WHY WE'RE DIFFERENT
Full registration is only available
to approved conformation homes.
Based on years of research conducted through their canine training program, the US military learned that early neurological stimulation exercises could have important and lasting effects. Their "BioSensor" program focused on how early neurological stimulation could provide a dog with a superior advantage. Each workout involved handling puppies once each day and one at a time while performing a series of five exercises. The handler completes the series from beginning to end before starting with the next puppy. The handling of each puppy once per day involves the following exercises: tactical stimulation (between toes), head held erect, head pointed down, supine position, and thermal stimulation.
The following benefits have been observed in canines that were exposed to the BioSensor stimulation exercises: improved cardio vascular performance, stronger heart beats, stronger adrenal glands, more tolerance to stress, and greater resistance to disease.
Therefore, Bella Notte Labradors actively apply the Super Dog, BioSensor techniques on all of our litters from age 3-16 days old.

Bella Notte Labradors is located in the rolling countryside of Hickory, Pennsylvania, approximately 30 minutes south of Pittsburgh.
Years of careful selection has provided exceptional Labradors with flawless temperaments, excellent health, and beautiful conformation.
We strive to produce the Ideal
Companion Dog for your family.
Why BioSensor Training Works
Newborn puppies possess closed eyes and a limited capacity digestive system that requires periodic stimulation by their mother, which, in turn, promotes digestion. Newborn pups are also limited to only being able to smell, suck, and crawl. During these first few weeks of immobility, the immature and under-developed canines are sensitive to a restricted class of stimuli.
How Our Puppies are Bred
As we are a hobby breeder, we only breed one or two litters a year, though considerable care is put into the pairings for each of these litters. Parents have been chosen not only for their health clearances, but also for their beautiful conformation and flawless temperaments.
We breed with the intention to keep one or two puppies
for the future of our breeding program.
Puppies are sold on a Limited Registration basis, which means that the dog is registered but no litters produced by that dog are eligible for registration.
This ultimately allows us to protect our breeding program. The Limited Registration designation, though, does allows for a dog to be registered for the following events: AKC Obedience, Tracking, Field Trials, Hunting Tests, Herding, Lure Coursing, Agility, and Earthdog.
After both show puppies and those who will further our breeding program have been selected, puppies are sold on a first come, first serve basis. We do suggest reserving your place in the order to pick from the litter as most litters are sold well before they are ready to go home at 8 weeks old.
