Please call for a brochure.


Thanks for looking in, the Pups below are now all nearly three years old and are with their new families. We currently have no puppies available.

To follow the pups’ story from the start, scroll down to the photo of the ultrasound scan, then work upwards.

WARNING – Yes – it is really THAT LOUD

Too hot even in the shade:

After a big dish of biscuits the puppies slow down a bit and sprawl out anywhere they find themselves in the garden;

Little girl 4, Tessa, has had a good feast and now can’t be bothered to do much at all except enjoy a tickle

Girl 6 is Lola is going to a young family in the Midlands.
If you can work out which is which then you probably had more sleep than me last night…

Some things are oh so easy:
One puppy – lots of puppies

Girl 4 and her mum, Bayda, in the sunshine

Five weeks old:
Out in the sunshine for some of Bayda’s milk. Big Girl 4 in the middle making the best of it, she will soon be going to stay on a working farm with a delightful family west of Scunthorpe. The little boy pup is 2nd from the tail end, he will be going down south.


Out for a drive with some speed bumps along the way, Girl 1 was still awake, she’s wagging her tail hoping to get to her mum just in front of the cage.


Trying to get them together on the grass for a video I had to drop the phone & retrieve one of the pups. One of the others decided to take a video of the grass. Sometimes puppies are IMPOSSIBLE 🙂

Girl #4 (left ear) knows that her Mum is behind that screen with some lovely milk!

Dog Poisoned by a Scent Diffuser
“Saturday night I got home late and my dog didn’t recognize me. Being a nanny I thought I woke him up and he was having a night terror. Sunday, he was still acting weird. I realized that I had been running my new diffuser and decided to turn it off. Sunday afternoon, he was feeling better.
Today at work, my dog sitter said that he wouldn’t come out from under the bed. It was very odd as he is a happy dog.
I came from work early and again, he was very confused about who I was.
So I took him to emergency vet.
It turns out that the tea tree oil I was using in the diffuser is toxic for dogs. Thankfully the test showed that his liver was ok but we weren’t out of the woods yet. He was given fluids under his skin to get the toxins out.
The vet and the poison control are saying that they see these cases often now that the popularity of essential oil is growing.
Please make sure that the essential oils you are burning are not toxic for your pets. ” Marianne Whyte F.B.

Here is a list of essential oils not to use if you have a dog at home
Anise (Pimpinella anisum)
Birch (Betula)
Bitter Almond (Prunus dulcis)
Boldo (Peumus boldus)
Calamus (Acorus calamus)
Camphor (Cinnamomum camphora)
Cassia (Cassia fistula)
Chenopodium (Chenopodium album)
Cloves (Syzygium aromaticum)
Garlic (Allium sativum)
Goosefoot (Chenopodium murale)
Horseradish (Armoracia rusticana)
Hyssop (Hyssopus sp. with the exception of Decumbens)
Juniper (Juniperus sp. with the exception of Juniper Berry)
Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris)
Mustard (Brassica juncea)
Oregano (Origanum vulgare)
Pennyroyal (Mentha pulegium)
Red or White Thyme
Rue (Ruta graveolens)
Santolina (Santolina chamaecyparissus)
Sassafras (Sassafras albidum)
Savory (Satureja)
Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare)
Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia)
Terebinth (Pistacia palaestina)
Thuja (Thuja occidentalis)
Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens)
Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium)
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)

ALSO, DO NOT USE SCENTED CANDLES IN THE SAME HOUSE AS YOUR DOG! It is often the same toxic substances either man-made or synthetic.

Ten days from birth and only now do I have time to upload some videos, busy days!

Mum looking after her puppies
Seven new Lab puppies all feeding

All above content is from Bayda’s new litter which was born in the early hours of July 30th 2020.

The ultra-sound scan below is of the pups at five weeks, you can see three dark areas which are the fluid sacks and the lighter patch in the middle of each one is a pup. The skill of the operator means she is able to move the scanner around to find the pups then to tell by the way they are lying how many are visible. With the probability that there are more further up behind these.


