SALLY KEMPTON - Sally will be looking after Southern Area - email ifr[email protected]
My name is Sally Kempton and I am based in Sevenoaks in Kent. I have owned flatcoated retrievers since 1984. My first flatcoat was a bitch who was home bred by a friend who now has one of my puppies. My second flatcoat two years later was a rehomer who came to me aged two, because his owner broke both her wrists being dragged on a lead walk when he saw another dog. He was a challenging dog for the whole of his 15 years of life.
I learned a lot about the breed from his antics. I now have three bitches and one dog and am an inspected (twice) Assured Breeder although due to work commitments I was unable to have a second litter as my bitch is now too old.
I have been rehoming dogs for 20 years and flatcoats, in particular. I mentor first time owners and first-time breeders of flatcoats where their breeder or stud dog owner is not available. I am also an admin for Pedigree Flatcoat and Friends which is a mentor group on Facebook.
