Welcome. We are a full time family oriented breeder and trainers of exceptional Labrador Retrievers. We offer a limited number of breedings each year drawn from exclusive bloodlines, some not previously available in North America. At Sundance Retrievers we have some of the top British, Irish and American bloodlines. Our Studs are Field Trial Champions , Field Trial Winners and Master Hunters.
Through careful breeding and selection we strive to maintain three gun dogs lines :
The Sporting Gun Dog : Hard charging dogs for the demanding sportsman and experienced dog handler
The Classic Gun Dog: Working dogs in the classic British tradition, calm and biddable, with outstanding game-finding and retrieving ability
The Occasional Gun Dog: Gentle and intelligent companion dogs that retain hunting instincts.
We work closely with our clients to select a breeding and a puppy best suited to their needs.
Using patience and sensitivity, we train and develop dogs that are eager to learn and who love their work.
We offer handler coaching, enabling our clients and their dogs to forge more effective and rewarding partnerships .
