Hello, we are the Bice family and we run Mulberry Creek Kennels, located in Fortson, GA. We (Marcus and Shannon) have loved and worked with dogs since childhood, and continue to daily enjoy the gift of these wonderful animals.
After being married for a year, in 1989, we invested in a yellow Labrador Retriever, Kady, after Marcus was introduced to what is now a lifetime passion, duck hunting. Marcus, with the help of the UKC program, trained Kady to participate in hunt tests and to do her job of retrieving birds. Both trainer and trainee were successful and a passion for dog training took off.
Since then, we have successfully trained and titled many of our own dogs, and other people’s dogs, at all levels of both UKC and AKC programs. In 1995, Mulberry Creek Kennels began as a part-time family operation. Marcus realized the need for kennels when he started training other people’s dogs. In 1999, we moved to our current location and were able to expand the kennel operations. In 2006, after keeping friends’ dogs consistently while they were on vacation, we expanded to include the boarding part of MCK (Mulberry Creek Kennels), which offers a camp-like setting for the care of dogs.
