was established in 1995 with the purchase of my first black lab, Wannamaker's
Wiley Willy. He was a stocky, well-bred field trial contender, a
house pet and a real character! I trained and ran him in licensed
field trials in the US and Canada for several years. He had 14
Canadian Open Points, just needing a Win for his Canadian Field Trial
Championship and was Qualified All-age in the US.
Next I purchased three
black females, Rob Shar's Hot Salsa, her daughter Cinque's Reckless
Ambition, and Bag of Tricks. All these girls had tremendous field desire
and a willingness to please. I then purchased a small talented 3 year old
male, Homeboy's Jazz. He became the backbone of my field-bred
Labradors. In 1999, with only 2 1/2 years of training, "Homie"
become a Canadian Field Trial Champion and was a Finalist that year at the
Canadian National Open. Either the Field Title or completing the
National Open would have been an
ultimate Goal but to have both was VERY exciting and rewarding!
I had both
black and yellows bitches sired by Homie. I crossed my field bred
lab bitches with quality show Champions and Best in Show Labs, working towards a
Dual-Purpose dog, the ultimate goal for any retriever breeder. I
hope to produce Labradors with good breed quality and conformation,
clear health credentials and natural retrieving ability for hunting and
field competition. - the Dual-Purpose Labrador Retriever.
All dogs have hip and eye
evaluations and my breeding stock has been PRA tested and puppies are
guaranteed never to have this blinding eye disease. The
Labrador breed has an excellent temperament and makes a great family dog,
hunting companion and field competitor. The Labs I breed are very
active, within the breed standard, alert, and easily trained.
If you're only looking for a chunky quiet couch-potato that's not my
dogs! They do well in obedience, agility, hunt test competition or
fit right in for hunting and a family companion.
Below are pictures of some
of my dogs and puppies that have been produced by my kennel or from my
stud dogs. Thanks for your interest in my Labradors.
