David and I share the
responsibility of care for our dogs. Most of our dogs reside with
me here at
Leather Lead Farm; however, David does have a small brood residing at
his kennel in Columbus, Ohio.
To continue to build on our kennel type, David and I take several trips
to Europe to integrate new bloodlines. Our kennel is comprised of a number of stud dogs,
which is unusual for most kennels, however, David and I prefer the male Labrador. We produce about 5
litters per year and ensure our
breeding stock is healthy by having their eyes cleared annually and
their joints certified through OFA.
