Who We Are

A Small Town Family of Lab-Lovers

We are a family of soon-to-be empty nesters, living on a family-owned and operated ranch in Hood County, TX. We’ve been breeding our family labs for 15 years to bring the same love and enjoyment we get from our furr-babies to you and your family.

Meet our Adult Dogs

Our dogs aren't just our business, they're our family. We started with just one Labrador Retriever, good ole Duke, and over the years we've added several more to our family.

Got my pup 7 months ago from A Strait [Contrary Creek] Labs, the best pup I have ever had. Highly recommend this breeder.

Bud is from Bristol and Buck's 12/20/21 litter. He's almost 90 lbs at 8 mos. Smart, loving, and loves to go fishing with us on our bay boat on the Laguna Madre in South Texas! He was a gift from my beautiful granddaughter. Thanks Maemie and A Strait [Contrary Creek] Labs.
