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.

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.

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!

Repeat breeding in September 2020

Full reservations - call for availability 

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.
