The Wyndham-Wyndhamian Flat Coated Retrievers are a private hobby kennel of hunting dogs established by Ed Atkins as a 10 year old boy in 1953. The goal from the beginning was to produce healthy, easy to train calm flatcoats with focus capable of hard work for 12 or more seasons. The kennel works its dogs in the very game rich Dakota prairie country. The dogs working from blinds for
Breeding is taken very seriously with no effort spared to acquire the very best stock and all litters are born in Mr. Atkins home, where the pups are handled daily and nurtured to bond with humans. Early puppy training in the nest begins with the come command on a whistle associated with the delivery of food during the weaning process. Early retrieving is introduced at about 6 weeks of age. All puppies will retrieve to hand before being ready to leave for new homes at 8 weeks old. Those puppies kept in the home kennel are nurtured to work with humans. When they reach the fastest learning period in their development they are very carefully taught to take a line, angle lines and respond to direction signals prior to three months of age without any force or correction. More important than the skills the pups learn to trust the human and be rewarded for following instructions.
The success of this program is clearly indicated by the facts. The first flatcoat female to place in an all age field trial in

Those sportsmen wishing the very best breeding and rearing for a hunting Flat Coated Retriever should contact Ed Atkins by phone or email. Puppies may be reserved by approved and suitable buyers with a 50% none refundable deposit/down payment.
