Wassookeag Retrievers……

A Maine hobby breeder of the finest quality Black, Yellow and Chocolate Labrador Retriever puppies and Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers from proven hunting, field and show champion pedigrees for over 26 years.  For more than 20 of those years Wassookeag offered full-time retriever training, hunt test, gun dog and obedience training, dog boarding, day care, short term and extended stay services.  Now our focus is as a hobby kennel –  hunting,  training and exhibiting our own dogs and producing an occasional litter of the highest caliber Retriever pups for which our line is known.

WASSOOKEAG RETRIEVERS is located in the heart of Maine on some private, peaceful acreage of woods, trails, streams and a crystal clear lake. We have a beautiful new, fully equipped kennel with room to work with our own dogs and fine tune them for the upcoming season.
