Quality Retrievers for the show ring, the field and home for 40+ years!
Gladrags have been breeding quality curly coated retrievers for over forty years, together they have produced top winners for many top kennels both here in the UK and around the globe, as such their bloodlines can be found in most of the kennels breeding today.
The curly coated retriever is the tallest and heaviest of all the retriever family, it is recognized by its distinctive coat of crisp tight curls and comes in just two colours, liver or black.
The curly coated retriever is a slow maturing breed, it responds well to all forms of training and makes a protective guard with its very deep bark, A kind temperament makes them excellent with children and other dogs, often aloof with a stranger, but a loyal and biddable companion as a pet.
All stock is hip scored and micro-chipped. Dogs are at stud to approved bitches, which must be hip scored and approved.
Well bred puppies are occasionally available to approved homes, please see our litterbox page for current details.

Over the past 23 years they have been Top Breeders 21 times… Thank You to everyone for their help in making this possible.
