Hi Cheryl, wanted to say thank you for our beautiful labs who will be turning one tomorrow. They are Lola's girls.We are so lucky to have such loving, smart, and well behaved dogs. Wherever we go we are given compliments on their beauty. They loved the pool this summer and swam just about every day. They are frequent visitors to the beach, parks, camping trips, and canyon hikes. We get them out daily and they are lucky to have their sisiter to grow up with. My son works at a cage free dog day care facility and takes Roxy with him to work. It's a great example of "a boy and his dog". They are a joy to us and we are grateful to have found Yoder Labradors.

HI CHERYL! Thanks for the email! We have Tripper from your April 21st litter, 3rd pick male. He is just over a year now. Just wanted to let you know what a great dog he has turned out to be. Very happy, mellow, and loves to swim at the beach. Not a barker, jumper, or digger; just a happy loveable big dog. Thanks for bringing him to us!
Thank you, Eric and Amy K._________________________
Hello Cheryl, I've always wanted to tell you, we love our dog, and can't thank you enough for breeding such a well mannered, healthy, and happy animal. Our Lab is extremely well behaved. He knows he can play rough with daddy, but when the kids imitate daddy's playing, Ranger knows the difference. He is not rough at all with them. He is not aggressive, but he will bark and growl at strangers. Ranger is the sweetest dog and probably one of the most spoiled. He absolutely LOVES the water !!! Even the rain! This is just a short update to let you know, that Ranger is happy, healthy, spoiled, and very well loved. Thank you for such an amazing Lab! Jose and Tiffany T., Marissa, Jose 111 and Ranger.__________________________________________
I want to take this opportunity to thank all my puppy families. You all mean so much to me. You have made it possible for me to do what I love. Thank you for the nice letters and all the pictures that you've sent through the years, Warm Puppy Hugs and Blessings to you all.
Yoder Labradors is now exclusively raising Therapy Dogs with only three litters a year

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how extremely happy we are with Little Bear.
He is 10 weeks old now and weighs 15 lbs. The vet reports he is in good health. My son says that he is learning so fast. He has learned: sit, stay, come, shake, gentle, pottybreak, leave it, and fetch. He will sit and stay with food or treat in front of him until Matt gives the ok.
His temperament is so amazing. He loves everyone he meets! He is perfect for a service dog!
He follows my son everywhere or lays down where he can see him.
I am so thankful for this special bond!
Dealing with you has been such a pleasure. We will for sure direct anyone wanting a Lab to you. You were professional.....yet very warm and caring.
Also, I would like to thank you for the military discount even when we never asked for one. Again it shows your heart.
I will try to keep you updated on his progress.
( Judy is available to talk with anyone interested in getting a puppy from Yoder Labradors)
I wanted to let you know how much we love our MAX! He is doing great . He is now about 6 months old. He has been at training for the past 2 week and he is the perfect student and very smart!! I have had many requests about our breeder. I wanted to give you a heads up that I passed your information on to my trainer and a few other people in class that have been very impressed with Max. We are so happy with him and you as the breeder.
Thank you for everything!! 07/26/2013

Max was from Sally's litter.
Just wanted to let you know he is an amazing little dog.
He slept thru the night in the keenel next to me woke up once
I put my hand in he slept till 6
He and Koa have totally bonded, they love each other!
Thanks again for being wonderful with all my visits and
Ill send pics as he grows
Little Bear is still growing, but all the guys say he can't be under a year old because he has learned so much so fast ! Thanks for such a great companion!
Good to talk to you. I am so excited to hear Kona may have a litter soon.
Just a couple of words about our Hank that we got from you. He is such an amazing dog. We knew he was smart when we got him home and
asked him to go potty outside and he did. He has such a big personality and loves the water and his ball. He has given our family such joy and love. He is such a great dog and loves to socialize with people on the street. Everyone who comes to the house and even strangers on street always compliment him and his personality. He has been such a blessing.
We are looking for a buddy for Hank and still talk about how amazing Kona was.
Please let us know as soon as we can come down and see the upcoming litter.

