Marsagan Labradors in partnership with Red Cypher Gundogs is very pleased to announce that they have aquired frozen semen from Millersbyre Sword at Coyletaiglum(Ben). Ben is a fox red labrador from excellent working lines.
Bobby Wilson of Coyle Gundogs in Scotland started Ben's formal training at 18 months of age and has trained him to a very high standard. He stops very sharply to the whistle, takes a blind with ease, is an excellent marker who is steady to game, a good hunter and great picking up dog.
Ben is a very athletic looking dog with a very biddable personality. He is a very honest dog who gives 100% when out in the field but has an off swich when in the kennel. He is a proven sire, throwing beautiful pups with a lovely dark fox red colour.
Due to work commitments he has only been lightly trialled but when he has competed he has come in as the winner in a novice test and twice as the winning dog in open tests. Ben is now 3 years old and is ready to go forward and compete seriously in trials.
Ben's health clearances are excellent having been DNA profiled clear for PRA, EIC, CNM, SD2, HNPK. His hip score is 4/4, elbows 0 and has a current clear eye certificate dated May 2017.

Marsagan Labradors is extremely diligent in making sure our progeny are not bred from parents that can produce puppies that are affected with inheritable diseases. To help us achieve this, we have our breeding stock DNA profiled by Orivet Genetics. Many of the diseases that present themselves in the Labrador breed are auto recessive which means that in order for the disease to be present it needs two copies of the affected gene, one from the sire and one from the dam.
The breeding outcomes shown in the diagrams below represent what are the expected outcomes (average) when mating NORMAL, CARRIER and AFFECTED animals. The outcomes are based on Mendelian genetics that states each individual has two factors for each trait, one from each parent. Some of the outcomes below may vary due to the probability of inheritance not being equal.
Labradors come in 3 basic colours. If you would like to know more about Labrador coat colours and how they are inherited click the link below...
