Welcome To Drake Creek Kennels
Hunting Dog Training and Hunt Test Training
At Drake Creek Kennels, our specialty is hunting dog training for HRC Hunt Tests and AKC Hunt Test training in Nebraska. We have very high success rate in both HRC and AKC Hunt Tests Titles. Each year we take on a small number of outside hunting retrievers for training. We are a small family business, not a commercial operation so space is limited! There are many great hunting dog trainers in Nebraska and we are close friends with about all of them! However, our small size makes us vastly different from rest of them.
Drake Creek Kennels offers a variety of stud services, such as side by sides and frozen/fresh chilled straws. It is our goal to provide a high quality stud service for our customers. Our dogs are hunting dogs first. Drake Creek was founded to provide like-minded dog owners the opportunity to have a quality hunting dog as a sire for their litter. Contact us for more information and availability of our stud dogs. Drake Creek currently has a chocolate male, Maverick, available for stud, and one black male, Rider. You can read more about our stud dogs on their stud pages. Why choose Drake Creek Kennels for the stud of your next litter? We will go out of our way to assist you in any way we can and can help sell the puppies by advertising the litter using various channels.
Check the Puppies page for information regarding litters that Drake Creek Kennels' stud dogs sired or that our females have whelped. You many find litters posted that that our studs have sired - but we do not own the female. We are selective in which females we choose to breed. We want to ensure that the quality of the hunting dogs we produce remains at a very high level. Any labrador puppies for sale you see on our site are the result of research into pedigree's of the parents and health characteristics to ensure your next hunting dog is one that will meet your needs well and be with you for years.
Our philosophy is simple: breed only dogs that have established bloodlines and have proven themselves in the hunt test game as well as shown they excel as a genuine hunting companion in the duck blind and pheasant field. This philosophy in breeding leads to hunting dogs that have outstanding ability in the desirable genetic traits of a retriever, such as marking and memory - but have also demonstrated they have the personality suitable to be a family companion during the week and a dependable partner in the marsh or field on the weekend. By breeding only labs that have proven themselves in actual hunting conditions over the years, we’re also able to produce a puppy that we know will be physically up to the task of long days afield or chasing down geese in an ice filled river.
"Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace." -Milan Kundera
All of Drake Creek’s retrievers are hunters, competitors, and family companions; we are not a “commercial operation." Our dogs spend their springs and summers training and competing in Hunt Tests throughout the Midwest. They spend their autumns chasing ducks, geese and pheasants. And they spend their evenings on the floor by the television. They are truly versatile gun dogs.
