I have been raising Golden's since 1998. I live on a 135 acre farm where I have been breeding and raising my Golden Retrievers. I LOVE the versatility of the Golden's. I have also raised Warmblooded Horses. I enjoy the country living and the room for my dogs to run!! It's wonderful to see that my children can enjoy the fun of raising and taking care of the puppies. I breed mainly for the family pet quality ,but I do have Champions and Hunters in the background pedigree's of our Golden's. I believe in only feeding the best natural dog food for my dogs! They are all part of our family,they all live in the house and Yes, they really do love to sleep on the couch and share the beds with us!! My breeding ethics follow the requirements that is required from the AKC and CKC. My females weigh's are between 68-76 lbs and my males are between 74-80lbs. They have medium length hair and typically range in color from Cream to Dark golden. I breed for a calm disposition, and have trained for obedience, therapy and service dog abilities. My dogs are certified for hips,elbows, heart and DNA on file, as well as other clients females that are also required to have their certifications. My dogs could be shown at an AKC or CKC show, but the majority of families who have adopted a puppy from me are looking for a healthy all-around family dog, which is good with children and other pets. Many customers have been returning to purchased their second dog from me,since I started breeding in 1998. I believe this is due in largely to the factor of trying to keep in touch with all the owners that have adopted a puppy from me,and I'm always available for help or questions that arise in the future, in raising your puppy. I do allow visits for anyone who wants to come and meet us!!!
