Welcome to Dove Hill Labradors

Dove Hill Labradors

English Labrador Breeders Since 1983

Situated on a 12 acre historic estate 1 hour South of Washington DC in Culpeper, Va.  Surrounded by pastures, ponds and off the main roads..we maintain approximately 15 labs here.  We are ethical serious breeders with an eye for what is best for our dogs and for you..their future homes.  We wish success for them and you!

NOT a Puppy Mill

Our dogs and puppies are known for their extraordinary temperaments.  We have selected for temperament for many years and it shows in our dogs. They are accomplished therapy dogs, service dogs, explosive canines, hunting partners, kind and loyal family companions.  We breed about 4-6 litters per year. Consequently, a waiting list is generally the norm.

We are NOT like everyone else!

We are stewards of the breed...Not just breeders. We purposefully do not list or show pictures of all our dogs.  They are not used cars.  We would be happy to send numerous photos and detailed information regarding Moms, Dads and puppies.  We want to interact with YOU!
