WELCOME TO WORKINGMAN GUN DOG KENNELS
After investing my time and
effort and having a continuous struggle with
hardheaded American labs I decided to try
another way. After many hours of research for a
calm trainable gun dog, I found the British Labrador
gun dog worthy of the investment in time and
effort to end up with an excellent hunting dog
as well as a companion.
After identifying the British Lab
for my gun dog I started an intense study of pedigrees
for the best
bred dogs. What I found was a few breeders in the U.K.
who consistently produced and trained the top field
trial champions. Suffering in my ignorance, I discovered
most of these outstanding dogs were the result of a
careful process of line breeding. Armed with my new
found knowledge I started buying puppies and occasional
young bitches for the quality brood dogs that would meet
my kennel requirements.
Now with a solid base of brood
bitches, I am able to produce puppies and
started dogs second to none.
Sires of Workingman Dams
With a solid base of brood
dogs, I decided to start a AI breeding program using
frozen semen from best sires in England Scotland or
Page for sires we will be using. While this a long
range breeding plan, It will best serve our customers
and ensure that we are breeding best pups possible.

While our efforts may
be hunting dogs, our British gun dog Labradors are equally adept
as Diabetic Alert Dogs, Sporting Lifestyle Dogs, Special
Assistance Dogs, Therapy Dogs, Search and Rescue Dogs,
or for that matter our British Labradors will meet or
fill any need that is required in a Specialty Dog as
well being the ultimate hunting pal and family
After considerable thought I
decided on a payment plan to help and and meet the
needs of people who may need help in acquiring a
specialty need dog. Go to the
