"True Labrador Retriever temperament is as much a hallmark of the breed as the "otter" tail. The ideal disposition is one of a kindly, outgoing, tractable nature; eager to please and non-aggressive towards man or animal. The Labrador has much that appeals to people; his gentle ways, intelligence and adaptability make him an ideal dog.  

 Labrador Breed Standard

Our Boys

The height at the withers for a dog is 22-1/2 to 24-1/2 inches (22-1/2 inches UK standard). Any variance greater than 1/2 inch above or below these heights is a disqualification. Approximate weight of dogs and bitches in working condition: dogs 65 to 80 pounds (UK: “Chest of good width and depth, with well sprung barrel ribs – this effect not to be produced by carrying excessive weight.”)

Terremere's Raising a Little Cain at Aisling

Son of Shadybry's Raising Cain at Terremere

English/Show Champion Lines 

Willcare, Chambray, Weikenlin, Venetian

Call Name: Little Cain

Phenotype: Chocolate

Genotype: (Coat Color) EEbb (no hidden Yellow)

Pedigree and Genetic Testing Results

Little Cain, a "milk" chocolate, has the traditional temperament of the Labrador Retriever; while he loves to retrieve and swim, he is content to simply "be" with his humans.  

His gentleness is evidenced with his interactions with each litter born during his lifetime here at Aisling; he can be trusted to gently play with them and is often used as a helper to round them up after free play. Cain is out of both Show/Conformaton and Field/Trial lines.  He is 22 1/2 inches tall and weighs 85 lbs. 

Little Cain sired his first litter this year and appears to have passed on his gentle and calm nature to his offspring.  #BestPuppyEver - I've raised a lot of Labrador Puppies (two since Cain) and I don't see his losing that hashtag - unless it's to one of his offspring!

Cain will have puppies available for sale in the Fall of 2019.  Reservations are available now.

Quail Meadow's Dunroamin' at Aisling

English/Show Champion Lines

Grandquest, Ridge View, Lubberline, 

Call Name: "Roamin"

Phenotype: Yellow

Genotype: eeB* (*may be B or b - testing to come)

Birth: May 30th 2018 

Pedigree and Genetic Testing Results

A traditional Labrador with the moderate body structure and block head that Labs are known for, like Little Cain, Roamin's first love is to be with his human's. His temperament includes the traditional desire to "stick around" and be ready for the next command that I remember from the Labradors of my childhood.  

Bred under a philosopy similar to ours (see About Us for details), he fits perfectly into our Breeding Program. Like our Little Cain, he was bred from both Show/Conformation and Field/Trial lines.  Roamin' is 22 1/2  inches tall and weighs 80 lbs.  

Roamin' will Sire his first Yellow litter this Fall. Reservations for that Yellow litter are available now.

Our Girls

The height at the withers for a bitch is 21-1/2 to 23-1/2 inches (UK: 21 1/2 to 22 inches.) Any variance greater than 1/2 inch above or below these heights is a disqualification.  Approximate weight of  bitches in working condition:  bitches 55 to 70 pounds. (UK: “Chest of good width and depth, with well sprung barrel ribs – this effect not to be produced by carrying excessive weight.”)

Passport's Breagha Lass at Aisling

International Show Champion Lines

Stoneleigh, Atlantic, Gateway, Dickendall

 Great Grandfather - Gateway's Nothin' But Trouble

Call Name: Bree

Phenotype: Yellow

Genotype: eeB* (*may be B or b - testing to come)

Pedigree and Genetic Testing Results

Our Bree is out of international Champion Show/Conformation lines. Her temperament is that of the traditional Labradors I knew as a child.  Easily trained, gentle and loving, she retains the water and retrieve drives that make the Labrador unique.  Her lovely Yellow coat ranges in color from Fox Red to nearly white Angel Wings at her shoulders.  Her growth has been slow and steady, a genetic trait that is shown to protect hips and elbows in the medium and large size breeds.  

Bree  and Roamin' will have puppies for sale in 2020

Tru-Heart's Kona of the Storm at Aisling

Kona = leeward of the island; sheltered from the wind; calm side of an island

Of the Storm = literally, the daughter of Storm

Call Name: Kona

Phenotype: Chocolate (Dark)

Genotype: EEbb (no hidden Yellow {e})

Pedigree and Genetic Testing Results

Our Foundation Girl.  Kona has the traditional, moderate body structure and head of the Labrador's I knew as a child.  Her Dam was a Show/Field cross and her Sire a Show/Conformation line.  She loves the water and her retrieve  drive is strong and was always the first up and into the RV and the last to come inside the house when we returned home. 

Her beautiful coat is a rich chocolate so dark as to sometimes fool visitors into believing she is black (pictured with our Black Angus above).  The dark chocolate is the prefered color for conformaton and has been passed on to nearly 100% of her off-spring. 

Her gentleness is one of her most endearing traits and she loves to cuddle up with her humans - a hallmark of the Labradors of old who had the energy and drive required to work beside their Masters and yet were content to lay near their feet and hearth when asked. 

Kona will puppies for sale in the Fall of 2019 (waiting list available)

Terremere's Dream A Little Dream At Aisling

Aisling ~  dream, vision, from Old Irish aislinge

Phenotype: Yellow

Genotype: eeBB (no hidden Chocolate {b})

Pedigree and Genetic Testing Results

Our second Foundation Girl, Dreama is out of Field/Trial lines with ancestral Show/Conformation in her pedigree. Dreama is the Labrador that never meets a stranger whether it be human or canine.  She is always a favorite at the camping ground due to her friendly and fun loving nature. She exhibits the traditional water and retrieve drive and the natural curiousity and lack of fear of the traditional Labrador.  

Her most endearing trait is how she invites other dogs into whatever her Pack is involved in. At the beach, she will run to the shore to invite other dogs to come in and play and has succeeded in getting even the most fearful of them into the water with her.  

Dreama will have Yellow puppies for sale this winter (2019/2020).
