Breeding & Puppies

Our breeding program is based upon Labrador Retrievers seen primarily as Working Gundogs.

Our aim is to breed retrievers with natural abilities, essential for a good and valued hunting dog. These abilities are for example obedience, trainable, game finding skills and willingness.

We exclusively breed out of dogs who have been proven in the field, at (inter) national competitions and at shooting days. They have had the minimum required health checks for hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, hereditary eye conditions and Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA). Significant importance is to breed from dogs who haven’t shown any signs of hereditary eliminating faults. The rules and guidelines we adhere to are from the FCI and the National Rules for breeding and welfare of Labrador Retrievers.

Nest planning (feb) 2020

Lesser Burdock Drakeslady of Rebel Blend (Jamie) has been mated by FTCH Troddenmills Full Throttle or Leacaz (Todd).

Todd is a beautiful yellow FTCH dog (02-06-2016) and is a half brother of FTCH Troddenmills Beck And Call Of Leacaz (Flint).

In 2017 Lee Hartis achieved with Todd various novice field trial qualifications. In 2018, his first season in the open class, he was awarded several times. In October 2019, Todd did exceptionally well at the “Yorkshire Gundog Societies Two Day stake”, and won this field trial as this qualifies Todd for his first IGL Championship.

After Lee managed to make his young dog field trial champion on the ‘NGO Two Day trial at Emblehope & Burngrange Estate’, Todd once again did fantastic at the Retriever Championships 2019 in Glenalmond, Perthshire and received a ‘Diploma Of Merit’.

This combination will produce black and yellow puppies.
