About Us

We are dedicated breeders of the Labrador Retriever, passionate about the breed & their many wonderful qualities.
Our desire is to bring the love of a Labrador to homes & families across the nation, so others may experience the love & loyalty that this breed has to offer.

For us, this started in June 2005, with a chocolate Labrador puppy named Cocoa. Alisha surprised Steve with Cocoa as a housewarming/birthday gift on the day that he moved into his first house. From there, our love for the breed grew, as did our number of Labs. 🙂

We married in 2009 & expanded our kennel when we moved into our new house together. When we began keeping puppies from our own Labs, it deepened our love for them even more, & solidified in our minds that this is what we are passionate about & this is what we wanted to do with our lives.

Isabelle was born in 2012, & has been fascinated with & immediately in love with our Labs. She’s grown up with them, & they with her. This has given her a special bond with them, & with our puppies. Her role is very important here at Michigan Elite Labradors! Bohden was born in 2017 and we’re so blessed that he gets to grow up with this wonderful breed by his side as well.

We are now in our 7th generation, & our love for our Labs only continues to grow. With each litter that is born here, there is new excitement & stronger dedication for our puppies & to the families who welcome them into their homes.
