Producing multi purpose Labradors with natural hunting ability and retrieving drive is what we strive for but just as importantly possessing that wonderful Labrador nature.
Our endeavor is to breed Labradors that meet the breed standard, he should be handsome, intelligent and capable of a full days work in the field.
I’m often asked the question, will puppies from our working lines make great pets, the answer is absolutely, a great temperament is essential in a good working dog!
