  Long Hollow Retrievers is a full service Gun Dog Training Program in Ellensburg Washington specialized in AKC Hunt Tests for Retrievers and all levels of Gun Dog Training.  Long Hollow Retrievers is owned and operated by Ryan and Traci Fortier. We are family owned and operated and we take great pride in the experience necessary to adapt to the learning styles of each individual in order to bring out the best in each dog and their owner. We are a service oriented kennel that understands the wide variety of goals and expectations of each individual and their dog.  Our job is to help you set realistic goals and then to assist in training you and your companion to become a cohesive team in and out of the field and the duck blind.  Ryan's vast experience over 20 years, upland bird hunting, waterfowl hunting, pointing dog training, retriever training, NSTRA field trialing, AKC hunt tests and training APLA Grand Master Pointing Retrievers as well as AKC Master National Qualifiers... Including his experience coaching baseball and raising children are just a few of the things that have allowed him to compile the experience, knowledge and patience that makes him the perfect mentor for you and your dog.  

The same high standards and attention to detail in our training program has been passed on into our breeding program of AKC field bred Labrador Retrievers.  Whether you are looking for an award winner or just great companion, Long Hollow Retrievers is happy to help!  Our pups have served many house holds in many different ways, From Field Trial Dogs, AKC Master Hunters, Upland Bird Dogs, Duck Dogs, Agility Trial Dogs and Companions, to Search & Rescue and Service dogs (diabetes & seizure detection) and more...
