Introduction

Huckleberry Labradors is a small hobby kennel that was established in 2003. We are located in Minnesota, just 30 minutes from St. Paul/Minneapolis. We breed, on average, one to two litters per year. All of our breedings are planned and thought out months to years in advance. We breed first and foremost for ourselves. Our goal is to build on the lines we have created over the years. With all of our litters we strive to produce healthy and sound Labradors with that true Labrador temperament. This starts with the sire and dam. We health test all of our Labradors for, but not limited to, OFFA hips and elbows, PRA, EIC, and OFFA CERF. 

We started this journey as a fun little hobby my husband and I could share together. Well, here we are 13 years later! We are still enjoying the dogs, but have had to take a break from the weekend traveling to shows to raise our son. Our weekends now consist of chasing Carson from one sporting event to the next. As, Carson gets older and activities get less, we will be back in the ring. We miss the travel, seeing our fellow breeder friends, and making lasting memeories with our dogs. 

 We enjoy the everyday companionship of our dogs. Both indoors and out! Our group especially enjoys romping around our 5-acre property. They love a good game of chuck-it, trail runs, or just relaxing in the shade. We put in a pool a year ago for both us and the Labradors to enjoy. This has been a great source of exercise, fun, and many memories made! Cover off, dogs in! That is all the invitation they need!!

 A few of the dogs are getting on in their years but we are enjoying the time we have left with them. We lost our first conformation Champion, CH Sunsetrdge MacLaren Plaid on July 11th, 2015. He was quite the showman. He taught me the ropes. He was my teacher, my friend, and my blessing. We miss him dearly! Each Labrador that has touched our lives has touched our hearts. They are the reason we continue to do our best to make this wonderful breed better with each litter we produce.
