Four Rivers Kennel is located on 180 acres just south of the August A. Busch and Four Rivers Conservation area. The property boasts 9 technical ponds, a 6 acre duck slough, and both open and wooded areas, perfect for exercising the dogs.
During the day (weather permitting!), the dogs reside in fenced outside airing yards containing automatic waterers and shade. Our three kennel buildings are able to individually house 148 dogs, and contain automatic waterers, floor heat, exhaust fans, and HVAC systems for extreme temperatures. Of course, sometimes dogs end up retiring to the house. 🙂
Other facilities at the kennel include kitchen and laboratory areas, a bathing station, whelping facilities, and a separate area for our treadmill and calorimetry machine. We have also recently built a separate laboratory building exclusively for our immune function and cell culture work.
We love giving tours! Please contact us to come and view the facility in person.
