truth about the Dilute Gene

A lot of thought, careful planning, and intense research goes into each breeding here at Cresthill. We do everything possible to ensure that our litters will produce puppies that are genetically sound. All dogs in our breeding program have OFA Good or Excellent Hips, OFA Normal Elbows and are CERF certified annually. Our breeding dogs also are OFA Advanced Cardiac certified clear. Cresthill is one of the very few breeding kennels that submits their breeding dogs to DNA testing for PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy, RD/OSD (Retinal Dysplasia/Oculosketetal Dysplasia), CNM (Labrador Centronuclear Myopathy) and EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse)  We unconditionally guarantee that our puppies will not be AFFECTED by PRA, RD/OSD, CNM or EIC. Our goal is to produce healthy, genetically sound puppies while still preserving the breed's natural hunting abilities, instincts, trainability  and temperament.

We take great pride in breeding high quality puppies. All puppies born at Cresthill Kennels are born in our state of the art kennel and are given individual care, love, and attention. Daily contact and stimulation is important to the neurological development of young puppies, therefore, each one is handled and socialized extensively. When the puppies are ready to go home at seven weeks of age, new owners will find that dew claws have been removed, a health check has been given by my vet, and shots and wormings are up to date and in order. Puppies will have been introduced to birds and water (weather permitting) and accustomed to loud noises. We stand behind our puppies with a written 5 Year Guarantee on hips, elbows and eyes.  We unconditionally guarantee our puppies for PRA, RD/OSD, CNM and EIC. If you would like to see a copy of our guarantee please email us at 

Unless otherwise stated, a $200 deposit is required to reserve your place of pick. Prices of our puppies generally range from $1900 to $2500 depending upon the litter.  Names are placed on the waiting list in the order in which deposits are received. The deposit is fully refundable up until the litter in which you have reserved a puppy in is six weeks old.  If you would like to place a deposit on an upcoming litter please
