and are shown here to show the quality of our pups
Hi, I'm Cheryl Yoder, and I am glad you found us!
We have been raising English Labrador Retrievers for over 23 years. With an emphasis on raising puppies to the point that they will continue their education in Therapy work. We love the Labrador Retriever because of their calm and loving temperament which is perfect for all family types. Whether you just want a great dog to take with you everywhere you go or you are a family with special needs such as Autism or need a puppy to train for different therapies such as detecting or alerting you when someone's heart stops, Anxiety, PTSD, low blood sugar, the list just goes on and on, and the Lab is the perfect dog for all these things. Over the years we have placed many pups with families from Camp Pendleton and many families with the needs above. We raise the puppies in our home so they are around all the noises of a normal busy family. My husband has Alzheimer's and it's great to see him sitting and petting our dogs when he seems to be a little lost or confused. Another way we stand out from breeders is in our guarantee; we actually do the top 6 DNA tests specific to the Labrador Retriever. We do this, so you will know your dog will not get these genetic diseases. Along with x-rays for hips and elbows from the OFFA (Orthapedic Foundation for Animals Association), this type of guarantee is better than giving you a piece of paper that says you have two years if something should show up; why not just do the most common DNA tests now and rule those out! Just makes a lot of sense to us. The DNA tests we do are EIC (exercised indued collapse), Centronuclear and Degenerative Myopathy, Cystinuria, Hereditary Nasal Parakaratosis or HNPK and PRA-PRCD (for blindness). You will receive copies of all of these in your puppy packet along with the shot record which includes the dates the vaccines were given and stickers with the lot numbers to show your vet that they are not expired. In addition to the vaccine information you will also find the dates your puppy was dewormed and the name of the dewormer. We are not a breeding facility here in Oceanside, we do raise and train puppies so that they will be ready for further Therapy training..Many of the dogs on our site are ours, but many are not, they may be dogs from our past who have gone on to become great companions or there may be a litter in another town who's owners/or trainers want us to help get the word out that they have availability.
