For Sale/Trade: RainShadow Lab Puppies
« on: May 02, 2023, 08:34:45 AM »
Available for Reservation/Deposit!

RainShadow Labradors Lily / Milo Litter born April 15, 2023. Available for Pickup/Delivery June 24.

1 Black Male
1 Choc Female
3 Choc Males

(The rest are already spoken for.)

At rainshadowlabradors.com we pride ourselves in producing excellent Lab Puppies who are conditioned and trained (Yes, at 10 weeks!) to LISTEN! 

Our puppies never live feral when humans are present. They respect the gate, they respect the food tray, they respect the person (jumping, yapping, etc), they're learning all the commands related to a leashed walk around the property, they're learning 100% proper fetching form during play training sessions, they listen for command, they listen for release, they are already programmed to respect... yes, at 10 weeks!

They're "Started" and ready for you to take over!

We don't use negative re-enforcement, we don't use treat training, (although you could incorporate either, seamlessly) and we've had AMAZING results in our pups!

Pups have dew claws removed, ENS therapy from Day 5,  RainShadow Puppy Conditioning from 4 weeks, De-worming, Immunization Shots 1 and 2, and are AKC papered without restrictions. 

(Parents are both OFA Excellent Hips & Normal Elbows, live a hunting/companion lifestyle, and have perfect eyes and health. Sire has 18 Blings on his pedigree, including a great grandfather NAFC.)

Contact me to reserve a Pup for late June!

Back home from a working weekend, and back into ENS therapy...

The sessions are different now that we have Eyes and Ears, in addition to Nose!

I'm doing every step of the therapy with the puppy right in my face, giving it calming reassuring tones, and then loves and snuggles AS SOON as the puppy stops struggling. This is INSTANTLY being received and understood by these babies, as they immediately go into deeper calm and trust. (Oh. Ok... you've got me, I'm ok.)

Seems minor and inconsequential, but I'm finding it's huge in establishing the trust and reliance on the human for security and calm.

They're ALREADY LISTENING!!!!

We start the ENS Therapy at day 4, as they get to this age (26 days) we’re ending ENS and transitioning to food dish manners.

The last stage of ENS is with a different focus: Puppy making eye contact with me, hearing me, relating the familiar breath with the voice… THEN I give positive feedback when the switch from struggle to calm.

Through this exercise, they’re prepared to see me, hear my voice, and understand that when I switch to positive feedback (the praising, loving, happy-with-them affectionate voice) that they’re doing the desired behavior. They’re ready to start sitting and waiting for their food… and they’re not even weaning yet!

Here’s a video from today…

They’re ready to start the real puppy conditioning!

Introducing slurried food today, weaning probably by next week.

Boys (that’s all I have left) are 1000$ OBO/Trade





I am also looking for a very worthy recipient of one of these excellent pups for free. Prefer youth or senior who is both prepared and interested, but I will consider any worthy nominations.

Ideal hunting or service pups. They’ll be prepared for training and assimilation better than any other puppies on the market.

Please feel free to nominate a recipient!

Short video describing how I introduce the first servings of puppy food to the pack… attention goes to the HUMAN, not the food. Setting a lifelong pattern.

A guy sold me a lab for $40 when I was a teenager. I spent an hour per day training for a year… best dog I’ve ever heard of, much less owned. 200yd hand signals for complete strangers… stop mid retrieve, lie down, cast to a different bird, deliver, return to first bird, deliver, all on specific commands… literally out of sight salt water retrieves on diving cripples… in training she would fetch triples stopping and switching several times between dummies, all on command… she would literally flip my arm into the air until I woke up when she had to go, instead of going in the house… no force fetch, no negative reinforcement

If you know of a recipient who will appreciate the opportunity and take it very seriously, (potentially field trialing, or other legitimate goals) nominate them!

Excellent FIRST session waiting for food!

Caught the whole thing on video!

4yo interrupted, but merely a side show to how quickly these babies “Get It!”




Inquiries, but still 4 boys unreserved as of this posting…

Pretty cool to watch. Won't take long at all and they will know. I am a firm believer in starting them young with all manners like this

Cute Puppy Video!
Demo video (if you’ve been following along) on transitioning the audibles from just emotion to actual command words… Back, Sit, and Food. They don’t even realize they’re learning!

