Welcome to Yankee Ridge Retrievers! This website is dedicated to the Labrador Retrievers that have enriched our lives so much.
We are not a breeding kennel but occasionally raise a litter of puppies if we feel the parents have proven themselves to be outstanding individuals. Not only are our Labradors part of our
family, but are also enjoyed in hunting, hunt tests, dog shows, and
animal-assisted therapy activities. We believe a well bred dog
should be able to do almost any activity if trained properly.
We have personally experienced some of the health problems that are so prevalent in the Labrador breed due to the indiscriminately breeding of unproven and untested dogs.
Owning a dog is a huge investment in time, money, and emotion. Consequently, purchasing a puppy from parents that have proven themselves at home, in the field, in events with other dogs, and have the appropriate health clearances, is the best investment you can make for your pet's future.
We have gone to great lengths to try and raise a litter of puppies from proven parents that will be healthy, good looking, athletic, and have a disposition that will make them a loving addition to your family for many years.
