We purchased our first Labrador in 1992. The puppy we took home was to be a companion for us and our two children. Mocha (Rucon’s Fireshadow Mocha CD. TT) drew us into the world of dog shows, hunting and breeding. Because of her we bought a new station wagon, I got my hunting licence, we joined 2 all-breed dog clubs and 3 Labrador Retriever Clubs, volunteered as gunners for the hunting WC tests and show our dogs at Championship Conformation Shows and Obedience Trials and trialing 3 of our dogs to their Companion Dog (CD) titles. Talk about influencing your life. We are proud members of CKC, LOC and EOLBA.
Samadam comes from our daughter Sam and our son Adam. I wanted to try to drag them into Labradors and it worked a little.
Adam has Crixus (BISS AM GCH / CAN CH HIGHCALIBER LABRADALE EXPRESSO and our girl SAMADAM’S JADZIA MOCHAFROST) who is a wonderful companion to Adam, Myra and their son Xander. Crixus is Xander’s best Bud…the two are always together when he is home. That brown thing is his shadow and Crixus totally adores Xander.
Sam is planning on bringing to their new home Olivia (from MASONRIDGE SAMADAM IMAGIN THAT/SEBASTIAN AND SAMADAM’S HEARTS ON FIRE/ELVIRA) she is busy following Henry around – she quickly found out that a 1 1/2 boy can be her source for food of any kind, shape or description.
We want our dogs to be multi-purpose. Our concern is to maintain the loveable, willing-to-please, out-going nature combined with the beauty and conformation of the Labrador according to our Canadian show standard. The fact that they retain their drive to hunt and retrieve as well as be able to bring home show and obedience titles all adds the icing to the cake. Our breeding dogs must pass their DNA genetic tested – as these tests become available and proven (EIC,CNM,PRA, NYPK, Cmyopa and dilute), with regular annual eye tests and hip/elbow certified.
We offer boarding services to our clients or other happy breeds that love to go for easy country walks. We are near Napanee, Kingston, & Belleville but have clients from Ottawa and Toronto, out west and along the eastern coast of our beautiful country who trust us with their beloved 4 footed family members. Contact us for spaces available and day/week prices.
All of our dogs are professionally trained for obedience or conformation events as well as gently instilling manners in family pets. Our lines come from show and obedience working dogs with strong hunting/retrieving instincts. We find that while they still remain active and virtually unlimited energy they are sane and love to learn whatever makes their owners happy. They have the quality lineage that enable them to make excellent easy to train companion dogs fit for any caring family. We also have dogs that are service and therapy dog lineage. All are talented and train to whatever you may delve into.
