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.

Mya is a bundle of joy to us. She has an incredible temperament that others comment on so often. She can walk off the leash already and stay a few feet from us as we walk, even with mild distractions. She has learned to “leave it” (treats, food, and other), “take it”, sit, lay down, give a highfive, jump up, wait patiently for her food, and is beginning to get stay and come. She has a love affair with plastic water bottles (she is running around with one right now, lol, it is quite funny to watch). She is very sweet to all sorts of dogs, kids, and adults. We have had people constantly comment on how beautiful she is and how well-behaved she is. We love to show her off. I hope it is ok, but we also brag about you guys to everyone that asks about her.
We went home two weeks ago for spring break to Iowa. My in-laws absolutely loved her and wore her out a ton! The attached picture is one of our favorites of her with us. I hope you enjoy it. We will send you more pictures… she has grown a lot in two weeks.
During our first vet visit, our vet was very impressed with your paperwork and quality of dog you produced. It is not just the owners that are impressed; it is the neighbors, extended family, and vets that are.
I can’t tell you how many laughs and snuggle times we have had with her. We are so thankful for her and can’t imagine life without her!
