About the Breed
Gentle, intelligent and family-friendly, the Labrador Retriever hails from the land of Orijen -- Canada! It is the most popular breed in several countries including New Zealand. Originally trained to jump overboard into icy waters and haul fishermen's nets to shore, this versatile hunting breed comes in shades of black, chocolate, and yellow. They excel as guide dogs for the blind, as part of search-and-rescue teams, therapy dogs, in narcotics detection with law enforcement, as well as wonderful family pets.
About the Breeder / Kennel
Situated between the Kaokaoroa and Silver Ranges in Hawkes Bay, is Skylit Farm, a property we share with our very special Labrador Retrievers. Our founding dogs were originally imported from the USA. They were hand selected for their excellent health, exceptional pedigrees, wonderful temperaments, loving personalities, and beautiful colours. Representing the full range of "field" style to "bench" style in a wide range of colours, we are proud to say there are none quite like them in all of New Zealand and Australia.
Besides being excellent retrievers, each of our dogs is a Community Care Dog. Through the organisation Lend a Paw Labs, they volunteer (or are in training to volunteer) to assist individuals, families, organisations, and communities as Therapy dogs, Scent dogs, Assistance dogs, and Literacy dogs.
All of our dogs live in our home and are integral members of our family. Contact us to find out when our next litter is due.
