Student of The Week

Remi and Marycarmen.jpeg


Remi, a 5 month-old chocolate lab pup owned by Rick Silva, is our student of the week! Remi is a joy to work, so sweet with tons of drive. She is the perfect blend of sweet and spice. She has blown us away with her progress and how advanced she is at her age, not only on the hunt but with her desire to please in obedience. If you’d like to sign your pup up for head start hunt or obedience please give us a call 530-742-3647  @ Hightest Kennels

A Customer Writes

In early October Jaxx and I along with 5 other friends went duck and goose hunting in Shell Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada. Jaxx, a 3 year old male that has spent 10 months of his life with Hightest trainers was phenomenal!  Jaxx had 197 retreives in both open fields and water with temperatures in the low 20’s (I hate to think how cold the ponds and rivers we hunted over were). Nothing escaped him…


Attached are a couple of pictures of Jaxx taken during the hunt. Great job Chris and team.
