Welcome to our website. This site was developed to give you the insight to our blueprint of the complete breeding, raising, education, health and maintenance of your retriever. We at Bear Creek strive for excellence and continue to research new methods of training, advancements in technology of equipment as well as nutrition for the health and stamina of your companion. Our breeding program is a blending of proven dual show/field lines that is anchored by one of the most decorated of titled show dogs in history, BISS. Ch. Am. Can. Mex. '78 World & Int. Ch. Franklin's Golden Mandigo CD AWC "Mandigo". These lines crossed on today's modern field trial lines or kept pure are producing instinctive retrievers with high trainability along with the desirable temperament for any use, should it be retriever trials, conformation, gentleman's shooting dog or family companion.


As you travel through our site, we hope to answer all the questions you have about our services and credentials, but most of all we hope to help you understand that there is more to our kennel than just buying a puppy or training a dog. We feel it is our responsibility to guide you through ownership and take on more of a consultant role as well as customize our services to each individual's needs. Not only the retrievers, but the owners as well. We thank you for spending time with us, and hope to speak to you personally and or have you tour our facilities.
