Oakdale is a small hobby kennel dedicated to the dual purpose labrador since 1978: a dog with beauty and brains. We have bred conformation champions, AKC junior, senior and master hunters, UKC hunting retriever champions, as well as many fireside and hunting companions. We are on 120 acres in middle Alabama just outside of Jemison.

We pride ourselves on breeding excellent, calm temperaments and sound bodies. We believe in the "true Labrador type": the type of Labrador that makes a fine gun dog and retriever, and can win in the breed ring. A powerful, wise and kind dog. We are active in both the ring and the field. We not only have numerous show champions carrying the Oakdale name, spent many years judging Hunt Tests at all levels, Oakdale Labradors have been featured on Ducks Unlimited apparel, dog food bags, in newspaper articles, and in a couple of books. I know what dual purpose is!

That is an Oakdale Labrador. We OFA and CERF, long time members of the Labrador Retriever Club Inc. and the Greater Atlanta Labrador Retriever Club.
