Caney Creek Kennels, owned by TJ and Melanie Milberger, is located on an 180 turf farm and cattle ranch along the banks of Caney Creek in Van Vleck, Texas - just one hour south of Houston and a few hours away from Austin, San Antonio, and Corpus Christi.
We both grew up in families that raised English Labrador Retriever puppies, and in 2004 got our first American Labrador Retriever. Since 2006 we have been breeding American Labradors to produce happy, healthy, and loving puppies that are wonderful family pets and excellent hunting companions. In 2009, after getting our first Miniature Dachshund, we decided to add AKC registered Miniature Dachshunds to our breeding program!
Melanie has extensive knowledge and experience in the animal industry. After earning her B.S in Agriculture with a major in Pre-Veterinary Animal Science in 2008, she worked as a veterinary technician for 3 years and taught veterinary and animal science courses for 2 years.
TJ keeps up with our dog's professional training at the ponds and in the fields while hunting. He ensures that all puppies are introduced to dove and/or teal wings, water, and loud noises before going to their forever homes.
