“A passion that never ends”

Our philosophy is dedicated to the preservation and continuation of the Labrador Retriever breed.

Our breeding philosophy is based on strong maternal lines (the X-factor).

Leading stud dogs all have one thing in common. They are the result of strong maternal lines. Brood bitches who have excelled in the field, show, and most importantly as proven producers. Consistently passing their type, temperament, and soundness to their offspring.

Influential matriarchs of the breed such as Carpenny Whist, Covetwood Elousie of Carpenny, Coco Loco Tea Cup as well as successful brood bitch sires like Brandham’s Show Stopper and Carpenny Walpole are some of the genetic building blocks of our breeding program.

Our matriarch Olivia v.’t.  Wolmker was from the last litter bred by Willem Stegman. A game warden by profession who was a breeder for more than 40 years. Continuous emphasis on soundness, good looking Labradors that are able to work in the field all day.

Olivia exemplified the strength of her pedigree (X-factor) at the Dutch Labrador Kring (LKN) annual club specialty show in 2019 when she won the brood bitch /  progeny class with her offspring. Her son Mr. Prospector helped make this possible.

Thank you for your interest in our Labradors. Most importantly, thank you for sharing your passion for the Labrador Retriever. We encourage you to contact us to arrange a personal visit to visit our dogs
