About Wyndance

Wyndance Labrador Retrievers is a CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) approved,  small-scale, high-quality in-home breeding program located in Thornton, Ontario, just one hour north of Metropolitan Toronto. Our email address is: .


After  31 years of owning and working with Labrador Retrievers,  I decided that it was time to live out my childhood dream of not only owning labs, but also showing and breeding them. And so, in 2016, I began this incredible journey by reaching out to longstanding reputable breeder and conformation judge Joanne Fernall at Devonsleigh Kennels ( and  purchased  Wyndance’s foundation  breeding female: GCh Devonsleigh's Black Charm  


Our plan is to selectively breed for 1- 3 litters per year and add new members to the Wyndance Labs fur family as we produce our own or source healthy, high-quality pups that qualify to expand our breeding program over time.


Please scroll down to see our breeding girls,  review their pedigrees, the health clearances that we undertake and if we have an upcoming litter that you might be interested in.


My singular goal is to produce  Labrador Retrievers, bred to the breed standard for folks who may simply wish to own a fantastic family pet and/or who may want to participate in Conformation, Obedience, Agility, Hunting or Tracking activities alongside the people that they love and who care for them.

Health Clearances

Each of our breeding/upcoming breeding dogs have or will have been tested by the DDC Veterinary DNA Technology Park in Fairfield, Ohio, receiving DNA clearances for the Labrador Retriever panel of genetic disorders.


When each of them reach two (2) years of age, we have x-rays taken and submitted to the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) to ascertain dysplasia clearances for their hips and elbows, as well as heart clearances by both auscultation and heart echocardiograms. Their eyes are cleared by a board certified canine ophthalmologist as puppies and then every 2 yrs. Only upon receiving their clearances, are the dogs put into our breeding program

 Retired from breeding in September 2021, Charm is the foundation female of Wyndance Labrador Retrievers.

Over the last 4 years, she has produced over 20+  lovely pups for us, two of which (Claire & Wynonna) are now taking on Wyndance's breeding program.


With only limited showings, Charm achieved her Conformation Championship & Grand Championship by the time she was 22 mths old She is simply one of those well behaved girls naturally, loves to play with her people/her toys and is excellent with children, other dogs and cats.


Charm comes from wonderfully accomplished multigenerational lines of Labradors in Canada (Devonsleigh) and US (Sunnydaze) including Best in Show (conformation), High In Trial (Obedience) and Retriever Trial (Field) dogs.

Sire:    GCh. Cawarra's Sharpshooter

As a baby puppy Wynonna showed great promise. She has an extraordinary face and pigmentation, lovely length of neck and overall structural balance.


In her very first show, she took Best Baby Puppy In a Limited Group 1 Show in her first outing at the Wildwood Kennel Club Show. In 2021 with limited showings, Wynonna garnered 8 points towards her Canadian Conformation Championship, had a beautiful litter of 8 pups in August and 7 pups in March, and on her first outing at the Credit Valley Dog Show on November 5th, 2023 she finished her Championship.

Sire:      GChEx. Gold Danrich On D'Run To Makatawae WC

Dam:     GCh. Wyndance's Chocolate Éclair 

Outgoing and lovely only begins to describe Claire & Colt's daughter Faith.  A handful as a young puppy, she has turned out beautifully both in structure and temperament. Wonderfully put together, with a tail that never stops wagging, Faith hit the dog show ring with the same level of enthusiasm and curiosity that she approaches everything. She was won Best Baby Puppy in Breed/Group/Show honors. As a Baby Puppy and Jr. Puppy, she amassed 7 of the 10 points necessary to achieve her Conformation Championship which has since been completed.

Important Message To Interested/Prospective Wyndance Labrador Retriever Puppy Owners:  

Wyndance lab pups are raised using Puppy Culture socialization and training methods. Before going to their new families at 8-12 weeks of age, Wyndance Labrador puppies are collar/leash oriented, can go up and down stairs, are crate trained for bedtimes ( typically 11pm-btwn 4-5 am), they can perform a sit and lay down with treats, they have bite inhibition "No Bite (nipping) training from the time they turn 3 weeks and start to get their little razor like teeth and they understand Leave It! when they pick up something that they shouldn't as well. 


When considering getting a puppy you need to have a Baby Puppy Care Plan as they can only be crated for 1 hour per month of age  before they need to be toileted and have 30-40 mins of simple playtime (that is not exercise).This is a key consideration that will need to be satisfactorily addressed in order to become an Approved To Purchase individual or family.


If you are interested in purchasing a Wyndance Labrador Retriever puppy , it is highly recommended that you place yourself on our Litter Reserved Wait List.   Simply send me a request for our Puppy Application Form via email and/or give us a call at 416-230-6920.

Breed Health Certifications/Clearances:  Wyndance Labradors are certified for hips, elbows, heart and eye health clearances as well genetic DNA clearances. At least one parent will be clear of "common to the breed" genetic diseases which in turn ensures that our pups will not be affected  by them.
