Copperkee Labradors are a small kennel made up of all 3 colours - each of them as beautiful as the next and all important members of our family.

Our breeding dogs are all hip/elbow scored and tested for PRA.
Puppies are sometimes available and all are raised in a home environment.

Having done obedience on and off for many years prior to establishing our kennel, we decided to take our hobby further and venture into showing and breeding. 

So in 2003, Copperkee Labradors was established.

In 2005 we gained our first show dog and our goals at Copperkee also changed to focus more on the chocolate Labrador lines here in Australia, and promoting the colour out and about in the show ring.

 In 2006 we added a Miniature Bull Terrier to our family where we showed her to a 12 point Best of Breed at the Brisbane Royal on her first birthday and her Australian Champion title shortly after. 

In 2009 we added two Australian Shepherds to the show team where they took out multiple age class in groups and also gained their Championship titles.

 However, our passion for the Labradors has seen us working hard on expanding our Labrador show team, and focusing more on our homebred dogs in the show ring.

 The "Copperkee" prefix was originally owned by Mrs D & Mr M Creagh, however, in late 2010 the kennel was changed into Mrs D Creagh and Miss J Creagh when Jamie-Lee reached the age of 18.

 Since then, we added a few new gundog breeds to the family -

* 2011 - a Cocker Spaniel "Ayva" who is owned by our youngest daughter Hayley

* 2016 - we welcomed a Flat Coat Retriever "Freya" to our family.

 We actively support both Open Shows and Championship shows with our dogs and since we started showing our results for both types of shows have seen us take out multiple age class in groups and age class in shows, Best in Group, Runner up Best in Group, Best in Specialty Show, Runner up Best in Show (all breeds) and multiple places in sweepstakes including a second place in Breeder/owner sweepstakes.

 At the Labrador Specialties we have taken out multiple places in classes and age class/opposite sex age classes in show. We have also taken out multiple property classes and opposite sex property classes in show.  These include Best Tail, Feet, Coat, Best Headed Dog and Bitch.

 Most of the dogs have been shown by Jamie-Lee who started out showing at the age of 12. 

Over the years we have shown several dogs to their Championship titles and also have our very first homebred GRAND CHAMPION.
