Hello and welcome to Penny Lane Labradors, where we are committed to keeping the integrity of the Bench Bred (English) Labrador alive! We are a small show and hobby breeder located near sunny Ocala Florida that raises and shows black, yellow, and chocolate labs. I have owned Labradors my whole life and had the privilege of growing up in a home full of Labs and learning much of what i know and practice today, from my mother and mentor, Michelle at Quail Meadow labradors. She passed her passion for the breed on to me at a young age and I now have almost 20 years of breeding, whelping, and training experience, and a lifetime of love for the breed that i credit to her.
Our goal is to raise quality puppies with that thick and blocky conformation, excellent health, with testing not just of their parents, but all the way back through their pedigrees, and that sweet friend to all temperament that labs are so famously known for. All of our Labradors are AKC registered and come from excellent show lines. They each have been tested through The Orthopedic Foundation (OFA) with their genetic testing completed through embark. With the lines we raise and traits we strive for, if you are looking for a thin athletic dog with a lot of energy and drive for sporting and hunt, we are probably not the right fit for you. Our desire is to produce gentle giants that will be show stoppers in the ring.
Our puppies are raised inside our home alongside our children and started on early socialization from day one that continues throughout the 8 weeks they are with us. We want confident puppies that will adjust well to the world around them, so we take this part of raising them very seriously. We also start on a regimen of early deworming, vaccination, wholistic food and vitamins. Proper early nutrition and health are crucial. Before going to their new homes, each puppy is UTD on the appropriates shots and preventives and checked over thoroughly by our vet and given a clean bill of health, clear fecal test and Florida Health Certificate. We also microchip each puppy and have you register them to your name and information the day they go home. Each one will go home on a spay and neuter contract with limited AKC paperwork unless talked about in advance and approved ahead of time. Please contact us with any questions and be sure to check out our adoption process.
