We are a small Show kennel and we work our dogs too. All our dogs live in the house with us and are a major part of the family. We show at Open and Championship shows when we can and we have had some good placings, including several Best of Breed awards and a first place at a Championship show. We are proud to have qualified 2 homebred dogs for Crufts. We also compete in the BASC gamekeepers ring at Crufts.
All our dogs have had basic gundog training and 3 of our dogs have been picking up on various shoots for 6 years and counting! Our dogs have also completed several gundog training days - including water skills and shoot over days. Ebony has been awarded the KC Working Gundog certificate on game. Our older dogs have all passed the Kennel Club Good Citizen award dog scheme Bronze, Silver and Gold and the younger ones have at least passed Bronze level.
Two of our Labradors have been Pets as Therapy dogs and several of Bailey's offspring have gone to Canine Partners to be trained as Assistance dogs and another one is a trained Diabetic alert dog.
We only breed a litter when we want to keep a dog or a bitch for ourselves. We breed for type, temperament and health. All our dogs have their eyes tested yearly, hips and elbows scored and are tested for CNM, EIC, HNPK and PRA. We take great care choosing the stud dogs we use on our Bitches and they are chosen to compliment and improve on what we have. We are very careful about where our puppies go and many puppy buyers have become lifelong friends.
