Who We Are

Because we realize that by breeding Labs we are automatically in the business of adding “family members,” we also know that it’s important for you to know just who it really is that you are purchasing your special addition from.

Long Lane Labradors is the fruition of our family’s long term dream. Along with our sons (5 of them all together) we have enjoyed and loved Labs ever since our first, “Max,” who was our family pet for over 15 years. During that time, we came to realize the joy and satisfaction that raising these beautiful creatures could bring, not only for ourselves, but also those who would eventually take our puppies home.

About Us:   By professional trade, I am an engineer, and the Vice President of a coil spring company in Kewanna, Indiana. My wife, Sherri, is devoted to our children’s education, and we have made the decision to have them home-schooled. Our sons have completed our lives and we are so thankful for them daily. Our oldest sons, Eric and Kirk, are now out of the house and married. We are very happy to have added female companions for Sherri to our family! As I mentioned before, this dream came from a true love of Labradors. This coupled with the educational value of proper business ethics, modeled to our 5 sons, became pivotal in our decision to begin breeding Labs. My wife and I both felt that this outlet would be a great way for our sons to learn responsibility, through hands-on experience with the day-to- day routine of caring for our Labs.

We welcome your questions, and we look forward to meeting each of you! Thanks for taking the time to view our site. We are here to help you make the best decision possible regarding the purchase of a Labrador of your own. We look forward to hearing from you today!

The gentle, intelligent, and family friendly Labrador Retriever continues to be the most popular dog breed in the United States according to the AKC registration statistics. This versatile breed comes in three colors-yellow, black, and chocolate-and because of their desire to please their master they make great family pets as well as guide dogs for the blind and part of search-and- rescue teams.

The Labrador Retriever, despite his name, didn’t come from Labrador, but from New Foundland. The breed originated in the 1700’s. New Foundland was populated with small water dogs, who, when bred with New Foundland dog breed, produced a breed referred to as the St. John’s Water Dog, a prototype for what we know as the Lab of today.

Hi Sherri! I am so sorry it has taken this long to send you an update on Bella.  She is the daughter of Axel and Frisco.  She was born in November of 2010.  She has lived in Florida since shortly after Christmas of 2010. She is an amazing dog and we adore her!  She is beautiful and we are not being baised.  Our friends and family still take their own pictures of Bella and have since she was a puppy because they cannot get over how beautiful she is.  The vet could not get over what a remarkable lab she is.  From her first visit he commented on how she must have come from out of state because of her high standard of breeding…and he is a lab owner himself. We recommend Long Lane Labradors frequently…Bella is great advertising for you! She is also incredibly smart.  She was fully house broken by 10 weeks old, only having a handful of accidents during her training period.  She started walking to the mailbox with her ‘Dad’ at 7 weeks old.  He gave her a piece of mail which she carried all the way back to the house.  She has done this everyday since.  She knows her toys by name.  She is incredibly friendly with children and other animals.  She seems actually shocked when other animals are anything other than friendly. She could not be more loved or more lovable. Thank you for our beautiful girl! -Maria and Dean
