take this quiz:

  • Have you read every dog training book on the market, yet your dog still ignores you?

  • Have you taken your dog to class and the instructor hinted politely that you'd be better off with a different dog or a different breed of dog?

  • Would you like to do fun things with your dog but it's too humiliating to bring him out in public?

  • Are you tired of explaining to everyone how you can love such an "impossible" dog?

  • If you answered yes to these questions, we have good news. There's nothing wrong with your dog, and nothing wrong with you for loving him. Your dog can be well-behaved just like any other dog - When Pigs Fly!

Dilutes are known for skin and organ health issues.  Because we care about the long term health of the puppies we produce, we only support the ethical breeding of Labradors in the traditional colors of black, yellows (ranging from white to fox-red), and chocolates (from light to dark).  Dilutes, dilute carriers and other color variations are not acceptable for our breeding program.  
ALL of our dogs are Dilute Free.
