Shallowford have owned Labrador and Golden Retrievers for over 24 years. We are a small, established, family run, non-commercial kennel that prides ourselves in our dogs. We have a keen interest in obedience training and Pets as Therapy work but mainly our dogs are our extended family and we spend many happy hours exercising them locally on fells and woodland.
Our dogs are health checked, (hip, elbow and eye) as well as being DNA profiled. Our Labs are Optigen tested clear, meaning their pups can not develop pra.
We breed occasionally, foremost for the traditional Labrador and Golden Retriever temperament combined with the aim to produce perfect dogs, sound, biddable, intelligent, handsome and free from breed defects.
Our pups include a fully qualified Pets As Therapy Golden Retriever who has already begun work within a children`s hospice and a Labrador Retriever who has qualified as a Wheelchair Assistant. In addition we have excellent reports of pups in working homes. The highest percentage of our pups go to pet homes where they become very valuable family members.
We place our pups with the greatest of care and offer a sales contract mainly for their benefit and the reassurance of new owners.
