My first Labrador was purchased as a family member for our growing young family! We purchased our Labrador from Cinders Labradors! Our entire family loved our best friend, and wanting to have a well behaved family member, I became involved with the local dog training club. I soon was bitten by the show bug, and began competing in obedience events. As I learned more about this wonderful breed through educational seminars, joining local Labrador clubs, attending shows and talking with established breeders, I was inspired to begin competition in show and hunting events too!
I contacted Anastasia Alston at DeSoleil Labradors, and a friendship and wonderful mentorship was begun. I have been fortunate enough to have wonderful co-owns with DeSoleil Labradors over the years, and the trust, encouragement, knowledge and friendship has been invaluable. I have learned so very much from Anastasia over the years, and also from many other wonderful breeders whom I now call friends!

Do my labs have the natural drive to hunt and retrieve? Absolutely, and they LOVE it! I emphasize on my labs having fun in the field, without the use of electronic or force training. My training in obedience enables my labs to have the drive to retrieve
naturally while remaining in control and thus being an enjoyable field companion! We are learning this sport together and loving it.

Responsible breeders strive to have proper temperament, free of problems ranging from aggression to shyness to hyperactive not trainable dogs. Responsible breeders will perform health testing on their labs including genetic testing for eye problems, hip dysplasia, elbow abnormalities, heart defects, and a range of other tests that can help screen for known diseases that affect the breed. Responsible breeders will know the bloodlines and have pedigrees and health clearances available, will be active in the various activities involving the dogs, including but not limited to being active members of various dog clubs. Responsible breeders will also be active in showing the dogs according to their personal interests which may include breed ring, hunt training and the various performance activities like obedience, rally, dock diving, farm dog, agility and fast cat to name a few. Responsible breeders will be knowledgeable about raising puppies and the prenatal testing needed on the female. They will be knowledgeable about the vital neonatal period, essential proper socialization including exposure to calm gentle human contact, and a wide variety of noises and experiences. Responsible breeders will raise the puppies in the home. They will evaluate the individual puppies on a continuing basis so they can guide you to a puppy that is best for your life style. They will be able to show you how to test the puppies so the best lifetime matches can be made. Responsible breeders will gladly let you see and interact with the dam and other Labradors in their home. Do the puppies seem healthy, active, engaging to visitors and look clean and well cared for. Responsible breeders will have a program whether formally purchased or developed through the years, of milestones of development the puppies should reach and be exposed to each week. Responsible breeders will have a puppy questionnaire required to be filled out prior to any serious discussion. Responsible breeders will have a contract signed by them and the buyer of one of their puppies. This contract will have a limited registration, unless formally agreed to prior, that has a mandatory spay/neuter contract. Does the written contract guarantee against congenital health.

Raised in our home our Labradors are first and most important family members! If chosen to be bred, will be only , if determined to be a good representation of the breed standard, and after all the health testing and OFA clearances are obtained and passed. Careful consideration in choosing the appropriate stud dog to strive for a litter of puppies that will positively add to our line and have the temperament and structural soundness to be a excellent representation of the Labrador breed. We believe that a Labrador should be able to perform the job that they were originally bred to do. I strive to find a stud dog that will complement my female while attempting to improve on her. Keeping the natural hunting drive and instinct is vitally important to us, and carefully adding bloodlines that will accomplish this. We also feel that there is no reason that a great hunting dog can not also win in the breed ring, and we attempt to bring in awesome stud dogs that have wonderful temperament, proven soundness and gorgeous Labrador structure.
There are only 3 accepted colors for labradors: black yellow and chocolate! Silver is not a accepted color and research has shown that these silver dogs have been crossed with a Weimaraner to produce the silver color in Labradors! To learn more about the temperament, looks and what a Labrador has been bred to perform, go to AKC.com and look up the Labrador retriever.
Are you prepared for a Labrador puppy??…..Honestly ask yourself these questions!
Become informed about the breed, and contact your breeder or a professional with questions and issues before they become a problem.

All our litters are carefully planned and raised in our home. Being a Neonatal Nurse, I know the extreme importance of early development and how that will affect and influence your entire life. This is not limited to humans!
All our puppies will go home with current vaccines, de-wormed, veterinary checkup, microchipped, AKC registration, bag of puppy food, toy, the Puppy Culture beginner package, copy of both parents pedigrees and clearances.
Our puppies are raised using the Puppy Culture System, which was started by Jane Killion and now involves a entire team of veterinarians, behavioral specialists and authors. The Puppy Culture is an entire system of early development starting with the dam prior to birth of the puppies and each week of the puppies development through 12 weeks and beyond. There are also additional instructional training videos and digital library covering a wide range of topics including but not limited to proper fitness exercises according to the puppies age, how to get your puppy ready for the show ring with Killer Stacks, teaching attention and the importance of positive experiences with Firsts! All my puppy families go home with the beginner package from the Puppy Culture System.
Our puppies also will be placed and sold on Limited Registration: This means the dog is registered but litters produced by that dog are ineligible for registration. In addition a limited dog can not compete in conformation shows. It is eligible, however, to be entered in any other licensed event, including obedience, tracking, field trials, herding, luring, fast cat, dock diving etc.
Any Full Registration puppies sold would only be done with a prearranged prior situation after considerable thought, evaluation of the puppy, complete vetting of the potential show home and consultation with the stud owner, and other conditions met. The final decision of whether to do this would remain with Dunluce Labradors.
All potential puppies owners are requiredto fill out a puppy questionnaire prior to consideration. Understand that a contract that stipulates an age appropriate spay/neuter contract and health guarantee will be required to be signed at the time of the puppy going home. .
