Who We Are
Welcome to Calmark Labradors, a breeder of AKC-registered, English-type labradors, located in the heart of horse country, Culpeper, Virginia.
We are a small hobby kennel producing one or two litters a year with the intention of improving our lines. From each litter we will keep a puppy and place the others in pet homes. Each breeding is carefully planned. We strive to produce that well rounded, healthy, even tempered, and nice to look at Labrador. Our dogs are from Champion blood lines, that have shown in conformation, obedience, field, therapy work.
All our dogs have health clearances for OFA Hips/elbows, CERF done annually for eye disorders, Optigen for genetic eye disease, Color Doppler Echocardiogram for heart disease and EIC for Exercise Induced Collapse.
The puppies are born and raised in our play room until they are placed with their new homes. We try to mimic everyday life, different noises, floor surfaces, wood, carpet, tile, etc, grooming, bathing, nail trimming, and a lot of socialization by my grand children, family and friends. Experience being outside on dirt, grass, cement and when weather permits a swim in the kiddy pool to retrieve a toy. By seven weeks the pups will have gone for a car ride to the Vets., for a wellness checkup. All pups will go to their new homes with their age appropriate vaccines, dewormed and Veterinarian checked along with a certificate of health.
I am a proud member of the Shawangunk Kennel Club located in the Hudson Valley, New York.
