Our Breeding Program
Since commencing breeding, our program has been based on a careful blend of English and Australian bloodlines. Our foundation bitch Lindhills Khoylah (1963) was a Grandaughter of Eng.Ch.Sandylands Tweed of Blaircourt and in the early years well known bloodlines such as Sandylands,Zelstone,Landyke, Mallardhurn, Diant, Kinley, Knaith and Poolstead could be found in our pedigrees.
After having had the benefit of using dogs imported by other breeders, in 1985 we imported our first English dog. On a visit to Marjorie Satterthwaite at Lawnwood Kennels, Elizabeth fell in love with a chocolate puppy who was rolling around in the snow. 12 months later after much persuasion, Lawnwoods Kapitan arrived in Quarantine. He quickly gained his Championship and was to have a great influence on the quality of chocolates in Australia.

All of these dogs have played a significant role in our breeding program and combined with our home bred bitches we have continued to produce type, soundness and excellent temperaments.
