About PepperJack Kennels

PepperJack Kennels provides exceptional water and land training year round with our main facility in Wisconsin, and spending months in California during the winter months at dedicated training facilities. Our programs focus on all aspects of retriever training from our puppy head start program, basic obedience to gun dog training. Field Trial Training is our most advanced training and program. We specialize in retriever training by keeping a small amount of dogs in our programs at one time. This allows us to focus on the individual needs of each dog and keep them in our family environment.
