CiaoBella Labrador Retrievers
Pronounced: Chow Bella Labrador Retrievers
Italian= Hello Beautiful Labrador Retrievers

As a small breeder we only produce 1-2 litters of puppies per year. We ensure that the parents of our puppies have appropriate health and genetic clearances, exhibit desirable temperaments, and conform to the AKC breed standard. We work with a highly professional team to support our breeding program. We have produced puppies who have successful careers as:
  •   Canine Ambassadors for Schools/Universities
  •   Exceptional Companion Pet Dogs
  •   Facility Dogs
  •   Medical Alert Dogs
  •   Pet Therapy Dogs
  •   Performance Sport Dogs
  •   Service Dogs
 Our breeding labs are  "working" companions with proven abilities and credentials. All of our puppies are evaluated for health, structure, and temperament. They obtain certified health clearances before they are placed with you. We believe in providing our Labrador Retrievers a high quality of life by having them fully integrated into our family. They live in our home versus a "kennel" and love to play on our 28+ acre farm in Troutville, Virginia. What differentiates us from other breeders:
  • ​ Transformative approach to puppy rearing, more
  •  33 Trait puppy temperament evaluations
  •  Two placement options: at 8 weeks and 11 weeks, more

We work hard to rear our puppies so that we can place paws of joy into your arms and hearts!
