Millerdan dogs are pets with hobbies and have fun in the show-ring, in the shooting field and at home!
Our dogs are definately "fit for function, fit for life"
I am married to Steve, and we both grew up with dogs in our families and were both involved in the looking after of them as children. As a teenager I used to have several dog-walking jobs for people in the area, taking their dogs out for hours on end after school and at a weekends, inbetween 'working' at a friends stable.
After losing our old girl in 2005 we decided to get our very own labrador (having both had them at some point in the family) and Danny arrived in January 2006. He was our first and very special labrador and without him Millerdan would have never existed. Danny turned our lives upside down and we became hooked on this loyal and loving breed.
We work hard with our dogs to ensure they enjoy life, although I refer to us as a kennel, they all live in the house with us, this ensures that they remain very much part of the family. I adore all my dogs and love spending time with them, whether that be in the show-ring, out in the field or curled up in front of the TV! They each have their own individual characters and bring so much joy into our lives.
I am a member of several clubs, including: The Labrador Retriever Club, The Yellow Labrador Club, Three Ridings Labrador Club, Midland Counties Labrador Retriever Club, Kent Surrey and Sussex Labrador Retriever Club, Northumberland & Durham Labrador Retriever Club, East Anglian Labrador Retriever Club, Dukeries (Notts) Gundog Club, and the United Retriever Club.
In 2010 I started judging and have undertaken numerous Open Show appointments judging labradors and I am on the Labrador Breed Specialist 'B' list. Although I love being in the show-ring as an exhibitor I also like judging and I have successfully completed a Breed Specific Judging Seminar in Labradors, and achieved certificates in the KC Hand-On Assessment and the KC Requirements of a Dog Show Judge.
