What is a pure-bred dog? A pure-bred dog is by definition one that has been produced from the mating between a dog and a bitch from the same registered breed. Therefore, in Canada, each puppy is registered with the Canadian Kennel Club and if you’re outside Canada, you’ll be able to register your new puppy in the country you live in. Buying a pure-bred dog also means that the breeder keeps records of ancestors (pedigree) and is also by law, committed to give a warranty. Any dog you buy without a certificate from the Canadian Kennel Club is by all mean a mix (a mutt) and the term 'pure-bred' cannot be applied, even if the breeder says so.
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. In each breedings, Knightcastle is also looking for good temperament, type and soundness, dogs with good working abilities and outgoing personalities, we do not breed for one specific goal or purpose. Currently planning our fourth generation, you can find our dogs all across Canada, USA and Bermuda.
In December 2015, the Canadian Kennel Club recognized Knightcastle's hard work and commitment to the breed and granted Knightcastle the status of 'Permanent Registration of a Kennel Name'. Each litter is carefully planned considering the quality, health clearances (OFA), the pedigree and also the accomplishments of both the Sire and the Dam. We have a litter on the ground only from time to time, mainly to fulfill our own requirement, not to accommodate the demands.
