This is the only breed we breed, as this is our passion. We have had Flat Coats since 1990 and been breeding since 1999. Home of 7 Grand Champions and 30 Australian Champions. We boast all breeds BEST IN SHOW winner, Gr Ch Flatterhaft Steal Or Borrow (imp swd), 10 BEST IN GROUP WINNERS and 13 Class in show winners. We only breed when we plan to keep something for ourselves to go on with, not to supply the puppy market, however we only keep the best one or 2 puppies for ourselves and the rest are available to the very best of pet homes or working, very occasionally to a show home. All dogs are hip/Elbow and eye tested before being bred with, and we proudly say we only breed with any one bitch 1-3 times, they then either become our pets or go to a very special home to just be happy well loved dogs. All of our breeding dogs are proven in the show ring.
We have been involved in flatcoats since 1985 - showing and retrieving. Our dogs are hip/elbow scored and have clear eye certificates. Temperament and soundness are paramount in our breeding program. We are approved breeders of the Flatcoated Retriever Assn of Vic. To increase the gene pool in Australia, we have over the years imported 2 male dogs and a bitch from the UK, and also semen from two dogs.Dogs we have bred have won challenges and Best of Breeds at Royal Shows in Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane. In December 2008 Jean gained her Licence to become a Judge for the Gundog Group, Group 3 and is also a judge for the Terrier Group 2. Our aim is to produce a healthy happy dog that will give you companionship and love. We expect to have a litter later this year 2018.
We commenced showing and breeding with golden retrievers in 1978 but have owned and shown flatcoats since 1987 after seeing our first flatcoat at a United Retriever Club show in England in 1986 where we fell in love with the breed. Our aim is to produce dual purpose dogs who have the outgoing temperament that flat coated retrievers are known for. We commenced breeding flatcoated retrievers in 2006 and have produced champions in Australia and New Zealand. Our dogs are family first, show dogs second and all enjoy participating in other dog activities.
My first Flat Coat arrived in 1984 and although Tara was not a show dog, she taught me how wonderful the temperament of this breed is.
1993 saw the arrival of Inji into my life and the introduction to the conformation and breeding world. Her first litter produced Tali, my first male. Inji and Tali (hence the kennel name) were a delight to live with and were my first two show champions.
1998 Elly (Ch Kellick Carn Of Cailiche CCD) arrived and was my foundation bitch. Her first litter produced Jy (Ch Injitali In The Black CD).
In 2004 Elly's second litter saw the arrival of Baloo (Gr Ch Injitali Intrigue CCD RN).
Baloo's first litter produced Booker who is Dual Gr Ch (TS) Dual Ch (T) Injitali Sir Bouncealot. Extremely naughty and highly intelligent. Best dog ever when I need a cuddle.
2011 saw the arrival of Baloo's second litter and I kept two pups. Seeker is now Dual Gr Ch (TS) Dual Ch (T) Injitali Intriguing Secret. Tiger is Dual Gr Ch (TS) Dual Ch (T) Intriguing Tale.
2017 Seeker produced Lani (Ch Injitali Treasure Seeker). I call Lani "The Apprentice" as she delights in copying and watching Uncle Booker's clever and naughty antics.
3 Dual Grand Champions was not something I thought I would ever do when I first started with Flat Coats. So proud of them all.
******SPECIAL NOTICE******* While I appreciate the interest people have shown in my dogs, I would like to let you know that I cannot take anymore enquiries about any upcoming litters I may be planning. ************

Kellick is the oldest Flat Coated Retriever breeding kennel in Australia & New Zealand; we have owned Flat Coated Retrievers since 1975 owning 2 of the foundation stock one from England & the other from New Zealand.
Kellick has had a number of imported dogs over the life of the kennel from New Zealand, England, Scotland and, 3 males from Sweden. Further more recently imported frozen semen from working lines in Finland. Importation is required to refresh the kennels gene pool and keep it healthy. All breeding stock is health checked suitable for breeding. Puppies available occasionally.
Our dogs are active in the hobby of Retrieving Trialing. As the breed is a Gun dog and was originally bred for retrieving game when man lived off the land. Here at Kellick we continue to stimulate this instinct in our dogs by competing in Retrieving trials of which is an assimilation of duck shoot using dead pigeons as the game. Our dogs enjoy this hobby as it is in their blueprint to retrieve.
Kiwiline Flat Coated Retrievers is based on a small lifestyle block in South Auckland, New Zealand and was born from the desire to provide families with healthy pets true to the happy go lucky Flat Coated Retriever breed type.
We are incredibly lucky to have been gifted with four lovely dogs bred by Judy Kennon-Wray, Peter Kennon and Jazmyn Wray of Bushman Kennels in Melbourne Victoria as our foundation dogs/ pets/ family members. I will forever appreciate the time, effort and love that went into producing these dogs and the friendships I received along with them. Judy and Peter Kennon, her father, are forever in my heart.
In nine years of showing we have been awarded multiple Class in Groups, Class in Show, Reserve in Group and Best in Group awards along with Best and Reserve in Specialty and Reserve in Show All Breeds but at the end of the day, our dogs are dogs. They run on our acreage, play in the mud, chase birds and retrieve rabbits. Their soundness and temperament are as Flat Coat as they can be thanks to their careful breeding.
WE will ONLY ever breed when we believe the time is right for another to join our family and that the mating will improve the breed, not to fill orders. We are more than happy to discuss the breed at any time but currently have no litters planned.
All of our dogs have clear eye certificates and better than average hip and elbow scores for Flat Coats.
I have Shown on and off for over 40 years. I ventured into Flat Coated Retrievers in 2012 - My dogs are Happy Healthy Beautiful Quality dogs who show all the traits of this lovely breed. A breed that loves to have fun teamed with exceptional looks.
Mine are happy to run themselves silly and if you add water even better - they are not full time lounge dogs. A smart breed that loves to please - so well suited to training - and a must - if you are considering a flat coat.
All Registered Flat Coated Retrievers have to be health tested for breeding - Hip Scored - Elbow Scored - Eye Checks are paramount for any breeding. All my dogs have lower than the breed average scores
My plans for a litter are on hold with Covid Restrictions in NSW. Until things such as travel and the ability to transport change, they will remain on hold. CHECK BACK 2022 FOR FURTHER UPDATES.

All our puppies are raised in the family home, come with a lifetime of support and meet all health testing requirements.
