                               About Us...  


Our first Labrador Retriever was a Benn x Murphy son named after his granddad, CH Tabaha's Drifter at Dickendall.  Our Drifter was the reason we fell in love with the Labrador breed.  He was  truly a man's best friend and will be forever in our hearts.

The name "Dockside" is from my first show dog, "Doc", who was named after my late father's nickname.  Doc won many blue ribbons and helped us learn about obedience and the world of dog shows.  We made many friends in the process and developed an interest in preserving the English type Labrador Retriever.

As a hobby, we may breed one litter per year.  We breed to the standard as defined by the American Kennel Club and breed only dogs with appropriate health clearances.  Puppies are born in our home and are well socialized and loved.  Our puppies are sold on limited registration and make wonderful hunting companions, family pets and therapy dogs.


English type Retrievers in all three colors: black, yellow and chocolate. 

Dedicated to preserving the temperament, intelligence and  health of the breed. 


Summer is a registered pet therapy dog with Therapy Dogs International (TDI)

She has visited nursing homes and is especially sweet and gentle with children.  We have 4 generations down from Summer in our breeding program.


Time for a little obedience!
