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.


Gene & Sherri,

We are so in love with our sweet Clara!  She has been an absolute delight to us.  Sweet tempered, fun loving and very obedient.  She has been so good since the fist day we brought her home.  She kennel trained perfectly and her kennel is her safe place at home.  She has tons of energy and is growing very fast.  We vet her at Davis Veterinary and he was the first to tell us we had made an excellent choice purchasing a puppy from your family.  We couldn’t agree more!  So much so, we would be interested in purchasing another puppy from you sometime in the coming months.  We would love to get a chocolate female to add to our little family.  Obviously, this will depend on your breeding schedule and we are more than willing to wait for the right puppy to come along.  We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully to bringing home another sweet little girl sometime in the near future.  Thank you so much!  I have included some pictures of Clara as I remember Sherri saying that you loved to see the pups as they grew up!.  We think she’s about the cutest thing ever!

Very happy puppy parents,

Travis & Stephanie
