Welcome to our website we hope you enjoy the information here.
We aim to breed healthy, intelligent and sound Labs for a purposeful life. Pete and I have been breeding ANKC registered Labs since under our Tapua Prefix since 2007, I have been breeding ANKC registered Kelpie, Borders Collies and Australian Cattle Dogs since 1991, I have been a member of Dogs NSW since 1986.
Our dogs are competitive in the show/obedience and retrieval trail rings. Some have competed and won at State and National obedience State and National level, as well as multiple 1st places at Sydney Royal over the years. We focussing on a balance moderate style of Lab who is an all-rounder epitomizing the intelligence, loyalty, and versatility of this breed.
Our dual-purpose dogs have strong retrieval, focus, and drive but also a 'switch off ability' and can settle and be the gentle loving Labs we all know and love. We are, however, most proud of our many service, assistance and scent detection dogs. They are the focus of our breeding program and potential owners of service/assistance dogs are given priority over companion dogs.
All breeding stock has full Certified DNA Profile covering all known disease, traits, and the 3 colours known to Labradors, our lines do not carry the dilute gene. Details are on our website. We have bred more than 100 autism support, scent detection, truffle hunting PTSD dogs - we are proud that our dogs have a purposeful life.
All pups are wormed, vaccinated and microchipped. All our litters experience Early Neurological Stimulation, sound desensitization and are raised in an enriched environment.
Most pups are sold to service homes or organizations that train or breed service dogs and are well known for their ability and temperamental.
We welcome visitors to our kennels.
Main Registration pups are available by arrangement.
