Tinsletown Labradors 

I have been breeding Labrador Retrievers since 2008; I am situated by the beach in beautiful Torquay, Victoria.

As a Dogs Victoria registered breeder & a lifelong lover of Labradors, I strive for well-rounded sound dogs, who have the potential to become excellent show dogs, breeders, service dogs, companion dogs and loyal pets.

My Labs live a happy healthy life with me in my home by the ocean, it is a very loving environment and I consider them as part of my family. All my puppies are brought into this world with the maximum amount of love and care that I can give them.

All my Labradors are screened and tested before breeding and all bloodlines are researched and selected for optimal success in the quest to always strive to improve on the Labrador Retriever breed standard.

We are a small family kennel based at Macarthur in southwest Victoria. We brought our first Labrador in 1977 who happened to be a pedigree puppy and were instantly hooked and bred our first litter in 1978. We initially started using our dogs very much as gundogs (until early 2000s) as my husband and sons were keen shooters and then began to dabble with showing. Our dogs have also been used in the Seeing Eye Dogs breeding program and Dogs for Disability.
Our dogs have always been a huge part of our family, and share time in the house with us and the "house pets" who live inside. We couldn't imagine life without our beautiful dogs hogging the couch and our beds and having fun at the beach or local rivers where we fish.
We pride ourselves in producing sound puppies with exceptional temperaments and put a large amount of time into rearing our puppies to ensure the puppies have been socialised for a good start in their life. Our grandchildren are constant visitors and as such demonstrate the fabulous temperaments our dogs have. Getting in the front door is often difficult with the four legged welcome and wagging tails!

Tamudly Labradors

I am a small family kennel based in Melbourne's outer west. My dogs are a huge part of my family and live inside with myself, partner and two kids.

We attend weekly obedience classes with Ballarat Dog Obedience Club and the occasional dog show (with the current situation, I haven't been able to attend as many as I would've liked to).

I pride myself in producing sound puppies with exceptional temperaments and put a large amount of time into rearing and socialising puppies to ensure the very best start of life. My kids play a huge role in helping with the puppies.

All my dogs are hip & elbow score, have full DNA profiles, eye clearances and dentition reports so that I have the beset confidene my puppies will grow to be healthy and sound.

Shanstar Banner.png

RPF

I purchased my first Labrador when I was 13 years old. Her name was Colmeka Candy Ann.   I called her Shandi I paid $60 with money I earned from a paper round.  I got involved with the Labrador Retriever Club and obtained my Junior Shooters license and started competing in Retrieving Trials.

Shandi obtained her Retrieving Trial Champion title at 4 years old and I was 17 and the second female to obtain this title in Victoria. My Mum Pamela Matthews and I went to the KCC office and registered the Shanstar Kennel prefix as I wanted to breed.  Over the years, I bred mainly for myself, always with health and working ability at the forefront.

Dogs I bred obtained titles in Retrieving, Agility, Obedience and ET, including RT Ch Shanstar Cassie who is in the Retrieving Hall of fame.

As life went on, I had a break from breeding and let my prefix lapse, but my Labradors have always been in my life and heart. 💗

Recently, Kenya has come into our lives and I decided to reapply for my Shanstar prefix and was successful. 🎉 🎉 🎉

In 2023, Kenya obtained titles in Retrieving, Agility and Tricks. She has passed all her health testing and this year we will hopefully be looking forward to another beautiful litter of Shanstar puppies. 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾
