Owner Jake Smith and Black Lab Zam take 2nd place at the SRS dock jumping competition in Mankato!
Here is the letter from Jake.
"Hey Thad!
Can't thank you enough for Zam, he has been doing great. This last week my brother talked me into going
to a SRS dock jumping competition in Mankato with Zam. He loves jumping off the dock at the cabin so
I said why not. His first jump was 10feet but the docks at the competition are way different than at the lake.
His second attempt was 18 feet 1 inch which qualified for the finals. Then in the finals he jumped 20feet 8inches!
I was so proud of him! He listens well, heels, and sits on command! I am a true believer in blood lines!
We ended up in second place! We lost by just 5 inches. Thanks for the opportunity to have a great dog!"

World's Finest E-Collars

Welcome to Round Lake Kennels. We are a breeding & training kennel for retrieving breeds. We specialize in Labrador Retrievers. Many of our dogs are AKC Hunt Test titled, and are extensively hunted on upland game and waterfowl.

Round Lake Kennels' only focus is to provide the best possible Hunting Dogs that also fit into your home and offer excellent companionship. Over the past 15 years we have served a wide variety of dog owners. The majority of those owners have been proud participants in almost every form of hunting available. In addition to hunting homes we have placed dogs in Hunt Test/ Field Trail Homes, Agility/Obedience Competitions and even a few as Assistant dogs for the handicapped. Round Lake Kennels Labradors are hunting all over the nation and even on a few other continents. We have been very blessed with many great dogs and dog owners over the years and look forward to helping you realize the very best that these Retriever breeds have to offer.

Virtually, all puppies are sired by either an NFC, NAFC, FC, AFC, QAA, MH or our QAA sire Oban.  Our puppies will provide complete satisfaction whether your interest is Field Trials, Hunt Tests or Gun Dogs.  They will also provide excellent companionship.

First shots provided, dew claws removed, raised in our home, well socialized and introduced to live pigeons.  See a copy of our written 100% cash back hip and eye guarantee and a  list of our puppy references
