Welcome to Greenwood Labradors.
Breeders of AKC registered Labrador Retrievers
Greenwood Labradors is located in the beautiful rolling hills of Northeastern Connecticut, USA. Established in the "Quiet Corner" in 1985, Greenwood Labradors strives to produce sound, healthy, even-tempered puppies. Our goal is to produce Labrador Retrievers that will catch the eye of a conformation judge, while retaining excellent hunting instinct and trainability. A well bred Lab should be able to put in a good day in the field and still have that wonderful Labrador temperament, which makes them a pleasurable companion in the home.
"Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog."

Regarding DNA testing for genetic health issues: We live in an amazing time when many genetic health issues can be avoided due to DNA testing. New markers are being located often. Once a breeding dog is tested by DNA for a specific inheritable health issue, they can be bred safely, without the worry of reproducing that issue. Any dogs tested clear/normal will NOT reproduce the issue, no matter if their mate tests as a carrier, affected or clear. A dog shown to be a carrier can still be safely bred to a non-carrier without producing affected offspring. And...an affected dog can be bred to a non-carrier and will still only produce other carriers. No affected puppies!



What an amazing time for dog breeders!



As new DNA markers are found, we will continue to add new clearances for our breeding dogs.



All of our dogs are DNA tested with a complete panel before breeding.



In addition, we have begun doing complete DNA health profiles on ALL of our puppies, before they leave for their new homes.



These health profiles test for...

Congenital Macrothrombocytopenia (TUBB1 Exon 1, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Variant)

Degenerative Myelopathy, DM (SOD1A)

Exercise-Induced Collapse (DNM1)

Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis (SUV39H2)

Hyperuricosuria and Hyperuricemia or Urolithiasis, HUU (SLC2A9)

Macular Corneal Dystrophy, MCD (CHST6)

Narcolepsy (HCRTR2 Intron 6)

Oculoskeletal Dysplasia 1, Dwarfism-Retinal Dysplasia, OSD1 (COL9A3, Labrador Retriever)

Progressive Retinal Atrophy, prcd (PRCD Exon 1)

Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency (PKLR Exon 7 Labrador Variant)

Skeletal Dysplasia 2, SD2 (COL11A2)

Achromatopsia (CNGA3 Exon 7 Labrador Retriever Variant)

Alexander Disease (GFAP)

Canine Elliptocytosis (SPTB Exon 30)

Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome (COLQ)

Golden Retriever Progressive Retinal Atrophy 2, GR-PRA2 (TTC8)

Myotubular Myopathy 1, X-linked Myotubular Myopathy, XL-MTM (MTM1, Labrador Variant)

Covid protocols:
Normally, we allow puppy visits, by appointment.
Unfortunately,
due to social distancing, we will not have people visiting, at this time.
We will be keeping puppy families current on puppies, with photos and regular updates. As well as Facebook posts. But, there will not be any, in person, visits.
We will also be using Covid precautions, during pick up appointments.
We request that everyone properly wear a face covering. Depending on the current infection rate, we may also request that only one family member come to pick up puppy. I understand that this may be disappointing, for some family members but, please remind them that they have a life time to spend with pup. And, the pick up appointment is just a moment in time, for your puppy.
Thank you for your understanding
