Holzinger Kennels - about us
Terry Holzinger, owner and head trainer of Holzinger Kennels has been professionally raising and training gun dogs since 1982.

In the spring of 1982, Terry started his dog training internship with Tom Dokken, owner of Oak Ridge Kennels. He worked with Tom for two years, branched off on his own, and has been professionally training ever since. Terry customizes training programs to maximize the full potential of the gun dog. By working with the natural drive and instincts, Terry gives the customer a top quality-hunting companion trained to the level requested. Countless dogs have gone on to acquire placements and titles at all levels of local, state and national hunt tests and up-land hunting competitions.

Terry has been a Senior and a Master judge for AKC and has been involved with AKC and NAHRA since the beginning of the hunt tests. He was a judging instructor for NSTRA from 1994 until 1999. Terry is one of the founding members of Lake Country Retriever Club. It was established in 1985 and is now one of the largest retriever clubs in the U.S.

Terry enjoys training top quality dogs that excel at all levels of gundog training. He has been breeding Labrador Retrievers since 1987. He became involved with a breeding program so other people can enjoy a top quality dog. The key to getting the best all-around hunting and family companion is the quality of the genetics carefully bred into the dog. Many Holzinger Kennel bred dogs return for training with Terry and this provides first hand knowledge of their strengths and weaknesses, which enhances our breeding program.

Holzinger Kennels is located on 700 acres of prime hunting and training grounds at the prestigious Minnesota Horse and Hunt Club in Prior Lake. The Club is located 30 minutes south of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
