Welcome to Beloved Labs....Providing Soulmates of the Labrador Kind.
We are Kris and Kevin Olson, we are located in Northern Mn., just a few minutes from the beautiful Lake of the Woods. We are a stones throw away from Canada....Manitoba and Ontario. We encourage you to come meet us and visit our dogs and our kennel...the best part of owning and running a reputable breeding program is the wonderful people we meet and the friends we make! We keep a small kennel that is devoted to breeding Labrador Retrievers from both English and American lines with the majority of our labs being from English lines with heavy English attributes. We are licensed through the Minnesota Board of Animal Health. There are only 3 colors of labradors,Yellow, chocolate and Black. We mainly breed Yellow Labs that range in shades from virtually white to fox red. The English Lab have dispositions have charming and calm dispositions but make no mistake, they also have top of the line drive in the field. Our finest hunting dog is an English lab. . The first priority in our Labrador breeding program is the health and temperment of our Labs. Improving the bloodlines in our Labradors is very important to us, but we know, whether you own a English Lab or an American Lab, if your Lab puppy isn’t healthy his pedigree means nothing. Our labs are individuals and as such they display a character and personality all their own; however that being said we breed them with low key temperments and obedience in mind. Our labs are bred for companion dogs, personal gundogs, and good looking Labrador Retrievers with competitive potential, and we will never breed a dog that doesn't meet our standard of excellence. Both our American and English labs are genetically sound, you can see in our English Labs that our lines carry the heavy bone structure, blocky heads and beautiful coats. Overall, both the English Labrador and the American Labrador lines are capable of providing you with the pet or hunting companion you've always wanted. Obviously, both English and American Labs are more predisposed to certain characteristics, but with that being said, they are also both very well rounded dogs...at the end of the day, a Labrador is a Labrador and no other breed has a disposition as agreeable, gentle and pleasant.

Labrador Kennel in Northern Minnesota
Sparky, Tucker and Hudson
We find great value in being a small Labrador kennel in Northern Minnesota because it allows our Labs to behave like dogs. We believe even AKC Labs with champion bloodlines and superb health and temperaments should have the opportunity to run, swim, retrieve and be loved. Our Labradors are way more than "breeding dogs",in fact that's a very small part of their life, they are our family and we treat them that way. They spend as little time as possible in our kennel building, they are outside in the yard most of the time, or down at the pond...they never leave our premises because they have no reason to...this is their home and they love us as much as we love them. Socializing our puppies come quite easy to us here at Beloved Labs, being that we have been blessed with a brood of grandchildren, mainly little blue ones and now two new pinks ones...adding some gentleness to the rough housing! Remaining a small kennel awards our Labs the opportunity to run freely in our large yard and fields, to swim in the ponds, to ride along in the Ranger, and to play with one another. We hope as you visit our website you will get a feeling for who we are, sensing our true nature and our honesty. We want to make sure both our adult labs and our lab puppies have the kind of love only a Labrador owner can give, that's why it's important to us to only have as many Labs as we can properly care for ourselves.

As Breeders of the Labrador retriever here in Northern Mn., we pride ourselves in continuing to learn more about the Labrador breed on an almost daily basis. We take an honest pride in our Labrador adults as well as our Lab puppies and we put as much love into the puppies we sell as we do the pups we keep as lifelong pets. We feel that the socialization Lab puppies receive during their first 12 weeks has just as much of an impact on the puppy's temperament as genetics. For this reason, all our puppies receive hands on attention and love from day one. Our Lab puppies receive all the affection they need to be happy and well-adjusted when we send them home with their new family.
