Our Birchwood puppies should "NEVER" end up in a
shelter,  given away,  resold,  auctioned or raffled.   
We will take them back for the life of the dog,  and
re-home them if possible.
Birchwood is a small hobby breeder, who began  with
rescue & obedience training in 1978.
Birchwoods primary focus is on health, structure and the
temperament of the breed, without sacrificing the
versatility of the breed.  

All puppies offered by us
are first and foremost, a true best friend.





If some compete in conformation, obedience, utility,
search and rescue, or  as a service dog, then we consider
that an added bonus. Our goal is to produce healthy,
well socialized dogs with appropriate temperament, within
the AKC Breed
Standard.
Although, performance, health and structural soundness
of  parents do not guarantee the offspring. There is a
greater chance of improving or maintaining positive traits
in the  Labrador Retriever through selective and
conscientious breeding.
All of our breeding stock have their  OFA hip/elbow
clearances and current eye clearance by a licenced
Veterinary Ophthalmologists.

Through selective breeding, our goal is to produce the
versatile Labrador Retriever, retaining the hunting
ability that has made the Labrador Ret. the ultimate
hunting  companion, without compromising the correct
conformation of the Labrador.

We have an occasional litter,  offering exceptional
puppies. All of our puppies will have their dew claws
removed, age appropriate vaccinations, routine worming,
started on heartworm preventative, micro-chipped &
Volhard temperament tested prior to going home.

Occasionally we have a pup that is  held back and grown
to see how it matures and if this might be something we
want held for breeding stock. If not, sometimes this
started dog is then sold to a qualifying family home.

We have dogs in service work, Therapy work, obedience,
shown in conformation shows, hunting and above all else,
loving companions to the people who make them a part of
their lives.
