My love of dogs started when I was a child. My parents were dog breeders. They raised Poodles and German Shepherds.  I always knew I wanted to breed; I just didn't know what breed.   All my research kept leading me back to the Labrador Retriever.

Armed with my research and knowing what breed I wanted I searched far and wide for my perfect Labrador.  On a cold and snowy day in December 1980 I finally found my girl!  Tamera - Lady Tamera of Stonehaven. She would go on to be the foundation for what is today's Stone Haven Labradors.  The rest as they say is history.  39 years later my love for this wonderful breed has only grown.

Stonehaven Labradors was established on Long Island.  For those who are not familiar Long Island is part of New York State.  We raised Labradors there for 16 years. In 1996 we retired and moved to Florida.  This gave us the opportunity to pursue our dreams full time.  We are in North Central Florida just west of Ocala and one and a half hours north of Orlando and Tampa.
 
For over 39 years, we have shared our life and home with our beautiful Labrador Retrievers and their offspring.  They are not just our life, but our passion.  Our Labradors have always been part of our family.  We share our home with them, or maybe they share their home with us.  When we have puppies in the nursery our whole life revolves around them for the next 8 weeks.  They take priority over everything else.  Here at Stone Haven socialization is not just another word. If you are looking for a quality English type yellow, black or chocolate Labrador puppy with the typical big, blocky head, short cobbie body, wide otter tail, outstanding personality and amazing temperament look no further.   

In the dog world it is bad form to take another breeder's kennel name.  Two other Labrador breeders started using Stonehaven.  One did not realize the name had been in use for many years and graciously changed their name and web site immediately.  To them I say, "thank you".  To build your reputation on another breeder's experience is not the way to build your own.  The other is still using our name so in 2014 we were granted the sole use of the kennel name Stone Haven by the American Kennel Club.  We are the only breeders of Labrador Retrievers authorized to use the name Stonehaven or Stone Haven. Please be wary of any other breeder using our name.

We are in good standing with the American Kennel Club and have exceeded the requirements for our bi-annual inspection.  We are a licensed kennel here in Marion County. We have also exceeded the requirements of our semi-annual inspection through Marion County.  Although we do not have an actual kennel.  All of our dogs live in our home with us.  At any time, you can find one or two sleeping on our bed. 

We are members of the National Labrador Retriever Club and the East Coast Quality Breeders Association.   In 2008, we were named one of five Master Breeders by the ECQBA.

We offer quality, healthy, socialized, home raised puppies bred for conformation and temperamemt.  Our dogs are OFA or Penn Hip, OFEL

and CERF certified.  In addition, they are all tested for CNM, DM, EIC,
HNPK, PRA-PRCD, DRD1 and SD2 through DNA testing.
