Bornefield is a small selective kennel.

We originally fell in love with labradors after we purchased a lovely black labrador puppy (Buddy). He brought so much joy into ours lives that we decided to extend our family with a little yellow girl who we could also show. We searched and eventually found Summer. Her show career started off with a boom. Everyone that saw her loved her. She has an amazing, loving and playful nature. And that was it - we were hooked.

Our aim as breeders is not only to produce labradors of good type and soundness but also they must have temperaments to match. All of our puppies are raised in our home with our children and older dogs and have subsequently given their families all that Buddy has given us. We have puppies who have gone on to be show dogs, gundogs, epilepsy assist dogs and very cherished family pets. Summer has also done TV and Magazine adverts and has made quite a name for herself.

Our bitches are selectively bred and we do not believe in breeding from our bitches without a purpose in mind. Therefore our bitches have a limited amount of litters so they can enjoy a carefree lifestyle here at Bornefield as cherished family companions and show dogs.

I am a qualified vet nurse with many years of experience in the animal welfare and animal care fields. Our daughter Ashlee, who is 14 years old, is currently competing in the Young New Zealand Kennel Club and regularly shows most of our labradors at championship shows. Ashlee shows other breeds including Old English Sheepdogs and Siberian Huskys. Ashlee won Child Handler of the Year in 2006 for The Labrador Club. And has gone on to win Junior Handler at both 2008 and 2009 Labrador Champ Shows.
