A Little About

Absolute Kennels

Absolute Retriever Kennels sits on a pristine 5 acre property on the North Thompson river. Our Address is 3945 OLD YELLOWHEAD HWY (OLD HWY 5). We are the big White House located on the south end of Rayleigh on the river.

Absolute Retriever Kennels is the only CKC Registered Kennel with in the Kamloops city limits. It takes just 13 minutes to drive from downtown Kamloops and 25 minutes from Sun Peaks.

Maureen Young is the owner and operator of Absolute Retriever Kennels. Maureen has over 35 years of experience training, competing, travelling and boarding dogs. Through the years Maureen noticed some dogs do not thrive in a conventional kennel environment. Dogs can become anxious and suffer while being boarded, even with close attention and play time. You can see the dog is not happy or comfortable.

For this reason Maureen has dedicated herself to creating Absolute Kennels. A place where dogs can roam free with professional supervision. For those caring owners Absolute offers two individual boarding programs.
