Jim Elam grew up in north central North Carolina in the small town of Warrenton. The abundance of quail and duck in the area naturally lead to the need for good hunting dogs. Jim's interest in dog training eventually became a passion. After twenty years in education and coaching, the passion became a career. Lake Country Retrievers was opened in 1998 and specializes in disciplined, hardworking hunting companions, as well as hunt test and field trial competitors. Jim has trained well over twenty master hunters and several Qualified All Age dogs.
