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
Thank you for caring for you new family member enough to ask a lot of questions, that actually makes my job easier and I feel more
Comfortable with the families I place my puppies with.
1.I joined the San Diego Labrador Retriever Club years ago and after a year or so I realized my young family at the time was where I needed to invest my time. I now am thinking since the kids are almost out of the house I will look into showing a couple of our young dogs. Now the kids and grandkids have moved back in...will there ever be time?
2.My focus in completely on breeding the breed standard and bettering the breed of the Labrador Retriever. My focus is God, family and dogs in that order. I believe when you keep yourself so busy with other things you really cannot give the care needed to bring these wonderful God given creatures the best start possible.
3.Our family has been breeding for 18 years in Oceanside.
4.We feel that breeders who concentrate on just one breed make better decisions with that breed. I am fully consumed with what is correct and what is not correct with the Labrador retriever.
5.Because of many things we do not breed every heat cycle or even every year. Many times we will wait a couple of years to re-breed. There are many factors to take into consideration, if we choose to do what is called a back to back it is because that specific bitch is in perfect health a wonderful mother and maybe we missed her a heat or two previously. This is not the standard; we only have one girl that has done this. Usually we breed every other heat or wait more than a year to breed again.
6.We really need our dogs to be 2 years old to breed as we do the OFA for hips and OFEL for elbows on all our breeding dogs and its necessary for to have that information on the pedigrees or at least to have those documents available for viewing by our owners and we do put these documents into their folders, to be taken home with them. We also do eye certifications “Cerf” and DNA testing for EIC, and are beginning to do more.
7.We have found a great food that we believe keeps our dogs at the best physical condition possible. We believe you are what you eat so our dogs and puppies have premium dog food not found in big stores like Costco etc.… the food is shipped to your front door from the manufacturer. It is fresh dry kibble and we supplement with a multi-vitamin along with fresh apples and carrots.
8.We do vaccinate our puppies at 5 and 8 weeks of age. The vaccines we use include canine parvovirus, Para influenza, adenovirus type 2, distemper, and hepatitis; this is a five-way vaccine, just one injection.
9. We may ask you to remove your shoes prior to entering our home as with newborns you cannot be too safe. We may use bleach and H2o solution prior to families coming on our property, to dip their feet into or we offer an alternative to that with clean carpet booties to cover their shoes. We also use a bleach and water solution to clean all of our doggie toys and food bowls.
10. We have found a wonderful Flea and Tick Shampoo, all natural and safe for young puppies, pregnant and lactating moms. Natural Chemistry is cedarwood, cinnamon and clove oils along with sodium Laural sulfate. This shampoo kills fleas almost on contact you must wet your pet completely suds them all up spend a few minutes massaging them and cutting their nails and then rinse, most if not all the fleas are dead and most fall off with the rince.
11. We have begun using the Natural Chemistry Kennel spray which you hook up to your hose and spray over your yard and dog crates.
12. Rather than feeding your dog pesticides(flea treatments) we have found DAWN liquid dish detergent is heaven sent, just suds them completely EVERYWHERE then set timer for 10 minutes and rinse the fleas will be dead. This is much safer than feeding pesticides.
WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE

This is very serious even Veterinary Prescription Diets are causing problems Please check this website for Recent Recalls to be well informed about your dog's food. This is why we sell a dog food that is sent to your front door from the manufacturer. Life's Abundance is a fresh dry kibble that we have fed our puppies and all our adult dogs for over 10 years now. Check it out for yourselves do the research your pet deserves that.
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.

THESE ARE THE TYPE OF WOOD CHIPS WE USE FOR THE POTTY TRAY
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.
