Why should you choose Y-Farms Kennels?

Why should you choose Y-Farms Kennels?

 Our kennel is located at our family farm, we are the only kennel in the state of Louisiana that offers so many different services (all breeds boarding, gun dog training, AKC/UKC Hunt test training, all breeds obedience training, retriever puppies & started gun dogs)

Boarding: At Y-Farms your dog is treated as he/she is part of our family, we are their home away from home. We live on site therefore your dog has 24 hour/ 7 days a week care.

Training: Our kennel does not have a "cookie cutter" training program. We focus on each dog's strengths and weaknesses, each dog learns and comprehends differently, therefore we tailor our training to fit each dog.
 
Pups: High-quality field retrievers are our specialty, this has been proven by the many successful hunting retrievers that carry the "Y-Farms" name. 

Kennel Affliations: Our kennel has many affliations, we are an East Baton Rouge parish Licensed commerical kennel. Our family has been Amite River Hunting Retriever Club members since 2003. Jennifer has worked very hard to become and continue to be a Labrador Retriever Club of America member. Our kennel is an International Association of Canine Professionals member. Y-Farms also has a Registered Kennel name through the American Kennel Club, we are also are members of the Zachary, Louisiana Chamber of Commerce.

Accountability: Our facility is inspected by the East Baton Rouge Animal Control Service each year, before our kennel permit is issued. Y-Farms is also inspected by American Kennel Club. Our breeding program paperwork is reviewed, our dogs are checked to confirm that they are healthy, and our facility is also inspected for cleanliness. 

 
Experience: Jennifer founded Y-Farms Kennels in 1998. Y-Farms has always been Jen's full time profession, she does not have another job elsewhere. We have seen significant growth at our kennel over the years but we always strive to keep an at home feeling to all of the dogs who stay with us.
