I thought it has been a while since I've sent you a
photo. We love Odie, He is a very confident dog. Has passed tick of approval to
be a therapy dog and we have been told he'd be perfect for customs! Here's a
few photos for you of Odie from Lottie's litter :)
Molly is 16 weeks old, she just had her vaccination at the vet. They said she is very healthy, a good weight, her adult teeth are coming through and is a lovely color. She is a gorgeous dog. We have her in puppy school, she knows how to sit, stay, drop, roll over, shake hands, walks on the lead very well and gets along with our cat harry most of the time ill keep the photos coming as she grows up. Thank you for producing this lovely dog. Cheers, Dee and Brendan
Hi Wendy and Mark,
Hope all is going well with your house sale and ultimate
Just a quick update on how our young Elmer is progressing,
he is a champion. Iím over 60 years old and have quite a few dogs over
those years, this little feller is the best Iíve had. He is so
trainable. He is just 4 months old and is so easy to train.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Just thought I'd send through a photo of Smoke now he is really grown up! It's not the best, it was taken from my mobile this morning as we were playing on the equipment at a local park.
He is really going well, he's so much fun! We are still planning on a trial in the near future, but we are having great fun at trying different things, like clicker training, free shaping etc. He's very switched on and he scares me how much he will think about things and shock you when you don't think he's worked it out yet! Love,Love this dog
Hi Wendy& Mark, just to update you on our dear little Zac. He is a ripper! Lives to retrieve and we couldn't be happier with him.
We spend a lot of time walking him after work and on the weekend, for exercise a socialization.
He loves Vic Park and took a dive in off the deck into the dam yesterday, he went under and popped up to find the lure!
OMG he loves to chew and eat!
We are still giving him Black Hawk and also kangaroo for healthy variety, his coat is glossy!
He is also well wormed and has flea protection, he loves the bush and has no fear of the gunshots.
Leigh adores him, he say's he is the best dog he has ever had, he is so affectionate and loves a cuddle.
So all round it is a very happy story and a perfect match for our family.
Thank you again so much for our little Zac!
Kind regards Hayley & Leigh
Hi Wendy, I hope you are surviving the cold weather we have been having. Hopefully we are over the worst of the weather.
"Oz" the Black Male Labrador I purchased from you is now 8 months old and I have taken a couple of pics of him for you.
He has developed very fast and is fit and strong. I am also happy with his looks and he has a particularly attractive head - you may remember I was after a blocky (boof) head. As he develops further and fills out, I am sure he will reach his full potential.
He has a great temperament and rarely barks which is great. He also loves the water and the bush which is great.
Hello Wendy and Mark,
thought to take a moment and give you guys some feed back. I just visited your website and was very moved by everything that is there. Apart from your beautiful labs I found your heart and soul. Congratulations to you both for what seems a life time of dedication to our breed with much more to come. Not only congratulations for the fabulous results you have from working your dogs but for the efforts to improve with your breeding program. And training methods.
I also breed Labradors but it has only been for a few years. I show my labs. But gosh i have to say that I was truly moved to see your dogs working in the field. I know my dogs are smart and would love that kind of natural activity. May be one day I will venture down that path.
I find the show world very competitive and not many will take the time to give a word of praise but I will.
Congratulations and thank you for your website,
Good evening Wendy,
We have called her Sally, after one of our previous labs. I get her to do 2 - 3 short retrieves a day with a duck wing and she is so keen. She runs flat out and comes back just as quickly very proud of herself. She can also follow a short blood trial of about 2 m as she now knows that she gets to eat the small bit of steak at the end of the track! She is just fantastic and has so much character.
Just a quick email to let you know that our new pup 'Chachi' is settling in
He cried sporadically during the night for the first couple of days, but is
now sleeping right through. He's a bundle of energy, very responsive and so
clever - both Andrew and I are absolutely besotted!
Thanks again for our amazing dog!
Erin & Andrew
Kevin is a great dog
We hide his food bowl and he has to find it
before each feed.
I can no longer find hiding spots. His sniffing ability
surpasses our hiding spots. Top of the clothes line worked for about 3
Just thought you may like to see a recent picture of Kobe. He
has been an absolute joy! He is such a happy boy, loves his trips to the park,
plays well with all the other dogs and looks forward to his nightly visit inside
the house. The kids adore him and he adores them.
People talk about
puppies being a pain and such hard work- not if you get the right dog! People
at the park are amazed at such a young dog being so well behaved and want to
know where we got the "special" dog whistle as it works a treat .
Just letting you know that little 'Asha' has
settled in beautifully. She calmed down within minutes after we left your place
and she slept the whole way home. I can't believe how confident she is in a
brand new environment.
She slept outside all night and didn't make a
sound, we even copped a thunder storm but it didn't worry her at all. Thank you so much, I'm absolutely wrapped with her. she is a dream so
Hi Wendy and mark
Just updating you on dads pup Tikka. She has settled in very well and is
showing her outgoing personality. She's growing confidence everyday. Her and
Asha have taken to each other like a duck to water! We are wrapped with her,
thank you again
Hi Wendy & Mark
After months of training,this was Chloe's 1st hunt. She was a joy to watch in full flight.
Many thanks for my great companion.
Hi Wendy & Mark,
We wanted to provide you with an update about our
beautiful girl Luna. She is now 15 weeks old & we couldn't be happier. She
is just over 10kg and is absolutely beautiful. Her coat is so shiny & she
receives many compliments about her gorgeous face & beautiful nature.
We are amazed by her intelligence & weren't surprised when she was
top of the class at puppy school. Other pups were learning to sit & Luna
knew how to sit, stay, come, shake, drop, roll over & crawl, retrieve, All
for food of course.
