  • Ophir Labradors began in 1987 with my passion for breeding and showing Labradors. My love for dogs has been life long but has become a lifestyle. Just ask my family! I am a serious hobby breeder and participate in the sport of showing dogs in conformation competition. My puppies have been sold to homes that hunt with them, do obedience and agility competitions but most importantly are wonderful companions and family members. I am most proud of the fact that 30 of my puppies are either working as or being trained to be service dogs with Canine Assistants. Temperament has always been my main priority along with health. My goal in breeding is to make each generation better than the last. Not always an easy task. The popularity of Labs is the scariest possible scenario for a breed, as mass over breeding occurs resulting in more and more health and temperament problems. The best of breeders are "caretakers" of the breed and make it their passion to assure that Labradors remain the wonderful breed that it is.

    I am a founding member of the Greater Atlanta Labrador Retriever Club, Inc.,a past President and current Vice President. I am also a member of the Labrador Retriever Club, Inc. and the Atlanta Kennel Club, Inc. All my adult dogs are certified with OFA for hips AND elbows, and have their eyes examined by a Board Certified Opthamologist annually. Puppies are sold on AKC Limited Registration and are fully guaranteed for health and any genetic defect. If you have any questions regarding the registration or guarantee, please call or email.

    Ophir Labradors would be not what it is today without the mentorship of Carol Heidl of Tabatha Labradors. Carol started out as my teacher and idol but has turned into the best of friends. My foundation is from her wonderful bitch line as she has entrusted me with fabulous bitches. Go to her brand new website and be truly amazed.