These Working Black Labrador Puppies are from excellent parents.

Joni’s puppies from the videos & photos below are all enjoying their new homes and doing very well. Many thanks for all the kind comments.

Our Labrador puppies in Grimsby, Lincolnshire have every chance of becoming either top class working and competing gundogs, or probably the best pet dog you could ever hope for. My phone was in the office a few days back and whistled an incoming text message, I sent Joni to ‘go fetch’ and she ran upstairs & fetched my phone down for me. Try that with most other breeds and you’ll get either a blank stare or at best maybe an old sock that smells a bit interesting!

Trained to recall at this age – why have anything other than Labradors!

Here’s Jess (Girl #3) who is obviously having a dog’s life on her farm near Scunthorpe

For day no.1 please start near the bottom of this page, and then move upwards to
follow the puppies’ progress, thanks.

Here are some snaps of Joni’s puppies:

Danny is a
fantastic little dog and responding so well to training. Dave takes him to
puppy training now each week and he is usually top of the class and they use
him to show the others how it should be done!! He is very lively when he
needs to be but very steady as well. He has got retrieve down to a fine art
and Dave can throw three things down the garden and he will just go where
directed and leave the others until sent for them.

This is Millie who has a charmed life on a farm in Lincolnshire

Annie doesn’t beg for food or steal from people, she is perfectly happy to curl up in her bed while we are eating…. Well usually, Steve was in the middle of explaining this to his nan and she tried to steal his mince pie off his lap as he was mid sentence, the timing was perfect! she hasn’t done it since though. We went for a walk on Boxing day at Hubbards Hill and Annie learnt to swim / retrieve. We have our last week of puppy class this Sunday & she will now be a KC recognized good behaviour dog 🙂

She met our niece and was very sweet with her, she knows the difference between her toys and Eve’s toys and doesn’t snatch. The only problem we had was Eve and Annie like to talk to each other at 1am, 2am, 3am and 4am!

Henry is still a bit keen but he was Very Hungry !

Ash took second place in his first Field Trial – with no first place awarded as all other dogs were eliminated – AND he was “Gun’s Choice”

NOT REALLY – It had just attacked a slug so I had to clean it up a bit. Slugs are extremely sticky.

Re. Harvey – “The thunder on monday didn’t bother him. He’s doing well, toilet trained (to his new home) in three days, comes when called and has learned ‘No.’  This lad is very clever”


Jess has settled very well, I am amazed that she did not pine for her mother and siblings, but she is getting lots of attention to distract her!
She has been vaccinated, wormed, etc, back to the vet in a few weeks for the booster. You did a superb job at house training, obviously a
few accidents but mostly on the newspaper!
I will send you some photos soon – Sally.

Training is surprisingly easy. I just give them a command and show them what I want them to do and they seem to learn it straight away 🙂

Eight weeks old and they’ll sit outside and wait at teatime when there’s a bowl of food on the floor.

If I had a pound for every time I’ve opened the microwave to find a cooled-down mug of milk I could take myself out for a nice meal & a pint instead of making a coffee. These little pups do take up some time – but they are fun 🙂
12:10 am Early hours of tuesday morning. Last p/p & playtime before bed – Sat outside & each pup gets a couple of minutes on my knee while the others play then I take them down the garden, then I tell them it’s Bedtime & they aim for the door. All snuggled down & as I get their bowls ready for breakfast I hear one murmuring, it’s Girl number one sat there – she forgot to go!  Lifted outside and she has a piddle then goes back to the door. A very well mannered little girl she is, and she has just been chosen by a local farmer and his wife.

Monday 7th September:

Nine puppies and Labrador mum

Wednesday 2nd September:

This is the third day they’ve had to put up with me shaking a metal sheet about & throwing it on the floor – pity my poor neighbour on night shift…

As you can see, they’re not fazed by it.

