About Palm & Paradise Labs

Palm and Paradise Labs is a family-owned and operated small hobby breeder serving the Tampa Bay area.

Our Mission

Jordan and I dedicate Palm and Paradise Labs to our daughters Penelope Palm and Paisley Paradise. We strive to raise our daughters to respect and love animals as I have done my entire life. My father was a K9 Officer and displayed what a dog’s relationship can do for a child. I have lived out my dream since, and my life’s work has been to better the relationship between humans and dogs. Dogs and our business have taken us to places I would have never imagined going, meeting the most amazing people/families, and experiencing a life I would have never known without a dog beside me. It is only our mission that the dogs from our breeding program can also share in your family’s memories.

We strive to maintain the Labrador Retriever’s breed standard and produce sound-tempered, charismatic, lovely pups raised in a home environment with kids. As a professional dog trainer, I admire the trainability and unique dispositions of the Labrador Retriever. Our Labs are amazing athletes that demand an active home that can provide outlets such as a game of fetch, bike rides, swimming, and activities to maintain their physical and mental needs. Obedience training for our pups is second nature. They are balanced dogs who can switch from being active companions one moment to coming inside and cuddling up as a family dog the next.

Palm and Paradise Labs’ goal is bettering the breed through genetic testing/certifications, making families safe and happy with well-tempered dogs, and giving the best life to each of our breeding dogs. Our expertise preserves Labrador’s unique trademarks that produce structurally correct dogs, stunning heads, level toplines, water-resistant coats, and thick otter tails.  Our breeding creates the most high-demand family addition that is pleasant to look at and cherishes the famously sociable Labrador Retriever nature and training biddability.

It is our pleasure to raise your future puppy alongside our family in hopes it blesses yours one day.

TruPride Labs reflects Erica Owen’s kennel name creation and dedication to the breed. I am blessed to continue her kennel name in some of our breedings.
