Me and three chocolate labrador puppies

I was born and raised in Kenya, and Marsabit is a small volcanic forested mountain in the middle of the desert in northern Kenya. In the centre of the volcano is Lake Paradise. Marsabit was the home to largest and famous Elephant – Ahmed. (See Marsabit National Park guide)


As a child we always had Golden Labradors as my father was a keen hunter. The hunters were given permission to shoot wild birds in the areas where they had wheat and rice plantations and these Franklin partridges would otherwise eat all the rice and wheat harvest.
We had an exceptionally intelligent Labrador male whose father was imported from UK from the Sandringham (Queen Of UK Labrador kennels) line of working dogs. He learnt exceptionally quickly, and not only was he a magnificent gundog, he also competed in Obedience up to Test B, Companion Dog trials, and Gundog open Working trials and Completed Schutzhund 1 with excellent results.


My father was a Labrador judge for confirmation and working tests, obedience and gundog trials.
Our first chocolate Labrador was Coco whose father was a Show Champion Toby. She lived a long and healthy life and died when she was 15 years old. As the chocolate lines in South Africa were limited at that time, we imported a Chocolate male from UK from the Foulby kennels…. Foulby Distctly Brown of Marsabet……..Our Cadbury. Cadbury is the father and grandfather of some well know champions in the show ring today. Sadly he is no longer with us, but we have saved semen from him which is kept under strict conditions at Taurus in Irene. He can be seen on the Labrador club web site under stud dogs.

 
Cadbury's daughters and granddaughters were bred to top Imported dogs and champions like Tom, Pirate (uk line), Shooter (South American line) , Sergeant (UK import) and Bruno (Danish import). Our original dogs were DNA tested for PRA through the USA Optigen group and happy to say that they were clear. All our breeding dogs are PRA clear through their parents/grandparents. All breeding dogs have elbows and Hips x-rayed and are Certified. Our Current Stud dog is Jack Daniels and he is from UK imported Parents.
Our dogs are long lived and healthy. All Labradors need to attend puppy training classes as this is how we are able to communicate with them. Labradors need a lot of human contact and we recommend that they are indoor dogs, so they become easy to train and live with. Dogs that live outside have little human contact/interaction and become wild and boisterous and can be come uncontrollable. They are great with children and love to play and retrieve. Please don’t leave small children alone with your puppy or dog as small children can accidentally hurt them. If you are looking for an active, intelligent dog to be a family companion, a Labrador is the dog for you.
