Carolyn Cabot, a licensed veterinary technician and certified master dog trainer, has been breeding dogs on and off for the last 15 years. She started out breeding, training and competing with her Cane Corsos. When she attended the Tom Rose School for dog trainers in High Ride, MO, she met several Labs that forever changed her opinion about the breed. The puppy in the picture below is one of her foundation dogs named Dexter.
She and Dex had quite a few trials and tribulations their first two years together, but he now has a place in Carolyn's heart that can be filled by no other. Her original plan for Dexter was that he excel in competitive obedience and be her demo dog for her dog training business; however, a knee injury at a young age sidelined him for several months, costing them valuable time during the imprinting window.
As she shifted her plan for Dexter, she was fascinated watching his natural instincts develop and realized she was wasting his potential. This sparked her interest in learning how to hone those natural instincts, ultimately leading her into the joyous black hole that is bird dog training. Carolyn hasn't looked back ever since!
Her love and appreciation for Dexter lead her to spend countless hours researching pedigrees and breeders to find other Labs similar to him. She knew she wanted to get back into breeding, and was totally smitten with this British Lab. This breeding program has been over 5 years in the making, with the first litter born in September, 2017. While on this journey to constantly better her breeding and puppy raising practices, Carolyn discovered a program called Puppy Culture. Please check out the Puppy Raising Practices page (linked below as well) to learn more about how we raise our puppies.
As a licensed veterinary technician, Carolyn also understands the value and importance of genetic testing and health screening. All of her dogs are extensively health tested, the results of which can be found on their individual pages. Actual copies of the paperwork are available upon request.
Breeding, genetics, and raising/training puppies are Carolyn's passion. She's always happy to answer any questions about her practices or her dogs. Thanks for taking a look around our website! Please don't hesitate to reach out to learn more about our dogs, puppies, litters and breeding practices.
