From our beginnings in Norfolk England in 1969, we have always been about Labradors who were true to type and breed characteristics.
In our very first litter born in England ENG CH Ballyduff Hollybranch of Keithray ‘Ben’ x Shenandoah Jet Lady ‘Dusty’ we produced our first AKC Champion Shenandoah Spritely Diana Proud to bring the beautiful Ballyduff heritage to the USA we continued with Ben x Dusty granddaughters, AKC CH Shenandoah Ebon Echo ‘ Tuppence’ AKC CH Shenadoah Sea Sprite AKC CH Ballyduff Barnes of Shenandoah, imported, who finished as WD LRC Potomac 1979
Our latest AKC CH was born in 2004 and co-bred with Jeannette & Jim Scott, AKC CH Twinholly’s Yellow Submarine ‘ Cooper’
We’ve also produced obedience titled dogs, among them Shenandoah Dinar Tite, CD, CDX Shenandoah Larkspur CD Shenandoah Maid Marion CD.
Generations of Shenandoah Labradors have hunted with Andy and his brothers & nephews in Virginia.
We had some fun in UKC producing 40 titles in 8 generations of Show Champions and Grand Show Champions
Our legacy rests today with our 175 + Labradors of Shenandoah Service Dogs and Service Dog Sires and Dams still producing and changing people’s lives in the positive way that only a Labrador can. Visit our Service Dog page.

JOIN US IN CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF QUALITY LABRADORS in 2019 !
In a world where few remain in pure-bred dogs for more than 5 years, we are immensely grateful for the 50 years we have shared our lives with Labradors AND all the friends brought into our lives by dogs.
Having Labradors is a way of life to which we are dedicated. And to each other. Our dogs brought us together.
We remember with great fondness & humility our mentor, Bridget Docking of Ballyduff.
We are more than grateful for the inspiration and dedication of the late Doreen Anderson & her vision of the ideal Labrador
