Connie Muellerleile & Tabby Whitaker
Connie brought home her first Labrador named Coco 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.
Connie continues to manage puppy care and the public relations while their granddaughter- Tabby, manages the kennel, breedings and basic training. Tabby's husband- Mikey, helps with the beginner field and puppy training as well. Even the kids, Tanner, Cale and baby RyRy help with puppy socialization and training!
It takes a village to keep our ranch and kennel going. We work hard together to be able to provide quality care to our animals.
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).
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 currently under construction, as we are adding a puppy pool and bigger play area, plus a retirement play area for our older dogs. Expected to be finished by fall of 2021!*
**We are inspected for health and cleanliness by the county and AKC annually**
