Imperial Retrievers offers Obedience, Started, and Finished training services for the Waterfowl & Upland hunter, encompassing all retriever breeds. In addition, we offer training for Hunt Tests & British Field Trials. If you prefer, we will also handle your dog at these events. We encourage all of our clients to be a part of the training process, as this helps both client and dog learn to work as a team. We take a limited number of client dogs at a time, to insure each pup gets plenty of one-on-one training.

We occasionally offer Labrador Retriever puppies from our personal gun dogs. Our dogs are hunted on a commercial waterfowl club, and titled through HRC Hunt Tests. We do extensive testing for hereditary diseases on all of our breeding dogs, to assure sound and healthy pups. All pups come with full AKC registration, a 26 month guarantee against hip dysplasia and cataracts, and are thoroughly socialized. Schedule a visit, and well be happy to do a simulated duck hunt or hunt test with any of our breeding dogs. We dont just claim to have top-notch retrievers...were willing to prove it!

Guiding at the famed Arrowhead Lodge & Hunt Club, owner/trainer Kirk Keene has the knowledge and experience to sculpt your pup into an efficient and trustworthy working retriever. We have access to thousands of acres of training grounds with both land and water. We train for many different hunting scenarios, and will tailor our training to fit your particular style of hunting.

We also offer guided waterfowl hunts at Arrowhead Lodge, for groups numbering 4-6 hunters. There are a limited number of hunts available, so book your hunt early!

Imperial Retrievers is centrally located between St. Louis MO, Paducah KY, Springfield IL, and Nashville TN. Whether you buy a pup, bring your dog for training, or book a guided hunt, you and your pup will be treated like family.

If you are looking for a trainer who truly cares about your dog and will be honest (and available to you) throughout the whole training process, Kirk is your guy. You simply could not ask for a nicer, more patient person, and he treats all of the dogs in his care as if they were one of his own. He also maintains the cleanest kennel I have ever visited. My 16 month old female black lab just finished Kirks started dog program and she is doing great. No doubt that she is ready to go hunting right now. If you are looking for a trainer, puppy, or even a started dog, I would 100% give Kirk a call - you will not be disappointed!

After searching the internet for a hunting retriever, we stumbled across Imperial Retrievers. It was very evident from the get go how much love and passion Kirk puts towards not only developing a great hunting partner but a lifelong friend. We purchased Zoey, who was a started retriever this past month and she has been a great addition to the family. She fits right in with our young family and she loves attention. Although, Im not sure she enjoys it as much as she does retrieving. She is an extremely driven, smart and obedient young lab. Zoey even listens to commands from my 6 year old and 3 year old! Kirk recently ran her in Tennessee and she is halfway done with her HRC Started title. Zoey completed it without a hitch and we should have no trouble getting her complete Started title this fall, she is definitely up for the task! I would highly recommend anyone who is serious about purchasing a hunting partner to look no further than Kirk and his wife Kim at Imperial Retrievers!

Imperial Retrievers has been a wonderful experience for “Sadie” our British lab as well as me. It’s evident the care and attention each and every dog gets when you show up for a visit or a training day. Always in great shape, always full of energy and ready to go. Once you meet Kirk and his wife Kim you will be put at ease immediately. They treat every dog as if it is their own. Your best friend and you will have a new friend for life when you leave Imperial Retrievers. At a recent hunt test Sadie proved that as she looked back over her shoulder at the blind the duck had been thrown from. You guessed it, Kirk was helping out by loading the launcher and Sadie just winded him. This was only after spending a short ten weeks with him. At ten months old we were running hunt test and both learning as we went. She has since earned her “SHR” tittle and we are ready to run Seasoned. After her time with Kirk we have the confidence in Sadie to take her everywhere we go. Her obedience training as well as her retriever training has been second to none. I’m sure there are other great trainers out there but we have found ours.
