Preston: A Ruby-Star pup, brother to our very own Palin, is owned by the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind and has been officially entered into their breeding program.
We are very pleased to have this relationship with such an important organization.
His clearances are as follows: Penn hips 90%, shoulders and elbows - clear, heart echo - normal, Cerf - normal, PRA and EIC - clear.
The Guide Dog Foundation's sister organization, America's Vet Dogs - The Veteran's K-9 Corps, trains guide and service dogs for disabled veterans.
Preston's sister Paige is currently being trained for placement as a Vet dog. We are so proud of her as well.
I purchased one of Gretchen's fox red yellow labs in 2009. My girl Rue is extremely smart and an awesome hunter.
Even as a young pup she was always birdy. At eight months old she was retrieving live birds.
Since then she has retrieved pheasants, geese and many ducks.
I am extremely impressed with the way she visually tracks birds.
If you are seeking a great hunting lab I highly recommend a lab puppy from Cold Creek Farms. Will N, Oregon
We adopted our Mr. Murphy from Cold Creek Farms in June 2009. It was a wonderful experience right from the first email.
Gretchen was great to work with and we loved getting the photo updates from the date of birth until the day we picked him up.
Murphy is strong, athletic, easily trained and absolutely beautiful. We hope to get a little sister from Cold Creek Farms one day. Michele Q., Oregon
Gretchen was wonderful to work with. Willing to do anything for the puppies and/or her clients. We were very pleased with the entire experience.
Our Winston bonded to our family very quickly, has a great temperament and is very smart (we are biased of course).
It seems like most breeders talk about staying connected after the purchase and then you never hear from them again.
Gretchen is definitely the exception. She takes pride in staying involved. Phil & Angie F., Oregon
Winston Update: WE LOVE OUR DOG!!!!! He is 8 months old now and he has exceeded our expectations!
He goes swimming, running, kayaking, hiking, flying, water skiing, auto racing (car noise does not bother him a bit), and
even sat on a paddle board with me for an hour last week while I paddled.
The place where we rented the paddle boards was amazed, claimed that "They had never seen a dog do as well before."
He is great with other animals (the doggie daycare favorite) and kids. Exceptionally smart, calm, loving and good looking.
I have personal trained a few puppy's that came from Cold Creek Farms, my experience has been great.
They are so well balanced and very intelligent to work with - Joe Catiglione,
