I have dedicated the past 30 years to the documentation of medical pedigree research in the Labrador Retriever. My research studies the inheritance factors involved in many of the congenital diseases affecting the Labrador of today: i.e. crippling hip and elbow dysplasia; cardiac arrhythmias; blinding Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) and many other congenital eye diseases; severe temperament and behavioral problems; and seizures resulting in epilepsy.

Waiting lists are common at Canterbury. We are not a big operation, as we only
produce one to two litters a year. We do not export puppies, sell to pet stores
or brokers. All puppies are home raised and are very well socialized to people
and children. Because of the many and sometimes frightening sights and sounds
encountered in the home, this home-rearing helps to ensure proper socialization
and actually sets the foundation for their confidence and behavior as an adult.
Puppies will receive their first vaccinations; have their dew claws removed,
be de-wormed; and have been heart and health checked by my veterinarian. Puppies
remain in my care until eight weeks of age, before traveling to their new homes.

We produce only black and yellow Labrador Retrievers
We guarantee our puppies with a written contract
We are very proud of the puppies we produce. Considerable time and care are taken in placing them in homes where they will become integral family members. Their welfare is our number one concern. Puppies are sold on an AKC Limited Registration basis.
