Welcome To The BLAST Wingshooting Kennels

THE BLAST provides top quality retriever training for sporting dog enthusiasts. Our comprehensive training program allows us to train your dog for whichever retriever venue you choose. We provide programs for finished waterfowl and upland hunters, AKC Hunt Test Participants, AKC Field Trial Competitions and Upland Bird Dog Tournaments. Trainers here at THE BLAST are avid hunters as well as competitors and set high standards for each dog they train. Modern day training methods allow us to customize training programs for the individual dog. Therefore, your dog gets the proper training they need to reach their highest potential.

We take pride in our breeding program to breed, train, and compete with the most versatile retrievers possible. We spend countless hours researching pedigrees, training different retriever lines, and breeding genetically sound Labradors to produce the complete family, hunting and competition package. Check out our females, stud dogs, litters and started dog pages for your next top quality retriever.

We want you to be comfortable with your companion's training experience. We will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the training of your companion. Each dog in training at THE BLAST is treated and cared for as if it were our own. Owners of dogs support each other through our Facebook page throughout the year. We want all owners of dogs to feel like a part of Team BLAST.
