My love of flat-coats began in 1998 with Valley. Our path together led us into multiple venues of conformation, agility, obedience and field. My true love is working my dogs in the field watching them do what they were bred for.
My vision is to understand as much about the history of the breed and the dogs need to strengthen the gene pool and bring strong working lines into the present. I do not believe in line breeding since flat-coated retrievers have a very small gene pool and suffer from a high incidence of cancer.
