While tremendously successful in all his ventures, Stoney is perhaps best known for the quality pups he produced throughout his lifetime. His progeny includes 28 breed champions, 18 obedience titles, 23 field titles, and 6 agility titles. Though Stoney is no longer with us, his contribution to the breed is legendary.   We have frozen semen available to very select bitches.

This gorgeous
Stoney son (Atari grandson) finished very quickly, undefeated in the classes and with 4 majors including breed over specials. He is a moderate dog and a very bold worker that is loaded with drive. His first litter (bred to a Banquo bitch) hit the show rings in the fall 2008 and the repeat breeding in fall 2009. Several were major pointed under one year of age, several placing at the FCRSA National Speciality, and competing in rally, obedience, hunting tests, and dock diving! TWO group placements at 9 months old! We are so pleased in what Pete is producing. The pups  have carried great bone and substance, beautiful heads and awesome talent in the field, (along with a cool sense of humor).  Inquiries invited. Frozen semen available.

Watson is the result of a frozen semen breeding from a lovely dog... Rotherfield's Call Me Sir (Finn), who is owned and loved by Alison Rattray of Scotland. Finn is the son of the great VBOS The Kentuckian, the 2011 Crufts winner. This breeding allowed us to add some classic European lines including Fossdyke, Branchalwood, Braemist, and Steelriver. He is a beautifully balanced dog with a wonderful personality. He has inherited some great talent in the field and will be doing some obedience soon. He LOVES dock diving and hope to continue pursuing those those titles too. Watson is available to approved bitches and will add both elegance and substance to your breeding program.

     Major is a lovely moderate dog with a gorgeous head and bone. He achieved six titles in one year. His temperament is beyond reproach. He gets along wonderfully with other dogs and has proven to be a wonderful "godfather" to puppies. Watch for Major as he embarks on his tracking and field titles in the spring. Also watch for him in limited showing as a special. Major is owned and loved by Anya Dornyak of Amarden Kennels.

He finished 2010 ranked as the #13 Flat Coated Retriever and #20 by all breeds defeated.
His good looks are matched only by his wonderful temperament. Drew is also busy with field work and is showing great promise in that venue also. Drew's pedigree offers some of the best European and US bloodlines with strong working ability. Drew is owned and loved by Lynn Cohn. Keep an eye on this very SPECIAL boy.
