Paul and Elaine Davey qualified as veterinary surgeons from Cambridge University in 1970. Both had had dogs in their respective families, and Paul owned a Border Terrier bitch, and Elaine a black labrador bitch as students.

The prefix 'Southridge' was granted to them by the Kennel Club in 1971, and the couple bred and showed Border Terriers in a small way in the seventies and
early eighties. Several of their Borders had considerable success in the show-ring, including the blue&tan homebred bitch 'Southridge Fancy'. Both Paul and Elaine served for many years on the committee of the Southern Border Terrier Club.

Labradors were a constant feature of home life, but they were not shown (through lack of time) The predominately small-animal practice in which they both worked, and their own family commitments took nearly all their free time.
In 1991 they purchased a black labrador bitch from Miss Anne Taylor(Fabracken), from whom most of the present kennel descends, and on selling the veterinary practice in 2003, they moved to Cornwall, and now show their labradors,achieving some good wins at Championship level.
They 'pick up' with the local shoot in winter.
They only occasionally breed litters, always insisting on using carefully selected compatible bloodlines, such as Brigburn, Charway,Abbeystead,Sandylands and Lindall in order to produce good-looking labradors which are capable of doing the work for which they were originally bred.
Naturally, as veterinary surgeons, they are particularily scrupulous about using the BVA/KC Health Schemes, for eyes, hips and elbows.
Occasionally young adults are available to suitable homes.Currently we have a young adult yellow bitch for whom we would like to find a new home
