History of Sailin

 

I have been in labs for over 30 years. Our first lab was a black male who we called Skipper. He was born in 1974. His registered name was Stars Sailerman of Seasac. Originally, we bought Skipper to be my husbands hunting dog and a companion dog for our family. However, because he was such a nice looking, compact dog, the breeder who we bought him from encouraged us to show him in the Breed Ring. We took him to a very large Labrador Specialty show in southern California when he was only 10 months old. He won a five point major at the specialty!! Needless to say we were very surprised and excited!! We continued to show Skipper in the Breed Ring and he won his championship with 3 five point majors. He also earned a Companion Dog title in the Obedience Ring. In addition, he was a great pheasant hunter and a great dog in general! Skipper was our foundation male.

We decided that we loved Skipper, and labs, so much, and were having such success with Skipper, that we would try purchasing a very nice female from a well known breeder. We bought Eylsium's Sailin Cat Ballou. She was a beautiful yellow female. We also showed "Kit" (Eysium's Sailin Cat Ballou) in the Breed Ring. She won her championship easily. She wound up being one of the top producing females of her time. We bred Skipper to Kit and wound up with some very nice, beautiful, smart, competitive labs. Now we were in the lab business, and enjoying every minute of it!!

Since then, I have bred many, many top winning Labradors and have helped many people start their own Kennel and breeding program. I love the Labrador Retriever and all that they have to offer.

All of our puppies are born in our house and raised in our house until they go to their new home. They receive lots and lots of love and socialization from us and our grandchildren. We breed for beautiful, smart, and very loving labs. We have yellows, blacks, and chocolates. We continue to show our labs in the Breed Ring and train them for obedience and hunting. It is our desire, above all else (ie; whether or not they are going to compete for a title), that they are loved, enjoyed, and appreciated by the family they live with and are an integral part of the family.
