LAB BREEDER - PUPPIES


If you want a hunt or field test dog, or a dog that can be your be your special friend and companion, please check out our excellent candidates.

Our puppies are bred to be free any known genetic defects, good looking, and intelligent. To the best of our knowledge, our breeding stock is free of common hereditary defects such as hip dysplasia, inherited elbow problems, and progressive retinal atrophy. We have been breeding Labradors since 1984 (we're starting to slow down a little) and have insisted on a responsible breeding program. That is why we feel sure you will be pleased with your puppy. Letters from our satisfied customers help confirm this. You may always come to us for questions or assistance in caring for your pup. We are located in Delaware on the Eastern Shore - an easy trip for many people wishing to see our litters.

PARADISE KENNELS GUARANTEE

We guarantee your puppy against inherited hip/elbow dysplasia and inherited ocular disease for twenty four months from the date of whelp. Full refund of purchase price upon written proof of above disease from your vet and a letter from the OFA. In case of inherited ocular disease we need written proof from an Animal Optometrist. Also, we will need proof that your dog has been spayed or neutered.


Paradise Kennels puppies are born and raised in our home and are well socialized. Their dew claws are removed & pups are wormed and vaccinated. Since most puppies are sold before they are old enough to leave, we recommend making a deposit (see deposit mailing information) to establish your turn in picking a puppy. Clients pick their puppies in the same order we received their deposits.

Getting your new puppy

We no longer fly pups, clients can fly in and fly their pup in cabin or drive here to pick up.
Puppies that are picked up locally go to new homes at 7 weeks of age; the pups that fly in cabin can fly at 7 weeks according to airlines that permit.

Otto
(click for large picture)

Otto is an extremely handsome 70-pound yellow lab. Born 10/6/2013, the two attributes people always comment on about Otto are how muscular he is and how fast he runs. He is extremely driven to retrieve and is a Junior Hunter titleholder. Otto loves to be in the hunting blind either in the field or on the water. When he is not retrieving, he is everyone's best friend and will readily roll on his back for belly rubs. He comes from a great line of Paradise Kennels' yellow labs.

His Sire, Int'l CH MERGANSER'S YELLOW JERSEY, JH, WC, SH, is a beautiful 82lb Yellow Male and is that "special" combination of good looks and brains/free of known genetic defects. His Dam, SHR DDC'S ICE ON THE TRESTLE, is a 65 Ib beautiful yellow female. She, like many of our dogs, has an excellent pedigree and is one of the sweetest dogs we own.

See Otto's video!

Otto has OFA Excellent Hips, OFA Normal Elbows, Clear Eyes, DNA Tested Clear for CNM, EIC, Degenerative Myelopathy, Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration, Retinal Dysplasia/Oculoskeletal Dysplasia 1, and Skeletal Dysplasia 2.

NEW OWNERS!


After 34 years of breeding dogs and raising puppies, Nancy and I have decided to retire and do some traveling. We were blessed with great breeding stock and good health during that time. We can say in all sincerity, that we did our best to improve the breed. I can tell you that while it is tremendously taxing and physically challenging, there is a wonderful thrill bringing new life into this world. We have had a great time raising puppies in our home and have met a lot of truly great people during this adventure.

God introduced us to a young couple that have the same love of Labradors that we do and wanted to take over the business. Effective July 31, 2018 Danny and Rachel Truitt will be the new owners of the domain www.peachesandpups.com

They can be reached at Twin Oak Retrievers,
email: twinoakretrievers1@aol.com Phone:1-443-480-1429

While we are stepping down, we will be consulting and advising them for the next several years. The transition will be seamless and you can expect the same high quality labs from them as you got from us.

Thanks for all your support and friendship over the years.

Levin and Nancy Van Sant
