We are located in northern California.   We share our home with goldens and kitties!   Our home is located on a few acres of land with a fenced in yard and pool for our goldens to swim.   Golden Retrievers are our love and passion.  We enjoy sharing our everyday lives with our Goldens and are working towards improving this wonderful breed.  We have selected only top quality goldens with wonderful pedigrees that have many champions in their lines.  Gracie (International/National Junghund Champion Thevenet Amazing Grace) we imported her from Spain - she has many wonderful champion goldens in her family background.   Gracie's Sire is "Hippito"/Ch. Thevenet Lord of the Rings who is owned by Santiago Gadea Castro/Thevenet kennels located in Spain.  We are very thankful to Santi for allowing us to own and love our gorgeous Gracie girl.  Unfortunately, Gracie did not pass her cerf eye examination required for breeding so she has been spayed.   We have a new little addition to our 'pack' her official pedigree name is Dailuaine From Me to You or as we call her Lexi.  Thank you to her breeder Christine Bugiel, Dailuaine Kennel in Germany for this adorable little girl, she has stolen our hearts already

Our boy Asti, also comes from many wonderful champions in his pedigree.  He is also a Pet Partners Certified Therapy Dog and has earned his Canine Good Citizenship.  Our dogs are part of our family and their puppies will be raised in our home with us at all time and given plenty of love, early socialization, veterinary care, and the attention they will need to develop into happy, outgoing, well socialized members of your family.   Health is our top priority.   Before we breed a litter both parents will have to pass their OFA hips, elbows, and heart tests, and CERF eyes test.   We do Optigen DNA Testing as well.   We are committed to doing everything possible to improve this breed we love so much and to breed only healthy dogs that will give the best chance of producing healthy, happy puppies.


Temperament is also a key trait to consider before planning a litter.  We will only breed dogs with sound temperaments that are true to the typical European English Golden Retriever temperament:  sweet, friendly, intelligent, confident, outgoing, and good with children of all ages.   Within the breed, personalities are all different.   Some puppies have higher energy levels than others, as we see that even between our two goldens Asti and Gracie.   Asti is more relaxed and calm tempered and Gracie is full of energy, very inquisitive and curious.  They are both wonderful examples of the breed and are very intelligent, confident, and sweet tempered.   I have included on my website some details of their training successes as therapy dogs well as dog show achievements on the Show News page.


Socialization is very important to us, especially early socialization.  We have worked extensively with our dogs when they were puppies to socialize them very early from the moment they joined our family.  When our puppies first joined our home, they could only come out with us out to puppy safe places; like riding in my shopping cart at Lowe's or walking around the shopping plaza sidewalks greeting new people and meeting our friend's dogs that we knew were up to date on their vaccinations and very healthy so we had weekly puppy play dates and invited our friend's doggies over to meet and socialize our new puppies in their safe environment. First, we had to keep in mind to protect their health until they completed their full set of puppy vaccinations.  Once they finished all of their puppy vaccinations at 16 weeks of age, we brought them with us everywhere they were allowed, the dog walking trail which was great for socializing them to other dogs and many different people, the dog beach, car rides,  Lowe's and Home Depot, they accompanied us on our family vacation trips, came with us to the pet store, bank, and of course their weekly puppy training classes.  We believe early socialization prepares puppies for the everyday world we live in and it is a high priority to make sure all of our future puppies are well socialized to this great big wonderful world.


We encourage you and your family to come meet us and our dogs in person.  We would like to meet you and want for you to meet our dogs.   We are located in California. We have plans to breed only Golden Retrievers with sound temperaments, early socialization, top pedigrees, and who have passed all of their health clearances. We want to be sure we produce the best puppies in conformity, temperament and health.
