Our dogs are used extensively for upland and waterfowl hunting as well as participating in hunt tests and field trials and are titled with NAHRA, HRC, CKC and the AKC. All of our dogs are OFA and CERF certified and have been tested for CNM, EIC and PRA. We are located in Wellington County an hour west of Toronto.

Introduction to the rules and disciplines for a hunting retriever.



With an interest in training our first retriever for waterfowl hunting, Chris discovered the world of retriever trials. His enjoyment in running these events led to his interest in becoming a judge. Chris is licensed to judge NAHRA events for all working levels.

Sue enjoys working with the dogs both in training and successfully handling at test events. This includes - 


  • NAHRA Started, Intermediate and Senior hunt tests, including running and qualifying at six NAHRA Invitationals.

  • CKC Junior, Senior and Master hunt tests, including running and qualifying at the Canadian National Master hunt test

  • HRC Started, Seasoned, Finished and Upland hunts, including running HRC's Grand hunt.

  • CKC Junior / Qualifying Field Trials

  • AKC Master hunt tests


As well, Sue also sits on the NAHRA Executive Board of Directors.
