Ludo is annually vaccinated , kennel cough, routinely wormed flea & tick treated.

Ludo is our very special boy from Nelly final litter. He is an absolute pleasure to own ,having a very gentle, kind disposition – a truly loving boy. He has a fabulous dark chocolate coat, good eye colour, correct conformation , & excellent DNA results. Ludo has had a good start to his show career with some nice placings. We also go to a gundog trainer for regular lessons (Geoff Shore ). He has taken well to his training & is showing a willingness to learn & proving to be steady.We have recently attended a gundog water training day run by the United retriever club & also a gundog training day organized by the Yellow labrador club (chocs welcome !!),he enjoyed both days immensely & is showing a natural working ability. Ludo is proving that all the hard work is paying off as he enjoys his first season on the shoot, he is keen but steady, a useful picking up dog,& has picked pheasant, partridge, pigeon, & duck. He is a big strong athletic boy who will take time to fully mature, & is truly ‘fit for purpose’. He is amazing boy, one in a life time, who is able to wear many hats, a loyal family dog, showman in the ring , a steady dog on the shoot & sire to some lovely puppies with his sweet biddable temperament,& good looks.
We decided this summer to concentrate on the working side rather than showing. Ludo has entered several working tests.His first in ND/NH was held at Clytha Park & he achieved some excellant scores. On his second test He thrilled us…
