Both Marc and Marisa grew
up with dogs. We have been in Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers
since 2000 and Labrador Retrievers since 2005. Marisa is a past Vice President of the NSDTRC of Canada (2007/2008), past Secretary of the NSDTRC of Canada (2005/2006)
and past Central Ontario director for the Ontario Toller Club (2003/2004).
Marc is a working certificate and hunt test judge.
Farley Kennels is dedicated
to the whole dog. We aim for sound structure, optimum health,
excellent temperament, and exceptional talent. We are commited
to maintaining the breed as a working retriever and a cherished
member of the family.
Our dogs are pets first
but we also actively compete in field, obedience, rally-O and conformation. All of our
dogs have been to obedience classes so that they can be good
We feed all our dogs the
raw diet and follow a limited vaccine protocol. Our dogs also
have at least a yearly check-up with a vet. In regards to
breeding and health, our dogs have their hips checked for
hip dysplasia, hearts certified by a cardiologist, and eyes
checked yearly and certified by CERF. We are also doing genetic
testing as more tests become available (PRA, CEA/CH, CNM).
