Well summer time has returned and the dogs are back in the ponds! The old man Yoda is just hanging out cooling! Grace is waiting on me to throw something into the pond for her to chase. The white pup Boateng ain't quite got brave enough yet to jump in but he's thinking about it!
My name is Ryan Strickland and my wife Anita and I fell in love with the white dog, "Ziva" on the our dogs page. I found an older male "Yoda" and brought him home and we talked it over and decided to branch out Strickland's Kennels into NE Cape Fear GSD. Strickland's Kennels was a working retriever kennels that bred, raised, trained, and hunt tested retriever. We bred Golden and Chesapeake Bay Retriever since the early 1990's. I still train a retriever every so often for myself as a hunting dog or for a special client. We've been breeding and raising dogs since 1993.
