Welcome to Riverlands Kennels

We purchased our first Labrador Retriever as a pet in 2002 in New Zealand, a black dog named Chasers Halelujah. Jack is an amazing dog and a stunning example of the breed but unfortunately we were unable to include him in our breeding program. He has such an exceptionally high drive to work that we made the very tough decision to let him go and pursue a career of his own. He now works as a narcotics detection dog in Taiwan and loves his job. Jack inspired us to begin breeding and exhibiting Labradors. We think of him often.

In 2003 we got our first bitch, Chasers Jolie Fleur. Fleur is the foundation of our kennels. She is a stunning bitch but never enjoyed the show ring. She is now retired and spends her days sleeping in the sun or keeping her children and granchildren in line!

The prefix RIVERLEA was registered in NZ in 2004.

In 2008 we moved from NZ to Australia with four labradors and a Smooth Fox Terrier. Our NZ prefix was not able to be registered in Australia so we now have the new prefix RIVERLANDS. We now live in rural Picton NSW about an hour from Sydney. We own and operate C Crates so work from home and share our lives with our dogs, our cats rescued from death row, Smokey, Bandit and Magnum and an Eclectus parrot called Charlie who is learning to talk.
