Topanga 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.

Hi 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!

I 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.

I 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.

Kimberly- 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

Ender is doing great! He is such a smart dog! We can already tell there is a huge difference between him and the other goldens we have had that aren't specifically bred for hunting. He loves to play fetch, go to the river, and go duck hunting. He loves to goes hunting very frequently. When anyone says the word "bird" his ears perk up and he becomes very attentive. He has to be involved in everything we do. If we play cards or watch a movie, he likes to lie in our laps. We love him very much! Thank you!

Hi Kym, Just wanted to send you some pictures of Reece. We love her so much and couldn't ask for a better dog. She is growing so fast, gained 8 lbs just this month. WE LOVE HER. Losing track but I think 14 weeks now.

Thanks again.

We picked up our GWP Jaga from the airport a month or so ago and have been absolutely amazed with him since. Even though I was nervous of the flight it was just a day in the park for Jaga. He was so social from the start and came home to our house of two other dogs and 3 children and acted as he has always belonged here. I cant say enough good things about how well Kym has socialized these puppies and how helpful she has been through my many questions. Jaga is extremely focused during our training session and was locking up on pheasant wings within minutes of seeing his first one. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and can't wait to see the hunter he will turn into.

I have purchased a total of 3 puppies from Kym over the years. All of which have been amazing! Kym works with all of her dogs and pups to ensure you are getting the best and most for your money. All of our pups from her are amazing hunters as well as family dogs. Our newest addition is only 11 wks old and already hunting the yard. Kym is very honest and easy to work with. I highly recommend her and her pups! Quotes

update on Fynn. He is doing well and has adjusted to his family very well. Last night I was finally able to let him sleep outside his kennel in the house and we had no accidents. He loves to play and has been a great influence on my youngest son.
Bird training is going well too. He does an absolute beautiful job retreiving birds for his age and drops them in my hand without any hesitation. Not to mention he has not left a mark on a single bird yet. soft soft mouth.

Have a great day
Scott Derry
