| Our upcoming litters are listed on this page. Also listed are litters sired by our boys.
Our golden puppies are home whelped and raised. They undergo early neurological stimulation from days 3-16 as well as early scent discrimination exercises and are heavily socialized throughout their 7 weeks with us. Their time indoors is spent in an enriching environment learning to navigate obstacles and tunnels, as well as being introduced to children, adults, household pets, crates and all the sights and sounds of the home environment. We also have several "nanny" dogs who help socialize the pups to adult dogs other than their dam.
Outside we take the puppies for walks (weather and age permitting) on our 18 1/2 acres. They are introduced to water, different types of cover, birds, and all types of sounds. We introduce feathers at 3-4 weeks and live birds at 6 weeks of age. Our puppies have also been for a few car rides before they travel to their new homes.
Our puppies have had their toenails trimmed regularly while with us. They have been wormed and have been vaccinated before leaving us for their new homes. Puppies come with a health warranty and are sold on a contract. Serious inquiries from working homes are welcome. A deposit is required to reserve a puppy. Deposits are non-refundable unless we are unable to provide you with a puppy. We do not sell puppies to professional field trainers or to brood bitch homes.

"Shine" MACH2 Heads Up Shine On Crzy Diamond T2B, MXS, MJS, WC
Golden Retriever Agility Hall of Fame
Shine is a little dynamo ~ she is smart, fast, athletic and a ton of fun to train and trial. She has a wonderful temperament, loves people and is great with other dogs. She travels well and can easily adapt to any situation. Shine is very intelligent and willing, always eager to learn and work, but is oh-so-easy to have around. She is happy to cuddle on the couch, walk the neighborhood or tear it up on the agility course, just so long as she's with her people.
Shine finished her Master Agility Championship (MACH) in 11 months. With very limited fieldwork she easily qualified for her WC and she is ready to hit the fields this spring for her JH.
We look forward to all the future holds for this little dog ~ Shine On !
