Breeders of:

  • Golden Retriever
  • St Bernard

We are a very small kennel consisting of Golden retrievers and 1 St Bernard. My grandparents first started owning and showing St Bernards about 50 years ago and had lots of success winning best of breed at crufts and owning top winning dogs for a number of years. My mother then took over the showing for a number of years and also had lots of winners. The 'Whaplode' prefix can still be found in many top winning ST Bernards pedigree's today.
The kennel now consists mainly for the purpose of working Golden retrievers on shoots. This again was started by my grandfather and has been carried on by firstly my father and now me. We still use the Whaplode prefix.
Our dogs are firstly our family pets and we find that Golden retrievers do the job of being part of our family and being able to work in the field better than any other breed.
