Breeding Golden Retrievers is our passion, through selective breeding, with choice Stud’s and Bitches, we believe in the quality of our puppies. We only have 2 to 3 litters a year, and only 1 litter at a time, we are about quality, not quantity. Our dog’s live with us, they are part of our lives and family. They share our house and I have to confess sometimes our beds. We don’t use kennels or cages, our dogs have free run of the yard and live together year round. Above all they give us great happiness and laughter. In turn we give them total devotion and love that they are entitled to. We, take into account the individual personality of each one and making sure that they have a serene and balanced life. Each one of our dogs have OFA, CERF, Penn hip or BVA certifications. These are Hip, Elbow, Eyes and Heart clearance that no Golden should be without. Also we have started checking for PRA -1- 2 – 3 and Ichthyologist. These are test for the eyes and a skin disorder. As a responsible breeder we will not breed any golden that does not have the same certifications. Because of our screening we fill that we can offer a health guarantee, so a 2 year Health Guarantee for hips, elbows, heart and eyes on each pup .
When the puppies are born — It’s the same story of course, it is not an easy affair. After having paid a lot of attention and care to mom in order to assure that the puppies are healthy and strong at birth. We feed mom a special diet to ensure the health of the mother and the puppies. We want to insure the natural gifts of this marvelous breed are healthy and try to reduce any possibilities of genetic defects. The birth of our puppies is always celebrated with huge enthusiasm all around. Our puppies are born and bred in our home and each one being a lucky recipient of a greatest amount of love, care and attention on behalf of our entire family and friends. Socialization of our puppies start from the first day of their birth and continues through their adoption to their new family at 8 weeks.
Our goal is to breed healthy, well balanced retrievers for everyone to love and enjoy. Remember a puppy will be around to love for 10 to 14 or more years, so be sure you are ready to devote the love, care and the human companionship this breed needs and thrive’s on. They will be the love of your life.
