English Lab Breeders in Central Virginia
We are English Lab breeders located in Central Virginia. We focus on breeding English Labs who are beautiful and healthy dogs, with outstanding temperaments, and who will make loyal companions for many years.
I have always been an animal lover. I worked on my uncle’s farm every summer and worked at a horse stable also. I’d take in strays or whatever seemed to follow me home.
My love for English Labrador Retrievers really came to be when I was 14 years old. I started working at our local veterinarian clinic. One of the veterinarians I worked for was also a Labrador breeder. He would bring his dogs into work with him most days. He taught me what to look for for produce a quality Labrador— as well as the standards and integrity of what a good breeder should be. I also learned the difference between an English Labrador and an American Labrador.
That’s when I fell in love with the English style Labradors. I had the opportunity to adopt a female black Labrador, Nikki, from a client at the veterinarian’s office. Nikki wasn’t the best bred Lab, but she was mine. This is when I knew Labradors were the breed for me.
Cassie, Our Foundation Dog
When my husband and I got married, we decided to get an AKC English Labrador, a black female. That’s when we found Cassie, our foundation dog. She was my constant companion and grew up with our two sons—the perfect family dog, as she loved being around and helping to raise our kids. She was a great companion and protector, and loved to go out and hunt birds on the weekends.
Cassie was everything we hoped for. We decided to breed her, and that’s when we knew we wanted to be English Lab breeders, and started our breeding program. —
