Pedigree, Purebred, & Heritage
Although our breeding program remains a “hobby” our commitment to the Hunting Labrador Retriever remains strong.
Becoming a breeder and developing a ‘bloodline’ demands that you establish a breeding plan. Number one is to identify those breed characteristics that you want to see reproduced in the dogs that you will produce. Identifying your individual list of characteristics that you want to develop in your bloodline requires that you are familiar with the breed character and are knowledgeable about the breed standards that have been established by the experts within the breed. You will also need knowledge about structural soundness and genetic health issues within the breed. Number two is to develop your eye for a dog, to be able to evaluate one dog from another in terms of those traits that you are breeding.
“…the record of descent of an animal, showing it to be purebred.”
“…of or relating to an animal, all of whose ancestors derive over many generations from a recognised breed.”
“…something that is handed down from the past, as a tradition”

Hat Creek’s Roughridin Outlaw ( Bella). Jean O’Connor is a dear friend & her knowledge of the bred is unsurmountable. It’s no wonder that great dogs bring people together that you might not otherwise meet. Jean has been breeding dogs for over 30 years, and extremely knowledgable. Bella recently died at the age of 14. She was a remarkable producer, a big female that was extremely agile, high-energy, & loved to retrieve.
