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 (www.nahra.org) 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!

CHG Crew

GMHR MHR WR TTF CAS HI Shady Character

'Oakley'

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!

OFA Hips - Good

Elbows - Normal

Eyes - Normal

Clear for PRA, EIC, SD2 and CNM

SR Townshead Sally

'Lacey'

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.

CHG Abbotstone Sunrise

'Sky'

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'

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.

GMHR TTF CasHI Never Tucker Out

"Tucker"

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.  

OFA Hips Excellent

OFA Elbows Normal

CERF Clear

Clear for CNM, EIC and PRA

Apache Bob of Sugar Creek

"Baker"


This young boy comes from the best the UK has to offer, FTCh Tullyah Jasper x Apollobay Birdbrook Connie.  Even at this lad's young age he is showing great promise with a calm demeanor, but a 'go-get em' attitude when training.  Super affectionate and intelligent as well, we can't wait to see this guy mature into a great dog. 

Clear for CNM, EIC, PRA and SD2

 

FTW Apollobay Crimson King

"Diego" (Owned by Mr. Alan Dolan)

This big guy is as talented as he is affectionate.  Coming from Ireland in 2019, he has proven himself as both a viable stud and great companion in the house and field.  Diego spent several months with us in 2019, and sired a really amazing litter with now retired Jessie.  We can't wait to see what the future holds for him, and what he will bring to the CHG program as an outside stud.  

BVA Hip 7/5

BVA Elbows 0

BVA Eyes Unaffected

Breeding Plans

GMHR Oakley x SR Kim

These two dogs seem to hit it off and make some truly amazing pups.  Unless Kim gets a better offer, we are likely going to repeat this breeding again in the fall of 2021.

Repeat Breeding Fall 2021

GMHR Tucker x SR Lacey

THIS IS THE LAST BREEDING FROM TUCKER!

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.

Spring 2021

Full Reservations 

FTW Diego x Sky

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.

Summer  2021
