What do all Labrador Retriever’s have in common are they are amazing easy to train because of the eagerness to please.
Notes taken from the AKC breed standard. ” What attracted Lord Malmsbury to purchase several Labrador Retrievers
from Newfoundland was that drive to retrieve and willingness to please. That is where our amazing Labs originated
here in the US and Canada. This is what makes the Labrador Retriever the #1 breed in America for many years now.

All Labs, American or English are strong-built, medium-size, short-coupled possessing an athletic, well-balanced
conformation that enables it to function for hours. The most distinguishing features of a Labrador Retriever are its
short dense weather resistance coat; an “otter tail”; a clean-cut head with a broad back skull and moderate stop; powerful
jaw; and its “kind” friendly eyes that express character, intelligence and good temperament.

In our breeding program we have three main goals;
1. Health
2. Temperament
3. Confirmation

I have to tell you that no documentation will tell you your puppy is American or English it is not a
registered thing. But if you want the best lab puppy rolled up in one you will want a little of both worlds.
With the combination of the two, you get the easy trainable lab with fewer health issues. It is hard to explain but
when I think about how we go about doing things it makes sense. When we do the same thing over and over such
as breed for confirmation we are missing out on the other two components. Health is our major priority but we
also give a great deal of attention to Temperament.

English verses America

When I see my puppies I also see them as individual animals, much like I would view my kids or grandkids they
may have similarities but they also have different personalities. Often when the puppies are 5 to 6 weeks of age is
too soon to see their true personalities. This is why we suggest picking out and getting your puppy at an
older age. I know this is not what has been popular but believe me you will thank me for suggesting this.
And don’t get too hung up on the American vs English traits because you will miss the true value of having a lab
puppy. Remember the Ideal Labrador Temperament is summed up as a friendly, outgoing, indulgent with its
peers, and strong human oriented association.
