We adhere strictly to our Breed Club's standards and Code of Ethics, and we strive to breed the very best dogs we possibly can. We realize that although many people want a dog they can hunt with, they also need a dog they can live with. Our dogs are true family companions - they'll play with your kids, kiss you on the lips and steal your shoes - but when the gear comes out, they know it's time to get serious.
We decided from day one that we wanted to produce dogs with exceptional natural hunting ability and good looks. Dogs that have the ability to win each and every time they are entered in a Field Trial or Conformation show.
In order to accomplish these goals, we have searched for, trained and trialed beautiful bitches on which to build our foundation. We breed to sires that have proven themselves in Field Trials. There is no place in our breeding program for an "average" dog. We are serious breeders committed to the betterment of our breeds.
Our criterion include:
~Natural hunting/retrieving ability
~Sire/Dam's hips OFA certified prior to breeding
~Correct breed type
A NOTE ABOUT BREEDING RESPONSIBLY
There are a lot of people breeding dogs. As a result, there are a lot - literally MILLIONS - of unwanted dogs (and cats) in the world. Breeding our companion animals is a huge responsibility - it is a life-long commitment to the puppies that you produce, the people who purchase from you, and to the breed itself. Listed below is what we believe is the difference between a "responsible" and "irresponsible" breeder.
