Bourbon Bay Kennels


 Bourbon Bay Kennels offers your retriever the finest facility in the state!

  We are very proud of the fact that our retrievers stay in a state of the art climate controlled kennel facility with endless training opportunities right out the back door of the kennel!!! Providing a safe and healthy environment that is conducive to training should be of upmost importance in any training program! 

        During the months of April through December Bourbon Bay Kennels sits on 50 acres of grounds/ponds that are groomed just for the purpose of making your retriever the best that it can be. The property that the kennel sits on consists of 4 ponds, a pattern field and a concept field with many terrain and cover changes. Our training water is hands down the nicest training water in the state which includes a stick pond, swimby pond, young dog pond, 6+ acres of amazing technical water and plenty of running water.  We also have access to thousands of acres of private training properties within 15 miles of the kennel.  This allows your retriever to spend more time training instead of travelling. Your retriever will reside in a brand new , all indoor heated and property ventilated  kennel facility complete with 22 stainless steel 4' x 8' Mason kennels with solid stainless walls so your dog can rest comfortably in privacy during his down time. Our kennels are sanitized daily with a Wsyi-Wash sani system and also cleaned as needed throughout the day to ensure your retriever stays healthy and happy. The dogs also have 2 large fenced in airing yards (one for males and one for females) where they can play and stretch their legs. 

        During the months of Jan, Feb and March Bourbon Bay Kennels migrates to the southern states where we are able to keep dogs progressing through training while the winter weather in Indiana would stall field training. Down south we have several technical ponds, stock ponds and thousands of acres or rolling ranch land that is groomed to challenge your retriever. Winter trip has proven to be extremely productive during the winter months and also allows us to continue to campaign your retriever during what would be the off season. We train retrievers year round to ensure that we can reach your goals for your retriever.

        When travelling to competitions or daily training your retriever will ride comfortably and safely in our 20 hole Ainley gooseneck stainless steel dog trailer. The dog trailer is extremely insulated and equipped with fans to ensure the dogs stay warm in cold weather and stay cool in hot weather. With onboard pressurized water and lots of storage we truly have a first class kennel on wheels. We believe in using the most reliable and best of equipment to train your retriever. We use Gunners Up equipment, PRT products, ATV's, Bumper Boy launchers and Dogtra electronics on a daily basis to aid in developing your retriever.  We are also an authorized dealer of Dogra products, which allows us to offer our clients a superior product at discounted rate.
