4K Labradors


We are located in Fresno California on our 15 acre ranch with plenty of room to work our great hunting dogs. We have been raising Quality gun dogs for over 15 years. We actively compete in AKC conformation, hunt tests and in North America Hunter Retriever Association tests. We are recognized by the AKC as a “Breeder of Merit”. akc_breederofmerit-125x119The Breeder of Merit Program honors breeder/exhibitors’ dedication and hard work as they continue to produce great hunting dogs that are healthy, capable, and beautiful. The foundation of today’s AKC, Breeders of Merit have the power to influence, guide, and teach future breeders, exhibitors, and all purebred dog owners.

We have both field and show lines in all colors. We occasionally have older dogs for sale. We are members of the Hills Ferry Hunter Retriever Club. We have been very active in past years with the Central California Labrador Retriever Club. Christine has served as the President, Secretary and Public Education Coordinator for the CCLRC through the years and we encourage labrador owners to participate in local clubs. Christine also started in the ring on the other end of the lead as a judge in 2011. “I didn’t know where to stand at first, and Scott swears he knew exactly who I was going to give it to.” We were both pleased to judge the mock hunt test/ fun day at HFHRC and found it gave a great appreciation for what goes into pulling an event like that off.

Scott is Pro-Staff for Remington Sporting Dog, Dogtra E-Collars, E-Collar Technologies, and Game Keeper Supplies. Call us for all your training needs.

We are active supporters of the California Waterfowl Association. Scott and Christine are Dinner Chairs of the Kerman & Mendota Chapters and co-chairs for the new Madera Chapter.

We offer puppies to good homes with the time and space to accommodate them on limited registration. We OFA our breeding stock and CERF annually.

We strive for sound, loving, companions with the drive to perform. Our dogs are being used in the field for upland and duck hunting, as well as drug detection dogs, and first and foremost as loving companions.

We have produced tournament hunting champions, International and American show champions and junior and senior hunters. Our girl Tara (CH Four K’s Celtic Legacy WC) represents 3 generations of AKC champions owned/bred at our kennel. Our next goal is a master hunter or field champion.

If you are thinking about getting a lab, feel free to contact us for more information. We want to help you find your new best friend. From our home to yours.

Oh, and yes we do own a select few German Short Haired Pointers and one Chesapeake Bay Retriever “Blade”, who at his first show earned his International Puppy Championship and also a Reserve Best In Show win! Blade is only one “Major” win away from his AKC Championship. We are thrilled that in 2011, we added our first bred by GSP champion to the ranks.
