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 Canada and light geese, sandhill cranes, and many species of duck on the fields and prairie potholes and along the Missouri and James rivers. For upland hunting the dogs are worked on pheasants, sharptailed grouse and partridge. The seasons open with early Canada Goose and doves in late August or early September and continue into early January. Teams of this kennels dogs are out almost daily. Current members of the kennel include imported dogs from the finest work proven stock and home bred flatcoats representing up to 17 generations of Wyndham-Wyndhamian selection, ownership and breeding.

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 North America was imported by this program, the second female to place in an all age FT stake in NA was co-bred by Mr. Atkins. A Licensed FT Derby stake winner was bred here. The first two flatcoat Master Hunter animals were out of a Wyndham N. litter bitch and another from this N. litter was mother of the only flatcoat to attain Amateur FT Champion status in USA or qualify for the National Amateur stake. Two flatcoats exported to Europe won A Trial Open Field Trial Stakes and a Wyndham bitch produced a Dual Ch (Field Trial and Show). While the field titles and many show champions are nice, the emphasis is to produce quality working gundogs that are also delightful to live with. Health, soundness, durability, trainable temperaments and longevity will always be this programs priorities.
