Please keep checking this website page for any litter updates.
Our next litter is planned for around March 2020
Please scroll down for more details
Our aim is to ultimately breed good looking, healthy Chocolate & Fox Red labradors with substance and an excellent temperament that will not only make good family pets but will also be easily trainable and of a good enough standard to use as successful working dogs or agility dogs if required.
Keeping this in mind we were lucky enough to be allowed to purchase a working bred chocolate dog puppy 'Killyrudden Complice' (aka Fig) from Polly Gibb of Killyrudden Gun Dogs, we hope that he will compliment our Working Bred Chocolate Girls, Grangemead Bea (aka Peggy) from Grangemead Labradors , Warwickshire and Autumnwillow Abelia (aka Abi) from Willow Working Dogs , Bristol (both pictured above) both were bred from the best working chocolate bloodlines within the UK.
We are pleased to say that 'Fig' has passed all his health tests and with his first bitch successfully scanned and confirmed in pup he is well on his way to proving himself as our new stud dog.
We will also still occassionally continue to use working bred stud dogs owned by other breeders, the majority hold extensive and much improved health tests, going over and above the required minimum hip and eye tests set by the Kennel Club as does our boy' Fig '
Peggy was retired from breeding in 2019 but we have retained a bitch puppy from her final litter for ourselves & we are hoping that she will become a succesful replacement for her Dam.
Here she is at 8 weeks of age with Peggy
We would like to intoduce
