Breeding Trieven Sungold Kennels Future Champions

At Trieven Sungold Kennels our dogs have been exposed to birds and hunting from our first Labrador. This allows us to choose only the best for our breeding program. We have a 40 year history of breeding Field Champions that are also great working gun dogs. A number of our Field Champions are also pointing Labs. No other breeder has our history of breeding quality field Labradors that show consistent pointing ability.

Many Labradors are bred strictly as non-slip retrievers. They are not bred, nor selected for their ability to get out in front of the hunter and find the birds.

Breeding Eager Upland Hunters and Cold Water Retrievers 

We are concentrating on what the breed was developed for in this country: tireless, eager upland hunters and cold water retrievers. We don’t want a dog that is worn out after an hour in the field. Our Labs hunt all season long for both upland birds and waterfowl. They have been proven in competition and now excel as working gundogs and family companions. Our dogs are winners in the hunting field, where it really counts!  We concentrate on Labradors that can sit in a duck blind, pick up your ducks, and then go pheasant or chukar hunting the next day, and do you proud.

The fact that most of our Labradors also point naturally on upland birds is the icing on the cake! They hunt hard, take on the tough cover, stick with it, and range a bit farther at times, as they will hold a point for us to get near and get ready. Then watch out, because here comes the bird! As should be in all true Labradors, the retrieve is in their genes. They will find where the birds are, point and/or flush, and retrieve the strongest cripple. 

Why not go to the Trieven Breeding Source?

We are proud to show you the pedigree and history on our pups. Most go back 6-14 generations to our outstanding Trieven Labradors. Do you want a Labrador retriever to actually HUNT birds for you? Get a pup from a line known for their hunting instinct, quartering ability, natural point and flushing characteristics, retrieving ability and love of water.

Many kennels and breeders who are breeding for Labradors that point naturally have and are using Trieven bloodlines. Check the pedigrees, nearly ALL go back to Trieven blood.

Tiger Mountain’s program includes quite a bit of TWIST blood. If you go to their website, the dogs LUKE and WHITEFOOT are direct offspring of Twist, and a strong influence in their bloodline.

Black Forest, another excellent kennel, has GMPR GUMBO OF BLACK FOREST and GMPR CAJUN OF BLACK FOREST, both bred by Trieven Kennels.

TWIST & SHOUT was a strong influence in many pointing Lab programs, as are AFC TRIEVEN CLASSICAL JAZZ MH (sire of FC/AFC JAZZTIME) and FC/AFC TRIEVEN THUNDERHEAD.

FC/AFC/CFC Trieven Thunderhead, our foundation sire, had 37 Derby Points, won two Qualifying stakes by 20 months, placed in two Amateur All Age stakes, and Jammed an Open by 23 months.  He sired many natural pointing Labradors, some of the best we have ever seen.  

Our 1st natural pointing Labrador was Double Header winner FC-AFC Trieven Classic, born in 1971. She was also a great duck dog, and dam of AFC Trieven Classical Jazz, MH,  who was the sire of FC-AFC Jazztime, and grandsire of AFC Trieven Twist and Shout, MH. Twist’s dam is a full sister to Hall of Fame Retriever, FC-AFC-CNFC Jalvay’s Sweet Sharmain.
