BIOGRAPHY

Owner and head trainer Marty Roberts began training retrievers in 1981 at the age of 17 after receiving a puppy for Christmas.
Marty was instantly curious. Marty knew duck hunting. He had been hunting the flooded timber of East Arkansas with his father and mentor Johnny "Cuz" Tartera for as ling as he could remember, having a retriever would make things complete.
He named the puppy "Jimbob," and so began a lifelong passionate pursuit of raising, training, and hunting retrievers.

Following that Christmas and beyond Marty trained as an amateur. I wasn’t until the opportunity to purchase a farm in Oxford, Mississippi that his passion became reality. Marty and his wife Molly Francis Roberts grabbed on with both hands, built a kennel, traveled to Ireland, made contacts in England and Scotland, and dove in with all they had.

“It’s been a joy building relationships with clients from all over the world. The fulfillment my wife and I have received from this life and these amazing animals is truly irreplaceable.”

Located in Oxford, Mississippi SLK’s sits on a beautiful 42-acre farm consisting of three training lakes, two large hay fields and plenty of woods — each very important to properly train a quality gun dog.

The kennel facility has 5 x 15 indoor/outdoor heated and cooled runs and a half-acre airing yard. Marty strongly believes happy dogs are better dogs, so each is let out 4-5 times a day and given the freedom to explore, relieve themselves and play.

No two dogs are alike and the training programs at SLK's are designed that way — to fit each dog as an individual. They also believe no two families are alike and each has their own specific desires and needs. So, you tell them what you'd like to see in your gun dog and they will personalize the program to fit those needs.
