Rocky Flats Kennels, Located in Eastern Tennessee, is a small selective breeding kennel having no more than two or three puppy litters a year.
We specialize in breeding English Standard AKC Registered Labrador Retrievers in Yellow, Black and Fox Red.
Our breeding philosophy focuses on conformation, intelligence, good temperament and retrieving ability.
All of our dogs are registered with AKC and have had all of their health clearances done.
We fell in love with Labradors over 30 years ago with our first light yellow Labrador female, "Madison'. Madison captured our hearts as soon as we brought her home at 8 weeks old. We enjoyed her intelligence, her mischievousness, her sweetness and her ever constant loyalty. Madison shared her "eager to please" attitude with us every day of her 12 years on this planet. It is because of her and the impression she made in our lives that we are now the proud breeders of "The Dogs of Rocky Flats Kennels". There have been some very special dogs that have come after Madison, each one leaving us with wonderful memories and lasting impressions.
Our kennels are family owned and all of our dogs and their puppies are family members to us. We have been raising puppies for nearly 20 years and used to be dog show enthusiasts. As age crept up and sore knees were an issue running around the ring hurt our knees now we just enjoy watching our peers show the dogs that share some of our genetics. We are very selective in our puppy placing process and require an application filled out and emailed to us as well as a personal or telephone interview. At 5 weeks of age we have a puppy luncheon/open house/meet and greet. Our owners for each litter come to our kennel,see how our dogs live, how their puppies have been raised for the first 5 weeks of their lives and during puppy nap time we all enjoy a lunch together and get to know more about how a puppy will fit into your family. It is a fun day,the puppies enjoy the families and we do also. Even when they have gone to their perspective families, we are there for our Labrador Retriever owners throughout the life of their dog to answer any questions and to share in the joys of their growing puppies.
