Welcome to Oak Tree Kennels!
Our passion for dogs shows in every dog born and trained at Oak Tree Kennels. The people here at OTK are the key to our success. Brad Vail takes pride in getting every dog to reach its potential. The dogs love the "Kennel Crew" who feed them and keep their house clean.
The Labs in our breeding program have excellent pedigrees and have proven themselves in the field, hunt tests, and field trails. Check out the Labrador puppies section for black and yellow pups in our upcoming litters. If you need a started or finished dog, we can help you there also.
"Attitude is Everything." This motto drives our training program. Dogs that enjoy training perform better. Whether your dog is here for gun dog training or preparing for hunt tests, building a solid foundation of obedience, collar conditioning, and force-fetching is essential. With this foundation we mesh the dog's natural abilities and trained behaviors to produce a finished hunting partner for upland or waterfowl hunting.
Our facilities are second to none. The climate controlled kennel buildings provide a safe, clean, and comfortable place for your dog. 7200 acres of training grounds in South Dakota (the heart of the Central Flyway and a pheasant Mecca) ensure your dog will see all kinds of fields, sloughs, shelter belts, ponds, and lakes. They'll be ready for anything. Go to the facilities section to see where we train.