I’m using what they know (food dish manners training) to train a new concept (a praise word that is NOT a release.) Really makes them listen specifically! They’re not just listening for an emotion. Or for words (talking to the camera is a helpful tool too!) Instead, they’re listening for the specific word “FOOD!”

I’m teaching them the word “Good” in a smooth happy pleased tone, and incorporating it with petting and individual attention and special focus, but then if they assume it’s a release, they immediately get the teakettle flip!
     They get it quickly! It’s what they hear when they’re doing it right, but they’re not supposed to go to the next thing yet.
     Perfect scenario to teach!

Still have 4 boys available.

Not really any ideal candidate for a scholarship/service pup yet.

I didn’t realize the chocolate boy was behind me sitting dutifully until I felt him there! I was holding up a tray full of sloshing slurried food.
     (That’s typically why I wear crocs and do lots of this with my toes, my hands are often full.)

Six weeks and three days!

Four boys still available!

Hi Rain,
I finally got around to watching your videos.  Nice work on the training/conditioning of all those pups already at 6 weeks!

Wondering if you're interested in a trade for the last black male for one of my Griffs?  Feel free to PM to discuss details or exchange numbers.

I sure love my versatile dogs based on the amount of upland I do, but labs always have a fond spot in my heart from back in my youth/teenage years.

HH,  All my dogs are individually owned, and all the owners of my pack still live with me! My house is kinda crowded! (People [9] AND dogs [5] !) I really can't add right now.
     I'm going to retire my Matriarch this year, and just hunt her and love on her. Then after the two other girls retire out, (Hopefully they'll be MOVED out by then too!) I want to take a break and focus on my damascus knives.
     If we do get back into whelping pups, my wife wants to consider going with a more designer dog. I hate the idea, but the pet market sure seems to favor useless and genetically weakened dogs. I sure love my solid, garbage gut, happy-go-lucky, 200 word vocabulary Labs! But I might moderate her idea a little and go with a compromise, like maybe Goldens.
     In any case, my dog career is going to take a pause after a couple more litters... (I HOPE other breeders pick up the puppy conditioning ideas, it's so much better for Dog Kind in general...) so I can't take on another pup right now.

Second black boy is available though, they're doing great in the focus and attention work... if you want to trade me a nice 1911 or something?!?!?!

Yeah sounds like a full house for sure!  No problem then. 

Sounds like you have some plans to slow down but are still 're plenty busy.

I have a colt commander (alloy frame, 4") that are kind of unique and it doesn't get packed much anymore that I'd consider.  PM if interested.

GLWS and I'll ask around if anyone I know is looking for a male Lab.

It's funny, I didn't even realize in this video, one puppy was way behind me, back at the gate, sitting and waiting, doing his duty like the rest, didn't break until released even though he had a free open shot to the dish... and I didn't even notice as I was filming these 9!



Several inquiries going, but still 4 boys available. 1 black 3 chocolate.

Still looking for a scholarship/homeschool project pup, or service dog recipient. Feel free to nominate someone!

Thanks 2many, this litter is doing fantastic!


I had to get the Iconic RainShadow Labradors photo from this litter too!

They’re sitting there… because I told them to!

They’ve been doing versions of this since 4 weeks, nice and neat and as long as I want them to like this for over a week, but this pic is 7 weeks and 4 days.

A couple former pups visited today, did a couple water retrieves with the whole group…

Mom (choc), Dad (center black w/o collar), grandma, aunt, half brother, full sister…



Leia, the ‘queen of the world spoiled house dog’ (next litter mom, yellow) will sit and fetch but she won’t lie down with the rest of those peasants!

Rachel, the kid trainer, hasn’t fully comprehended the side of the fetching stick she’s supposed to be on!

THANK GOODNESS!!!!

I panicked a couple nights ago when my wife suggested that my daughter could take 2 of the last 3 and we could take the last one as a playmate for our other Rinshadow Lab.

Second (Last) Immunization today, second leash walk, first bath... They're getting it! A couple are still acting a little young for leash, as they're still very bonded to the littermates, but getting them out of eye/earshot tunes them in and they're getting it.

All this litter is “home” now!

Got a litter of all blacks on the ground now! Last litter of the year for us (if I can help it!)

I’ll post another thread soon…
