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


Picking up Apprentice

We are now accepting bookings for next season's picking-up team apprenticeships. 

For the forthcoming shooting season, spanning October through January, we seek apprentices for picking-up duties. This opportunity is designed for young, inexperienced dogs, as well as older dogs seeking shoot day experiences, involving game retrieval, in collaboration with the Riverggins team and tailored training in between shoots.

Shoot day experiences are crucial for the development of young working dogs, providing them with the chance to immerse in the shoot environment, acquaint themselves with new sounds, and learn to regulate their excitement while working with or observing seasoned dogs.

*Please be aware that your dog must meet the necessary training standards to participate in this experience. If they do not, we invite you to discuss pre-season training options with us.
