Riverview Farm Kennel is located in the scenic hills of Franklin, Tennessee. We have over 400 acres where our dogs train, with open fields and hills, wooded areas and water, including the beautiful Harpeth River.
In addition to Riverview Farm, we have training grounds in southern Tennessee, Kentucky and Florida, totally over 20,000 acres for hunting and training. Each location provides a unique setting for the dogs, from the waterfowl in Kentucky to the quail in Florida.
At home in the kennel, we have space for more than 80 dogs. Our kennels are specifically designed for the security and well-being of the dogs, and equipped with TVs – for their entertainment ;) And – our kennels are immaculately clean, with our impeccable sanitizing regimen every day, 365.
We have ten, very large, fenced in yards where the dogs can play and relax. Each yard is designated for a different group based on age, gender, and level of activity.
The dogs are surrounded by wildlife, as well as horses, ducks, geese, goats, and even a few bald eagles who fly over occasionally and fish from the river. Riverview Farm truly is a dog’s dream.
Across the pond, we have training grounds in Scotand where our best stud dogs are trained on different terrains to ensure we are staying on the top of the game also in Europe.
Each year, several of our dogs make the trip back to the UK to work with our trainer, Kevin Haynes.
We are fortunate to have over 15,000 acres in central Florida where we breed and hunt some of the best Pointers you will find anywhere in the country. The Ranch also offers us the opportunity to “pick up” quail shot over our Pointers with our British Labradors. Our Labradors are an essential part of this hunting, as we would loose lots of shot birds without them hunting the rough cover over and over again.
Kentucky offers us 3.000 acres of waterfowl hunting, which has some of the best duck hunting there. Waterfowling in Kentucky has everything from hunting sloughs, flooded timber, fields, strip pits, ponds, rivers or the big lakes. This is the perfect setting for our dogs to do what they are bred for.
In Cornersville our Foxhounds are based. The grounds there offer us also endless beautiful training abilities from water to hills with little valleys and beautiful woodland.
To ensure we are staying on the top of the game we are sending several of our dogs every year back to the UK to compete in field trials against the best of the best. The dogs who make the trip back to the UK are staying with our trainer Kevin Haynes. Our own grounds in the beautiful Scotland enable Kevin to train our dogs to the highest standards.
