Riverggins Home



Riverggins is a family business, owned and run by husband and wife team James and Katie Harding. Nestled in the North Norfolk countryside, a mere 20 minutes west of Sandringham. We specialise in providing exceptional Labrador puppies, partially and fully trained dogs, as well as exclusive placements for guest dogs who live and train with our team of proficient working dogs.







Please be aware that our Residential Training and Training Holidays fill up quickly, often booking up six months in advance. To prevent any disappointment, we encourage you to discuss your preferred dates with us at your earliest convenience.

Residential Training 

Register your dog for personalised training, perfect for family pets or dogs looking to engage in shooting sports looking to improve on their skills.

Stud Dogs

At Riverggins, we provide fully health-tested stud dogs. All our stud dogs have undergone DNA testing and are clear of the seven DNA tests mandated by the Kennel Club. We are also pleased to announce that two of our stud dogs boast perfect health scores:

Poirot - Black Lab
Doug - Fox Red Lab

Both have 0/0 Hips & 0/0 Elbows scores and possess a current BVA eye certificate.

DNA Test Results:


We offer superbly bred Labrador puppies starting from 9 weeks of age.


We hold a Five Star Breeding Licence and we very much encourage new propective owners to come and meet us, the dogs and to look around our facilities.


Picking up Apprentice

Bookings are now open for the upcoming season's picking-up team apprenticeships.

We are looking for apprentices to join our picking-up team for the shooting season from October to January. The program is ideal for young, inexperienced dogs, as well as older dogs looking for shoot day experiences, which include game retrieval in partnership with the Riverggins team, complemented by customized training between shoots.

Participating in shoot days is vital for the growth of young working dogs, offering them the opportunity to engage with the shooting environment, familiarize themselves with novel sounds, and manage their excitement while working alongside or observing experienced dogs.

*Note that your dog must meet the required training standards to take part in this experience. Should they not meet these criteria, we encourage you to explore pre-season training opportunities with us.
