Our dogs have the drive and breeding behind them that produces top performers for field competition and will complement the most avid of hunters.

I hunt dove, quail, chukar, grouse, pheasant, ducks, and geese. Our dogs are eager to please because hunting is what they love to do. All of our dogs and pups come from a home with two young children. These dogs make excellent family pets as they are gentle and obedient. We have two daughters ages 6 and 7 years old that are great socializers to each and every dog on our place.

Submitted by: M Galino on Nov 22, 2014I purchased a male wirehaired pointer from Kim in October of this year. We enrolled our puppy "Stache" in her training program for a few weeks before we picked him up. When we picked him up he already new how to sit and retrieve on command. He was also fairly comfortable walking with a leash. Since we've had him at home he has been extremely entertaining!!!! He is very active and has a very social and friendly demeanor with people and other dogs. We are excited to enroll him in more hunting training very soon. It's obvious he already had a great nose for birds! We have some wings that we hide in the yard and he finds them every time! Stache is very smart which makes him a high maintenance dog! He learns quick but also likes to test us. He constantly needs to be reminded who is in charge and scolded when his curiousity takes over!!!! Potty training has also been a challenge but he is progressing well. He is a great eater and is growing so quick!!!!
Submitted by: G Slattery on Nov 14, 2014I want to thank Kym Lish and for all the devoted work and care that she puts into the operation of Lish Kennels. 6 months ago we made the trip to Arimo, Idaho to pick up our new male Golden Retriever that would soon be named KODA. I new as soon as we connected with KODA, that he was going to be a special dog. Koda has been easy to work with from day 1. He has easily understood basic training commands and at age 2 months we had him in the water and swimming. Koda's favorite toy is a stuffed pheasant and he will retrieve that bird for as long as you are willing to throw it. KODA also has a great personality and has adapted very well socially, he loves his new home and treats our 15 year old Golden "DUKE" with respect. I'm looking to purchasing another Golden Retriever from Lish Kennels in the near future. I highly recommend Lish Kennels and guarantee you will enjoy and appreciate the way that Kym Lish runs her business from day one.
Submitted by: M. Faedi on Oct 22, 2014We purchased our GWH "Beretta" from Kym a few weeks ago, dealing with Kym was a pleasure from the start, my wife and I really looked hard for a breeder and Kym and her family fit the bill perfectly, one thing that was important to us was that her daughters were involved with the puppies from the start, this in my opinion helped with having all kym's puppies be very comfortable around young kids. as for Beretta we couldn't be happier she's not only adorable but smart, birdie, and is learning fast, simply put she is part of our family. Kym throughout the whole process beginning with emailing when the litter was conceived, through the pregnancy, and continual updates after the pups were born complete with photo's was greatly appreciated, I highly recommend Kym as a professional breeder .
Submitted by: Lora on Aug 08, 2014We are so very proud of our newest family member , Dallas a golden retriever puppy! After sadly loosing our ten year old golden to cancer we were determined to find a breeder with healthy bloodlines in hopes of having a longer time with our next precious pooch as 10 years was not long enough. After researching highly reputable breeders, Kym@Lish kennels stood out. She takes great pride in all litters, as she breeds with passion and integrity which certainly showed throughout the entire process! We were kept in the loop via online from pregnancy, birth along with many pictures as well as videos which made us feel like part of the family even before we picked up our bundle of joy!! Dallas is growing so fast and he is blossoming everyday! So smart, loving , fun and truly a show stopper wherever we take him! He is a gorgeous golden inside and out! Thank you Kym and your sweet girls for making Dallas the most friendly, loving, playful puppy our family always hope and dreamed for.
Submitted by: SloanFamily on Aug 06, 2014After losing our beloved Einstein in December, our family anxiously awaited the time to pick up our new little fur ball Winston. Kym offers the best approach to the breed, her family has been raising golden's for over five generation's. Kym keeps you informed and in the loop from the beginning to the end with weekly posting of pictures of all the puppies and then individual's pictures as well. When it comes time to select your puppy she is very helpful answering any questions and provides plenty of pictures. Another bonus with Kym's facility is that she has two younger daughters who are great big helpers, making sure each little pup gets plenty of love each day. Winston is a very smart curious little guy. He tells us when he needs to go outside by sitting at back door and barking once. Winston already can sit on command and loves his treats. He is super happy and loves to play with his big sister Gracie May. Winston is beautiful healthy happy busy guy. We couldn't be happier!!! :0)
Submitted by: L. Longstaff on Jul 21, 2014Topanga arrived just over a week ago to be my partner in Training at the Tom Rose School and my Business partner later for Pet Obedience. So far she is instantly answering to her name, watching my face closely, and following 6 purely verbal commands: Sit, Come (with a sit-front), Speak, "Go to your room" (go in the crate), "Free" which means she can exit the crate, and No! She is an extremely compliant, happy, and confident puppy. There are 15 other students in the course with puppies of their own and she is one of the top two in our class already! I've had to get permission and private training with the Instructors because she's advancing so quickly I have to teach her ahead of the usual program! I couldn't be more satisfied with this bundle of fur, and can hardly believe my luck. Thank you again Kym for doing such an amazing job and for getting this girl in my life! Topanga's happiness is utterly contagious, and her motivation to learn is inspiring.
