Belle is a young bitch in training and is showing real potential having started picking up this season.

Owning gundogs now for 10 years, I have many at different stages of training and different ages, from retired bitches to puppies in training. I enjoy every aspect of training and rearing gundogs and find nothing more pleasurable than allowing them the use of their natural instinct to help me in my work.

I use my dogs to pick up fallen and injured birds on some very prestigous shoots around yorkshire and the dogs make a very good impression on anyone they meet. They behave well, do the job well and continue to suprise me bringing birds from places i did not know existed.

My dogs enjoy life but equally enjoy their work. They make fantastic pets but love the challenge of a job.

I got into labradors through my mother, her owning them all through her life. I intentionally bought my first labrador to breed them, and ended up with a second bitch and so on. All the girls are Hip/Elbow tested, hold current eye certificates and are PRA, CNM, EIC and SD2 tested aswell, I only use health tested sires to abide by the KC Assured Breeder Scheme.

I stand one fully health tested stud dog who is advertised here by an International FTCH and fully health tested - Hips 6 total Elbow score 0, eyes clear, PRA, CNM, EIC clear.

Full time I am a nurse working in management of elderly facilities.
