Bringing You The "Ultimate All Purpose Companion"

Highland Labradors of Akron, OH

Our colors include:  Yellows/(Foxreds), Black & Chocolate, with bloodlines in Borador, Castlerock, Chablais, Dickendall, Franklin's, Hampshire, Keepsake, Kellygreen, Kerrybrook, Muskekunge's, RidgeView & Tabatha's.  Bloodlines include champions in show & field throughout each line.  We started in 2006 with Nitro Steel who went on to title in AKCSH, AKCMH & UKC HRCH.  He was one in a million companion & everyone who met him realized it to.  So my Mother come up with our slogan which is:

"Bringing You the Ultimate All Purpose Companion."  


Our breeding kids are chosen for excellent temperaments, breeding qualities, ie AKC comformation for the breed, height, weight, bone & head structure, intelligence, great attitude & work ethic plus free from hereditary problems.  Each breeder is a family member 1st.  Each is OFA tested for hips/elbows.  Genetically tested thru Optigen LLC for EIC, CNM, RD/OSD/SD, PRA & HNPK.  Each breeder is dilute free & clear, including eye exams before ever breeding.  Breeders & litters are checked with our local Veterinarians each year & at 6 weeks of age for litters.  It is important that prospective owners should ensure they have the time, home setting, & best intrest for raising our active puppies.  We have pups from Maine to California, Florida to Minnesota & in between.  Yes my hunting buddy will remind me to say even in "The Great State of Texas"  just for you Johnny!   We have made many friends & great memories to present and look forward to many more.
