BatesCreek Labradors is a countryside kennel located in Northeast Ohio, approximately 30 minutes east of Cleveland.
At Batesreek, we strive to produce quality, English style, Labrador Retrievers, for show, obedience, field and family companions. All breeding stock is certified through OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals). Eyes are done annually through CERF (Canine Eye Registry Foundation). Additionally, we test all of our dogs for PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy), EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse) and HNPK (Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis).
Careful planning, prenatal care and testing is done to accomplish a wonderful litter of puppies. Puppies are all raised in my home, receiving personal attention to socialize them with human tender loving care. From the moment that the puppies take their first breath, to the time they go to their new loving homes, new positive stimulations are introduced.
BatesCreek family puppies return for a stay while owners are on vacation or on business. It gives us great pleasure to be reunited with the puppies and dogs that we grew to love as part of our family.
