Brandy and I have been married for 23 years, and we have 3 beautiful children that are nearly grown. One recently completed nursing school and is working at George Town Med Surg hospital in Washington DC, another daughter who is starting law school in Arkansas in August of 2022 ‘ and a son is in the national guard, and finishing up college at Southwest Baptist University.  I’m an IT guy by trade and my wife works as a manager at Walgreens. We are tucked away in a small village on the north side of Kansas City called Claycomo, only known for being the home of the “Kansas City” Ford plant.  We own an acre and a half or so, just enough to have fun and raise a litter or two each year.   For years I have had my children who socialized my pups but as they are grown people now I have to recruit nieces and nephews!  Overall it’s a blast doing it and we look forward to sharing our home and our love of Labradors with others and watching them grow up.

Our Puppy Owner Group

We have a Facebook Group that we send all of our new puppy owners to so that they can share updates of their puppies as they grow up.  We love to stay in touch with our puppy families and make sure these puppies grow up into wonderful loving homes.  We generally will take puppies back if there is a problem in keeping them due to moving or change of life situations.   To connect to our FB group request to join it here!

When I came to faith in Christ I had just spent some considerable time in Mexico and Nicaragua.  My life was forever changed with an encounter in Costa Rica.   The eyes of my heart were opened to just how disgusting and sinful of a human being I was in reality.  Through this eye opening time, I eventually came to a real saving faith in Jesus Christ. He then called me to come back home, much like in the story of the prodigal son.   I was chasing the world, the things of the world, but God granted me a second chance to life.  I began to read the book of John, and the book of James, and with my eyes newly opened to the realness of Jesus Christ, I began to grow in faith.   This slow growing of faith has not been without my many failings, I don’t do things perfectly, but now I know Christ is walking with me.   We attempt to do all things, with Christ in mind.  Often we do it  imperfectly but our intent is to tell as many people as we can about the Good News of Jesus Christ.


Our family started raising Labradors in 2008 on a whim, we went out and picked up our first yellow Labrador.  I believe this is how most breeders get started!

In our attempts to breed better we strive to start our litters the best possible way by spending hours socializing, With basic training and monitoring strict diets and nutrition for healthy growth. We feel if you do this at a very young age of pup, it will pay off in the future and will create a long, healthy, productive life.  Therefore if  you are looking for the best quality dog for your investment, you have picked the right place!

Frequently Asked Questions – Price?Best Lab Breeders in Missouri

I have a lot of people contact us looking for a “$300-$500” dog because they want just a “pet”. I know these people will ultimately go elsewhere, but I try to respond to every email, message, phone call, etc. in detail and try to educate and explain why our dogs cost what they do. There is a huge difference between a $500 dog and a $1800 – $2500 dog. Best Lab Breeders in Missouri

You truly do get what you pay for….

The $500 dog will typically come from a backyard breeder that does no health testing and provides the bare minimum of care for their puppies and will generally sell their puppies to anyone that shows up with the cash.

How often do you have litters?

We generally only have litters only once or twice a year, sometimes we go for longer periods of time between litters.  Please just check with us and we will keep you posted.

What is our Guardian Discount Program?
Ask about our guardian program, we do sometimes give further discounts if you live within an hour of Kansas City and will allow us to maintain the papers with us, and allow us to use normally a male in tact to use for future breeding purposes.  The pups go home with you, they are your pet, we pay for testing for them, and when they are of age, they come and stay a week or two a couple times a year with us to breed to some of our females.  — Ask us about the Guardian Program for more information.
