Our History

Barb and JerryJaybar Retrievers was founded in the 1980’s to develop a sound working retriever that meets the breed standard in confirmation and temperament. Our original location in Metamora, MI was ideal for raising and training retrievers to their full potential. In 1989 we added a boarding and grooming facility that housed all breeds of dogs, cats and exotics under the name of Whistle Lake Pet Resort in Metamora, MI. In 2005, we sold the boarding and grooming operation and moved further north in Lapeer County to the small town of North Branch where we continue to raise, train and compete with our Labrador Retrievers. We continue to actively judge field trials in both the U.S. and Canada. Training a dog to compete competitively in Retriever Field Trials requires endless hours of training and, of course, the right dog. We pride ourselves in the fact that we have trained our own dogs with very limited use of professional trainers.
