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!

We are a small operation and concentrate on a small number of litters per year.  Breedings sell out fast so please contact us as soon as possible if you are interested in one of our future matings.


Stud Service

CHG studs are available for breeding to outside parties.  Health clearances are required.  Natural, frozen or fresh chilled can be arranged.

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.

A recent addition to the CHG crew, Sky comes to us via Louisiana.  Her sire, Intl. FTCh Lesser Burdock Abbotstone MH is the highest titled UK dog in the states. Her dam also comes from an absolute amazing pedigree with many FTCh's.  We are very exciting about the future of this little girl.

Kim came to us from Ireland, having been well started by Mr. Thomas Hughes.  We took the great start that she had and turned it into a started title just weeks after arriving here in the U.S.  A very stylish girl who loves to please, she's also a great mother and will be taking CHG into the future with her babies,

Tucker left us in 2016, but we still have semen left in storage. One of the hardest driving and talented dogs I have ever had the pleasure of training and running, Tuck was truly a gentleman's gun dog.  With 1000's of birds to his credit, he managed to achieve his GMHR title at 4 years old and was my best hunting partner for many years. He is truly missed everyday, but he left us with the legacy of his fine pups that carry on those same traits.

Breeding Plans

The fall 2019 litter was so incredible we decided to do it again! The first litter went all of the U.S. and are doing amazing things from South Carolina all the way to Alaska!

CHG's foundation stud Tucker is being pulled out of the freezer for the last time.  Tuck's record and ability speak for themselves, as he is talked about with the fondness of memories.  Lacey's winning personality and working ability will make this a pairing for the record books.

opening for working homes only - call for availability 

Two amazing dogs that will be a line breeding on FTCh Levenghyl Malusi.  Once Sky's health clearances come back with the same results as her prelims we are going to make this happen.  Blacks and yellows expected with sweet personalities and a superb working ability.
