Thanks for visiting.....
As you will see from our site, our dogs are first and foremost, a part of our family. Flat-Coats are very social, affectionate dogs that need to have close ties with their human family. The breed standard describes their Character as ...."a cheerful devoted companion who requires and appreciates living with and interacting as a member of his family...."
We are members of the Flat-Coated Retriever Society of America and the Mid-Atlantic Flat-Coated Retriever Club. Our dogs enjoy competing in Conformation, Rally and Flyball. Two of our dogs are Bright & Beautiful Therapy Dogs where we volunteer for "Paws for Reading", a local library program where children read to dogs to encourage confidence and promote reading.
Please see our other pages for news,
