Vancouver Island Labradors
Your family's new best friend. Black and Chocolate and Yellow
Labradors backed by our temperament and health guarantee.
For over thirty years we have been connecting Labrador Retreiver puppies and owners to create bonds that last a lifetime. People travel from all over Vancouver Island, BC and North America based on the reputation of our dogs. Our labs are large, friendly, working class labradors that are registered with the Canadian Kennel Club.
Our Breeding Process
Health and Genetic Testing
All of our females are Canadian Kennel Club registered dogs. They all have passed their OFA testing. This means that our dogs are purebred Labradors and their hips, knees and elbows show no sign of genetic disease related problems. We also take a lot of pride in the care we give our dogs and always do anything for them our vet recommends.
It is very important to us that we breed for healthy dogs! To do this we breed for health and temperament qualities first and looks second. We go through a rigorous process to make sure the dogs we use are healthy, happy and that we keep the genetic pool very wide. One of they ways we do that is by mixing the two different styles of Labradors to get tall and sturdy built dogs.
Our dogs are large in size, eager to please, and easy going, with excellent health.
All of our dogs live in our home with us. They are free to come in and out of the house as they please. We also have a one acre property that they are free to roam during the day. We have a dedicated puppy area in our home that is our puppy nursery. This is where are puppies are born and live. They also have indoor and outdoor access at all times. We are very proud to say that each of dogs are very loved, they have lots of attention and cuddles everyday. You are welcome to come and visit. Please contact us to book an appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are your dogs American or English style?
They are both! We have mixed the two styles of Labradors over the years to get taller, heavily built Labradors with big heads. Our dogs are usually around 80 Lbs fully grown. We take great care in picking and pairing the breeding pairs to get healthy dogs with great temperaments.
Do you have any puppies left for 2021?
Please see the "deposits (online store)" tab for availability. You can also look at the "planned 2021 litters" tab to read about the litters. Once the puppies are born we will email our waitlist with any extra puppies that become available. So even if we have sold out of deposits for the year we may still have puppies that become available. Please sign up for our waitlist if you would like to be notified about any puppy availability.
Saturna Island? Can we come visit?
Saturna Island is one of the Gulf Islands off of Vancouver Islands South East coast. You can visit us on Saturna Island by taking the ferry from Swartz Bay in Sidney BC. Clients and potential clients are welcome to book an appointment with us to come visit. Also for each litter we will pick one Saturday where we bring the puppies to Sidney BC where you can pick up your puppy. This way you do not have to make the trip to Saturna Island if you do not want to.
Do you ever have adult or senior dogs to adopt?
Rarely! However, once in a while we do have a adult dog to re-home. Part of our guarantee is that no matter what happens in your life we will take one of our dogs back if you can no longer keep it for any reason. In those cases we make sure to re-home our dogs to the perfect family. If you would to be added to our waitlist for adult dogs please contact us and let us know.
We have sold out of deposits for 2021.
But we will likely have more puppies become available throughout the year!
We only take 8 deposits per litter in advance and there are almost always more than 8 puppies per litter. So if you sign up for our waitlist you will be notified as more puppies become available in 2021.