As you predicted, she loves to play but equally
loves a cuddle & just wants to be near you. She is our little shadow. She's
great in the car & jumps right in on command so we are able to take her on
lots of adventures.
We have attached a few photos which we hope you like.
We couldn't imagine life without her!!
Kelly & Dave &
Hi Wendy & Mark,
Kelly and I would like to give you an update on Luna. She
is so smart and we continue to receive compliments on how smart and good looking
She has got traces of scouts coat as we've noticed she
has got a small amount of chocolate coming through.
She loves the water so much. We can't go for a walk
without her finding some water to jump in. She's very confident with her
swimming where she will try and catch the ducks in the wetlands Behind our
Kelly and I are also exploring the option of getting her
a friend. So we are putting a expression of interest to you where we would like
another black either male of female. We think that she would benefit having a
friend and they would learn of each other.
I've attached a picture of Luna. She loves carrots.
David and Kelly.
Hi Wendy and Mark,
Well another duck season is underway and I
have to say this year, despite being a little bit low in the duck numbers
department, will be my most memorable opening of all due to the fact that for
the first time I wasn't alone looking at my watch waiting in anticipation for it
Instead I was pre occupied with 1, my young fella, excited to be
finally out duck hunting with dad in his very first hunt and 2, being absolutely
mesmerized by a little black ball of fluff that sat at the edge of the blind not
moving a muscle, not even the slightest, eyes fixated on 60 odd decoys.
shots began ringing out around the area he sat there and did not move and as a
mob of teal headed our way, a quick blow of the caller, and they were pitching
in, two shots two teal, so with a kid screaming "you got them daddy you got
them", with a smile from ear to ear, I look in the direction of the fallen
ducks, only to see a eager young Labrador half way out in shallow water making
his first retrieve.
I was so astonished to see him doing this I actually
thought to myself, " I haven't even been doing any retrieving training, this is
awesome I don't have to do anything, I won't even have to get in the water this
Well let's just say I was way wrong because what he brought back or
should I say towed back by the cord attached was plastic and probably not really
I was stumped between what to do I praise him? Or Do I stop him
from making a habit of it, so I tied him up I hope I did the right thing anyway
because after that he cracked the sulks big time.
But aside from that he
showed great concentration and a natural drive to want to retrieve given I
haven't done to much with him yet and how young he is and you were certainly
right Wendy when you said Kody's pups love the water. I've even caught him
asleep half in his water bowl.
Anyway here is some photos of our opening, and
I just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity to get one of of your dogs, I
look forward to catching up with you guys at some stage for some training tips
and for you to see how he's going
I just wanted to keep in touch and send some photos of our
'Carlo' from your Kody / Kupa litter. We adore him, and he has settled into our
family beautifully, he is a credit to you and Mark.
I will send some more
photos as he grows , he is going to be a big boy ! He is also demonstrating
great natural ability in retrieving.
I just wanted to let you know after
only speaking with you on the phone a couple of times , You understood exactly
what we were looking for, and he is perfect in every way, thank you so much.
Hope you are well.
Just wanted to drop you a line and say how pleased we are with our little
Luna! She's just turned 5 months now and we couldn't be happier with her.
smart, beautiful puppy that's always very eager to please. Yes she has her
'crazy puppy' moments, but what puppy doesn't! She is just a joy
to have around
and we're so glad she's a part of our family. Thank you for breeding a beautiful
Hope your well , I thought I would send you a photo of Lilly , she
has an amazing nature and has become a big part of our family . She is very
obedient and is retrieving dummy's and the odd rabbit really well , I haven't
tried her on ducks yet but that's my next step .
Bear weighs 11.5 kg now and is an absolute delight, he loves
chewing and starts puppy school next week.Our cat Bella is warming up to him and brushes herself up against
him as she walks past and one time she touched noses with him,he wants to play with her but she is not ready for that as yet.
Damian here, just wanted to tell you that our almost 6 month old puppy Nala is
is the smartest most loving lab We have ever met. She loves to retrieve, is a
very strong swimmer and has an amazing calm temperament. She has started
obedience training and she is already so advanced.
beagle Max has met his true best friend. I will be taking her on our first
proper hunting trip soon so I can't wait. I hope the rest of the litter is
is a snap of her earlier.
Damian and Rocio
I just wanted to let you know that all is well with our beautiful
She has proved a wonderful addition to the family; plenty of work,
but so much fun. You were right about her colouring. She has a
really nice honey gold colour (attached).
Thanks again.All the best,
Ian and Kulliki
thought I would send a quick update on Buzz! He settled in really well, loves
all the cuddles from the kids as much as he likes to play and snuggle up with
the cat. He certainly has grown a lot in the last couple of weeks it is crazy
how big he has gotten, even has a little bark now. We have started some little
training so he knows Sit, Stay and waits for a command to eat. He also loves to
retrieve the dummy!
again - he has filled a big hole in our backyard and hearts! I have attached some pics!
Hi Wendy and Mark,
I have attached a couple of pics of Winnie (who has earnt
the nickname Turbo, lol)
She has settled in well, Muchie and her are becoming firm
friends and have a great time playing together.
She is responding really well to her name (apart from her
being a complete Labrador at times and ignoring you because she has something
better to do). She has learnt sit already and will wait for her food, sitting,
while it gets prepared. She has a small walk each day on the slip lead while
Much has his morning run. She loves beating up the cats which have accepted her
really well given their age (12yo) but she does get the odd bash around the
head at times (which doesnít seem to faze her).
We will keep you posted J
