Crest Labradors
Welcome to the home page of Crest Labradors.
Established in 1984

I have a small private kennel in Michigan.
I started my breeding program in 1984 breeding Akita's.

My breedings are researched and planned to produce
wonderful temperaments, good health and soundness;
following the AKC breed standards.
My goal is for my dogs to accomplish great things.
Be it in the show ring, obedience or as family companions.
I am a member (in good standing) with:
Akita Club of America
American Kennel Club
IABCA
Macomb Kennel Club
MAPBD
(Michigan Association for Purebred Dogs)
United Kennel Club
OUR
LABRADORS
I breed only Show bred/English Labradors not
Field/American Labs.
I also only breed AKC yellow & black color puppies .
Anyone that claims they have Silver or Charcoal color
Labs are not breeding by the Labrador breed standards.
What is the difference you ask?
Show bred Labs- (also known as English) generally are shorter in leg, have a
heavier body with more bone. Thick, short tails (otter like) and a much thicker,
fuller coat than a field Lab. They also have a shorter muzzle, wider/broader  
head and smaller ears. Their temperaments are wonderful and they are eager to
please their owners. They are low-key overall and calm natured.


Field bred Labs-  (also known as American) have longer legs and lighter body.
Their coats aren't as thick and tails are longer and thinner. Heads are not as
broad, with a longer muzzle and bigger ears. They have high energy, also known
as lots of "drive". They are bred for hunting and field trials, not so much as
house pets.
