About Twilight Retrievers - AKC English Labs
Twilight Retrievers is a professionally operated kennel that specializes in well-bred Labrador Retrievers from domestic and international bloodlines. Our retrievers blend nicely in family settings; they perform to perfection in the show ring and make loyal companions in the field. Twilight Retrievers is owned and operated by Wm. Hunter Bryant. Hunter has been involved with retrievers in one form or another practically his entire life. Hunter has a strong knowledge of the breed in general, but more importantly, he is adept at matching just the right retriever with the appropriate situation. Twilight Retrievers is in constant contact with breeders around the world, and has spared no expense in obtaining the best bloodlines possible. Most of our bloodlines come from retrievers that have either been imported into the United States directly, or are bred in other countries and whelped (born) in the US. Our lines originate from countries such as Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, Finland, Holland, Australia and England. "Bench" or "English" type retrievers (dogs that are bred to compete in conformation shows sanctioned by AKC) have strong champion lines. As a rule, retrievers bred in this category should still maintain an incredible stamina, a strong desire to hunt and natural retrieving instincts. Sportsmen seeking a hunting partner might wish to consider a Twilight Retriever.
