April wasn’t the month she was born, that was March, it wasn’t the month she came to us, that was May, rather it was the name we chose for our first Toller. Thus KijabeWinds Kennel was established in 2000 with Westerlea’s Alderlane April (2000-2014) Believing first that she was our pet, our family welcomed April as a companion but we looked forward to her passing the required health clearances to become our foundation bitch. Seventeen years later we have just produced our 5th generation of Kijabewinds dogs…to put it in biblical terms, April begat Storm, Storm begat Ella, Ella begat Aero, Aero begat Merry and Bright (December 2016)
Believing in keeping our home kennel small (two dogs as a rule, one breeding, one retired) we co-own our potential breeding dogs ensuring they have tons of love and attention in their forever homes while we work together for a breeding plan. Although many of our dogs go to pet homes, we are always looking for homes that will work with us in showing, competing in agility or obedience and especially working out in the field.

Located in Black Creek on Vancouver Island, B.C., our small scale kennel is focused on producing this healthy sporting breed for people wanting to adopt a diverse companion. As a family pet they can keep their owners active being involved in agility, field or as a gun dog for the hunter. Dam and Sire are both required to pass a full regiment of health clearances as per the ethics of the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever (NSDTR) Club of Canada.
