Our Story

1992…Wow, What a year! I Bought my first home and in the country, of all places! Three acres on a quiet road. Amy, my then 8 year old daughter and I were surrounded by fields and woods. All that nature… We wanted to feel more secure and protected so, like many people do, we decided to get a dog. “Lady”, a golden retriever, joined our family.

Far from being a guard dog, she was a loyal companion and best friend. She brought us such joy as she chased birds, swam in nearby lakes and walked endlessly along with us. She loved going for rides in the car, too. Her tail was always wagging and her eyes gleaming.

She was such a terrific dog we decided to breed her. At the time, though, we had no clue about breeding or… puppies. Sixty days later we began learning quickly with 13 beautiful bundles of fur. We found wonderful homes for every one. I enjoyed this experience so much that I decided to breed golden retrievers professionally. I wanted to learn about the breed and how to responsibly produce the best quality retriever pups I could.

I began joining retriever clubs and associations to gather information and network with others interested in this terrific breed of dogs. Now 30+ years later I am more informed, and interested in the Golden Retriever Breed than ever. I now have several confirmation and hunting titles as a result of these associations. We’re also very proud to have had several of our dogs become therapy companions for the young, handicapped, and elderly.

Please get in touch if you have any questions. We’re looking forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you may have about this amazing breed.

Why choose a Golden Retriever?

Whether it's for their loyalty or loving personality, Golden Retrievers are adored by their owners.

Loving

Golden Retrievers love their owners, and they show it in everything they do, from greeting you at the door to sitting at your feet.

Loyal

Although Golden Retrievers are friends to everyone, they’re still amazingly loyal to their families, and will always put you first.

Hunting

Golden Retrievers are excellent hunting dogs, especially with birds (that's how they earned the word "retriever" in their name).

Comfort

Having a Golden Retriever is like having your own personal therapist on call 24 hours a day. These intuitive dogs seem to know when you’re upset and need a hug.

Multi-Pet Friendly

Some dog breeds don’t "play nicely" when it comes to other pets, but Golden Retrievers are generally happy to share their home with others.

Exercise

Goldens love to run and play, so being a Golden parent often gives us that extra nudge to get outdoors, keeping us more fit and healthy.
