Dogs We Bred


Winterwynd is a small hobby kennel presently located in Boise, Idaho. I began in Labradors in 1993 and I am a firm believer in the truly multi-purpose Labrador. The Labrador should be a versatile dog, capable of performing well in any and all endeavors. It is in the best interest of the breed to promote the sound, healthy, typey Labrador that is a pleasure to work and to live with. The best Labradors can and do win in the show ring, win in the field, and win in the home. Towards these ends, we have endeavored to excel in a variety of venues and will continue to train for and compete in multiple disciplines and to breed for excellence in versatility.

Winterwynd embraces the belief that responsible breeding requires a strong commitment to the improvement of the breed, a keen responsibility for every puppy produced, a thorough knowledge of pedigrees, bloodlines, and top producers, and a talent for combining same to produce puppies that surpass their parents in quality. Breeding is an art accompanied by heavy responsibility and is not for the faint of heart or the passing fancy. Thus, only top quality animals that have proven themselves in competition against other potential breeding stock in the show ring and in performance events, and that are phenotypically sound as evidenced by their genetic clearances (hip, elbow, eye, etc.), are used in the breeding program here at Winterwynd. Carefully planned, reared, and socialized litters are available only rarely at Winterwynd.
