I got my Buddy from Kym about six months ago. She was great to work with and I couldn’t be happier with Buddy. He’s incredibly smart and loveable. I highly recommend Lish Kennels!


Lillian Lee

So happy with the quick responses, pre training and beautiful breeding. I am in love with my boy Mack! This is by far one of the most professional and friendly breeders I have researched for goldens in the PNW. No regrets and HIGHLY recommended.

We feel like we got the BEST possible Golden Retriever by going through Lish Kennels. Kym has worked hard and her dedication to the health, longevity, and disposition of the breed is apparent. The whole process, from Day 1, was professional and smooth. Kym kept us informed every week as we awaited to pick up our pup with updates and pictures, and was always quick to respond to any of our questions. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the kennels. We paid for the extra 2 weeks of crate training while our pup was 6-8 weeks old, and we feel that was invaluable. Our pup was so quick to adjust once we brought her home and was a breeze to housetrain. She is currently 12 weeks now and our puppy is such a joy. I would say you get what you pay for– the price tag is high, but every penny is worth it for the temperament and health that Kym breeds for. We would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for a golden.

It is a family owned business. The address listed on Google is literally their house. So please be mindful of that. I was looking for golden retriever puppies. Their dogs seem very healthy and very well looked after. From what I was told their litters are booked for the next year (well into 2022). I was recommended to visit their website and fill in the form to reserve or “pre-order” your puppy.

I bought a puppy last fall dog immediately started showing health issues.
1) seizures
2) diabetes insipidus
3) plural distichiae
4) puppy ended up dying about 3 months ago from seizures.

Kym didn’t do anything for me. All I did was ask for my money back or even some of my money and she said all health issues would have had to be seen by a board of OFA vets then and only then would she consider doing anything for me.
What a money hungry selfish person who doesn’t care about her dogs health or obviously what I went through and how much money I spent trying to figure out why my puppy was dying and having so many issues.

Never buy from her she will not hold up to her contract.
