I am a little late in posting this. We boarded are dogs here. Could not have been more pleased with the owner and facility. I would use them again.

My husband ran trials with Mary and her husband some years ago and was excited to find out one of her dogs had a litter from a bloodline that one of his labs came from. We’ve had our pup for one week and she is a quick learner, very social and quite a personality.


Dickilee Schultz

My wife took her Siberian Husky to them twice and came home a changed pup for the better! Very professional dog trainers in a country setting in beautiful North Bend. This welcoming family truly knows dogs, their bad behavior and are successful in training. We would highly recommend North Bend Retriever Kennel for any and all breed of pooches. Thank you again Mary and Dillon!

I made an appointment for a Sunday morning. Once I got up there, I found out the trainer wasn’t there and wasn’t going to be able to the lesson we’d agreed on. I drove 30 mins each way. I never got an apology email. Trying to give them the benefit of the doubt, I rescheduled my lesson and sent two confirmation emails with no response. Needless to say, I will be finding more reliable training and boarding for my dogs.

We got a rehomed golden retriever through a previous owner from this kennel. The dog is currently 2 years old and was diagnosed with generic brain degeneration and his brain MRI looks exactly as a 12-year old dog. The vet said this is a 100% generic defect and there is no treatment. The kennel wants to take no responsibility and their only suggestion is to put the dog to sleep even given his current situation is okay. Future dog buyers please be aware.
