Welcome to Family Yellow Labs

The Double D Ranch is located an hour and a half east of Seattle, between Cle Elum and Ellensburg, Washington. We are a small hobby breeder specializing in AKC Yellow Labrador Retriever puppies for hunters and families.

Breaking from the trend of focusing on either “show” OR “hunting”, our goal is to blend the best of both into that big, beautiful lab you used to find - that loving dog that would hunt its heart out and then come home happy to lie at your feet or play gently with the kids.

We breed to produce dogs that are beautiful enough to make you proud, healthy enough to impress your vet, smart enough to be the head of their obedience class; who will do anything to please you – dedicated to being your best friend, and still be the hard-working hunter that will make your buddies stinkin’ jealous.

Our buyers tell us we are doing all that - many have come back for a second pup! We raise only one or two litters a year to enable us to give them all the loving care they need.
