My husband Richard and I (Sussie) have been involved with Labradors
since the 1960's & 1970's but it was in 1987 that The Richbourne Kennel was founded. 

We live in the country north west of London and are lucky enough to have
plenty of space for lots of lovely Labradors (and children, cows, horses, cats and chickens)!  Fortunately our children Bonnie and Mark are also very keen on helping with the dogs.

Being very keen on Labrador history we are most aware that we are only guardians
of our lovely breed for a very short time and our aim has always been
to try and maintain true Labrador type with much emphasis put on sound
temperament and a willing to please attitude.

We have bred both UK and International Champions.

Both Richard and I are privileged to judge Labradors at Championship show
level and have been fortunate enough to officiate all over Europe,
North and South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. 
The highlight of Richard's judging career was undoubtedly when he had
the great honour of judging Labrador males at Crufts in 2004
and his CC winner went on to win the Gundog group.    

I am currently the secretary of The Yellow Labrador Club
and The Labrador Breed Council which I see as a great honour
and an opportunity to give a little back to the breed which has given us so much pleasure.
