Why OtterTails?
The written standards of the Labrador Retriever worldwide agree that the Labrador’s tail is one of the distinguishing characteristics of the breed. It should be thick at the base, gradually tapering, medium length, free of feathering, and clothed thickly with short, dense coat, thus giving the ‘rounded’ appearance described as the “otter” tail.

OtterTail Labrador Retrievers Past and Present
My life with Labradors began in 1985 with the purchase of my first purebred puppy. In 1986 we added a second puppy, chose the kennel name "OtterTail", and I got involved in dog shows, obedience trials and fell in love with everything Labrador. My first litter was born in 1988 and most of the Labs pictured here were bred, trained and shown by me. Most hold AKC titles. I no longer breed dogs, but continue to cherish and enjoy them. They are our family and best friends. In 1987 my dogs inspired me to start making OtterTail Lab Art and that has lead to many new advertures. My Labs are my models for painting and sculpting and fill me with creative ideas. Along the way I began rescuing Labs in need and now also volunteer as a foster home for Lab rescue. All of our dogs are well-mannered house pets - or learn to be if they are rescues. My husband and I, our Labs and cat share 10 acres with a pond in a beautiful country setting. It is a fun place to be a dog!
