All the dogs are kept in our kennel building, which was built in 2015. We rotate all of our dogs in and out of the house as well. Being housebroken is a must at KCR!
We recently updated our kennels and now all of our dogs reside in ProBuilt Kennels. The building is fully insulated, very well ventilated, climate controlled, and has a security system in place. No other retriever training or breeding facility in the KC Metro can boast that. All the kennels are spacious runs with custom built doghouses and a kuranda bed.
Janelle and I take considerable pride in the cleanliness of our kennels & facility. We are inspected annually by the Missouri Department of Ag and the American Kennel Club.
We currently have 8 different ponds that reside on our 30 acres of heaven. These ponds are specifically designed to aid in the development of our retrievers. Every pond we have offers a different experience and serves a different purpose for our retrievers. Developing our grounds and facility is an ongoing and never-ending process.
In addition to our ponds, we have access to hundreds of acres of land within minutes of our property. These grounds offer a number of challenges and factors that any level of retriever benefits from.
At KC Retrievers we have a custom built 14-hole MTCK trailer. The KCR dogs ride in luxury! Each retriever has their own individual spot, just like their own kennel. The trailer is built for the overall safety & comfort for these hard-working retrievers regardless of if we are training on the property or traveling to a competition.
Along with our trailer we have a number of other items that aid in the training of our retrievers. Holding blinds, dog stands, decoys, duck calls, blank guns, ammunition, bumpers, and most importantly ducks are utilized on a daily basis.
We have ducks, pigeons, and pheasants that all KCR dogs retrieve on a daily and weekly basis. We believe...no birds...no bird dog!!!
