If you want info about breeding , there is a section of the forum for that. This is not a good way to locate an appropriate stud for your *****.

No need to shout (ALL CAPS is like shouting on the internet). Pocklea is a British field trial kennel is it not?

JustLabs is mainly a pet owner forum, why don't you have a look at the retriever training forum AKA "RTF".

First, get all her health clearance data, pedigree, performance results, if any, and photos together. You are going to need hips cleared by OFA or Penn-Hip, preferably elbows too, and eyes checked/CERF at minimum, possibly some genetic tests as well. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do this the right way or not at all, responsible breeders do these health screenings, study the best methods of breeding, whelping and litter raising, and will take puppies they've bred back if the puppy/dog is ever in danger of becoming an unwanted or neglected animal. If you have prepared to do all of this already then "my bad." If you breed without doing these things then you are part of the problem and will rightly be shunned by members of this forum, and hopefully the entire rest of the responsible dog loving world.

Look for kennels you like on the web and at dogs at hunt tests/field trials, then call the owners of dogs you like and be ready to email the aforementioned info on your ***** to the owners if they are interested. Don't expect stud owners to contact you based on forum posts like your first one. Most owners of good males (meaning mental/physical sound, with clearances, field titles...) have ***** owners contacting them, not the other way around, and if you don't care if it is a good stud dog then you shouldn't be breeding anyway.

Ditto what Three T's said. Your bitches lineage alone is not an adequate reason to breed her. If she is health cleared for CNM, EIC, Had hip and elbow evaluations via Penn or OFA and earned a title, maybe she's a candidate for breeding that would meet the expectations of a good stud dog owner. If you have not done these things and she has not been proven in show or field, you should leave breeding to those who seek to enhance the breed.
