We are a family owned and operated kennel in Boykin, South Carolina. Alan began training dogs at the age of 14 under Bruce Jackson at Millpond Kennel in Rembert, South Carolina. Although he always trained his personal dogs and occasionally one or two others on the side he did not establish his kennel Palmetto Gun Dogs until 2009. Alan has trained numerous breeds for retriever work as well as obedience dogs. Alan has trained bomb detection dogs and has titled several hunt test dogs. Our main focus here at Palmetto Gun Dogs is to produce multi-purpose dogs that excel in the field as well as in the home. We offer boarding, obedience and retriever training. We train in realistic hunting scenarios (i.e. beaver ponds, flooded corn fields, sun flower fields, etc.).
