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 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.

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. Ps. 1:1,2

For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot.  Romans 8:7

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight!  Isaiah 5:20-21

Hate evil, and love good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be the Lord the God of hosts may have mercy on the remnant of Joseph.
Amos 5:15
