Bayside breeding Labrador Retrievers

Master hunters, gun dogs, obedience, therapy & service dogs.

Bayside Labs  began breeding Labrador Retrievers in California and now reside in Gallatin Valley, Montana .  Bayside Champions have qualified at all levels of the hunt tests, qualified as Master National Hunters and entered into the Hall of Fame with the Master National Retriever Club. Bayside Labs also provided training and started dogs to working as gun dogs, in competitive obedience and as therapy dogs in service.


CH Canvasback Chantilly WC

Our very first Labrador puppy was purchased as a hunting dog for Les.  We had researched breeding Labrador Retrievers and selected a breeder, Canvasback Labradors, Laurie Pareto, who had produced lovely dogs with hunting ability.  CH. Canvasback Chantilly WC known as “Tilly” was shown and handled by Les Ziegler.

At her first breeding, “Tilly” produced the #1 Lab bitch (Labrador Quarterly Ratings) in the show ring that year

CH Braemar Megan of Gerhardt WC

#2 LQ System 11- 1990

Bred by Les and Deb Ziegler

 0wned by Nancy Gerhardt & handled by Ellen Cottingham

Megan produced 2 show champions


CH Bayside’s Full Artillery WC

“Reed” was a lovely mover and displayed outstanding temperament. He was athletic and very birdy.

And we bred:

We have owned Labradors bred by others and titled them to Championships in the ring (Canvasback Chantilly, WC and AM & CAN CH Keysun Rippling Wind), Master National Hall of Fame (Sawtooth’s No Foolin’ MNH) and Field Trial Champion (FC Moonstones Ignites on Impact, MH).  These dogs and our own are the backbone and foundation of our current breeding stock.
