About us

Prairielight kennels are situated just West of Saskatoon on 80 acres. We, Hans and Margareta Berin, are the owners of the kennel name and the land where we have our home.

This is quite a rural area surrounded by alfalfa fields and natural prairie. We think it’s a great place for dogs and humans alike. There are no pesticides, there is clean water and lots of room for all of us to move around.

We have had Flat-Coated Retrievers since 1972 and bred our first litter in 1991.

Flat-coated Retriever

The Flat-coated Retriever is a very happy, outgoing dog that loves people. He is always eager to do things together with his owner. Somewhat slower to mature than other retrieving breeds he keeps his happy and playful outlook on life even when old.

He is easy to train and will enjoy any activity that is also enjoyed by his owner.
