A GOOD DOG IS A PLEASURE TO BE WITH AND PLEASING TO LOOK AT
The health, welfare and quality of life of our furry friends will always be first and foremost.
We aim to breed Labradors that have:
EXCELLENT TEMPERAMENTS – so that they are a joy to be with and make fantastic family pets & companions.
The quality and conformation – true to type & pleasing to look at. Although they are not bred purely for showing, they are still able to show. Our own home bred Wilarklodge Foxy Lady won the Best Labrador Bitch (GK) class at Crufts in 2008. She also does fun dog shows with our children, which makes a great family day out.
Fit strong healthy puppies - they will have been carefully & lovingly reared with the utmost of care.
They will have been fed, exercised & socialised with great care & consideration paid to the needs of a growing young puppy. With your continued correct care hopefully puppy should grow into a healthy young dog and be able to stand up to the demands that a hard day’s play/work will bring. If this is your first puppy we will be more than happy to give you ongoing support and advice.
Quality proven bloodlines – we carefully select our dogs to suit our bitches. We aim to use dogs & bitches that have a proven pedigree. Nearly all our pedigrees will include dogs & bitches that have competed & won up to and including International level, be it showing or working. In showing, amongst many other qualities, the judge will also be looking for; correct conformation, movement, excellent temperament and good manners.
For work & field trials – again they must have the correct conformation, excellent stamina and fitness, excellent temperament, obedience, trainability, soft mouth, good nose, and more. These will all be tested to the highest level by judges that have years of experience and are experts in what they judge.
Health tested parents – we aim to breed only from parents that have low hip scores, low elbow score (where tested). Here is a link http://www.wikihow.com/Prevent-Hip-Dysplasia-in-Dogs
Current Clear eye test, and dogs that are DNA tested clear from PRA & CNM (where tested).
Trainable temperament – we aim to breed dogs that are easy to train, be it for working out on a shoot, a family pet, or if you want to have fun at obedience and agility. Our puppies have also gone to be trained as “care dogs.”
Equally suited & happy – to be in your home sleeping by your feet & keeping you company, or out on the shooting field doing a day’s work.
All our Labradors are all raised correctly, with unlimited love and care.
