About Us

At Coldwater Kennels, our mission is to breed and compete with top quality field dogs and produce gentlemen’s shooting dogs. We produce dogs that have the genetics to be successful in the field trial and hunting environment. All of our dogs have all the prerequisite tests for health.

I have been active in running dogs for the last 30 years. I’ve had numerous dogs place in national championships and won 2 of them (Canadian Open and US National Amateur). I’ve judged 5 Nationals in Canada and the United States. Originally, I competed exclusively with Labradors in field trials, an area to which I am actively returning.

I’m the owner and guide of a licensed waterfowl operation in Saskatchewan, where I grew up and developed my passion for dogs. My wife and I now make our home on a farm in Southwestern Ontario. Our property has been developed with the training of Labradors and Springer Spaniels in mind. Fields have been planted that support the development of flushing dogs and a technical pond has been created to facilitate water training. We’ve developed this property to facilitate the testing of our dogs and prove out our breedings.

We are a small kennel dedicated to the quality production of Labradors and Springer Spaniels.
