"Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea." -- Robert A. Heinlein

Our Labrador puppies are bred to give you the best possible Labrador pup that money can buy. If you want a hunt or field test dog, hunter/companion dog, obedience, agility, search and rescue dog, that can be your special friend and companion, a Deep Run puppy will be just right for you.


Read our commentary about responsible breeding


Our puppies are bred to provide you with a pup free of genetic defects, pleasing in appearance, and intelligent with a good attitude for learning. To the best of our knowledge, our breeding stock is free of common hereditary defects such as hip and elbow dysplasia, progressive retinal atrophy, central retinal atrophy, cataracts, and thyroid disease as well as Exercise Induced Collapse, Centronuclear Myopathy, Retinal Dysplasia and Oculoskeletal Dysplasia.

When genetic tests are available for hereditary diseases, we usually have our dogs tested by an approved laboratory.

DDC Veterinary: DNA Services for Animals- Offers DNA tests for canine and equine species. Services include parentage, DNA genotyping, DNA banking, disease screening, and coat color prediction.

We now know that some of these diseases, previously perceived as hereditary, are influenced more by rearing, feeding, and neutering programs (See article Study Shines Spotlight On Neutering) than previously thought. We use the most current guidelines for nutrition and environment to give our pups the best possible start. We provide you with essential information on nutrition, body scoring and health care so you can take over when you get your puppy to provide an optimum environment.

We have been breeding Labradors for twenty years at this location, over 40 years in all and have faith in our breeding program, because it is backed by experience, education, and application.

"May we always have a young one full of promise to admit us to those places of wonderment only permissible while in the company of a Labrador" - Gene Hill from the epilogue of Richard's History of the Labrador.

hatter
Hatter
(click for large picture)
Hatter is an exceptional marker and handles well on blinds. He went 4 for 4 in Junior and Senior, and completed his Master Hunter Title in the spring of 2014. In the fall of 2014 he completed his Upland Senior and Master Hunting titles, becoming the first chocolate to achieve two Master Hunter Titles in both retrieving and upland venues.

He is 85 pounds, a very handsome dog, medium chocolate in color with a classic Labrador head and well proportioned build. His sire, GMHR Deep Run After Six MH (Buddy) was my personal dog, one of the truly exceptional dogs I have had the privilege to own, train, and handle, as was Buddy's father GMHRCH Six O'Clock Scholar, MH before him. Hatter's mother is a beautiful conformation dog, carrying on the lines of multiple Best in Specialty Winner, CH/Can/Int CH Tabatha's Rollick at Carrowby, CD, JH, and her sire Am/UKC CH Deep Run Wind and Smoke, JH, WCX. Hatter is a talented, intelligent, and kind dog. He has a terrific sense of humor and is always delighting us with some stunt or other. When he is not trying to use the walkie talkie or use the phone, he is trying to steal my hat or gloves.

HIs puppies are proving to be as handsome, intelligent and trainable as he is.

Hatter is OFA Hips Good, Elbows Normal, EIC and CNM Clear, OFA Cardiac, Full Dentition, Patellas Normal, OFA Eyes Clear.
