FUTURE FLATCOAT BREEDING PLANS
Wyndham – Wyndhamian Retrievers Since 1953
(Quality Working Retrievers Carefully Bred and Nurtured to Hunt by a Life Long Hunter)
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 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
Because the current shooting team in the home kennel has only two younger animals under the age of 6 years the plan is to breed three litters over the next 18 months or so. All three will be out of females proven in the field, cleared for soundness through the kennels extensive x-raying and eye exams, and demonstrated ability well above the average for work on land and water as well as good breed type and looks.
