Imperial Retrievers offers training services for Waterfowl, Upland, Hunt Tests, and Antler Shed training, for all breeds of Retrievers. We'll cater our training to your style of hunting, and spend time teaching you how to communicate with your pup.
Kennel owner Kirk Keene is a guide at the famed Arrowhead Lodge located in Wolf Lake, Illinois, and our dogs may pick up in excess of 500 ducks and geese in a single season. Our knowledge of what makes a great waterfowl retriever has been honed by this experience, and we feel this makes us unique in the world of retriever kennels. In addition to our hunting background, we also participate in Hunt Tests.
We occasionally offer Labrador Retriever puppies from our personal gun/hunt test dogs, as well as Started/Finished Retrievers. All of our breeding individuals have graded Good or Excellent hips via OFA, tested Clear for hereditary eye disease, and tested Clear for EIC, CNM, and PRA. We provide a 30 month health guarantee with the purchase of any of our pups. We also title our personal dogs through the Hunting Retriever Club (HRC).
