The home of show champions and top winning Labradors, English Springer Spaniels, Irish Setters and a Weimaraner.

Labrador Retrievers - It was in 1976 that a Labrador first entered the Allen household; it was time for a dog to be part of our family, and with having a young son, reliable temperament was the number one priority in deciding which breed. A Labrador fitted the bill exactly. A litter was found by Landyke Laird x Weston Honey (a Grand Daughter of Ch Reanacre Twister), so Heidi joined our family.

By 1980 we decided to look for another Labrador. After making numerous telephone calls and viewing several litters, we tracked down a litter by SH CH Stajantors Honest John x Stajantors Pearl. From this litter we choose a very proud puppy who, at eight weeks of age screamed 'look at me'. The very proud dog turned out to be Sh Ch Squire Harvey of Allenie, a winner of 6 CC's, 1 RCC, a Group Winner and undoubtedly the greatest accolade was winning Best of Breed At Crufts in 1985 and reaching the final eight in the group.

There have been many other consistent CC, RCC and Championship Show winners since then which we have campaigned as a family. These include

Sh Ch Allenies Maverick JW ShCM 14CC's 16RCC's G1, G2, G4 and DCC CRUFTS 2011
Sh Ch Allenies Ophelia 3CC's 4RCC's
Sh Ch, Am and Can Ch Salty Dog or Tampa Bay 23CC's and BOB CRUFTS 2012
Sh Ch, Am and Can Ch Salty's Surfer Girl of Tampa Bay 6CC'a and 3 RCC's (inc RCC CRUFTS 2015)

Most recently we have been campaigning Sh Ch & Am Ch Tampa Bay and Snobo Gusty Seas Batten Down the Hatch, who has now won 3CC's and 5RCC's.

English Springer Spaniels -
Our first entered the kennel in 1985 as Anthony’s dog. Other followed but there was then a break of 10 years. It was not until 2006 when we decided to have another springer, and what a star Eric has been.

Irish Setters
Anthony’s partner Richard Bott joined the team in 2005. Richard also co-owns the Quensha affix with Angela Morgan and between they have produced 11 champions in English Setters, Irish Setters. Our top winners include

Sh Ch Ember Red Hot Chilipepper of Quensha 3CC's and 6RCC's
Sh Ch Bardonhill Please Don't Tease Quensha 6CC's and 5RCC's

We have never had a large kennel and we are proud that most of the dog mentioned here are champions or have been awarded CC’s or RCC’s.

We strive to produce dogs of a type that have good temperaments and we find pleasing to the eye and are comfortable with the type we have developed. We are of course always looking to the future and the next generation.
