About

Building Champions One Retriever at a Time


Thank you for visiting Moss Bend Retrievers! We are a full-service training facility located in Grimesland, NC. We specialize in training competitive retrievers and gundogs, and we compete in AKC hunt tests, field trials, and Super Retriever Series (SRS) events.

A working retriever should be obedient in the field but excited about the task at hand. That is why our training philosophy revolves around working with your dog’s natural abilities, talents, and desires to help them reach their maximum potential while working towards the goals you have for your pet. We train one-on-one with you and your dog so you can work together as a team.

Training Facilities

Our training grounds and facilities are some of the best in the country, with ponds and a terrain designed to accommodate dogs. Additionally, our kennels are outdoor/indoor climate-controlled, clean, safe, and comfortable with a vet on call 24 hours a day.

What Sets Us Apart

Whether your goal is to have a family companion, hunting dog, or competitive retriever, we offer several training options to meet you and your specific needs. We accept dogs of all ages, ranging from eight-week-old puppies and up.

At this time, we would like to thank all our past and present clients for their continued support and contributions to the sport and animals we love. Please feel free to contact us if we can train your next fireside conversation piece or gun dog, or if you have any general questions.
