No matter what it is you need your retriever to be, Backwater Cypress Retrievers can help you achieve that.  Located in North Central Arkansas on 100’s of acres of fields, woods, and ponds, Backwater Cypress Retrievers works tirelessly to get the most from our dogs.

Young Dixie’s First Hunt Test

Owner and trainer Chris Yielding has been training labs for years.  His love of the dogs shines through in his training and in how the dogs perform under his guidance.  His dogs hunt and train hard, are obedient, and love to retrieve.

Working on Casting Drill

Chris trains at least 5 days a week, building each training session based on the previous training session, working to build up the dogs’ skills each session.
