Wyndance Labrador Retrievers is a CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) approved, small-scale, high-quality in-home breeding program located in Oakridges, Ontario, just 45 minutes north of Metropolitan Toronto. Our email address is: .
After 31 years of owning Labrador Retrievers, I decided that it was time to live out my childhood dream of not only owning labs, but also showing and breeding them. And so, in 2016, I began this incredible journey by reaching out to longstanding reputable breeder and conformation judge Joanne Fernall at Devonsleigh Kennels (www.devonsleigh.com) and purchased Wyndance’s foundation breeding female: GCh Devonsleigh's Black Charm
Our plan is to selectively breed for 1- 2 litters per year and add new members to the Wyndance Labs fur family as we produce our own or source healthy, high-quality pups that qualify to expand our breeding program over time. Please scroll down to see our breeding girls, review their pedigrees, the health clearances that we undertake and if we have an upcoming litter that you might be interested in.
My singular goal is to produce Labrador Retrievers, bred to the breed standard for folks who may simply wish to own a fantastic family pet and/or who may want to participate in Conformation, Obedience, Agility, Hunting or Tracking activities alongside the people that they love and who care for them.

Our Breeding Dogs:
Each of our breeding/upcoming breeding females have been tested by the DDC Veterinary DNA Technology Park in Fairfield, Ohio, receiving DNA clearances for the Labrador Retriever panel of genetic disorders.
When each of them reach two (2) years of age, we have x-rays taken and submitted to the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) to ascertain dysplasia clearances for their hips and elbows, as well as heart clearances by both auscultation and heart echocardiograms.Their eyes are cleared by a board certified canine opthamologist as puppies and then every 2 yrs.. Only upon receiving their clearances, are the dogs put into our breeding program.
Our Breeding Dogs
Name: GCh. Devonsleigh's Black Charm (Charm)
DOB: October 13, 2015
Sire: Ch Sunnydaze Walk The Line
Dam: Devonsleigh's Chocolate Peanut
2018's Best Brood Bitch (LRCC/ALRC) Charm is super smart, fun girl, all wrapped up in a beautifully structured great moving package. She is Wydance's 1st & foundation breeding female and is producing some lovely pups.
Charm achieved her conformation Championship and Grand Championship titles with limited showings by the time she was 22 mths old and took Best Brood Bitch honours (with 2 of her progeny) at the 2018 ALRC & LRCC Nationals and 2019 Labrador Owners Club Specialty Show. She is well behaved wherever we go, loves to play with her people/her toys and is excellent with children, other dogs and cats.
Charm comes from wonderfully accomplished multigenerational lines of Labradors in Canada (Devonsleigh) and US (Sunnydaze) including Best in Show (conformation), High In Trial (Obedience) and Retriever Trial (Field) dogs. She carries all 3 color genes so depending on the color genetics of the male stud dog(s) we use, she has the ability to produce black, yellow & chocolate puppies.

Important Message To Interested/Prospective Wyndance Labrador Retriever Puppy Buyers:
Wyndance lab pups are raised using Puppy Culture socialization and training methods. Before going to their new families at 9-12 weeks of age, Wyndance Labrador puppies are leash trained, can go up and down stairs, are crate trained for bedtimes ( typically 11pm-btwn 4-5 am), they understand can can perform a sit and lay down on command, they have "No Bite (nipping) training from the time they turn 3 weeks and start to get their little razor like teeth and they understand Leave It! when they pick up something that they shouldn't as well.
When considering buying a puppy you need to have a Baby Puppy Care Plan as they can only be crated for 1 hour per month of age before they need to be toileted and have 30-40 mins of simple playtime (that is not exercise).This is a key consideration that will need to be satisfactorily addressed in order to become an Approved To Purchase individual or family.
If you are interested in purchasing a Wyndance Labrador Retriever puppy , it is highly recommended that you place yourself on our Litter Wait List. Simply send me a request for our Puppy Application Form via email and/or give me a call.

Wyndance Breeding Policies:
Breed Colors: We only breed for the three (3) officially CKC recognized colors: Black, Chocolate & Yellow (please note that "Fox Red" & "White" labradors are simply a variant on the Yellow dogs as their coats can range from nearly white through to a deep "yellow" or red.
Breed Certifications/Clearances: Wyndance Labradors are certified for hips, elbows, heart and eye health clearances as well genetic DNA clearances. At least one parent will be clear of "common to the breed" genetic diseases which in turn ensures that our pups will not be affected by them.
Warranties: All pups in our litters will be registered with the Canadian Kennel Club, micro-chipped and leave our home at 8-10 weeks of age with a New Puppy Kit, having been de-wormed at 2, 4, 6 & 8 weeks of age and with their first set of vaccinations (3 sets are required). A written health warranty will be provided for each puppy’s first two years from hereditary defects. We require all buyers to sign our contract which includes a specific Return Policy; if for any reason they are not able to keep their Labrador, we will be notified for re-homing and/or our dog/pup will be returned to us for proper placement.
Approved Buyers Only: All potential buyers are screened to ensure that your Wyndance Labrador Retriever puppy has a safe, loving home. All potential buyers must complete a puppy purchase questionnaire and you will then be interviewed and asked to visit us prior to any commitment for purchase to ensure that our dogs can thrive in their new environments. Under no circumstances will we sell to pet stores or commercial dealers for re-sale. Once approved for purchase, a non-refundable deposit is required, and you will be placed in order of stated preference for sex/color of puppy on to the wait list.
