Twin Oak Retrievers

See our puppies!

As Lab Breeders, our goals at Twin Oak Retrievers Kennels are two fold:

First, for the hunter or trialer (Hunt Test or Field Trial) to breed to studs with the best hunting ability available to produce dogs which will excel when trained.

Second, for the discriminating pet owner to produce pups with brains, good looks and a pedigree with no known health defects such as hip dysplasia.

We have been breeding Labs since 1984 and have acquired an excellent set of brood bitches with impressive field test pedigrees and have continued to refine our breedings to produce superior puppies that are good looking, intelligent labs with a good attitude for learning starting from birth. We recommend that all prospective puppy owners read a book such as "The Art of Raising a Puppy" by the Monks of New Skete before purchasing a pup. Raising a puppy takes a lot of love, time and work. The rewards can be great!! Our repeat customers will attest to our quality lab puppies. If you have any questions about our labs or need help in finding the best lab for you and your family, please call or TwinOakRetrievers1@aol.com email us.


After 34 years of breeding dogs and raising puppies, Nancy and I have decided to retire and do some traveling. We were blessed with great breeding stock and good health during that time. We can say in all sincerity, that we did our best to improve the breed. I can tell you that while it is tremendously taxing and physically challenging, there is a wonderful thrill bringing new life into this world. We have had a great time raising puppies in our home and have met a lot of truly great people during this adventure.

God introduced us to a young couple that have the same love of Labradors that we do and wanted to take over the business. Effective July 31, 2018 Danny and Rachel Truitt will be the new owners of the domain www.peachesandpups.com

They can be reached at Twin Oak Retrievers,

While we are stepping down, we will be consulting and advising them for the next several years. The transition will be seamless and you can expect the same high quality labs from them as you got from us.

Thanks for all your support and friendship over the years.

Levin and Nancy Van Sant

Bonez is from our Poppi & Otto litter born 9/22/17. The owners are repeat clients that live in California; Bonez is their third pup from us. They love him dearly.

To all my clients and future clients we at Twin Oak Retrievers switched our dog food from another brand we used for over 20 years because the food quality became terrible. We have switched all of our dogs to BEAVER DAM PET FOOD as of April 2010 and have been extremely satisfied with the results. We recommend that puppies are fed the BEAVER DAM PUPPY/ADULT FOOD. We feed our older dogs the BEAVER DAM ELI'S SELECT GRAIN FREE. Clients may want to stay with the grain free or switch to the Beaver Dam Puppy/Adult food.
For more information on BEAVER DAM PET FOOD, go to their web site or call Truman Schrock (owner) at his office 302-349-5299.

"... we were just rated by the Dog Food Advisor, a national organization that rates dog food. Our Eli's Select got 5 Stars, and Beaverdam got an overall 4 Star Rating. We are very excited about this, and it should really help us with promoting." - Charlie, Beaver Dam Pet Food, 9/24/2012.
