Our Process

The Ridge View Breeding Standard of Excellence

Health Testing


We pride ourselves on the mental and physical soundness of our Labradors. We strive to improve our breed by pairing our best Sire and Dam including selecting outside stud dogs that we feel meet our high expectations for temperament, health, and trainability. Producing healthy dogs means certifying our health testing through the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation of Animals), Echocardiogram and Embark. We follow the LRC INC parent club recommend health testing for our breed, this includes Hips, Elbows, Eyes. We also do DNA health testing through Embark for various genetic markers.

We offer a 30 month health guarantee on all puppies for hips, elbows, eyes.

At RidgeView, our goal is to improve the breed. We hope to achieve this by breeding quality males and females that meet our high expectations for temperament, health, and trainability.

Puppy Raising

We believe that a puppy’s early life is critical for neurological development. From conception to 8 weeks and on, we ensure our puppies are given the best possible start to life. We do Early Neurological Stimulation, Early Scent Introduction, and the Rule of Sevens with every litter. Pups that remain with us past 8 weeks are put into our Amazing Puppy Program where they are introduced to crate training, obedience, socialization, and more!
