    The new Mr. and Mrs. Yoder live on 18 acres close to Lagrange, IN, and have welcomed three children into their family. Dean and Abby also built a brand new kennel in 2016, complete with in-floor heat, automatic watering, a large exercise area, and indoor-outdoor kennels to create the best possible environment for the dogs when they are not working. ​The kennels are spacious, with the ability to be inside the temperature controlled kennel, or outside, getting some sunshine at any time of the day or year.
    After several decades, this remains a family operated kennel: Abby handles all primary breeding operations and customer service and whether you call or email, she is dedicated to assisting you in every way possible. Luke Eash, the youngest of the Eash family siblings, offers professional retriever training full time between March-November.  If you are interested in training, you can call Luke at 574-238-6272. The oldest of the siblings, Ryan Eash is also involved in the breeding and all the planning that goes on behind scenes. We are a family unit, operating in multiple locations but with one focus: breeding stylish Labrador retrievers that are intense in the field, yet quiet at home with the family. 

Below are some pictures of our facilities.

    At our kennel, we intentionally breed for classic looking dogs who will carry the superior temperament, drive, and trainability expected of a well bred Labrador. In addition to the Hunt Test performance titles that they carry, our Labs come from some of the best and most proven Field Trial bloodlines in the United States.    
    Mel and Char Eash started the kennel in 2002 with Jody, who produced some fantastic pups including HRCH Ellie and other titled dogs.
    The Eash's oldest daughter, Abby, began running dogs in 2004 and now has about 19 years experience having trained several hundred gun-dogs, including many Hunting Retriever Champions and Master Hunters. In 2014, Abby spent a large part of a year training with Field Trial trainer Tera Lanzcak from Texas to Michigan, before returning home to marry her sweetheart, Dean.
