Kupa's beauty:  He entered our life from ARALYEN KENNELS at 8 weeks of age in mid 2013. He was a notably handsome puppy which he proved in his conformation classes winning multiple classes in group and show during his showing career. During his show career he gained 10 BOB's, 7 classes in Group, 1 RUBIG and 1 Class in Show. In 2014 Kupa achieved :

Sydney Royal 1st Puppy Dog at 9 months old under International Judge Mr Claudio De Guiliani (IT) 

Labrador Retriever Club of NSW 2014 double show placing third in both shows in the puppy class.

Kupa's puppy  class critique for show 1: Mrs Ronwien Phillips (UK)

3rd Levett’s & Gill’s ARALYEN ICE AGE black who again is at the teenage stage good shape head and has good depth of body needs to develop strength in quarters which will help him power off his hind quarters.

Kupa's puppy class critique for show 2: Ms Sussie Wiles ( UK)

3rd Levett & Gill’s ARALYEN ICE AGE Rangy black with a kind head and expression. Strong neck of good reach. Pleasing coat texture. Would prefer more evidence of a second thigh and better turn of stifle. Moved well.

 Much thanks and credit for his show success must go to 'Team Lewis' Sharryn, Stephen and 13yr old Brooke Lewis. Kupa will continue to be shown as he matures we anticipate he will continue to be very competative in the ring.

 

Kupa's brains: Of great importance to us is Kupa's temperament, intelligence, retrieval ability and drive. Since the completion of Kupa's show title Kupa has commenced training for both obedience and RATG competition. Kupa is a high drive retriever, his focus is exceptional and his retrieval is reliable in water, on land or in scrub. However important to note he is not a crazy dog by nature, he is gentle and bidable, easily handled by young 13 yr old Brooke in the ring always the gentleman on lead and great with kids - a fundamental trait ot a sound Labrador Retriever. As well as his exceptional health qualities and pedigree Kupa is an asset to our Tapua Kennel's breeding program. We aim to breed Labs for a purposeful life and we look forward to seeing his progeny succeed.
