Sailor’s Delight Labradors
Traverse City, MI
We do NOT have any current litters. I will update the website when we decide to breed again. Thanks for looking!
Our dogs have been evaluated by veterinary cardiologists, ophthalmologists, orthopedists, and passed the screening exams for congenital and dysplastic diseases (see Nuge and Nelli's pages for details). Our Puppies vaccinations are up to date through 6 weeks of age. Check out the links for last years puppy pictures, and the testimonials and some of those pups now that they are a year old.
The sire and dam are every reason why the Labrador Retriever has been America's most popular dog for the last 20 years. Incredible Gundogs, from ducks, geese and pheasants to woodcock and partridge they will find and/or retrieve any waterfowl or upland bird. These great hunting dogs live in our house with our 7 month old, 3 year old and 4 year old sons, and are fun and calm everyday companions. Waterfowl and Upland hunting dogs that are family pets, these black labs prove that it is possible.
Our Labrador retriever pups were bred for calm temperament; intelligence/easy trainability; medium size (sire is 56lbs and dam is 65lbs); coat quality (thick and soft); and hunting drive. We offer a breeder contract, AKC registration papers, pedigrees of both parents, and pictures in a folder with each pup. Our dogs' elbows, hearts and eyes are officially OFA and CERF certified. The sire's hips are PENN HIP certified and the dam's hips are OFA certified. (see pages for details)
The Sire “Nugent” is a British Black Labrador Retriever from Robert Milner's Duckhill Kennels (http://www.duckhillkennels.com) with high intelligence, heavy coat, hunting drive and agile build. Robert Milner said that Nugent's Sire "Otter" was "of the hundreds of labs I have trained, the most intelligent Labrador I have ever worked with." Nugent has lived up to that British Labrador standard of high intelligence and insatiable hunting drive. The Mother “Benelli” is an American standard Black Labrador Retriever from Jack and Evie Kamphouse here in Northern Michigan. She also is extremely intelligent and has a beautiful, sleek build, silky coat and that gundog gaze. Both dogs have made gundog training easy and have taught me much more than I have taught them. They live with us in our home in Traverse City, Michigan.
