About Us

Welcome to Rickway Kennels located in friendly Manitoba.

Rickway Kennels has had many excellent opportunities to add to and enhance the original dogs that had been purchased from Australia and the UK.

Rickway Kennels strives for the complete Labrador, not attempting to overemphasize type over movement or temperament. Rickways foundation stock are founded on some of the finest old British lines available today.

Rickways accomplishments are substantial, varied and continuing. Rickway puppies have won Nationals, and repeatedly through their offspring both in Canada and the US, continue to produce Best in Show Winners, both of All Breed and Specialties, High in Trial Obedience winners, and dogs competing in and earning hunting titles.

I have recently attained the distinction of “Master Breeder“. This is the culmination of over 50 years of breeding and showing 4 different breeds. As there are relatively few of these awards being attained throughout Canada, it is symbolic of a lifetime of dedication to purebred dogs. Structure and movement and adherence to the CKC breed standard is a major focus in all of my breeding programs.

I am currently a licensed Canadian Kennel Club judge for Group 1 (Sporting), Group 3 (Working), Group 5 (Toys) and the first 1/2 Group 7 (Herding) and am now on permit for the second half of the group.

Please look around and I hope you enjoy your stay. I welcome any comments or suggestions you have regarding our site.
