Sandringham is a 24,000-acre estate owned by the Royal Family. In 1862 this Royal Family's country home, a neo-Jacobean house with a wonderful country park was bought for Prince Edward, the eldest son of Queen Victoria.
The Sandringham Labradors have been successful in working tests and field trials. The Queen is a good handler of dogs and an experienced field trial judge. On shoot days she handles labradors herself. She has repeatedly given permission for field trials to be held at Sandringham. She knows all her dogs personally and insists on sociability in her gundogs. As a succesful breeder she takes an interest in the labrador world.
