Started & Finished Dogs

Started Dogs

Wildrose Kennels offers superior young retriever prospects for sale with varying levels of proficiency. Occasionally we select black and yellow pups from our own breeding stock of fine English progeny and retain these pups for training.

Unlike other training programs for trial purposes these are not “wash out” started pups. Contrarily we select the best of the best. These puppies are of impeccable pedigree, properly socialized and trained by the proven Wildrose methodology.

All started gundogs or adventurers have been exposed to our unique super learner program and then back grounded in the home. These are not kennel-raised puppies. Each prospect is then trained to our specified standards to achieve the client’s desirables to become excellent companions of the field, marsh and/or trail, a true Gentleman’s Gundog, trained…a positive way…a balanced way…The Wildrose Way.

Finished Dogs

Wildrose Kennels offers the discerning retriever enthusiast the opportunity to field a Gentleman’s shooting dog of the finest quality, fully trained on upland game and waterfowl to the exacting specifications of each client. These are custom-produced hunting companions of 100% imported British/Irish field -bred Labrador genetics. Each has had two seasons of hunting experience, most being exposed to over 1,000 birds.

Our finished labs are splendid companions given their calm temperament and biddable nature. Each retriever is custom trained by natural methods without electric collars or force fetch. These are classic gamefinders equally at home on the pheasant drive and in the duck blind as they are pleasurable in the home with the family.

The new owner of these fine animals is expected to visit the training facility to receive individual instruction in handling their retriever prior to delivery.  We ensure the beginning of a partnership between the gundog and handler before delivery.
