Reilly and Murphy at the Oregon Coast in 2006. They were my first two Labradors and ReiMur was named in their honor.
I am a small hobby breeder located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest city of Seattle, WA. I am dedicated to the All Around Labrador, and actively show, work, and health test my dogs to ensure I am producing Labradors that exude breed type, have natural desire to do the job for which they were intended, and make healthy, happy companions. My dogs are all beloved family members who live in the house, and I breed only when I am ready for my next generation.
I fell in love with this breed in late 2000 when I brought home my first Labrador, Reilly (Black Rock Life of Reilly CDX RN JH CGC WC CC Can CD). We became active in obedience competition, which introduced me to dog shows. I soon decided I would like a companion for Reilly and that I would like to show my next Labrador in conformation; this led me in late 2001 to Barb and Don Ironside of Fawnhaven Labradors, who not only gave me my beloved Murphy (Can CH SHR Fawnhaven Mischief Maker Delphi CD RN SH CGC WC Can CD/JH/WC) as a puppy in 2002, but became my mentors in the breed. They introduced me to our local breed club, PSLRA, as well as field work and the world of conformation shows. I later became involved in Agility. When it came time to breed my first litter (born in early 2007), they generously offered to co-own Magic, a beautiful bitch line-bred on CH Monarch's Black Arrogance, with me for a litter. As they say, the rest is history.
ReiMur is proud to produce dogs that are versatile enough to successfully compete in multiple venues and have the temperaments that make wonderful family members. From our first two litters in 2007 and 2011, we produced the following titled dogs:

I have been an active member of the Puget Sound Labrador Retriever Association since 2001 and served on the Board from 2004 - 2008 (Treasurer 2005 - 2007; Member of the Year 2005). I am also a member of the LRC, Inc. and am a licensed AKC hunt test judge and enjoy watching dogs turn on their natural instincts.
