Pinewood Kennels, previously known as Thundering Paws, has been in business for more than 25 years! Dustin and Lisa took over the kennel in 2017. Dustin was a K9 handler for the Wahpeton Police Department for 10 years before retiring in 2019. Lisa still serves the community with the Wahpeton Police Department but animals are her passion. You will see many animals around here – including chickens, cats, and horses!
Dustin and Lisa have a daughter, Cadence, who is often seen helping in the kennel and showing off the various animals around the property. Pinewood Kennels has been a true passion project and could not be done without the help and support from our family!
