OUR SETUP

Our Property

Our Labrador puppies are raised on our 15 acre property located in Olympia, Washington.  We are located an hour south of Seattle and two hours north of Portland.  The property is a combination of wetlands, woodlands, and cleared field.  Exercise is very important for Labradors and our dogs are walked daily in addition to having the freedom to roam in our yard.  Our Labrador puppies are part of our family until they become a part of your family.   The goal is to produce balanced, adaptable, and intelligent dogs that fit into any lifestyle.

Whelping Room

Each of our puppies is whelped in our home in a room we have devoted to our dogs.  We are present for each birth and weigh and handle the puppies daily.  The puppies are birthed in a large whelping box and spend their first few weeks in the box under the supervision of their mother and our family.  Once the litter is able to crawl in and out of the box, they are allowed to roam freely in the dog room and explore.  Separate sleep, play, and potty areas are set up for the litter.  The room has access to the outdoor puppy yard.

Indoor Puppy Rooms

Outdoor Puppy Enclosure

At approximately four weeks of age the dog door is opened and the litter can move freely between our outdoor enclosure and their dog room.  Behavioral enrichment through play is tremendously important, and we go to great lengths to ensure these opportunities are created.  The outdoor enclosure contains a grass area where the puppies relieve themselves as well as several items designed to introduce them to different stimuli.  We incorporate rocks, logs, straw, ladders, chairs, ramps, platforms, balance beams and any other items we think may be helpful.
