I’ve been buying pets from her for 30 years, I happily drive 18 hours round trip to purchase pets from empress for multiple reasons. 1st and foremost, with having followed this woman for 30 years I have never once see. Her do one single thing without the health of her dogs, and the breed at the foremost of her mind. Second, I know what I’m getting, and again I know the money I’ve invested is going towards the betterment of the breed. People that think labs are some super high energy breed that is difficult to train have never experienced a well bred lab. I highly recommend them as a breeder, but if you still aren’t sold, atleast narrow your search to reputable breeders that have the best interest of the dogs at the forefront of thier program.

Truly a one of a kind experience. Dawn has a deep love and appreciation for all of her pups, big and small. I have never seen such pampered pups. The puppies are all genetically screened and come with with an AKC certification. Dawn is very strict about the food regimen and routine to follow when the pups go home with you to ensure that they are happy and healthy in their new home. We are so grateful to have found Dawn and the pups at Empress. Piggy has been the easiest puppy to train, love, and enjoy. We absolutely recommend Dawn to anyone looking to expand their family with a new dog. We will be returning to her when we are ready for more!

Repeat customer but had a bad experience the second time around with Empress due to the owners poor communication and elitist attitude. Never did get my puppy though she did refund my deposit. She does breed nice dogs but so do many others. I would look elsewhere.
