I grew up with Labradors in my family. My first Lab was a wonderful black boy
named Chief in 1977. He was a wonderful  family companion. We are active in
AKC conformation shows and AKC obedience. I have been a 4H leader in Dog
Training for over 12 years. Teaching children how to train their dogs and to
become a team is so rewarding.  It is wonderful to watching them learn together,
seeing their bond together grow more and more. I am active in serveral dog
Clubs/Groups. San Joaquin Labrador Retriever Club, Sierra Vista Labrador
Retriever Club, Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Club and Kennel Club Of The
California Sierras.

Here at Elkens Labradors our goal is to produce quality all around Labradors that
are bred to the AKC standard. Labs that are healthy, sound in temperment, sound
in body, as well as beautiful. We want our Labradors to be able to go from the
show ring to the hunt field and back to their families house to be that sweet
wonderful family and house dog.
Breeding Labradors you will be Proud to Own
and Love.

We stay to the AKC standards of the Labrador Retriever. Temperment is very
important! A Labrador must be a friendly loving family companion and a worthy
hunting partner.

We breed Yellows from Foxred to Light Cream and Blacks.

Soundness is of primary importance here at Elkens Labradors.  Our breeding dogs
are certified through OFA (Orthopaedic Foundation for Animals) program for their
hips and elbows. OFA's web site it   Their eyes are checked and
cleared through CERF (Canine Eye Registry Foundation).  Hearts are cleared
through color doppler exams. PRA (Blindness) tested & EIC tested.

All our puppies are raised in our home so we can provide the start of the special
attention and socialization they need to become great adult dogs. Socialization is
very important to a young puppy. We start working with the puppies right away.
They are loved and played with by my children and grand children.

All our puppies are sold on a
limited AKC registeration. They come with a five
generation pedigree, de-wormed, first shots, health record, puppy food, puppy kit
which provides feeding guide, lots of information on how to raise and how to care
for your puppy.

Our kennel name Elkens Labradors comes from my wonderful husband Ken and
my name Eleonore (EL) combined to create ELKENS. Our kennel name
Elkens Labradors is registered with AKC.
