Meet The Silverbrook Team

At Silverbrook Kennels, we are committed to treating our furry guests like family. Our staff, many of whom have been with us for many years, are specially trained to provide your pets with care and attention they need to feel at home during their stay.

Trish Jagoda

Trish Jagoda founded Silverbrook Kennels over 40 years ago. Dogs have always been a huge part of her life. As a young girl, she would spend time with her father and brother teaching her pets various new tricks and discovered her special connection with dogs. As she deepened her understanding and ability to communicate with them, she began to train gundogs. Under her leadership, many of her dogs have gone on to win a plethora of awards, become titled Master Hunters, and have earned a place in the AKC Hall of Fame. After her father’s passing, she decided to focus more on her life’s passion of caring for dogs, and thus began Silverbrook Kennels.

Trish now focuses on breeding high quality Labrador Retrievers and serves as an advocate and ambassador for sporting dogs as an AKC Executive Field Representative (the first female to hold that position). She always believed that dogs staying at Silverbrook should be cared for and loved as if they were her own. Silverbrook still honors that belief today. Trish’s legacy of excellence at Silverbrook is about trying to understand a dog at their level, so we can provide them the best service, whether it be for their training, boarding, or even just a daycare visit with us.

The grounds are so nice and our dogs seemed to enjoy themselves (and smelled quite lovely from their pre-pickup baths). Kato and Sydney give Silverbrook their tail wags of approval.— Lindsay C.
