We hope to introduce you to our versatile breed within these pages.

Originally our breed was described as a  “water dog”, and subsequently used for retrieving felled water and upland game birds for the hunter.The Labrador today retains the same qualities of yesterday but also has become the countries favorite companion “family” dog. Whether you are looking for a pet for your family or a hunting partner, Labradors are the perfect choice.
