Breeding black Flat-Coated Retrievers since 2005

About Knightcastle

Knightcastle Permanent Registered Kennel (Canada) is committed to breed high quality black flat-coated retrievers for obedience, hunting, show, agility and of course for family and companion dogs. We also have 'therapy' and 'search and rescue' dogs, making the flat-coated retriever the perfect multi-purpose dog. Currently planning our fourth generation, you can find our dogs all across Canada, USA and Bermuda.

My dogs are part of my life and are living in the house with me, no kennel. I live in a hobby farm with lots of recreational land around it. I train and handle my dogs myself for the obedience, for the show ring and also for field events. All my dogs made their Championships in the 'Bred by exhibitor' class, handling them myself. I am also a CKC carrying judge for hunt tests and working certificates for retrievers.
My current dogs are my veterans Holly and Forrest and my youngsters Blanche and Cosette. Hopper and Lilly are also part of my breeding program but don't live with me. They are very active dogs and are in excellent health. I am not pushing them with over-training and retire them at a young age from competition so they can enjoy life.

The Flat-Coated Retriever (FCR) was developed in England in the mid-1800's. It's a very popular hunting dog in Europe, but almost unknown here in North America. It has maintained its reputation as dual-purpose retriever over the years and Knightcastle is always keeping that in mind. The flat-coated retriever is the perfect dog to have outside or in the house, playing with you or with children. It is a devoted family companion, a versatile working dog, outgoing and it won't let you down.

The FCR is a bright, active dog of medium size with an intelligent expression, showing power without lumber, and raciness without weediness. Generously endowed with natural gundog ability, optimism and friendliness demonstrated by enthusiastic tail action. It's nickname in UK: Peter Pan!

By contract, Knightcastle is not giving any breeding rights to anyone.


Commitment to the breed

Each litter is carefully planned considering the quality, health clearances, the pedigree and also the accomplishments of the dogs involved. Knightcastle is not breeding for one specific goal or purpose and has a litter on the ground mainly to fulfill its own requirement, not to accommodate the demands.
