Old Averest - a beautiful place in Holland

Welcome to Old Averest Labradors. I have had dogs around us since I was born. I was brought up with dachshounds, shepherds and terriers. I started training the shepherds and learnt a lot about dogs.

Old Averest was founded in 1998 with a black Labrador Lodewijk. The character and will to please of the Labrador really inspired me and so became my great love. Nowadays we are all greatly interested and involved in the wonderful Labrador world. I stopped working, said goodbye to the business so that I could concentrate on dogs, especially Labradors. The main goal of my kennel, Old Averest Labradors, is to produce healthy, intelligent and sound Labradors. Our labs are entered for shows and take part in obedience- and gundog trials. We firmly believe in the all purpose Labrador who is confident in the home, field, water or show ring.Old Averest is located in the north-east of Holland, and is surrounded by fields and forests. Our labs play and train in the local fields and streams.We guarantee the health of the parents of each litter. We are small hobby breeders who treat our Labradors as our friends and companions.
Our goal is to improve the Labrador breed, to breed dogs with good looks, good health, super temperament, sound and willing to please, and to share them with other people.The above is a brief resumé of my small kennel, where quality and select breeding is my first consideration.Hope you enjoy your visit to our site.

SEARCH FOR THE HERO

Sometimes the river flows but nothing breathes
A train arrives but never leaves
It's a shame
Oh life like love that walks out of the door
Of being rich or being poor
Such a shame
But it's then, then that faith arrives
To make you feel at least alive
And that's why you should keep on aiming high
Just seek yourself and you will shine

You've got to search for the hero inside yourself
Search for the secrets you hide
Search for the hero inside yourself
Until you find the key to your life

In this life long and hard though it may seem
Live it as you'd live a dream
Aim so high
Just keep the flame of truth burning bright
The missing treasure you must find
Because you and only you alone
Can build a bridge across the stream
Weave your spell in life's rich tapestry
Your passport to a feel supreme

You've got to search for the hero inside yourself
Search for the secrets you hide
Search for the hero inside yourself
Until you find the key to your life
