We are Dave & Amy Granillo, we live in southern California with our kids and Labrador in wine country.
We used to grow grapes but now we grow beautiful Labrador Retrievers!
Dave is a Master Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. I’m Amy, I own a brand + web design studio. We also have a wine distribution business.
I founded & operate a national nonprofit for Marine Corps families that provides programs and workshops for spouses and children. Both of our kids hands-on volunteer at our children’s program events and they also help before and after behind the scenes.
We teach our children to work hard and through dedication comes eventually owning your own time!
We are a healthy family with a Mamma who knows clean-eating, fun in the sunshine, and holistic living is the best way to raise kids and Labs.
I fell in love with the silver lab at first sight when I was seven years old. What a gorgeous and majestic looking dog! We looked at the pedigrees and award-winning hunting lines of known silver labradors and dilute factored labradors and we knew that was the look & smartly athletic combination we wanted.
Our children raise our dogs right along with us. They love, feed, water, train, play, exercise with, snuggle, scold, and wash dogs just like we do. The life skills and memories our kids are collecting through this experience with raising our Labs is invaluable. They will grow up to be animal loving and committed people.
Both Dave & I are certified breeders by the AKC (American Kennel Club). We feel it’s important to be educated and knowledgable about the best and most healthful way to breed labradors.
We handle our own dogs at working dog trainings and certification testings and we also hands on train pups for our veterans + military families program.
I am certified in pet nutrition and I’m currently in the progress of an in depth canine nutrition certification program. (Cert.cn) It’s so interesting and has further cemented my beliefs in feeding a species appropriate diet. I have a small raw feeding community on Facebook & we run a little co-op for raw feeders in Southern California called SoCal Raw Fed Dogs.
We are proud to share that our breeding program is nationally recognized for the natural ways we rear our dogs and the holistic ways we raise them. We are also featured in the National Natural Rearing Breeder’s Directory.
2017 is dedicated to the continued training and certification of us as responsible & ethical breeders, the training and certification of our dogs, and the purchasing of more equipment and further build-out of our program’s facility.
