The Royal Kennels

Established by King Edward VII in 1879 to house 100 dogs, the Sandringham kennels and the labradors which are bred there have become firm favourites of the Royal Family.

The Queen takes a very great interest in the Sandringham kennels. Since her accession to the throne in 1952, the breeding programme has gone from strength to strength, culminating in the training of five Field Trial Champions. All the puppies born at Sandringham are named by The Queen and are registered at the Kennel Club with the prefix Sandringham.
