We at Yoder's Kingdom Shores Labradors understand that sometimes we want to purchase and feed our pets items that we see at the store while we are shopping for our own families. Read the labels and do not feed your family or your pets foods or treats made in foreign countries like China. Check out our articles for your information below - we try to keep you up to date on recalls and other food related concerns. Thank you to all our puppy families who help keep us up to date on health issues.Remember Life's Abundance is made in the USA and shipped directly to your front door - safe & natural!
While your puppy has been in our home, here at Yoder Labradors, we have gone to great lengths to ensure his or her health and social development. After your puppy leaves us, we no longer have control of the environment or conditions in which he will be living. We care deeply for this little life and we want to be of service to you for the life of your dog. It is our hope that we can bring you information which will help you in many different areas. Always feel free to get back in touch with us over the years; we look forward to hearing how our little ones are doing and always enjoy your photos!
While these are helpful hints on caring for your puppy, it should be understood that we are not experts in this field and any questions should always be referred to qualified veterinarians.
After many years of searching, we have found qualified veterinarians, in fact if you choose to use Dr. Pearson she will not charge you an office visit but you must say that you were referred by Yoder Labradors
This is the style crate you will need to make potty training a breeze, if you are consistant it should only take 2 weeks. 20 x 13 x 11 are the dimentions of the
crate below, its a small kitten crate
If you need to go out and cannot take puppy with you, she is too young to leave outside unattended and you don't want her to be in the small crate for over a couple of hours during the day, you may try this Pet Yard below used in a circle or attached to something in your home that would allow you to use a wall of your home and the pet yard spread out in a half moon shape. Inside you could put the small crate with the door secured ajar, the potty tray with wood shavings and her food/water dishes, play toys antlers, kongs etc.
ANOTHER OPTION THAT I USE MYSELF IS THIS BLACK WIRE CRATE - I PUT IT NEAR MY OFFICE DESK AND DURING THE DAY THE PUPPY COULD HAVE FULL USE OF THE AREA AS LONG AS YOU ARE SITTING THERE AND WILL HEAR YOUR PUP WHINE IF SHE NEEDS TO GO OUT, BUT IF YOU NEED TO LEAVE YOU WOULD HAVE TO USE THE DIVIDER THAT COMES WITH IT SO THE PUP WILL ONLY HAVE BARELY ENOUGH ROOM TO TURN AROUND. THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT, IF YOUR PUPPY HAS ROOM ENOUGH TO PO OR PEE AND WALK AWAY FROM IT SHE WILL, IF SHE HAS ONLY A LIMITED SPACE TO TURN AROUND AND SHE TAKES UP MOST OF THAT SPACE SHE WILL HOLD IT.
CRATES AND CONTAINMENT AREAS
When I use this type of crate for a puppy or an adult dog that i get to have inside I will put a quilt or something like that over it so it looks nice in the living room.

Below is the tray to hold the wood shavings
Below is the Dawn Dish Soap we recommend for getting rid of fleas,
You wet the dog completely then work up a lather over the entire body, staying away from eyes. Leave on 10 minutes all the fleas will be dead just brush out the stubborn ones or use a spray of water. The other shampoo is only for yellow or chocolate, black dogs as it may stain white pups yellow it is all natural cedar wood, cinnamon and clove - smells like Christmas. I would use the same directions for this shampoo 10 min and the fleas should be dead.
YODER LABRADORS DETAILED INFORMATION LETTER
With this letter, we hope to answer many of your frequently asked questions. We would also love to hear from you as well so please don’t hesitate to call or email anytime.
No one chooses a puppy until the day they go home because you deserve to choose a pup that fits your family. When puppies are so young you don’t get a chance to see much of their personality or temperament. After the ultrasounds and pregnancy is confirmed we will start accepting deposits, the deposit is $500.When this deposit is received this will determine your pick order. The deposit is nonrefundable, it goes towards the price of the puppy, but if we cannot provide you with a healthy pup of the gender you have asked for it will of course be refunded 100%. If you just change your mind because you have found another puppy that is ready sooner we will keep your deposit. Any deposit for other specific reasons will be considered and may be used on another litter in the future. All our puppies are sold with limited registration, if you decide later that you may want to breed we are open to discuss that when your pup has turned two years old. We will sometimes start a preliminary wait list, it will not affect pick order or cost anything. If you would like to be on the paid waiting list after the ultrasound you may drop off the deposit at our home, use Venmo.com of course cash is always the preferred method, and a must when your final payment is on go home day, we will not accept checks at that time. We do offer a 10% discount for active and retired Military, police officers and firefighters.
