TRAINING > FACILITIES AND LOCATION

Bear Creek on the Bayou Retrievers' facilities rest on the beautiful rolling hills and is nestled in the hardwoods just north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The kennels and ponds are situated on 20 acres most of which is dog proof safety fence. The main kennel runs are spacious 5 x 10 and covered by our high ceiling structure to keep the weather out and designed to be cool and dry during our main season of training. Health is paramount and our design promotes ease of cleaning and disinfecting.

Bear Creek also provides the finest nutrition and supplements when needed to keep the energy level and overall appearance of your pet at its peak. We have the availability of a fine vet staff only 15 minutes from our facility and being just outside of Baton Rouge, LSU is available and is nationally known as one of the finest institutions for veterinary medicine.

For our out of state clients the Metro Airport is under 30 minutes away and is used frequently to fly dogs into us as well as providing the owner transport. Our training ponds and technical ponds have been developed for teaching and were designed by Steve with the ideas taken from all the best facilities he has trained on. We are also in the process of designing and excavating other sets of ponds to challenge even the most advanced retrievers.

Bear Creek has also been very fortunate to pick up over 4000 acres of various terrains and water to train on due to the generosity of local dog fanciers and clients who give us access. We are fortunate enough to have the ability to simulate virtually any hunting scenario be it for hunt tests or for the hardcore hunter. T hese areas are easily accessible with a short ride in our specially designed training trailer. With safety and comfort in mind we have had a 16 hole trailer with extra large compartments and fans for low stress.

Everything we design is for the education and comfort of your companion and we will always commit to advancing our facilities and equipment to enhance our skills.
