Our Kennel and Home

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 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, OFA Cardiac Clear and OFA Eye 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), EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse) HNPK (Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis), DM (Degenerative Myelopathy) and SD (Skeletal Dysplasia 2).  We unconditionally guarantee that our puppies will not be AFFECTED by any of the genetic disorders that we test for.  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.
