Henry is doing great and has started daycare where he already has many friends. Here is a pic of his first day.


We just wanted to send you some pictures of our Sadie girl. She turned 10 yesterday!!!! We had a little party for her.
I just can't thank you enough for breeding such a great pup!

Thanks again,

Hi Pam,

Just want to give you a quick update on our new family member.

‘Tiller’ is an absolute joy! She adapts very quickly to new surroundings and seems to be quite intelligent. She has only whined for her old playmates the first couple of days, but she is finding new friends in her new neighborhood.


Thanks for breeding excellent dogs, and I hope you still continue to do so.

You may be getting inquiries about new litters as a lot of people at work have been getting an earful/eyeful about your wonderful dogs.

Hi Pamela,
Just wanted to send you this and give you an update on the puppy. First off we finally decided on a name and it's Gunner. We really like it.

He is doing very well and adjusting to his new life and schedule. We have been potty training him with the bell system and he already knows how to hit the bell with his nose and goes out to go potty. This is working great! He is a smart dog and very handsome and so cute! As you can see he is growing fast! We are enjoying every minute with him and are so happy to have him in our family.

Thanks again for everything and I would love to keep in touch with you and just send you photos every now and then of Gunner.
Take care and keep in touch.


Kennel Testimonials 

Hi Pamela,
I was just wanting to touch base with you on one of the puppies we bought from you. Kiana was born on Jan.29th and we picked her up on the 20th of March, they day after our daughters birthday. Kiana is our cabin pup and lives in White Mountain with my husband's dad. We recently brought her into Anchorage a couple weeks ago and she was spayed about 1 1/2 weeks ago. She is doing just fine. We have her here in Anchorage until the end of the month then she goes back to White Mountain.

She is such a good girl. Very laid back and such a cuddler. She likes being right beside you at all times. She follows us around the house. She is a good ball retriever. She is just a gentle little girl. Everyone she meets just loves her.

Twelve weeks old tomorrow. Growing like a weed. Most loving and mellow puppy ever. We are always getting compliments on how chill he is for his age. I am quite amazed myself.





Hi Pam,

Sorry its been a while since we sent pictures. We are all moved in to our new house. Mayter loves it out here. He has a great yard to run around in. He is so great with our kids! Everyone who comes over and meets him says what a great dog he is. He fits in the family perfect. We have even been considering getting another. When/If we do we will be giving you a call. Send more pictures later. Thank you so much!

Just wanted to let you know we think you're doing a wonderful and responsible job with your breeding. We have a dog walking business in Anchorage and have walked 3 dogs that came from you all.....Venny, Maggie, and Otto (I saw Venny and Maggie on your testimonials). Venny was the first of the 3 that we walked and he's always been one of our favorites!! All our walkers adore him and everyone always says what a wonderful temperament he has. Then we met Maggie and right away I knew she must be related to Venny (especially after I walked her the first time!). They look very much alike but more importantly, she also has that same great temperament that we've loved so much in Venny (and we found out that they were, in fact, litter mates). We walk hundreds of dogs in Anchorage and work with many dogs that have behavioral issues....aggression, fear, etc. We do a lot of socializing fearful or aggressive dogs so they can learn to live a more balanced and happy life. Dogs like Maggie and Venny are the PERFECT dogs to help us do the job because they understand when they need to ignore a dog or when it's ok to say hello. I took Maggie with me today to help a dog who has been having some dog aggression issues and hasn't been able to be around other dogs in a really long time. Though we do our introductions very carefully and slowly, after just a couple of days, Maggie was helping this dog soooo much (showing her that she didn't have to freak out when saw other dogs and that she can actually have doggie friends!) and they were giving each other kisses by the end of our walk :) Dogs like Maggie and Venny have helped so many dogs that we walk just by being good role models. We attribute this to good owners and a very good breeder, who understands how important it is to breed for good temperament :) We wish there were more out there like you all cause we would love to have about 50 more clients like Maggie and Venny!!! They are truly a pleasure to take care of. I attached a couple of photos I've taken of them too (lying down is Venny, standing is Maggie)....and there are a couple on both of our websites too..... www.anchoragedogwalkers.com and www.alaskapetprints.com . Keep up the good work, DeEtta and Chad Carl