Hi Cheryl- 03/05/14
You may not remember me but we got our puppy Logan from you 7.5 years ago. He turns 8 at the end of May. He was a litter from Kahuna (1 boy, 3 girls). He is the best thing that ever happened to us and we thank God every day that he came into our lives. Just wanted to send an updated picture of him, as I’ve sent you a few over the years. This was taken on Sunday down at Mission Bay.
Hope you and your family are well, Laurie
We got our chocolate labrador, "Sadie", from you whose parents are Kona Koa and JoJo back in June (she was born April which makes her 6 months old, almost 7!) and she is the most precious and loving puppy ever! Her temperament is of the sweetest disposition and she is full of exciting energy and yes... She is Princess Sadie, has my husband wrapped around her paw and my parents call her their "grand dogger"! :)
Everywhere we go we are used to people literally stopping and gazing at her admiringly and saying, "I've never seen such a beautiful lab!" and if we get the chance and they ask where we got her, we (especially I) direct them to Yoder Labradors!!!
Our neighbor has said, "Is it just me? Or does she increase in beauty with age?",with lots of attention and training she is obedient and so eager to please us! She adores people and everyone who come near her absolutely adore her as well!
She is definitely unique, it's as if she knows how to approach different kinds of people... There were these parents that approached us with a dear little girl who was very uncertain of Sadie. These parents immediately loved on Sadie and gave her loving attention and approached gently with their daughter hoping she will like dogs as her mother said she had a terrible encounter with a dog that has traumatized this little girl for a long time, and they have been wanting a dog but because of their daughters fear of them they couldn't adopt.
It's as if Sadie knew, because to all of our astonishment, Sadie (who is full of energy and loves to play), very sweetly crawled (yes, you read right! Crawled!!!) to this little girl slowly and lowered her head down and gently nuzzled the little girls hand with sweet kisses.
Immediately the little girl began to pet Sadie and got so comfortable with her she embraced Sadie and even kissed her on the cheek!!! After that, not only were these parents excited and thankful, but asked us, "Where did you get Sadie?" And you know where!! ;)
Thank you, Yoder Labradors for investing such love and passion into your dogs and puppies and truly giving us such a BLESSING!!!!!

Hi cheryl :)
We just wanted to check in and thank you and your husband again, for our sweet boy. We are all smitten! He is so sweet and gentle , and very smart. He mastered the sit command in three attempts on just his second day home! He had his first appointment with our vet and the entire office was in love, our vet commented on what a beauty he is as well as noted that he was obviously very well cared for by you and your family . I attached some pics i thought you might enjoy of him lounging in the yard.
Thanks again !

Hi Yoder Family,
It's been a while since we got our chocolate Labrador from your lovely family. I thought I'd share a video of how well tempered our phenomenal Zoe-Bean is. This is our second child since we got Zoe and both of them love her to pieces! She's so well behaved that at age one both of our daughters were able to walk her down the street. Not to mention my youngest loves to eat breakfast with her in the morning lol. My family wanted to say hello and thank you for giving us such a wonderful family pet!
The Alfred Family
Zoe brings unimaginable joy to our daughters and your labs are some of the best. Everyone we come across love her, we can't say enough good things about her.
Hi Cheryl, we all just love Finn. He is such a loving, playful, beautiful puppy. Thank you so much for thinking of us and allowing Finn to be a part of our family.

Happy New Year to you and your family!
We are so blessed to have gotten our dog Sammie from you. She is a beautiful, energetic, loving and very expressive dog. She talks to us daily and snores when she sleeps.
Sammie just turned three and we continue to get compliments about her beautiful features.
I have passed along your name to others.
We have continued to feed Sammie the Life Abundance Food and the Nutra Vet vitamins. She is healthy and happy.
Thanks again for breeding such fine labs.
Have a successful 2017!
On the occasion of Mother's Day, it occurred to me to check your website and show Gracie her daughters who are carrying on her line. It's wonderful to see the picture of Glory and Moana.
We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to bring Grace into our family. She is very happy here and loves having any people, but particularly children, visit. She has a number of doggy friends around our neighborhood and brings us great joy every day. She loves to find anything to carry in her mouth (socks are a big favorite!) and present it to us proudly. Strangers go out of their way to compliment her beauty and temperament, a testament to the amazing work you and your family do.
I hope you have a wonderful day surrounded by loving family. Grace will get to spend the day with six children, three moms, and two adult children (oh, some men, too). We will be thinking of you.
I wanted to let you know that our sweet Logan passed away in August at almost 14 1/2. I can't even express to you how much we loved him and how devastated we are to lose him. Like Kahuna, he lived a long healthy life and basically died of old age. The last few months have been really hard. He was an amazing dog. Gorgeous inside and out! I could not have asked for a better best friend and companion. He was the love of my life! I will attach a few pictures and a link to his tribute on FB. I hope you can access it.
I wanted to check with you and see when you might be having another litter of yellows. We will never be able to replace Logan but we'd like to open our hearts and home to a new boy. I'd love to know what 2021 looks like for you. I was on your page and your dogs are beautiful as always. The links at the top don't seem to work though (except on my phone) so I was having some trouble getting details on pups and parents.
I hope you and your family are well. 2020 was a tough year for many. Hopefully this next year brings more joy to our lives.
Hope to hear from you soon.
