Marsagan Labradors is a family business that started out in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2003. We emigrated to Australia in 2015 and are now based in Karalee, Queensland. Sam, Donna and Xena (Milie's daughter) made the trip across the waters to join us. Our dogs are treated as family members. They are not kennelled but free to wander around our house or roam around outside on our one acre plot. They enjoy daily countryside walks and chasing a ball is never far from their thoughts!
Bred from champion pedigrees, our Labrador Retrievers all hold clear eye certificates and have excellent hip and elbow scores. Our dogs are all tested for Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) & for centronuclear myopathy (CNM). Marsagan dogs are also DNA profiled by Orivet Genetics for inheritable diseases. Riley, Forres and Ben(frozen semen), our stud dogs, have outstanding pedigrees and are available for stud duties to approved bitches.
While some of our puppies go on to be professional gundogs, most of them go as family pets. They are born in the household and kept indoors until they are about 4 weeks old. We give them up when they are weaned at 8 weeks of age, by which time they have been microchipped, primo-vaccinated and dewormed and registered with Dogs Queensland.
Marsagan Labradors lean towards the breeding of working line labradors as opposed to Show line labradors. With our recent relocation from Scotland to Queensland it will take time to establish our working line again. However with the new arrivals scheduled in March and August 2017, Marsagan labradors hopes to develop excellent working line prodgeny.
