History of Silverbrook Kennels Fredericksburg Virginia

October 15, 2013 – 02:31 pm

Silverbrook Kennels is owned and operated by Trish Jagoda of Fredericksburg, VA. She has been training and competing with Labrador Retrievers since acquiring her first Lab, GMHR/WR Lacey J "Lacey", on April 4, 1981. Trish began working with Lacey in much the same way every novice trainer/handler does. "I knew nothing about training hunting dogs... Lacey taught me that the right dog can make a person look very good". Owing "Big Lacey" credit for the success they enjoyed together through the years, Lacey's blood is the root of Trish's competition and breeding stock to this day, 27 years later.

Trish and Lacey were invited to participate in the first ever NAHRA National Invitational Field Test For Retrievers in May of 1985 as test dog.

During the first few years of NAHRA's existence, dogs earned and accumulated points by qualifying in hunt tests throughout the calendar year. By the end of the calendar year, only the 30 dogs who had accumulated the most points were invited to participate in the annual NAHRA Invitational event. Lacey always seemed to be in those "top 30" qualifying dogs! In the second NAHRA National Invitational in 1986, Trish was the only female handler to be invited and the first to qualify a dog at the event. Since 1986, Silverbrook dogs have qualified each year to participate in the NAHRA Invitational.

Through Lacey, Silverbrook Kennels produced her daughter, GMHR/WR Southland Bomber's Black Lace, "Midgie". These girls racked up more points and titles than any other mother/daughter team in the history of the NAHRA program. In the three years between 1987 and 1989 the two had accumulated nearly 1200 points and many "All American Team" honors. At the age of 6, Midgie became one of a handful of dogs to reach the "1000 lifetime points" distinction.

In 1988, "Petey", GMHR/WR Southland Repeat Performance was born. Petey was extremely well-bred and an outstanding producer, siring dogs throughout the country. These retrieving maniacs are referred to fondly as, "Petey Pups".

Petey ran his first NAHRA Senior test in 1989 at the age of 9 months. In 1997, at 9 years old, he became Silverbrook Kennels' second "1000 lifetime points" competitor.

There is no such thing as a Silver Lab.

Terms such as "golden", "silver", "blue", "white" or "grey" as variants are not recognised. The term "Golden Labrador" has been used both as an incorrect term for yellow labradors of a golden shade,[26] and also for any Labrador-Golden Retriever crossbreed of any colour, including black.[27] White is a light shade of yellow (officially referred to as 'light cream' or 'pale yellow' in the standard),[10][28][29] and silver is either not recognised or registered as chocolate (though regarded as a major fault and not up to confirmation).[20][10] Claims that some "rare" variants exist or have been verified by DNA testing, or the like, are widely considered to be a 'scam'.[10][30]
