WELCOME to Aidens Labradors – breeders of superb chocolate and black Labrador puppies!
Aidens Labradors breeds beautiful chocolate and black Labrador dogs that are home-raised from fully health-tested parents. All litters undertake a thorough programme of socialisation to give them the best start in life during the crucial first weeks of development.
Our dogs have gone to homes as pets, as therapy dogs, to work to the gun and to show in the ring. We breed dogs that are fit, healthy and have an excellent temperament. Our dogs give years of pleasure and companionship whatever their eventual roles in life
Our dogs are in homes all over the country from Devon to Scotland as well as in the Swiss Alps, Argentina and America . We are very proud of them and we know that their owners are too.
Support for owners is lifelong. Aidens Labradors works in conjunction with a qualified trainer and behaviourist and appointments can be arranged for dogs that go to homes in south east England. You will be provided with full information and support whilst you are considering whether an Aidens Labrador is the right choice for you as well as during and after your purchase. We run monthly training classes and workshops in Kent and can offer private lessons, subject to location.
We also provide a home boarding service for Labradors and golden retrievers and crosses of those breeds, and will consider any other well-socialised dog. Details can be found on our Services page. We are licensed for home boarding by Thanet District Council.
We are proud to be distributers for The Natural Dog Food Company and provide a free delivery service within a fifty mile radius of Broadstairs, Kent. Where good health comes NATURALLY !!! We also now supply antler bones and quality toys and act as agents for Pets Made Personal providing a range of accessories. Please call for information and prices.
If you want to try your hand at showing, in a friendly, encouraging environment, we run monthly shows in Kent raising money for the Cinnamon Trust. Puppies can compete once they are 6 months old and may even win a golden ticket to our Championship Show and Christmas Quiz in December
WE PRIDE OURSELVES IN BREEDING ETHICALLY
We breed for health and temperament not superficial appearance.
We are deeply disturbed by the decline in longevity of Labradors that was evidenced in recent research by the UK Kennel Club and British Small Animal Veterinary Association Scientific Committee. In addition to a general decline, prevailing health problems such as hip and elbow dysplasia continue to be endemic. Responsible breeders are heath testing, DNA testing and breeding carefully in an attempt to bring the breed back to the standards of health that it enjoyed when first bred from crosses with the St John’s Water Dog in the 19thC.
Breeding a good dog, regardless of the show ring should be the aim of all good breeders but tragically, many are still mating fathers and daughters and other closely related dogs in an attempt to produce what they perceive as a champion show dog. This results in a large number of dogs worldwide being bred from a tiny number of dams and sires. The gene pool becomes very small and multiple health problems become endemic.
Aidens Labradors provide the healthiest dogs that we possibly can. Extremely careful selection of mates, thorough health testing and proper rearing during the vital early weeks has been proven to produce dogs that are sound in health and mind and fit for whatever purpose for which they are destined.

We work with and support CReDO – the Campaign for Responsible Dog Ownership.
