Our mission as a breeder is to bring all the enjoyment and excitement we have in our dogs to you with Retrievers that have the capabilities to grow up to be legends in their own time.
Note: All the dogs we breed are examined and certified by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) and the Canine Eye Reseach Foundation (CERF).
Hunters Kennels is located on 5 acres of land in East Central Wisconsin 3 miles South East of appleton in the Town of Menasha, where we currently train and board dogs. We are a family-owned business with family dogs. We have worked with Labrador and Golden Retrievers for over 30 years while growing a custom home building and construction supply company. We have decided to do what we enjoy the most: hunt, train, and compete with our Retrievers. We have 70 acres of training land in Dale, Wisconsin. Our focus is on breeding the best line of healthy, genetically sound versatile Labrador & Golden Retrievers that are not only exceptional family pets but world class hunting retrievers. We offer stud dog services, Boarding & Training of all breeds, along with puppies and starter dogs tailored for their new family's lifestyle and needs, whether that be a family dog, service dog or a champion hunter.
We have bred and trained World, National, and State Champions. Trained and handled Master hunters and HRC Finished dogs. We have learned what makes a Champion at home or in the field. All our Labradors and Goldens are used in guide services extensively for upland hunting and, waterfowl retrieving. Our dogs see hundreds of birds each year, they are full time Retrievers.
What has made our labrador retriever's so special was the perfect blend of legendary Labradors from both American and British field trial lines, creating a line of Labrador Retrievers that are eager to please with exceptional noses and calm relaxed temperament at home. Our Labradors and goldens are bred to have a intense desire to retrieve and are extremely intelligent with unmatched stamina and drive in the field. We create legends.
