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 bred retrievers is our specialty. This has been proven by the many successful hunting retrievers that carry the "Y-Farms" name.
