|Crest Kennels,llc est. 1984
|I exclusively breed the classic English Labrador with the big, blocky
heads, tons of bone, thick otter tails.
My breedings are researched and planned to produce wonderful
temperaments, optimal health and soundness; following the AKC
breed standards, and maintain the purpose of the breed.
My goal is for my dogs to accomplish great things.
Be it in the show ring, obedience, Therapy/Service work or as

|I breed Show bred/English Labradors, not Field/American Labs.
I also only breed AKC yellow & black color puppies .
I do not breed Champagnes, Charcoals, Silvers.
|What is the difference you ask?
Show bred Labs- (also known as English) generally are shorter in leg, have
a heavier body with more bone. Thick, short tails (otter like) and a much
thicker, fuller coat than a field Lab. They also have a shorter muzzle,
wider/broader head and smaller ears. Their temperaments are wonderful
and they are eager to please their owners. They are low-key overall and
Field bred Labs- (also known as American) have longer legs and lighter
body. Their coats aren't as thick and tails are longer and thinner. Heads are
not as broad, with a longer muzzle and bigger ears. They have high energy,
also known as lots of "drive". They are bred for hunting and field trials.

|Crest Kennels is NOT a pet store, commercial kennel or breeding facility,
we are a family home-run "business". I hate to even call it a "business"
because my dogs are my life.
