Tabby Whitaker & Connie Muellerleile
Connie brought home her first Labrador named Cocoa in 1979. Since then, her and Mike have accomplished multiple show championship titles as well as Master Hunter titles.
Connie started with breeding chocolates and eventually fell in love with the light yellows. She bred until she got an almost perfect white in color with slight shading to the ears, which is what we eventually became known for. While we still do the standard colors- black, yellow, chocolate, Connie has expanded the breeding program to have whites, dark chocolates and fox reds.
When Mike and Connie started the breeding program years ago, they didn't expect it to grow into what it is today. It takes a village to maintain the health of our dogs, the kennel and the property.
Tabby now handles the breeding and training, while Connie manages puppies and paperwork.
Tabby's kids are an active part of puppy socializing and are involved with helping as well.
Soundness is important to us which is why we work hard to breed out any potential health risks from our program. All of our dogs have Hip & Elbow Certifications with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, as well as Eye Health Certifications Annually. We GUARANTEE ALL of our puppies sold to pass hips, elbows, eyes and to be clear on EIC (Excercise Induced Collapse) and PRA (Progessive Retinal Atrophy) by 25 months of ages or it will be replaced with another puppy of quality of the same sex and color, without asking for the return of the original pup.
We have 2 big run yards where dogs are put out daily to play, secure kennels, and whelping areas that are cleaned daily. Each dog has their own kennel, unless we double up for play time!
We also take pride in our puppy socializing play pens, which are kept in our home until the puppies reach an age where they can all play in run yards outside (weather permitting). Their yards have puppy pools, kiddie playhouses for shade, potty area and toys for stimulation.
Puppies start training with a litter box in their play pens when weaning begins, which makes the potty-training process easier when you get them to your home!
**We are inspected for health and cleanliness by the county and AKC annually**
