About Pickerel Pups

A Little More About Us...

Pickerel Pups- A small, family-owned operation. We are Kate and Craig Kleindl, and we raise Doodles, Golden Retrievers, Bernese Mountain Dogs and AKC Standard Poodles in our West Central Minnesota home. Our dogs live right here with us on our 10-acre property where they have lots of room to run, play and swim in the lake or romp in the snow (depending on the time of year). 


We love all of our dogs and spend plenty of quality time playing with them both in and outside of our home. This way, we are sure to know all about their temperaments, personalities, little quirks, likes and dislikes. 


We welcome any questions or comments. Please reach out to us at

Our Philosophy & Mission

Learning the ins and outs of breeding healthy dogs, is a priority for us. Healthy babies come from happy, healthy parents. Our dogs are health tested genetically and physically to guarantee the healthiest puppies. We also make sure our puppies are up to date on their vaccinations, are de-wormed and have an embark registration when they are leaving for their new homes.
