We are a small and very selective breeder of the highest quality Golden Retrievers that have superior health and dispositions, genetic diversity, intelligence and trainability.  Our goal is to raise these amazing golden retrievers that can be more than just  pets - they can make a dramatic difference in people's lives. We  breed selectively and handle pups daily, raising them in our home, following a very specific program  that will help to develop those qualities that will make them better able to withstand stress, be attuned to their family's needs, and be well prepared for future therapy work, service work, or scent work  for many years if so desired.  We use a combination of Puppy Culture protocol, Biosensor (Early Neurological Stimulation), Superstar Dog Program, and Early Scent Introductions.  WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT:  We PROVE the temperament of our breeding dogs by certifying or testing them in some official way - whether that be for therapy work (most of them are working therapy dogs!), or achieving an AKC title such as the Canine Good Citizen title (CGC).  We also work on early training with our puppies - starting with clicker training and luring with food to get them into positions for sit, down, and stand.  They are also well started on leash work and crate training, as well as learning to potty outside.  All at NO EXTRA CHARGE.  We are also in the process of developing "Next level" training programs for families that want puppies with a little further training in obedience, socialization, and/or preparation for therapy or service work - this additional training and time past 9 weeks will incur an additional fee, and we will only reserve 1 or 2 spots for this training per litter.  Please ask if you are interested in this!  We work very hard to produce puppies that should  make exceptional pets and even future therapy, service, or show dogs!    Let us know how we can help you with one of these AMAZING animals!

We complete all health tests recommended for the breed - OFA cardiac clearance (with echo), OFA hips and elbows, OFA yearly eye exams, as well as complete DNA or genetic testing to identify diseases that golden retrievers are at risk for.  Our clearances are all published online in databases for verification.  We are working diligently to improve the breed, breed to the golden retriever standard for conformation and temperament, and breed dogs that enrich the lives of their families.  Our mission is to produce puppies that can go on to lead long, productive lives, either working or just loving their families!

Scarlett has big shoes to fill, but we are confident that she has all of the same wonderful qualities as her momma, Hope!!   She has a strong retrival drive combined with a good aptitude for scent tracking.  Her puppies are proving to be great at sensing people's needs and training easily for therapy work!  She's a marvelous example of the english golden standard, being shorter and stockier (weighing 65 ish lbs), awesome, HEAVY bone, pretty head and round eyes.  She is obedient and trainable and just so, so smart. She is very sweet and and loves people and other dogs.  She is our family dog, and she gets loads of attention and spends most of her days directly interacting with us (and their puppies do too!)   We could not have asked for a better example of what we strive to breed for - HEALTH, DISPOSITION, INTELLIGENCE, BEAUTY, LONGEVITY AND WORK ETHIC!  We would love nothing better than to be able to provide others with exceptional dogs that will be part of the family and enjoy working as therapy or service animals for many years (or competing in agility, or conformation, or whatever else you can think to teach them : ))
