Welcome to Vetro's Duck Dogs @ Heron Oaks Ranch

About Us

Here at Vetro's Duck Dogs we breed labrador retriever gun dogs for Quality not quantity. We strive to produce a quality pup who carries a great pedigree and in doing so we breed for Temperament, High Drive, Intelligence, & Great Coats.  We also strive to match you with the best blind partner and or family pet any one could ask for. We are a new breeder that's up and coming. Although, Aly's been raised with a long line of gentlemen hunters. She's always dreamed of breeding, raising and training labs since her days in FFA.  After 30 years in healthcare and teaching at the college level she decided life would be happier raising quality hunting dogs for others to enjoy. That's when she sold her California home, moved to Southern Oregon; bought 6 ac on the Rogue River, converted a horse barn to a kennel and started compiling some of the best pedigrees around the country.  She now has several dogs working on their titles until health cleared to breed. She feels Hunt Test and Field Trail is an important aspect of a breeding Labs life as well as dog training in general. We do not train others' dogs but only train our own dogs. 

Our Goal

Our Goal is to continue to grow our pedigree line to better the Labrador breed. We do not breed dilute. We breed Black, Chocolate & Yellows. We do not breed for color but breed for the hunting pedigree, along with temperament,  intelligence, drive and coats of the dam and sire. 

What we Provide

We provide a quality genetic tested, OFA certified AKC pup you can hunt test or field trial with. As well as hunt the duck blind with a dog who has the off switch for the family home... If mama ain't happy nobody is happy.. and mama wants a nice dog in the house with the children.  Kidding aside we want you to have an all round great hunting / family companion. 

We will on occasion run a NON- Registered litter from Olive ( who is awesome) for those who want a great hunting companion with all the perks of an AKC dog without the price tag. This includes the health guarantee & health genetic testing.   Olive whelps once a year so it's important to place your deposit early on her litters. 

Once Marley & Koda Nicole are of age and health clear we will have routine AKC black and chocolate litters. Miss Gypsy has made her way to our home. Once trained and health cleared we will plan to breed her. Those of you who are looking for a Fox Red with a great heart Miss Gypsy is your girl.  We are excited and love what we do here at VDD @ Heron Oaks Ranch. We continue to learn and grow everyday. We strive to be better at what we do holding high standards always. These dogs and puppies are our family and it's what we do.
