Owners: Larry and Helen Heil


Rainwater Kennels was established in the early 1970’s and is the most prominent  full service kennel facility in the area.  Larry and Helen Heil, the current owners, purchased the business in 1993 and have continued to offer outstanding service and care for their customers’ pets, while adding new services and products to meet your needs.

For the hunters and nature watchers, we are located in south central Nebraska’s Rainwater Basin. The area is noted  for extraordinary amounts of waterfowl, Sandhill Cranes, Whooping Cranes and Pheasants, and is a shooter’s paradise for guns or cameras.

Our kennel is one of the largest pet care facility in Central Nebraska.  We offer dogs, cats, birds, pet care products, boarding, grooming, and guided hunts using our award winning dogs and guides.

We train and sell quality hunting, show, and pet quality dogs throughout the United States. We invite you to peruse some of our litters of quality dogs, and you may e-mail us with any questions you may have.

 Although we specialize in caring and training of dogs, we also have a wide variety of birds and cats and associated services and products. We have Ducks, Pheasants, Pigeons ($4 each).

 We have been raising quality Labradors and German Shorthairs for over 25 years. We selectively breed 2-4 litters per year. We have also added an occasional English Pointer litter. Our Breeding stock comes from proven quality hunting dogs that have Hunt Test or Field Trial pedigrees. We have all breeding stock OFA certified and guarantee all of our puppies
