Arkansas River Valley Kennels

We are a small hobby breeder located in the beautiful Arkansas River Valley 40 miles northwest of Little Rock.  We specialize in the beautiful and rare dilute silver, charcoal and dilute factored labrador retrievers.


Arkansas River Valley Kennel labs are AKC registered, vet checked, with excellent bloodlines. From Maine to Texas, we searched the US for the labs we wanted to begin our hobby with. Our Labrador Retrievers are a very loyal breed and make excellent companions, hunters, and watch dogs. We view our labs as part of the family. When they are not in our home or yard, they reside in a climate controlled kennel with freedom to roam in a fenced yard. 


We would like to thank the owners and breeders we adopted our canine family from, who have all been such a huge help, a wealth of information, and support.

We would also like to thank you for taking a look at our site and please note this site is still a work in progress.

Psalms 2


1 Why do the nations rage
    and the peoples plot in vain?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves,
    and the rulers take counsel together,
    against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying,
3 “Let us burst their bonds apart
    and cast away their cords from us.”
4 He who sits in the heavens laughs;
    the Lord holds them in derision.
5 Then he will speak to them in his wrath,
    and terrify them in his fury, saying,
6 “As for me, I have set my King
    on Zion, my holy hill.”
7 I will tell of the decree:
  The Lord said to me, “You are my Son;
    today I have begotten you.
8  Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,
    and the ends of the earth your possession.
9 You shall break them with a rod of iron
    and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.”
10 Now therefore, O kings, be wise;
    be warned, O rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear,
    and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son,
    lest he be angry, and you perish in the way,
    for his wrath is quickly kindled.
    Blessed are all who take refuge in him
