We are registered breeders with the Dogs NSW (#2000869070), and past members of the Labrador Club of Qld.
Our aim has always been to breed quality puppies free from hereditary defects (our 21 year old daughter has human hip dysplasia and it it not a nice thing to go thru).
All puppies are raised in a family environment and given the best possible start to life.
Kobelco puppies are also raised using neonatal stimulation and are also desensitized to thunder and loud noises whilst with us during their first 8 weeks.
Pups are also toilet trained to synthetic grass for easy transition to crate and indoor training.
Kobelco Labradors was founded in 1993 with the purchase of Driftway Black Apollo (Saidi). Saidi was purchased as a pet to grow up with our young family. Unfortunately we lost Saidi early on in her life due to a freak accident. Before losing Saidi she produced an exceptional litter to Aust. Ch. Charmerla the Mallon (Richard), from this litter came our first homebred Australian Champion Kobelco Elizabeth. After a long wait we were then offered a pup from Southbank kennels. We obtained a lovely chocolate boy named Southbank Terracotta (Yoda). Not long after that a gorgeous girl named Charmela the Mabalis (Rosie) from the Charmela Kennels in Qld came to join us. A friend then invited me to a show, I caught "Dog People Disease" and the rest is history. We can now claim to have added to the gene pool of chocolate labradors in Australia by investing in the importation of Willowspring Obi Wan (Obi), with plans to also import more lines from the UK's top kennels.
All Kobelco puppies are Dogs NSW registered (with limited registration papers- this means the animal can not be shown in confirmation shows and no progeny can be registered from the animal).
We will sell pups with Main Registration POA, and only after we have researched your motives within the breed.
Our pups are raised with children from the minute they are born, have had vaccinations and microchipping done and come with one month of worming, and a lifetime of back up service.
Our aim is always for the betterment of the breed, this is why we only breed with selected animals once or twice, to always produce litters that improve on what we have already.
We only ever use animals that are within the breed standard in type, temperament and hip and elbow scoring. All of our breeding stock are also PRA clear by parentage.

Cost of Kobelco Puppies
We do not charge different prices for different colours.
We believe they are all as good as each other and although we
dedicate a lot to our pups before they leave our care at 8 weeks, its what effort you put in
that determines what you get from your new friend, especially in the first 4 months of their lives.
Pricing as at 1/10/17
Limited Registration- $1800
Main Registration- POA
No breeder can guarentee they are selling you a Grand Champion Pup
It is our endevour to place pups that match the
Breed Standard as close as possible in both Type and Temperament on the Main Register
and Export Puppies are POA.
