Oakdale Labradors is a small hobby kennel located in Central Alabama. Since 1978 we have been dedicated to the English type, dual purpose Labrador: a dog with beauty and brains---BLACKS, YELLOWS, CHOCOLATES. We have bred conformation Champions, AKC Junior, Senior and Master Hunters, UKC Hunting Retriever Champions, as well as, numerous fireside and hunting companions.

We breed to the AKC standard as required by The Labrador Retriever Club in which we have been members for over 30 years. We pride ourselves on breeding excellent, calm temperaments and sound bodies. As professional breeders we health test our dogs, before any are bred, for the tests
recommended by the LRC, Inc.

We are active in both the ring and the field. We spent many years judging Hunt Tests at all levels and our dogs have been featured on Ducks Unlimited apparel, dog food bags and a few books. We are members of the Greater Atlanta Labrador Retriever Club and the Labrador Retriever Club, Inc. (National Club).

We place pups to ONLY approved homes on limited registration and prefer getting to know you by personal communication, via: Phone, Email, Visits, Referrals. As reputable breeders we want to get to know you as potential Oakdale Family members.
