Our History

Kevin's beginnings in dogs were with his father who was passionate about Jack Russell terriers. Jack Russells where still a considerably unknown breed in Canada and had not yet gained the popularity they have today due to their presence in pop culture (being featured in multiple movies and TV shows). He owned a number of Jacks that were shown in sanctioned JRTCC shows and entered in Hunt Tests. His best stud dog was Holiday’s Ringo Star who was purchased from Andre Jeanotte at Holiday kennels. This dog was the foundation of our Kennel and he sired many quality pups who had the same taste for life and vigour as Ringo!

 

Since those days, Kevin spent a considerable amount of time with Andre Jeanotte of Holiday Kennels who proved to be an encyclopedia of information on breed standard, responsible breeding and basically all things K9 related. To this day Andre is his go to for guidance and support with the breeding program. 

 

Kevin purchased his first Lab in 1998: Maverick. He was a yellow lab from a great confirmation line. From day one Maverick loved retrieving anything in site and never missed an opportunity to flush out a grouse during walks on our property on Wolf Lake 15kms north of Wakefield, Quebec, nestled in the beautiful Gatineau Hills. This is when he became interested in hunting and training Maverick to develop his natural ability. After attending a number of HRC training sessions as well as CKC and HRC Hunt tests he was hooked. Shortly after he began duck hunting with Maverick and he has not looked back since.

We now operate as a family team breeding and trainig dogs with the goal of bettering the breed and providing families and hunters with the best dogs possible.

 

Although our main focus is field ready Labrador Retrievers we also breed show quality Boston Terriers. We love their fun loving disposition and although they love to run and play with the Labs on the farm, their favorite place is next to us on the couch.

 

No matter what breed, our aim is to produce quality dogs, sound in body and mind. We have planned litters and take reservations to approved homes. On occasion, we also have started field dogs, retired dogs, and rescues looking for good homes.
