Welcome to Castle Heights Gundogs

The Premier UK Gun Dog Breeder in the Northeast

'Steady as a rock, but ready to roll' 


I have been training and breeding labradors for 20 years. Not only are we avid hunters, but we also run our dogs in the North American Hunting Retriever Association ( to try and bring the best dog possible to the field. Our dogs are a part of the family and we have brought many of them to the master hunter level.  Our puppies have had great success across the country in both the hunting fields and hunt testing.  We look forward to hearing from you so we can help you find your next best friend!

Oakley is the offspring of our foundation stud Tucker.  He has proven himself time and time again as a magnificent upland and waterfowl retriever.  Calm and reserved as a pet, breathes fire when hunting!  Couldn't ask for a better combination of an all around retriever!

Lacey is coming up through the ranks.  This Irish import from FTCH Artistryn Ulrich (2018 IGL 2nd Place) currently has a started title, but is joining the ranks of the big dogs in training! A pleasant and sweet demeanor turns to all business when its time to go to work.  A never quit attitude and a super sense of smell keeps this girl pushing harder everyday.

Another Irish Lass from a great field breeding FTW Tweedshot Titus of Brenjon x FTW Cuileann Ruby.  She's sweet as sugar and will bowl you over to get at her bird.  Extremely obedient and her only fear is that she will make a mistake. We have great things planned for this little gal who passed 4 in a row and titled in NAHRA Started this spring!

An Oakley offspring (GMHR Oakley x Copperbirch Go West Young Girl) that will hopefully carry the CHG name into the future.  His personality and curiosity are something else, he certainly keeps us on our toes! We have very high hopes for this young lad! He also achieved his started title just a couple weeks after his first birthday!!
