Chad and Lori have always loved retrievers and the outdoors.  Chad has been raising Labrador retrievers for over 20 years.  They married and established Docheno Kennels LLC. in 2012.  Chad takes pride in finding the perfect pedigrees in order to produce top performing Labrador retrievers and they spend all their free time loving these remarkable animals.

Our pups atDocheno Kennels receive early neurological stimulation, have dew claws removed, first set of shots, worming, plus abundant amounts of attention and love!  Before they go home with their new owners, Docheno puppies are introduced to the water, gun fire at a distance, birds, crate training, riding around to new play areas in ATV (crate) and all the noises of normal home/farm life.  They see horses, cats, deer, turkey and several other wildlife.  Not to mention lots of fun times playing with Tyler!web4

When you purchase a new pup from us, in order for your 26 month guarantee on hips and eyes, we require that you include “DOCHENO” or “DOCHENO’s” in the AKC Registered Name.  Also, the guarantee is NOT transferable, it is only valid with the origional owner that purchases the pup from Docheno Kennels.  Guarantee is also void if dog is on trial for sale.

We ask that you pick up your pup no later thank 8 weeks of age.  After 8 weeks, Docheno Kennels is happy to work out boarding and training (with fees) until you are able to get your pup.

We are happy to send your pup via pet-ship with Delta Cargo.  There are also dog haulers that travel in trucks/vans that can be helpful in getting your new pup home.  Fee’s and shipping will apply and can be worked out with Chad.
