Born to Retrieve


If you already own a Labrador Retriever you are lucky enough to have one of the finest hunting companions available. If you are looking for an ever faithful, tireless, courageous and intelligent partner, then you couldn’t go past a Labrador. When your best shoes go missing, or he’s chasing the cat, just try to remember, as his name suggests, this dog was born to work. He or she lives to retrieve. A few minutes a day, training your Labrador to do the work for which he was designed could save a lot of headaches. He wants to chase and fetch to PLEASE you.

If you are interested in getting involved with the Retrieving discipline with your Labrador it will mean a commitment by yourself to put the training into you Labrador. There a a few Clubs that you can become involved in for the satisfaction and frustration of retrieving . If you reside within the South East of Queensland we maybe able to assist you in finding the right people to speak to. Please contact us.

About us


We are dedicated to our motto, integrity….style….purpose. The end result is producing top-quality Labrador Retrievers, with excellent temperaments that are good, sound examples of the breed. Whether for Showing, Obedience, Retrieving or a much loved family pet, Kopafield Labradors are raised in a social home environment and all have the ability to achieve some or ALL of the above pastimes.

All our litters are carefully planned from our experience of some 30 years of being involved with the breed and careful consideration of the bloodlines. The combination of both gives us the consistency of sound, beautiful Labrador Retrievers.

All breeding stock is Hip and Elbow scored and only stock that meets our own guidelines is ever used at stud or to breed from. All puppies are preliminary vaccinated and up-to-date with intestinal worming. During the first 8 weeks they are twice Vet checked and micro-chipped prior to leaving our home for your at 8 weeks of age.

All our puppies are sold by reservation. If you are interested in finding out more information please complete the Puppy inquiry questionnaire.

We also offer stud services to approved bitches.

For the past few years Sue has being involved in the Labrador Retriever Re-Home and Rescue Service and has been co coordinator with Di. Both Di and Sue are kept busy (unfortunately) re-homing Labs that need a ‘second’ chance. If you are interested in offering a new home to an older dog please email either Sue or Di using the following email: labsforus@bigpond.com
