Boarding   Cresthill Labrador Retrievers

Cresthill Kennels is a small, family owned and operated all breed boarding kennel and Labrador Retriever breeding facility.  The kennel is ideally situated on 46 rolling country acres in beautiful Caroline County VA.  We are conveniently located 20 minutes south of Fredericksburg, VA and 45 minutes north of Richmond just off of I-95

Our state of the art facility is now open.  We are accepting boarding reservations.  The boarding facility has all of the modern features that a premier kennel should have.  Climate control with radiant heat floors and central air-conditioning,  1 - 2 supervised exercise/play sessions per day (weather permitting), skylights for natural lighting, professional quality grain free food and round the clock care are just a few of the amenities that you can expect at our facility.  Your pet may like us so much that they may never want to go home.

Our Labrador Retriever breeding program was founded in 1998 with the purchase of our first purebred Labrador Retriever, Windemere's River Song SH.  All of our breeding dogs are proven performers.  They are hunted and/or campaigned in AKC, UKC and NAHRA hunt tests.  They must also pass rigorous health screenings before they are accepted into our breeding program.  All of our breeding stock have OFA Good or Excellent Hips, OFA Normal Elbows and are CERF certified annually.  Cresthill is one of the very few breeding kennels in the country that submits their breeding dogs to DNA testing for PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy), RD/OSD (Retinal Dysplasia/OculoSketetal Dysplasia), CNM (Labrador Centronuclear Myopathy) and EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse).  We unconditionally guarantee that our puppies will not be AFFECTED by PRA, RD/OSD, CNM or EIC.  Our goal is to produce healthy, genetically sound puppies while still preserving the breed's natural hunting abilities, instincts, trainability and temperament.  We are proud to offer the best written guarantee in the country. 

Please call for an appointment and directions if you are interested in visiting us in person.  We are always happy to take guests on a tour of our facility.

Due to many requests, we will now accept credit cards effective January 2, 2017!

Please note: We will also be increasing our rates effective January 2, 2017 to $30 daily per run for the first dog as we have not had in an increase in over 10 years.  Additional dogs in the same run will remain $20 each. For those who choose to pay with Cash or Check, the discounted rate will continue to be $25 daily per run for the first dog.
