Labrador Retriever the #1 Dog Breed for the record breaking 23rd straight year! Our journey as a Hobby Breeder and AKC Conformation contender here at A Love Of Labs is underway. As a hobby breeder, we plan on having a maximum of two females and one male. Our desire is to keep it small so as to better include the Labs as complete family members. It has been a start and stop process as we learn and grow, and we are thoroughly enjoying ourselves. In September of 2011, we purchased our first Labrador puppy, Misty Woods Ducks On The Pond, or as we call him, Duckie. He is an AKC Registered Old Style English Labrador Retriever, out of Misty Woods Labradors. We feel he is a true representative of all that a Labrador should be: blocky head, thick body, easily trainable, driven to retrieve, totally devoted to family, a calm demeanor, and with that thick otter tail! He has multiple champions in his lineage, featuring Best In Show Champions, International Champions, American Champions, Canadian Champions, Multiple European Champions from France, England, and Finland amongst other countries. In addition, there are multiple Field Trial Champions, and Junior and Senior Hunters. We have been able to trace his ancestry back to the 1860's, back to Buccleuch Nell and Lord Malmesbury's Dog. He has ties to English Champion Sandylands Mark, English Field Trial Champion Flapper, and International Champion Sandylands Rip Van Winkle. Some of the Field Trial Champions include FC AFC CNFC CNAFC The Marathon Man, Retriever Hall Of Fame AFC FC Candlewoods Mad Mouse, and 2XNAFC Super Chief. You will find many kennels who state they are dedicated to the betterment of the breed. And while we have the same sentiments, we tend to look at this a little differently and say instead that we are dedicating ourselves to producing extraordinary examples of what a representative of the Labrador Retriever should be. So to that end we will do our best to bring all of the most desirable traits forward when we decide to breed. We believe the puppies will be well worth the wait for those who desire an exceptional addition to their family, who will be as at home in the show ring as in the field, or just lounging in front of the fire with you on those cold winter's evenings. Our boy Duckie and girl Abbie are both beautiful examples of the Labrador breed and are an integral part of our family. We are raising them up with our children as just another one of the kids with all the love and they need to become the very best they can be. Thank you for visiting A Love of Labs.
