Success Stories

For the second and third year in a row Wham and Bj are MN state 4H dog show advanced agility and obedience champions! Handled by DJ Lambert these girls guide hunts 90 days a year in SD. What a combination for your next puppy!

It is with the greatest amount of excitement that we share the news of a round lake kennel client and dog trainer Jack Zimmerman. Jack purchased a puppy from Round Lake out of a litter consisting of our own female BJ and a sire named Oban, who is a qualified all age sire. Jack is a military veteran who served our county with honor and sacrifice. He is wheel chair bound and just titled his dog Moose as a senior hunter in the AKC hunt test competitions. To our knowledge this is the highest level of accomplishment for a dog trainer who is wheel chair bound. This is a just testament to his determination, courage and patience. Round Lake Kennels would like to extend congratulations to Jack Zimmerman and his faithful companion Moose for a job more than just well done. we are excited to share in this very unique success story.

Thanks to Chris Smith for the training! Thad and RLK owes our success and thanks to Chris also for teaching me how to train dogs and being a great mentor!

You can see a video of Moose in action here.

Owner Jake Smith and Black Lab Zam take 2nd place at the SRS dock jumping competition in Mankato!
Here is the letter from Jake.
"Hey Thad!
Can't thank you enough for Zam, he has been doing great. This last week my brother talked me into going
to a SRS dock jumping competition in Mankato with Zam. He loves jumping off the dock at the cabin so
I said why not. His first jump was 10feet but the docks at the competition are way different than at the lake.
His second attempt was 18 feet 1 inch which qualified for the finals. Then in the finals he jumped 20feet 8inches!
I was so proud of him! He listens well, heels, and sits on command! I am a true believer in blood lines!
We ended up in second place! We lost by just 5 inches. Thanks for the opportunity to have a great dog!"

World's Finest E-Collars

Welcome to Round Lake Kennels. We are a breeding & training kennel for retrieving breeds. We specialize in Labrador Retrievers. Many of our dogs are AKC Hunt Test titled, and are extensively hunted on upland game and waterfowl.

Round Lake Kennels' only focus is to provide the best possible Hunting Dogs that also fit into your home and offer excellent companionship. Over the past 15 years we have served a wide variety of dog owners. The majority of those owners have been proud participants in almost every form of hunting available. In addition to hunting homes we have placed dogs in Hunt Test/ Field Trail Homes, Agility/Obedience Competitions and even a few as Assistant dogs for the handicapped. Round Lake Kennels Labradors are hunting all over the nation and even on a few other continents. We have been very blessed with many great dogs and dog owners over the years and look forward to helping you realize the very best that these Retriever breeds have to offer.

Virtually, all puppies are sired by either an NFC, NAFC, FC, AFC, QAA, MH or our QAA sire Oban.  Our puppies will provide complete satisfaction whether your interest is Field Trials, Hunt Tests or Gun Dogs.  They will also provide excellent companionship.

First shots provided, dew claws removed, raised in our home, well socialized and introduced to live pigeons.  See a copy of our written 100% cash back hip and eye guarantee and a  list of our puppy references
