Tom and I have had Goldens since 1972, back when people would ask us if our first male Golden was "part Irish Setter"? Back when there were many people who didn't even know what a Golden Retriever was! We've been hooked on them ever since.
In that time, we've had ten goldens. We currently have five female goldens; we lost our Abbi at 12 in 2013. We have two of Abbi's daughters, Chime (12 years old and from the Music litter) and Kerri (10 years old and from the Irish litter), and Chime's daughter Diamond from our Gemstone litter. We recently added Scotti from the Scottish Litter and Chili from the Spice Litter.
We are a small hobby breeder in Michigan striving to produce healthy Goldens with proper temperament, sound structure, and great work ethic. We have a litter every one to two years. All our puppies are raised in our home with early neurological and scent stimulation and socialization.
I compete with my dogs in agility, obedience, rally, and field work. Tom does upland game hunting with all of them.
