  • Stonington, CT

Marmax Labrador Retrievers have been breeding Labs since 1978. Just by taking a quick glance at their website, you can easily see how much these breeders love and respect their dogs. Not only do they have an “Our Dogs” page, but they also have a page dedicated to their own Labrador Retrievers who have passed since they opened in 1978.

To further prove their standing, they are a part of the Pawcatuck River Labrador Retriever Club. This club only accepts breeders that are in good standing and treat their dogs respectfully. It is the only club of its kind in the area.


2. Stonecrest Labrador Retrievers

The Stonecrest Labrador Retrievers are bred by a family who has been in love with Labs and other dog breeds for years. Their dogs are all championship grade. They only breed chocolate or black Labrador Retrievers. Stonecrest is approved by the Pawcatuck River Labrador Retriever Club.

Stonecrest doesn’t always have puppies available, but they encourage you to contact them anyways. If they don’t have any puppies at the time, they will recommend you to breeders they personally know to further ensure responsible breeding for your own puppy.


3. Cross Bay Labradors

Cross Bay Labs only breed black and chocolate puppies, and they only breed their dogs once or twice a year. This breeder is approved by the Pawcatuck River Labrador Retriever Club.


4. Tanzy Labradors

Tanzy Labradors is a hobby kennel, but they take their breeding just as seriously as kennels that serve as the breeder’s full-time job. All their puppies are registered, and they are diligent in ensuring that the puppies are placed in proper homes.

All their adult Labs have obedience titles or are in the process of getting it. As a result, Tanzy Labrador puppies are intelligent, hardworking, and versatile. Though a hobby kennel, Tanzy Labradors is approved by the Pawcatuck River Labrador Retriever Club.
