Our Philosophy

Exercise Is Key

Located on a dead end dirt road just outside of Bethel, Maine, our home sits on 42 acres with 2 ponds for the dogs to enjoy. In addition to walking trails in the woods and swimming in the pond, we have a huge yard that is fenced in for their safety.   

We are big believers in getting the dogs outside for walks everyday.  Not only is it a great bonding experience, but it’s the perfect time to do some obedience training.  Rain or shine (or snow!), we make sure to get out there and explore.

At the end of the day, a tired dog is a good dog!

Our Ideal Labrador

We strive for a labrador that is small in stature, good natured, with a thick coat, blocky head and otter tail.  All clearances must be met before any breeding. 

Our dogs are calm, gentle and well-trained.  All of them attend obedience classes, have their CGC (canine good citizens) certificates and have been trained to duck hunt.  Our labs are extremely versatile, we can duck hunt with them in the morning and take them hiking in the afternoon. Or, as we like to call that: The Perfect Day.
