Well-bred puppies are given a clean slate in life and have the best chance to live a long, happy, healthy life.

Golden Retrievers are wonderful family companions. They are happy, loyal, loving, intelligent and highly trainable dogs. As trainers, Golden Retrievers are one of our favorite breeds to work with!

Goldens are happiest when they’re with their people, and they excel as Service Dogs, Therapy Dogs, Family Pets and Hunting Dogs. We recommend starting their Socialization, Exposure and Obedience Training early on to set them up for success in life.
