Wildrose MississippiThe 143-acre training grounds in Oxford, Mississippi include seven water sources, one seasonal stream and a variety of fields and woodlands ideal for the development of outstanding waterfowl and upland game retrievers. We offer exposure to a variety of game, including ducks, quail, and pheasant, in the most realistic hunting environments possible to meet our clients' expectations.
The kennels are housed in four separate covered facilities. Each pen is constructed of 5 x 10 or 10 x 10 welded steel panels. The kennels are not enclosed to assure that dogs remain weather acclimated.
Health Care Facility
The 1750 sq. ft. health care facility offers the finest care for our puppies, dogs in training and mature animals. An on-site veterinarian technician administers our comprehensive health-care program. Individual health records are maintained on all litters and on each dog at Wildrose. Dogs in training receive a physical each month including dental cleaning and nail care. Wildrose takes great pride in providing each dog with the finest nutritional diet, clean facilities, and proper health care.
