The Joseph Family has been breeding Labrador retrievers for over a decade. Brian is an avid outdoorsman and bird hunter who works with the Silver Valley dogs natural hunting ability. The entire family help socialize the Silver Valley puppies into great family pets.
They started breeding labs after Marcie rescued their now stud dog Buddy from someone that had neglected him and tied him up on a short rope in a cement stall in a cow barn. He was 2 years old, untrained, not housebroke and on his way to the animal shelter when Marcie found him on this farm. To make a long story short, Buddy has come a long way and he and Marcie are practically inseparable.
The females of Silver Valley Kennels are bred during their 2nd year and ONLY with acceptable ratings from OFA and only once a year after that. All the dogs are vet checked regularly, vaccinated yearly, on year round heartworm medication and are fed a super premium dog food specific to each dog's needs.
It is our goal to create beautiful, healthy puppies that will become perfect family pets and hunting companions.
