Kathryn and Sebastian Wimmer

We got our English Cocker Spaniel from Tar River Retrievers about one year ago and have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with them! Jeff and Lee are wonderful dog breeders and gave us a very healthy and beautiful puppy with a fantastic temperament. They were very professional throughout the process of purchasing and picking up our puppy, and they were very responsive in answering our questions and sending us weekly photos of our puppy since we could not visit due to the pandemic. The pickup process was very smooth and they gave us an organized information packet as well as a toy with her mother’s scent and some food. Our puppy is perfect: She’s sweet, affectionate, and very playful! We highly recommend this breeder!


David Perkins

We recently picked up a Field Spaniel from Jeff Tarriver, and he was awesome and extremely professional! Our dog was almost completely potty trained and very affectionate! I highly recommend Jeff for all your Field Spaniel & Labrador Retriever needs! You won’t find a better breeder than him! We were extremely impressed with him!
