We are Ted & Laurie Soloski, owners of Kentfield Kennels, a small hobbyist kennel located in the beautiful countryside of Sebastopol, California, just 1 hour north of San Francisco.
Here at Kentfield Kennels we are firmly committed to breeding the traditional Labrador Retriever that will become your best friend, a loving family member, hunting companion, service dog, or will be out there competing in one of the many events you can enjoy with your dog.
What we wish to produce is a substantial, medium sized dog with a good bone structure, strong muscles, a broad head and muzzle with wide set eyes that have a kind expression.
We want a great double coat to keep out the cold (for the hunters) and that thick otter tail that is carried straight and flat from the body. We want our females to weigh approximately 55-65 lbs, and our males to weigh around 65-80 lbs.

We strive for the Labrador Retriever that is loving, affectionate and patient. They are highly intelligent, quick to learn, lively, good-natured and love to play, especially in the water! We wish to breed into our dogs the excellent, reliable temperament that is sociable, friendly, loyal and above all else, great with children and other pets.