Hi it's me Emma Nelson from Port Lions, Alaska. My dad Thomas Nelson had bought a puppy from you in 2001. I was sending you another update on what Shadow looks like. I'm not sure if I told you last time how many tricks he knows, but I'm going to tell you again if you didn't remember. He knows how to: sit, stay, lay down, roll over, back up, which hand, spin, jump through a hoop, play soccer, beg, itch him self on command, play dead, shake, leave it, and jump. I lost track of all the tricks he know, but this is most of them. He is a really good dog and loves to go swimming he but what lab doesn't? Shadow can even run up to 29mph! If it wasn't for you I wouldn't have him. Well I hope you enjoyed the pictures

I love that picture it is on my desktop! I will watch the website for pups! We just love her, she is the best dog I have ever owned.

p.s. we did change her name to Sandy (sounds like Candy) she didn't seem to mind

I'll be in touch!

Cooper!  He really has been great. We have made a lot of progress and he has been able to come to work with me everyday. He is everything I was looking for. Thanks again!


After our first week I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful puppy we have. He is delightful and goes everywhere with us. Even the cats like him! He has never tried to chase them so they come sit near him now.
His name is “Zealand” but we call him “Fatty Crumbcakes.”

Pam, Venny (a.k.a. Adventure) has grown into quite a handsome dog. He is admired throughout the neighborhood during his many walks. He has several dog friends that he loves to play with and hasn’t met anyone yet that he doesn’t like. I thought you’d like a couple of pictures. The one with my kids is our Christmas card this year.

Pam, I am so very happy to have found Dornschatten Kennels!  The companionship Dornschatten Classy has provided me is absolutely wonderful!  Classy has everything I've wanted in a pet and companion.  She is beautiful in every way, has a truly loving personality, and meets every desire I had as I searched for the dog I wanted to complete my family.

Thank you for your efforts in producing quality Labradors.  You will always hold my warmest appreciation.

My name is Mark Giustina and I live in Eugene, Oregon and I am very interested in owning a Lab. My best friend John Murphy purchased his dog Charlie from you a few years back. I have never been so impressed with a dog. I would love to be able to get a male Lab sometime this summer. Could you please let me know what my options might be.

Hi Pam,
Maggie, who I got from your Countess/Bentley litter just turned a year old and I was wondering what you feed your adult dogs? Maggie is the most wonderful companion, I absolutely adore her and can not imagine life without her.

Thank you,
Jocelyn Friedman

Hello Pamela,

I have a black lab, Oog, almost ten years old now, son of a black lab, Crow, that we purchased as a pup from your kennel back in 1992--she just died this year. Both dogs are/were the most wonderfully sensitive, bold, intelligent, gorgeous creatures I've ever laid eyes on.

I'd like to get another pup, as I can't imagine life without some version of Oog and Crow in it.

I live on Adak Island, but will be in Anchorage 22-25 October and 3-4 November. Is there any chance you'll have a litter to pick from? I'd really like another black dog, with the same stocky "English" build as Crow and Oog. Crow was by Onxy, out of a yellow dam--I think her name was Bumblebee?

I hope to hear from you soon,


Hi Pam!
We got our lab from you in 2001 Sadie.
We are military and were in Fairbanks when we got her.
We look at your site often.
We now live in Hampton, Virginia and have a 1 year old son. I wanted to share some pics of Sadie with Rylee. She is so good with him:)

See our pics here:

Take care and enjoy the pics.

Dornschatten Labradors are English style AKC certified Yellow Labradors. All puppies are veterinarian checked, have first shot, wormings and declaws removed before going to their new homes at approximately 7 weeks of age. The parents are tested and certified for elbows, heart, hips, eyes and more. The puppies are guaranteed for hips, eyes, and misc. health issues. I also  have several Champion males available for stud service.to good tempered, AKC Labrador females with certified hips and eyes.  And sometimes, I have an older puppy or dog available for a new home.

Founded in 1979 under the name of GNL, Dornschatten Kennels is a Serious Hobby Kennel with an emphasis on breeding the ultimate healthy, charming and handsome Labrador Retriever for lifelong companions. The bloodlines are the English type of Lab with stocky heads and CALM TEMPERAMENTS. While previously field and obedience were participated in, the current involvement is conformation shows which also judge for temperament and athletic ability. Many of the puppies I have bred have become HUNTING COMPANIONS and obedience stars, as well as conformation Champions. But the best compliment is the one that I often receive from the new owners which is that the dog is the best one they have ever had.
