Welcome to Devinelea Labradors




Devinelea's objective is to breed Labrador Retrievers who are both sound with great temperaments that are capable of undertaking any task set them, be it showing, retrieving, obedience or as a muched loved family companions. 

Labradors are very affectionate and fit in well to family life, be it  playing with the kids or having a much enjoyed cuddle on the couch with the adults. They are easily trained and are eager to please.

We have had dogs as part of our family for the last 54+ years, Ben's love of Labradors started when he was a kid, the family had a Black Lab named "Roy". Over the years we have had Basenjis, Great Danes, Saint Bernards, Cattle Dogs, German Shepherds, Kelpie,  Fox Terrier and a Alaskan Malamute. The last 20+ years we have had the pleasure of having Labrador Retrievers. Our dogs are part of the family and live a happy and idyllic life on a rural property in Western Victoria about 2½ hours from Melbourne.

Our current Labs are :- 
"ARTIE" Australian Champion & Australian Neuter Champion Jollab Winchester (AI). 
"MAGGIE" Australian Champion Jollab Perazzi (AI). 
"ZIVA" Australian Champion Devinelea Flanders Fields.
"GIBBS" Devinelea Anzac Cove.
"ELLIE" Devinelea Jive Talking.
Our current show team "GIBBS" , "ELLIE"  and  "ARTIE", something which we enjoy.
We said "goodbye" to our old Labs "SAILOR" at 13.5, and our darling "YODA" at 11.5 years, we miss them dearly.
