Welcome to Sunset Labradors

 Sunset Labradors was a small hobby breeding program located in New Hampshire. I have dedicated more than 30 years to breeding, raising, training, rescuing, and loving Labrador Retrievers. The goals of my breeding program included preserving and enhancing the wonderful characteristics of the breed. I share my home with 8 adult Labrador. My canine kids enjoy relaxing in my home and playing in a large fenced-in yard. 
  • Rally Obedience is my favorite canine sport. The handler and the dog work as a team to complete a course that consists of 12 to 20 signs that illustrate the required tasks. Rally O training promotes teamwork and it's fun. For a little variety, I have some agility equipment.
  • I have been a member of the Labrador Retriever Club of Greater Boston for more than 25 years. The club promotes ethical breeding practices and supports a range of activities including field trials, conformation shows, obedience trials, and educational programs. The club also supports Lab Rescue and promotes canine health clearance clearances. I've learned valuable information from other members that share their knowledge and experiences. 
  • I was an active volunteer for Labrador Retriever Rescue, Inc. for 25 years. I donated my time and talents to supporting the organization by taking calls from people that needed to surrender their Labradors, fostering and training Labradors waiting for their new home, and evaluating families interested in adopting a rescue Labrador.
All of my litters were carefully planned.
  • My goal is to breed intelligent, healthy, sound puppies with correct conformation, classic Labrador temperament, and a low to moderate energy level. 
  • An eager-to-please attitude and the desire to retrieve are priorities. 
  • My girls and the sires have health clearances including hips, elbows, eyes, cardiac by echocardiogram, and numerous DNA tests for inherited disorders. 
  • The sires are selected based on their pedigree, temperament, conformation, and health clearances. I provide prospective owners with information about the sire including copies of his pedigree and health clearances 

The Animal Bill of Rights

The right to live without hurt and pain,
And to love and be loved.

The right to a warm and healthy environment,
And to be provided food and shelter.

The right to happiness and companionship,
And to live in peace and comfort.

And the right to age gracefully, with integrity and beauty.
And to be given respect as a worthy companion.

The right to have their rights represented by a caring friend,
And to part from this life with dignity.
