Since 1976 retrievers have been members of our family. 1989 my kennel became registered under the prefix Cadonau´s. In the breeding we started with a dog, Int. CH D.CH VDH.CH Musicman of Fisherman´s Mascot. In 1990 we got our first labrador bitch, D.CH Olivia of Fisherman´s Mascot. Our A-litter was born in March 1993.
As I visited friends, who had an one week old litter, in Sweden in June 1995 I just fell in love with a female chocolate puppy. I could see the puppies once or twice a week and the more I saw them, the more convinced I was about "my" puppy. It also was a hard battle to convince the breeder (Monica Jarl) not to keep it. But it succeeded and as we went back to Germany in September Seabirds Yummy Chocolate Pudding , called Selma joined us.
As Selma had her first litter, her daughter CH. Cadonau´s Elvira Madigan, a very successful bitch, went back to Seabirds kennel.
In June 2001 we kept the black bitch Cadonau's Hiawatha, called Tilda. Seabirds Made in Sweden (Svea) a daughter of CH. Cadonau's Elvira Madigan (Ellen) came to us in September 2002.
We have a small breeding of black and chocolate labradors, usually having one litter a year. Our aim is to breed healty, typical looking labradors with a good temperament and will to please. Our dogs are examined on hips, elbows and eyes. We are breeding in the Labrador Club Deutschland (VDH and FCI). Our labradors are full members of the family and live with us in the house.