Submitted by: E Segerberg on Mar 16, 2014Hi kym!!!
Just wanted to send you this awesome picture of fin from the other day. He is by far the most amazing dog! He hikes, skis, fishes, and does everything with us... He is always by our side! Absolutely the most loyal dog we have ever been around. My parents who have owned goldens for forty years couldn't get over his achievement. He is simply our heart and soul. Thank you so much!
Submitted by: J Peterson on Feb 05, 2014I highly recommend Lish Kennels, Kym is a professional in every sense of the word. My GSP puppy "Misty" is a wonderful addition to my family. She is proving every day to be the highly intelligent dog I imagined. The week of training that Kym provided prior to me picking Misty up paid huge dividends, a must for new puppy owners.
Submitted by: Wrights on Jan 13, 2014I just wanted to say thank you for sending us the perfect new addition to our family! Dasher has fit in perfectly at our house and he is an amazing pup. He has hardly had any accidents (and I was prepared for a bunch!) and the kids argue over who gets to feed, walk, brush or play with him. He loves playing fetch with tennis balls or even his toys (the toy pheasant is his favorite). We were so surprised that he already knows how to retrieve the ball and bring it right back and drop it to be throw again. We gave him his first bath in the sink and he sat very still like a perfect little gentleman. Same thing when I tipped his nails for the first time.
Everyone who meets him falls instantly in love... And he loves the attention. He will lay in the kids lap and sleep and that makes them so happy. My husband can't wait to get him out in the field tracking birds. I'm sure he will be great at that also :)
We have also found that having you do the intro training was well worth the expense! He loves his crate and has not had one accident in it. When the kids wear him out he knows it's a perfect place to rest! He also listens so well and comes when called. He does great with "sit" and "come" and the kids are teaching him to do "paw".
So thank you so much for a wonderful experience with buying our first puppy. We look forward to many many years of love... And if we ever decide to add another dog to the family you will be the first one I contact. I will also recommend your kennel to anyone looking for a golden or pointer.
Submitted by: D Slomanson on Jan 03, 2014Kimberly- Ranger and I would like to wish you and the family a happy holiday once again. Ranger has made it through his first full year here in California. While the hunting prospects weren't great this year, Ranger still got 10-12 days in the field. Even though the Quail and chukkars didn't give us many retrieving opportunities, Ranger still had many good walks from the mountains of the Eastern Sierras through the Mohave Desert and ending up swimming in the duck ponds of the Salton Sea. We started the bird season with a fresh snowfall by the cabin, however we couldn't have had worse luck in getting any birds to fly. Seems the only excitement we had was jumping too very large racked Tule Elks. Fortunately we had many bobwhites available during our preseason trials at the local training ground. Ranger even impressed the German Shorthaired handlers with his good noise and retrieving scene.
With the only coveys of quail hanging out around the local hills and the city frowning on shooting around the house, Ranger and I were forced to retrieve ducks. While I think Ranger is better hiking for upland birds, he couldn't contain his enthusiasm for water retrieves once the ducks started flying.
Too bad my blind partners weren't shooting straight,as Ranger ended up retrieving decoys for an hour or so before we got the ducks to drop. Rangers further excitement even let to him taking half the blind apart in getting to retrieve real ducks in the water. One couldn't fault him once we saw him proudly returning with his beloved duck. While the opportunity came to have him retrieve a snow goose, I didn't think hauling back a 35 lbs bird would do his ego any good, so we let them fly by.
Finally the end of pheasant season came all too soon and we only had one opportunity for pheasants. Even so, Ranger and I had the good fortune to help the CFG and Quails Forever with the Jr hunters program in their pursuit of this beautiful bird. Ranger ending up with 6 pheasants and I'm sure you would have made you proud of his abilities. All the new junior hunters wanted Ranger for their partner.
While Ranger is progressing well in the field, I'm just as impressed with him at home. Even with three other golden's in the neighborhood, Ranger is the best loved of the bunch. Everyone welcomes Ranger and he even gets more presents, treats and invitations to swim in pools then me. In closing I'd just like to thank you once again for sending Ranger my way. Ranger's made my life much more complete and happy, even if we still live in California for the foreseeable time. I hope you and your family have the best of holiday's and a better new year.
Ranger and Dave
