Traditional working companions
Members of our family
Welcome to Glasybont Gundogs, run by Zoe Price with support from her husband Richard.
We started our journey with Gundogs in the early 1990's with Cocker Spaniels. This soon expanded to include German Short Haired pointers (GSP's) and then Labrador retrievers.
We strive to improved the standard of the breeds through selective breeding to erradicate genetic conditions and improve the health of the dogs and the characteristics of the breeds. We are council inspected and a registered breeding center.
Focussing 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 a globally recognised expert in DNA technologies and works with National and European Veterinary institutes to further the use of DNA innovations.
Richard is an accomplanished 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 occassions 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 prestigous 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 evenning by the fire.
Richard 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.
