​​About Us

My love of dogs started with my parents. They were dog breeders. My mother's love was Poodles and my fathers was German Shepherds.  I always knew I wanted to breed; I just didn't know what breed.  Growing up I had a pair of Pekingese, several beautiful Poodles, and an adorable Cocker Spaniel. I was searching for the perfect dog.  All my research kept leading me back to the Labrador Retriever.

Finally, I found my girl Tammy - 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.  Here it is 38 years later and my love for this wonderful breed has only grown.

In 1980 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 until when1996 we retired. The move to Florida gave us the opportunity to pursue our dream 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 38 years, we have shared our life and home with our beautiful yellow, black and chocolate 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.   We make a lifelong commitment to each puppy.  We will be here today, tomorrow and anytime in the future that you may need us.  This is just a small part of what a responsible breeder does.

We are in good standing with the American Kennel Club. We have exceeded the requirements for our yearly inspection. 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 ECQ

We offer quality, healthy, socialized, home raised puppies.  Our dogs are OFA, OFEL and CERF certified.  In addition, they are all tested for EIC and PRA through DNA testing. They are bred for conformation and temperament.
