Traditional working companions
from the UK's Premium Labrador Specialist
Welcome to Glasybont Gundogs, run by Zoe Price with support from her husband Richard.
We specialise in breeding to the Higher Welfare standards, producing fully health screened, biddable life companions that represent the best of British breeding.
We started our journey with Gundog's in the early 1990's with Cocker Spaniels. This soon expanded to include German Short Haired pointers (GSP's) and now completely specialise in the Labrador retriever.
We strive to improved the standard of the breed through selective breeding to eradicate genetic conditions whilst improving the health of the dogs and the characteristics of the breeds. We are council inspected and a registered breeding center (Hereford licence DOG10).
Zoe is a trained canine behaviorist and an experienced trainer of companion dogs. Zoe takes pride in the home rearing of all of our puppies and preparing them for their next step in life and joining their forever homes.
Focusing on the ability to be a family member and work in the environment they are designed to do so. All of our dogs are fully health screened to include BVA and recognised DNA tests.
Richard is an accomplished handler with over 100 Kennel Club recognised awards with Labradors, HPR's and Spaniels. Richard has also competed at international level representing Wales on several occasions with retrievers.
Richard has been the Field Trial Secretary of the Worcestershire Gundog Society and Usk valley working Gundog club as well as a committee member of the Wye valley Retriever and Vice Chairman of the Usk Valley working Gundog Club.
Our dogs as well as being family members also spend a considerable amount of time in the shooting field picking up at local prestigious shoots as well as with Richard on smaller days on the peg with him. Spaniels, GSP's and Labradors can be seen working together to the highest standards and then cuddling up with the children in the evening by the fire.
Zoe has also had the pleasure of working with Dogs for Good (formerly called Dogs for Disabled) to finish 'Clydes' training to be a companion to Owain, our eldest son who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
