Hi! I've been a hobby breeder of this line of Golden Retrievers for 40 years and strive for the best in temperament, intelligence and trainability, good health and correctness to the Standard, for dogs that are beautiful and a joy to live with. Originally interested in obedience showing, my dogs attained multiple obedience titles with ease and very high scores. One of my girls got all three titles ( C.D., C.D.X., U.D. ) in just 10 shows ( you need to qualify in 3 diff. shows for each title)!! Her qualifying scores were all between 190-200 with all first place ribbons & 1 high in trial !! Since I had never gone to an obedience class, but just trained her in my back yard with a book from the library, and she was the first dog I trained for U.D., it really shows her intelligence and willingness to please, which has continued down thru the generations. Becoming certified as Therapy Dogs, I took them to nursing homes and a home for severely mentally retarded children. For many years now I have donated pups to C.C.I. and Leader Dogs For The Blind. ( See Butler Eagle newspaper- Mon. April 13, 2009- Focus section ) Pups are also donated to Paws With A Cause & Susquhanna Service Dogs ( wheelchair handicapped, deaf, veterans & autistic children ).
The parents of my litters are OFA certified for hips, elbows, eyes & heart. They come from Champion, Obedience, and Therapy Dog lines. The pups are born (hand delivered - I'm in the whelping box assisting mom), loved and raised indoors in my kitchen as part of my family and are used to household activities. They also have access to a Fla. room with its own dog door opening to a fenced yard so are used to the outdoors as well. Pups come with copies of parents OFA certifications,AKC reg.,9 generation pedigree, 2 year health guarantee, are UTD on shots & worming, started on housebreaking & simple commands, and been bathed & blowdryed. I remain available for any training tips, concerns, etc. for your pups life. While on vacation your pup can "vacation" here with parents & cousins.
Visits welcome anytime!
