Welcome to Tekuri Kennels where we have been looking good in the field since 1995 (well the dogs have at least). It all started one evening when I met Dave Murray to see if he could train my seven year old Labrador Kylie, I was 14 years old at the time, it didn’t take long for Dave to work out that Kylie was in the old dogs and new tricks category. Dave put me on to a friend of his who had a puppy for sale and offered me training advice and introduced me to gundog trialling. This pup I called Jonah. Jonah and I learnt a lot about trialling and I learned a lot about training but he never made the grade. In 1997 I purchased my first Sandford Labrador Kea in partnership with Angela Murray. Kea become one of the most influential things in a very important stage of my life the success I had with her in trialling hooked me for life and Angela making her up to show champion lit the fire in my belly that still burns today, “Dual Purpose Labradors”. Visit Keas page “Tribute To Kea” to learn more about her illustrious career and the friendship we shared. I spent a lot of time learning about Labrador pedigrees and breeding in my time travelling, trialling and being part of the Sandford Labradors Family. It wasn’t until 2010 I decided it was time to embark on my own breeding program and the Tekuri Kennel name was officially registered, our first litter arrived from our three legged wonder dog Whoopi soon after.
