The Southerly Show and Field Successes

More important than any success in the show or field trial arena is providing sound healthy labradors for families who wish to share their lives with the best dog breed on earth.
Over forty years of breeding I have made many wonderful friendships with the owners of my puppies all over New Zealand, Australia and the United States. Many have made great efforts to keep in touch & plenty have come back to me for their second or third Southerly labrador. I value these friendships highly and am delighted to be able to place puppies in such wonderful homes.
Joan Antrobus joined me in Southerly when together we decided to import Barley & Emma from Marleen & David Hepper of Mardas Kennels UK. Together we have bred and shown some wonderful labradors by combining my original lines with these Mardas imports. Subsequently further new genetic input came from Chocorua's Southerly Seafarer and the use of frozen semen imported from UK, Finland, USA & Holland
Specially we thank those who took puppies with potential and with much committment acheived Show or Field Trial Championship success.
