Health Tests

May 2014 - Dylan now has his KC stud book number so is Crufts qualified for life.

A proven stud producing lovely pups, (we own one of his sons) - This yellow gent has the most adorable nature with excellent health results.

He is hip-scored 3/4, Elbow Score 0 and is DNA tested genetically clear / normal for

* Optigen g-PRA,
* Optigen RD/OSD

He holds a fully clear eye certificate (to November 2016)

His DNA clearances mean he can be mated to untested & tested carrier bitches and will not produce affected progeny - clear tested bitches will mean the progeny are guaranteed not to carry the genes for these conditions.

Dylan is an adorable boy with the sweetest gentle fun nature, who has captured our hearts and those of everyone he meets.

A true gent among Labradors. He is a typical retriever carrying something with him everywhere he goes.

Whilst first and foremost a much loved pet, Dylan has delighted us in the show-ring taking many first places, BOBs and RBOB, puppy group placings and first places at Championship shows.

He qualified for Crufts 2012 and 2013, and is now qualified for life after gaining his stud book number in May 2014.

A proven gentle and considerate stud producing lovely chunky pups, Dylan is available at stud to approved bitches.

We offer a comprehensive stud service that starts long before your bitch is ready for mating - please see our website for further information


Dylan's son DJ has delighted us with his early days in the show-ring with many Champ show placings, and Best Puppy in breed at open shows with 1 x Puppy Group 2 and 2 x Puppy Group 4.

More recently he's enjoyed a number of strong class wins and Best of Breeds with 2 x Gundog Group 4 and a Gp 2 all in stiff competition - we can't thank these judges enough for thinking for highly of our lovely boy.

In May 2015, DJ confirmed his Crufts 2016 place alongside dad by getting 3rd in Yearling dog under International breed specialist Mr Jan Sauge (Mambrinos) - very adeptly handled by Sarah Robinson.


We are delighted to report that Dylans Daughter Skye has enjoyed a fantastic introduction to the show-ring, achieving Best Puppy in Show at St Austell show in Feb 2014, also qualifying her for Crufts 2015.

She has also achieved several class wins with Best Puppy in Breed, a Best of Breed, Reserve Best of Breed, 2 x Puppy GP1, 2 x Puppy GP2 and a Puppy GP3

We are absolutely delighted for her breeders and owners, Viv and Nick. Skye is now over 2 and taking a break from the show-ring for maternity duties.
