Welcome to Shalyn Retrievers

Pictured above are Jazmine with her son Blue and daughter Belle in the 2015 National Specialty brood bitch class.

Shalyn Retrievers is a small, performance oriented kennel located in Smithfield, Virginia. My goal is to produce healthy sound Flat Coat Retrievers that excel in breed type, temperament, structure, and soundness in addition to possessing trainability, intelligence and suitability as good family companions.

I started showing Labrador Retrievers in 1985 and Flat Coated Retrievers in 2000 and actively compete with my retrievers in conformation, obedience, agility and hunt tests. I have owner handled all of my dogs to their Championships, Best of Breed wins and Group placements. I am a member of the Capital Region Flat Coated Retriever Club and the Flat Coated Retriever Society of America.

I only breed one litter every few years with the objective to produce pups that excel in conformation and performance. My goal is to improve the breed and to continue my own breeding program with outstanding retrievers that are true representatives of the breed standard. I have puppies available at these times to appropriately screened and approved homes. I stress the importance of health and screen all of my dogs for health clearances (hips, eyes, elbows, patellas and cardiac) prior to breeding. Puppies are raised in my home and are exposed and socialized at an early age. I only keep a few retrievers to train, show and occasionally raise a litter.

My relationship with the puppy owner does not end when the puppy goes to its new home, it is an ongoing relationship for the pups entire life and I am available to offer support, encouragement and advice.
