With many years of breeding experience, a passion for the outdoors and a love for the companionship of critters, Wildcat Hollow Retrievers was born. We love and care for our dogs and treat them just like they're our children. Nestled in the hills of the Ozarks on a 73 acre farm in Cherokee Village, Arkansas, our retrievers live the good life!

Labrador Retriever and Golden Retriever Kennel



Wildcat Hollow

73 acres of lush landscape span the view from atop our farm in Cherokee Village.


Our dogs have long outdoor runs with access to the running pen and a doggie door that leads to the indoor, heated and cooled sleep area. Our kennel is designed for function, comfort for our animals, as well as quality of health. Years of research provided ideas for cleanliness, resulting in our kennel clean-up emptying into a septic system.


All of our dogs have exceptional champion bloodlines to ensure the highest quality in every puppy. They also have health clearances for all issues common in labs and golden retrievers. We stand behind each of our dogs and offer a health guarantee for your puppy. 



We each have our jobs on the farm. Shaun loves to talk dogs, so if you call,

you'll probably talk to him. He never meets a stranger, so once you've talked

with us, you're part of the family too. Yalanda is our website developer, puppy

mama and photographer. It's not easy getting candid shots of those cute puppies,

but somehow she always manages to capture their personality. Hunter is

exactly what his name says - he hunts and trains. He leads our 12 and 16 week

"Tailored to You" Puppy Training Programs. 

Larry, or Paw-Paw, is known as our "Lab Tech", taking care of the every day

operations. Grandma Noma sings and loves on all of our dogs and makes sure

everyone knows just how special they are. We are excited to share our love for

dogs with you and will do our best to help find the perfect fit for your family. 

If at any time you have questions or just need details about one of our pups,

we are available. Please feel free to contact us!



Most importantly, we hope to share the love of Jesus with all those we come in

contact with. There is no greater decision you will make in this life than whether

or not to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. If you are searching to fill a

void in your life, search no further than the unconditional love Christ offers to you.

Ephesians 2:4-5 says, "But God, who is rich in mercy for his great love wherewith

he loved us, even when we were dead in our sins, hath quickened us together with

Christ, by grace ye are saved." Christ died for the sins of all man-kind, we just have

to accept his free gift of salvation and follow Him. If you'd like to know more,

we invite you to follow Yalanda on facebook to read a daily devotional she writes

each morning.
