Sorrel & Sons

Kelsmere Curly Coated Retrievers

The Kelsmere affix was first registered at the Kennel Club in 1970 and was the home of our successful kennel of American Cocker Spaniels, with seven Show Champions in the UK, 22 dogs in the Stud Book and Numerous winners overseas.
In the mid 1980's our first curly coated retriever joined us from Mrs Phil Beardsworth's Roydina kennel. 'Lottie' was to become our first Show Champion Curly SH CH ROYDINA CATRIONA AT KELSMERE. She was later joined by CORRITANI AT KELSMERE sired by Sh Ch Roydina Cassanova. And from these our kennel has gone from strength to strength.

Our most influential dog has been and still is 'Sorrel' SH CH OAKLEIGH OBERON AT KELSMERE, not only is he a wonderful dog to live with and a super show dog he is a great sire of top quality offspring. Truly a dog in a lifetime.

The curly is the biggest and heaviest of all retrievers and has either a liver or black coloured distinctive coat of crisp tight curls, which is easily cared for.

It is a slow maturing breed, responding well to training and makes a good guard with a very deep bark. Their temperament makes them excellent with children and other dogs, being often 'stand offish' and aloof with strangers, however they make loyal and biddable companions and pets.

They love human company and will do as little or as much as you require.

Our aim is to produce the all round curly where good looks and temperament go hand in hand. Dogs and bitches of our breeding compete in the show ring, with agility, obedience, heelwork to music and as gun dogs and most of all are loyal pets.

We have winning stock in Australia, Sweden, Holland, Germany, Finland, Norway, the USA and the UK. All our stock is hip scored, eye checked, DNA profiled and are micro chipped or tattooed. Dogs are at stud to approved bitches, which must be hip scored.

Well bred puppies are occasionally available to approved homes.

Both David and Margaret award CC's in American Cocker Spaniels and Curly Coated Retrievers.

Visitors are welcome, by appointment, to come and meet our dogs.
