CrookedJock Labrador Retrievers...and Roxy the Border Collie!
Puppies! All 2020 litters are now reserved (please contact me for more info)
We established CrookedJock Labrador Retrievers in August 2014 when we were expecting our first litter from Isla. We believe firmly in responsible breeding and the carefull placement of puppies in their new homes. All our girls live in our house and litters are raised within our home.
All our puppies are Kennel Club registered, vet checked and microchipped. We provide a puppy pack including the five weeks KC insurance, contract of sale, health check list, breeding pedigree, feeding/condition guidlines, feed and treats.
To ensure the responsible future breeding of our pups, we place Kennel Club endorsements on our litters.
Pups Growing Up
We love receiving updates on how our pups are getting on in their new 'forever homes' and we are very happy keeping in contact with new owners for whatever advice we can offer.
CrookedJock Inca is daughter of Izzy and Mordor Simba (aka Mufassa) from Charlie Thorburn's kennels. She is our third Lab, born in April 2015. Inca is a fantastic working dog who excels on the beating line and has earned her nick-name 'The Machine'! At home she is a calm and affectionate girl who has proven to be an excellent mother.
Inca is due her second litter on 08/01/2020 to FTCH Mitforton Oscar of Leadburn. He is a stunning and extremely talented fox red dog with excellent health scores and pedigree from Billy Steel's Leadburn Gun Dogs.
CrookedJock Pippa is also daughter of Izzy and Mordor Simba (aka Mufassa) from Charlie Thorburn's kennels. She is our fourth Lab, born in April 2015. Pippa lives with my parents but spends a lot of time on the farm with the pack and her sister. She is an incredibly affectionate and playful girl who has proven to be an excellent mother producing fantastic dual purpose pups.
Pippa has had two litters (2017 with Hawksgarth Belenus of Eshiels & 2019 with Afinmore Aftershock at Aarminias)
CrookedJock Olive is daughter of Isla and Oakglen Over the Border at Poniel (aka Red) from Anne McKay's kennels. She is our fifth Lab, born in July 2016. Olive is the quintessential traditional Labrador with broad head, sturdy legs, big bear paws, a thick coat and a huge heart. She has a fun loving nature with her favorite game being to ambush the others.
Olive has had her first litter to Afinmore Absolut (Devon) from Fiona Maclean's kennel. Born 28/02/2019.
CrookedJock Inferno is daughter of Inca and FTCH Mitforton Oscar of Leadburn. She was Born Jan 2020 and right from the start we knew she was determined. The training manual was thrown out as we got to grips with how she wanted to learn! She is just like her mum with a sharp and athletic nature whilst still maintaining her softer more cuddly side. Training is progressing well and I look forward to getting her out on the hill for a wee introduction into work this season. We hope to breed from her in the future as long as her health tests are good.
We choose our stud dogs very carefully to ensure high health status with the current compulsary and recomended tests. Finding a suitable match with our girls is important in breeding a well balanced, intelligent and affectionate pup.
Isla Delamitri Lady of the Manor (aka Isla Bear) was our first Lab, born in August 2009. She is from predominantly show lines, however, has proven herself to be a steady and reliable dog on the beating line. She has an incredibly gentle nature and is an exeptional mum. She is fantastic with other animals, and great with children. Her pups have found both working and pet homes across Scotland. Isla is now 10 years old and will not be having any more pups. We have kept one of her girls (see 'Olive' above).
Isabella Ice (aka Izzy-bizzy) is our second Lab, born in September 2010. She is from working stock and a long line of Field Trial Champs on both sides of her pedigree. Izzy is responsible for getting me into working with Labrador Retievers. She is never far from my side and despite her 'huntress' nature, she will always be found cuddled into me on the sofa each evening. She started out on the beating line with me, however, has come on superbly as a picking dog.
Roxy (aka Doo-Daa) came into our lives with an explosion in May 2011 and has never looked back. We, on the other hand, still don't know what hit us! A necessity in managing our growing flock of Rare Breed Sheep, she has single pawedly been responsible for ending marital disputes on how to conduct a gather. Full of character and typically Border Collie, she has helped me develop as a trainer.
