Who we are...

Patrick and Michelle Rodgers became the new operating partners of West Wind Kennels on November 1st, 2021. Married in 1991 and raising their son, Hayden, they have been active members in the Spokane area for many years. 

Patrick served in the US Air Force for over 20 years, and Michelle is a Finance Assistant for the Spokane Valley Fire Department for the last 15 years. The Rodgers are an avid outdoors family who love to camp, hunt and fish and most importantly, they are a dog family: Hoss, a male chocolate lab, Lucy, a yellow female lab and Taw, a black lab pup. So much so, that Patrick is actually one of the top professional retriever trainers in the Pacific Northwest with over 37 years as the owner of Eloika Ridge Retriever Training.
