Castlegar Today

Our kennel is located in a beautiful part of Ontario, Grey-Bruce County. We have eight acres with plenty of room for our Labs to run and enjoy the country sunshine. My husband Stan and I have 2 beautiful boys and we share our house with our Labs.propertyabc.jpg - 29771 Bytes
Our kennel has produced many Canadian champions over the years, specialty winners, working certificate, obedience and therapy dog titles. We strive for beautiful Labrador type; an overall balanced dog with a sweet temperament. All of our puppies are raised in the home where they are monitored and socialized constantly. We usually produce one or two litters annually, so please reserve early. We also make sure that our puppies go to wonderful, loving homes where they will receive plenty of attention. Visitors are welcome by appointment and references from our previous puppy buyers are always available.

How It All Began

I received my first Lab in 1983. The puppy was a lovely black male who became Ch. Jencroft's Orion Starr (Am. Ch. Elysium's Citizen Kane ex Ch. Oaklea Brodie At Jencroft). Over the years, I've handled many Labradors in the show ring for a number of kennels and received many big wins. In 1985, I started working for Ken & Eileen Grant, Oaklea Labrador Retrievers. The knowledge I gained from them was incredible. From whelping puppies to travelling across the U.S. to dog shows and it turned out to be a wonderful learning experience. I will always be grateful for the time they spent teaching me proper canine husbandry and the art of breeding dogs.
