Like a lot of
hardcore waterfowlers, I'm a do-it-yourselfer. From calling to decoys,
I have strong ideas about what works and what doesn't. When I got Buck
as an eight-week-old pup, I was determined to train him myself.
I read books and magazine
articles, watched videos and talked to other retriever owners, looking
for training advice. The best tip I got came from two of my hunting buddies:
take your dog to Trish Jagoda. When I finally hit a wall with Buck's training,
my wife convinced me to follow their advice. It's hard to find the words
to express my happiness with the training Buck (and I) received at Silverbrook
Kennels. Let's just say that he's become a real gentleman and a hell of
a hunting dog. My wife thinks it's the best investment we've ever made.
Thanks Trish and the staff
of Silverbrookfor all you've done for us.

I started looking for a Lab
to be a hunting partner and a family member. At Silver Brook Kennels, I
got a great hunting partner and a fantastic family member. I first went
to Silver Brook just to take a look. I found that the kennels were clean
and well maintained. I then got to watch the dogs work in the field. I
was impressed at how the dogs performed and how they responded to Trish.
After my initial visit, I knew that Trish Jagoda runs Silver Brook as a
first class kennel. After placing a deposit on a male puppy I waited in
great anticipation. I visited many times before and after the puppies were
born. On each visit I always found the staff friendly and the kennels clean.
At the age of 50-days old I picked my puppy. We named the puppy Chief and
he quickly acclimated to our home. He is great with our children. House
breaking was easy. He is a very smart dog that learns quickly and is easy
to train. Chief loves to retrieve live birds and dummies on land and water.
I have received numerous positive comments on his excellent behavior. Thanks
to Trish Jagoda and Silver Brook kennels for providing such a quality dog!
