Our puppies are not just cute, they are backed up with excellent pedigrees, health clearances through OFA, CERF, and DNA. We temperament test our puppies to make the best match possible with the new families. Usually, all the puppies are sold by the time they are 8 weeks old.

Visits Visits are welcome by appointment only. Please, do not come the same day you have visited other kennels, pet stores, vet clinics, or shelters; or with the same shoes that you used in a dog place in the last month.

Unexpected events happen in life. If you can't keep your puppy for whatever reason in the future, he or she will always have a home at van Dalen. It has always been my personal commitment that none of the puppies that I bring to this world would ever end up abandoned or in a shelter. If you can't keep it and you do not have a close family member or friend to adopt it from you, I want it back. We love our puppies a great deal. We welcome pictures and updates and encourage new owners to do so.
Beware of breeders that sell champagne, silver, or charcoal Labradors. These colors are the dilute version of the only 3 AKC accepted colors: black, yellow, and Chocolate. The heavy inbreeding that is done by these breeders commonly produces genetically weak Labrador prone to skin disorders, common infections, and undesirable temperaments. Most of these puppies are destined for a painful, sad, and short life. Veterinarian bills of thousands of dollars are not enough to undo what the greed and lack of knowledge have produced. Shame on breeders that destroy this beautiful breed for the love of money.
