Huntsdown is a small hobby kennel overlooking Belleisle Bay just outside Hampton, New Brunswick, Canada. We are permanently registered with Canadian Kennel Club and are lifetime members.

We acquired our first dog in 1971 and have been breeding quality Labradors since 1976. We imported two males and a female from England in 1977, another female in 1978 and the rest is history. Over the years we have produced multiple Best in Specialty Show winners, All Breed Best in Show winners, Obedience High in Trial winners, guide dogs for the blind, drug and arson detection dogs, excellent gun dogs, and cherished companions of unsurpassed temperament.

All of our dogs have appropriate health clearances for hips, elbows, and eyes.

Puppies are sold on non-breeding agreements and will be registered with the Canadian Kennel Club. They are de-wormed, examined by a veterinarian, and have their first vaccination before they leave for their new homes.

Our goal has always been to produce Labradors that are equally at home in the show ring, in the duck blind, or on the couch, and who excel in:

  • TYPE —- We breed English type Labrador Retrievers


  • TEMPERAMENT —– Highly intelligent, laid-back, loyal, gentle, and kind.


  • TRAINABILITY —- Because of their wonderful temperaments and strong desire to please, our Labs are fast learners and extremely easy to train.

As a result of our house fire in April of 1998 and devastating personal tragedy in December of 2000 our showing and breeding was severely curtailed, however during the last five years we have become increasingly active in the ring where we have had a number of nice wins at the few Specialty Shows that we have attended.
