Ashdale Kennels is a small kennel approx one and a half hours drive north of Auckland CBD, on a 57 acre lifestyle block in Te Arai.
My aim is to breed quality, genetically sound labrador retrievers of impeccable temperament, that will make wonderful pets, working dogs and show exhibits.
As a child, we were not fortunate enough to have a family dog so it wasn't until I married and had my first son in 1988 that I owned my first dog, Sandy, a beautiful yellow labrador retriever. This was to be the beginning of my lifetime love affair with dogs.
Having a litter of puppies with a chocolate labrador, many years later was so rewarding that it inspired a passion in me to someday establish a small breeding kennel where I could immerse myself in "everything doggy" and at the same time, bring that same joy and fulfillment into the lives of others through my puppies.
I took a vet nursing course in order to educate myself more about the care of dogs and it is this training that has formed the basis of my strong insistence of only breeding from genetically sound bloodlines. ALL of my breeding stock are DNA tested for genetic disease and my labradors are also hip/elbow scored and carry current eye certs.
When my children eventually flew the nest I was able to devote more time and finance to my dream of owning my own kennel and in 2008, Ashdale was born.
I have dabbled in the showring with both breeds and having had some success, must admit to having caught "the bug" and I now look forward to attending a few more shows in the future.