Bank Holiday Monday – Steady rain, fortunately I have a gazebo up outside to give them some shelter. After lunch they were snoozing when I heard a squeak, little boy number three was sat waiting for something so I put him outside. He helped me to pick up a few leaves & twigs then did what little boys do and then sat waiting to go back to bed again 🙂 He will soon be going to his new home near Lincoln.

Saturday 29th August

The puppies’ new toys are a big result 🙂 they should reduce the squealing from ragged ears at midnight & daft o’clock in the morning when the world is still asleep. On the list for today is vacuum cleaner training and getting used to wearing a collar. I also have a big sheet of steel for a bit of thunder training.

Nine Baby doggies patiently sitting waiting to be lifted out of their bed – they’ve learnt that jumping up & squealing doesn’t get them out.

Here are the girls enjoying elevenses. The squeaking is coming from the four boys in their bed who’ve just had some milk –
but always want more! This was their last group-suckle. I have reduced the milk feeding as they have moved onto puppy food and so Joni has made less milk. Just enough for a couple of the smaller pups to take a little.

Ambitious Puppy

Getting a bit ambitious there

Four weeks old and they’re already trained to come to a whistle.

Three and a half weeks and they’ve taken over the kitchen.

Feeding at thirteen days, then at eighteen days – the first time they’d managed to get adventurous, but only because
Mum was there with some milk & they can now see where she is! They are starting to play-fight, and walking around their whelp box going into one corner to piddle – now comes the house training.

Details of the new litter:

Dam’s and Sire’s kennel club pedigrees were cross-checked to ensure no line-breeding and the only common ancestor is Pocklea Remus many generations back. Anyone familiar with the working Labrador gun-dog world will know that Pocklea Remus is legendary, his inclusion in the puppies pedigree bloodline is a big bonus. Also included going back to GGGG Grandparents with 9 International Champions are (Sire) 27 field trial champions, 2 field trial winners. (Dam) 28 field trial champions. Names you will know include Pocklea Adder, Pocklea Nettle, Haretor Mark of Drakeshead, Drakeshead Gypsy, Sandringham Magpie, Sandringham Tramp, Drakeshead Connie.

The national hips score average for Labradors is total=16. The Sire of this litter has hip score 3/3 (total =6) eyes 0/0. DNA tested clear. The Dam of this litter of puppies has hip score 6/4 (total =10)  Elbows 0/0. Eyes clinically unaffected by MRD & TRD (Minster Vets, Newark.)

The Sire, Hanrebor Blackcap known as Ash (bred and handled by Andrew Slingsby of Hanrebor Gundogs, Lincolnshire) at three years old is showing really well in working gundog tests. One of his half-brothers from his Dam Levenghyl Hooker (Hips 2/3) has excelled in competition:

Andrew Slingsby:

We are very proud to have bred ‘Hanrebor Sir Patrick’ owned by Gerda and Henk Companjen in The Netherlands who gained the prestigious title of ‘CLA European Gundog of the Year 2014‘ at the CLA Game Fair held at Woodstock in Oxfordshire.

Here’s Dad – Hanrebor Blackcap with his winner’s shield and red rosette for his very first Puppy Test at the United Retriever Club Lincolnshire, June 2014

The proud new mum is Joni Genie,

She’s now nearly ten years old, some chap a few weeks back guessed she was about…. two-and-a-half.  She is very well known in the north east of Lincolnshire having worked on various driven & rough shoots for beating, peg work and picking up. She has made a name for herself with many fine retrieves and will go ‘on point’ when she’s keen. She has also worked in Scotland for geese & duck along with pigeon and wildfowling work in Lincolnshire. A canada goose is no problem!

Mum Jonie Genie won the Brocklesby Country Show gundog scurry in 2013 (Lincolnshire U.K.) with no previous scurry training or experience. In 2014 she was placed 4th & 5th from her two runs first thing out of the car in the morning and being a bit daft, she ran even faster in the afternoon but the wind was blowing and the dummies must have gone a bit further so her times were slower!
