"In 1992 we bought a wonderful golden puppy from Sally Cobb in San Diego. Our Pippin was everything a Golden should be." - Rebecca G.
"What's more gratifying than the blue ribbons, is the attention he gets wherever we go. It's especially wonderful to have other Golden people and the professional handlers complement him. More important than his looks though, is that he loves everybody and he is rock solid with other dogs." - Kristen B.
"The vet says our puppy is perfect and she gave many compliments to you as a breeder. She says he has beautiful movement, a beautiful head, clear eyes, clean ears, good teeth, great disposition, is calm and comfortable being handled, good weight, great coat. He is such a good boy". - Candace G.
"Our puppy gets so many compliments. Everyone just falls in love with him and comments on how gorgeous he is. He is gentle with kids and loves to play hard with the older folks. We get asked all the time where we got him from. He is very healthy and we are so in love with him". - Sharon O.
"I don't know your secret for raising great puppies, but Kali is the most wonderful puppy! I can't tell you how much we appreciate all the time you spent with us, online and in person, throughout this process. We feel so fortunate to have found you when we were looking for a puppy". - Sharon & Jeff S.
"Our Brody is the most loving and sweetest dog I've ever known." - Diane C.
"The vet adores Cali and can’t seem to say enough wonderful things about her. She says she is the most gorgeous true Golden she’s ever seen in her practice, and her practice has been around for a while". - Lisa B.
"Rose has finished her first set of conformation classes. She was so excited to get to class. She loved the dogs, owners and teachers. She has a natural free-stack, beautiful side-gait, rear-gait, and topline. Rose is also very easy to hand-off to others. It was well-worth the trip to San Diego to get her". - Rebecca G.
"Sally, Wolffe was just standing there looking at me this morning with her loving eyes and wagging tail. Kelly and I agree that she is the sweetest dog we have ever met. Thank you so much." - Curtis M.
Our Goldens are family members and they live in our home. The breed was developed to stay by the hunter's side, and as such, Goldens depend on continual human guidance and relationship. Our puppies are raised in the living area of our home where they are socialized and introduced to a variety of people, activities, and noises of daily life. We complete the Early Neurological Stimulation on days 3-16.
By the time they go to their forever homes at 8 weeks, our puppies are litter-box trained, comfortable in crates, bathing, grooming, weighing, nail trims, have been exposed to a variety of people, scents, foods, noises, have had collar & leash training, car rides, and they understand basic commands. Each puppy is examined by a licensed veterinarian, is given their first Parvo & Distemper vaccination, and is dewormed.
I grew up with Goldens, assisting with whelpings, raising litters, with the breeder of SunGlo Golden Retrievers who was also president of the L.A. Golden Retriever Club. My husband and I later raised our children with Goldens. As a preservation breeder, I focus on health and longevity, breeding dogs that have all clearances and good potential for a long healthy life. I strive to produce beautiful, intelligent, versatile, biddable, athletic puppies with great temperaments. As well as being wonderful family companions, Goldens love to work and they need two-three hours of daily physical exercise. Many of our puppies have earned titles including CGC, TKN, TKI, CD, Obedience, Rally, Agility, Therapy, Service Dog, Conformation Champion, Show Dog Hall of Fame, Working Dog, Tracking, and Field.
Bear Valley Goldens is in good standing with the GRCSDC (Golden Retriever Club of San Diego County), the AKC, and the GRCA (Golden Retriever Club of America).
