Boarding kennel, labrador retriever breeder, dog training and pet portraits

We purchased our first labrador in 1988. When our pup was six months old, a friend invited us as spectators at a Retriever Field Trial. We were amazed at the capabilities of the dogs and also that most of the competitors were hobbyists and not professional dog trainers. We thought we would really enjoy the sport and soon we were hooked.

We soon acquired two more dogs and also decided to become a breeding kennel. Our number of breeding dogs increased as our breeding program developed. Ross became an avid trainer, honing his skills through experience, literature, seminars and working with more advanced trainers.

When Hunt Tests were introduced, Ross quickly became a keen competitor. He felt that he should also contribute to the sport by qualifying and volunteering as a judge at many hunt tests and still does so every year. In 1995, we also began hosting an annual hunt test.

By 1996, when Ross retired from the military we decided to expand our kennel business to include boarding services. We implemented the same daily routine of exercise and socialisation that we follow for our own dogs to keep them fit, healthy and happy in order to meet the demands of their training regime.

When Laurel retired from the military in 2003, she was able to take more time to do research and to attend seminars in order to breed more intelligent, more trainable, stronger and healthier retrievers.  Our breeding, puppy rearing and puppy training has become one of the most extensive programs you will find.

Laurel has always enjoyed painting and with retirement was able to pursue her art more avidly. Although primarily self-taught, she has taken several courses, during which she feels that one instructor gave her what she considers her most valuable piece of advice; Paint Your Passion. So naturally her art reflects her love of dogs.

We continue to learn, to increase our knowledge and improve our methods. We believe that our responsibility as breeders does not end when we hand you your new puppy; we continue to provide you assistance and advice. We strive to provide the best care for boarding dogs and the best program for training dogs. We have, and respect, the deep bond between people and their dogs and it is reflected in every aspect of service and support that we provide at Culandubh Kennels.
