Labradors make exceptional family companions and performance partners
Our Goal is to Raise Quality Labrador Retreivers
We raise typically one litter of Labradors per year. We train and compete our dogs as a hobby that we find is a rewarding way to enjoy our dogs. We strive to achieve those qualities that make a good companion starting with good health, temperament, and a nurturing environment. All of the puppies are raised in our home. Heartride Labradors is an AKC registered kennel and an AKC Breeder of Merit.
We are members of the Labrador Retriever Club (national parent club, www.thelabradorclub.com), Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac (www.lrcp.com), Labrador Retriever Club of the Chesapeake (www.chesapeakelabclub.com), and the Rappahannock River Retriever Club (www.rrrclub.com).
All of our dogs used for breeding have health clearances first. Orthopedic Foundation for Animals lists clearances under each dog's name (www.offa.org).