Our pure white pups are $3000.00, all others are $2500.00. except when one or both of the parents are Champions themselves, then the cost is $3000. Our adult dogs have or will have certifications for hips and elbows from the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals Association shortly after they turn two years old. We also do all of the DNA tests which are breed specific so we do all the DNA tests that are specific to the Labrador Retriever, as set forth by our industry which we do as our guarantee to you. Your pup will not have these diseases. This is your guarantee rather than waiting the old 2 years for one of the possibly common gene problem we do the tests prior to breeding the parents. We do take a lot of consideration and study when it comes to choosing our breeding pairs and we do not line breed which is breeding back to others in the same family.
We remove dewclaws on all our puppies, give a parvovirus shot at 3 weeks and the first set of a 5-way vaccine at 8 weeks. We administer 4 deworming’s with the broad-spectrum dewormer such as Pyrantel Pamoate and Safeguard. We do have further information on our website on the “Care of Your New Puppy” page which you or any dog owner will find very educational, specifically “your puppy and the first few nights”.
We do want to keep in touch especially those families who cannot come and visit every week so please feel free to email often and ask lots of questions so we may get to know each other. We will be here for the life of your pet for questions and referrals to different dog-related situations. This is a relationship not just a purchase you will be making. We would like you to do a little research in regards to the food you choose to feed your dog. On our website, you will notice we sell Life’s Abundance dog food, this is the food we feed all our dogs from puppies to seniors. We highly encourage everyone to stay with this food for the life of your pet. This quality food is a dry kibble which is shipped from the manufacturer to your front door, no warehouses rancid old food. We are expecting our pets to live 15 - 20 years now with proper care and feeding. We know your pet will have great health his whole life when you feed this quality dog food and the NuVet Immune Supplement along with the bone and joint supplement from the NuVet
Company. Our first lines from our yellow/white pups lived to 16 and 17 years old
We have many owners who would be very happy to speak with you along with many older ones on our testimonials page. We have been breeding here In Oceanside for over
20 years. We have also fed this food and immune supplement and the bone and joint supplement for the last 10 – 12 years.
When you are looking at potential puppies to purchase make sure you see the certifications for good hips and elbows because this is the minimum a reputable breeder should do, sometimes the radiologist have been wrong and the dogs turn out great, but we are using this as our guarantee to you so we want proof for you. Our parent’s hips and elbows are x-rayed to make sure they have the best joints possible for breeding and that the puppies they produce have a greater advantage for a long and healthy life. We are a small hobby breeder and you will never see our puppies in cages. We use only the minimum amount of pesticides to protect our dogs against outdoor pests like fleas and mosquitoes. We try to stay with organic and non-carcinogenic pesticides like the microscopic shell powder, diatomaceous earth. We also use clove, cedar wood and cinnamon oil shampoos and kennel sprays. We believe that pets coming into contact with pesticides or the feeding of these pesticides, (flee, ticks, heartworm meds) is leading to cancer and many other diseases along with early death prior to 12 or 13 years of age.
I’m not going to tell you not to use these, you just have to decide for yourselves, if you’re dealing with a major flea outbreak in your area then use what your vet would recommend, not the drops at the local pet store. If you live next to a lagoon with a lot of
mosquitoes you should talk to your Vet about heartworm prevention.
Yoder Labradors has a program where we begin training of the puppies. We have a desensitization program where we work with each puppy individually. This includes human bonding, potty training, crate training and swimming. We have started a new program in the warmer months where we invite the whole family into our pool and have the puppy swim to them, it’s a great bonding process. Picking up the puppies and holding them daily is very important to human bonding. Our puppies come into contact with all ages of people, different types of animals and noisy machines for complete socialization. We encourage our families to come visit every week to play as much as possible with all the puppies.
I also want to stress that in accordance with UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, spaying and neutering of your pet prior to full growth (2Years) will be detrimental to the development of bones and joints because you would be removing the organs which produce the hormones necessary for proper growth. Yoder Labradors will not guarantee your pet’s bones or joints if you spay or neuter prior to 2 years of age. Yoder Labradors cannot obviously guarantee against all genetic defects, but we do our due diligence to make sure we do more health tests than our industry suggests. If something out of the blue comes to affect your pup other than what we have tested for, we cannot be held responsible for the decisions you may want to undertake or the amount of money you may want to invest.
We are very conscientious about our breeding and have very few health problems, we just want you to know all we do so you will be able to talk with other breeders to see what they do. It is very common in our industry to give a 2-year guarantee against the
Genetic problems that we test for and have proof they will not get.
Thank you for reading all of this information, I know it is a lot, but we do this for you.
We look forward to getting to know you, invite you into our home every week if you wish
To help those who have never had a dog to those who now have had one on ours and will
Only come back to us because of the testing that we do.
We love our dogs and puppies and feel blessed that we are able to place these pups into
Families to love and teach their children about the love a puppy and a grown dog can bring into their lives, from families who just want a companion to hike, put on a boat, using as a running companion to those families who have autistic children, to guys and gals with PTSD challenges.
Our blessings to you and warm puppy hugs forever Thank you Cheryl Yoder yoderlabradors
