Ian thank you very much for making the puppy buying experience such a positive one. Nos is a lovely dog and is settling in nicely here in Frankfurt. Ian takes great care to match the breeding stock properly, not only to produce fine working dogs, but also to minimize the spread of genetic defects. The results speak for themselves. Highly recommended as a breeder and a trainer. Also a nice guy. Keep up the good work.
Drew, Iris, Duff & Nos.

Hellloooo Ian. Just clicked on here during my lunch break! Really enjoyed the nosey around. Just to update you....Jazz is doing well in her first year of working tests, I've picked up a couple of awards. I'm also looking forward to this years shoot as we both thoroughly enjoyed it last year!
Getting giddy about our iminent visit in July!! (oh no I hear you cry!!haha!) Lastly and by no means least THANK YOU so much for helping me get my foot on the working Labrador rung, I could not have done it without you guys. Thanks again, see you soon..... Jill, Ben and Jazz
well it's five days since we brought Penny home and she has made a massive difference to our lives. We absolutely adore the little lady we cannot thank you both enough she is a pleasure to have.As Labrador Retriever breeders you must be two of the best if not the best in the country so if anyone is reading this post to help make a decision wether Peniglen is the breeders they should get their Labrador from then all i would tell you is you need look no further because you will not find better any where.In my opinion Peniglen Labs are the best......John & Janice Mc Ewan......

Was great meeting up and training with you again last sunday, You had a well thought out training sesion for me to start the day with a full test set out with cold game ie. pheasant, duck rabbit dummys ect.. really testing the dog. I fully recommend anyone to have a 1 to 1 or group sesion with ian. I have come away again learning new training teqniques. Ian makes you feel so relaxed and it is such an enjoyable day. Can not wait until 4 of us are going back in sept for a long weekend training with a test on the sun before we leave. Can not recommend him enough thx again Ian....
Hi Ian just to say thank's alot for everything, we have named our wonderful puppy Boss, he has fitted straight into our family and we all love him to bits. He was worth the 420 mile trip [twice]and I am sure we will be calling in again sometime soon, all the advice you have given us over the phone and in person has given me full confidence that we have chosen a reputable breeder. All the best for Christmas & Happy New Year to all at Peniglen
Best Regards Dan Mcgowan

We used Boss as a Sire 2 and a half years ago. We had 7 pups. I regularly see 3 of them and am in contact with three of the rest. They are all VERY fit, friendly, great temperaments and lovely looking Labs. Ian was extreemly helpful before and after. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Both my current dogs are from Peniglen. Whenever I am out they get admiring comments both as to their work and to their appearance. I wish that I could take just some of the credit but it is all down to the exceptional breeding programme that Peniglen is establishing at their kennels. Their deepseated belief that there are no short cuts in breeding excellent dogs sets an example that I only wish others would follow. Whenever anyone asks me where I got them I have no hesitation in telling them and talking to them about how both Ian and Tracey take such an ongoing interest in the dogs they breed and are always as helpfull as they can be in putting me right in all the mistakes that I am sure that I am making. Excellent website - keep up the good work..

Hi Ian Just to let you know that both Malcolm and myself absolutely adore Libby. She is highly intelligent and a true natural, born with the best of gun dog hunting skills. She has settled very well into life in Norfolk and we have had some wonderful comments from people.

without doubt, the highest standard of breeding procedure, regarding the mating of my working bitch-Dutch by Boss, the pups were of the highest quality! best luck for the future....regards lee.

We have now had Archie (Peniglen Forrester) for just over 12 months. He was one of Jets first litter. Archie is turning out to be just about perfect. He has a wonderful temprement, especially with the children, and in that respect he is a fantastic family pet. In the working field, he continues to learn and is as keen as me to be a successful working dog. His ability to retrieve is very impressive, whatever the ground maybe. Thanks to you both for all your wonderful help and advice which has helped me get the very best out of Archie.
