Welcome to our website. Please look around and enjoy.


My name is Cheryl Kistner and I am a Flat-Coated Retriever aficionado from the United States. I have been an owner of Flat-Coated Retrievers since 1985 and got my start on the working side of the breed. I have owned quite a few of the breed – at least 10 dogs since 1985. I have shown dogs since 1982, as I started with a Golden Retriever in obedience. I have titled my dogs in conformation, field, agility, tracking and obedience. Four of my dogs are in the US Flat-Coat Society Hall of Fame. I used to train and show my dogs mostly myself but now need some help but I am committed to maintaining the Flat-Coat as a show and working dog.

My introduction to the breed was a wonderful little Flat-Coat named Am and Can CH U-UD Grousemoor Periwinkle Am UDTX WCX SH Can UDT WCX. She was everything you could hope for in a Flat-Coat – pretty, companionable, healthy and a good worker. She died at one month shy of 12 years old.

I was the Treasurer for the Flat-Coated Retriever Society of America for 4 years and was a member of the Health Committee. I am currently Treasurer for the Flat-Coated Retriever Foundation and have been since its’ inception. The Flat-coated Retriever Foundation is a funding committee for health & rescue projects exclusive to the Flat-coated Retriever.

I co-bred my first litter in 1999 with the help and advice of a respected and established breeder, Helen Szostak of Grousemoor Retrievers. Kistryl Retrievers was born with my second litter in 2001. I co-bred my third litter in Dec 2005 with Marilyn Wilcox. Marilyn has been in the breed since 1997 and is very concerned about working ability too. Prior to Flat-Coats, Marilyn had Golden Retrievers and German Short-haired Pointers. Marilyn is a member of FCRSA and served on the health committee. She was previously vice-president and membership secretary for the Flat-coated Retriever Club of Illinois. We were both founding members of FCRCI.

We live on 4 acres in a Chicago suburb and enjoy living with several flat-coats, training them and occasionally breeding a litter. We also have a beautiful Long Haired Standard Dachshund named Rosey...
