Meglyn Retrievers

Labrador Retrievers
All-breed Retriever Obedience, Gun Dog and Hunt Test Training


Pointing dog training beginning 1971

Chevy, HR Meglyn's Silverado Slim SH, Jan. 8, 2002-July 20, 2006. I miss ya, buddy.
They try so hard to please us and all they ask for in return is a scratch behind the ear or a duck now and then.

See us and our great new training facility between Johnstown and New Albany, Ohio at Meglyn Retrievers on Facebook! And visit us at for complete information on all of our training programs. With over 90 years of training experience, we're not just about retrievers.

Getting a puppy for Christmas or have you learned during the hunting season that your hunting buddy needs a bit more training?

Are you having to tie him to a tree so he won't break when the ducks are coming in?

Did you have to wade 300 yards through the marsh because your dog didn't see the duck fall and doesn't understand blind retrieves?

Make your reservations now for training with Meglyn Retrievers this coming year.


Meglyn Retrievers is a professional retriever training kennel with over 27 years of retriever training experience (since 1987) near Columbus, Ohio.  Prior to that, Meglyn raised, trained, showed and field trialed German shorthaired pointers beginning in 1970.
At Meglyn Retrievers, I am dedicated to providing the best possible training for your retriever, whether you are interested in having a top flight gun dog for hunting or are interested in competing in both AKC and HRC hunt tests.  I also provide hunt test handling services if you desire.
On occasion, I have puppies available.
