Labrador retrievers: Yellow, White & Chocolate puppies San Diego
THE TRUTH ABOUT PET FOOD
Current pet food regulations allow manufacturers to use ingredients that you would never knowingly feed your pet, like feet, intestines, chemical preservatives even road kill, plus other things that are hard to digest. I truly believe this is why dogs only live 10 - 12 years. I also believe this is why dogs are dying of Cancer and have diseases like Diabetes. Click on our page âFeeding your petâ for more information on keeping your dog healthy, living longer and away from the Veterinarian's office.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Faith, Love and Hope, but the greatest of these is LOVE

We, the Yoder's are a family of 7 & 8 who consider our dogs family members. We love our dogs and are dedicated to the breed standard of the English Labrador Retriever. We specialize our small breeding program by our extensive socialization program with the puppies, training of our adult dogs and our unique natural feeding and raising of all of our dogs. We only have a couple of litter each year so when you see them listed here don't hesitate get on our waiting list.
Our extensive socialization program consists of raising puppies that are bonded to humans from the first moments of life, no cages, house raised,
held like newborn babies constantly. We have a great reputation for calm, intellegent and loving dogs that are perfect for everyone, from a hunting dog to a service dog for an autistic child, to bomb sniffing dogs. We introduce our dogs from the time they can roam outside to all numbers of things from the swimming pool to potty training, crate training etc... Our puppies are introduced to all the strange and common noises around a family from the vaccum to the coffee grinder, my son's drumming and loud rock'n roll music to my husbands chain saw etc...
We believe a well socialized puppy makes the best adult companion. We can refer you to puppy classes, but making your lab a member of your family including him in your daily routine is what will make the best friend you are looking for, consistancy is the key, all labs want is to do what you want them to and spend time with you.
Our nutrition program is of the utmost importance to us. We truly believe we are what we eat. In the past the dog foods were from human left overs, in fact many "good" brands that you pick up at the pet store have fillers like corn and byproducts don't buy them, I believe this is why our dogs die at only 10 - 15 years old. We feed our dogs Life's Abundance you can order it through our website and it will be delivered to your front door, at the same price at those other "good" brands, it is a dry kibble, we don't add any soft food; becides the home delivery what I like most about this food is the wholesome chicken, brown rice and catfish plus the four (4) different types of acidophilus, (the healthy bacteria found in yogurt) . We also supplement with fresh fruits and vegetables, check out our " Health of your Puppy" page for the right vegies and fruits.
We also only use the minimum of pesticides on and around our dogs, this may be one reason
some dogs get cancer and other strange afflictions. We don't feed our dogs pesticides and we use less than the recommended amounts of flee and tick "protection". Our methods of "protection" include baths and diatomatious earth, natural products to kill insects. Dawn liquid dish soap is a wonderful shampoo to kill fleas safetly, leave on 5 minutes then rinse.
