Our "breeding practice"

We breed only a few times a year.
Our aim in breeding is to produce the perfect golden in type and temperment. We breed only animals with OFA hips, elbow,heart clearances and  CERF eye clearance. All pet puppies are sold on a limited AKC registration basis and a spay neuter contract. Females to be spayed after one to two heats and males not before a year.


Contact Us for next litter due.

Goldens love everyone!  Children, adults, family members, friends and strangers. 
Their best friend of the moment is anyone willing to pet, cuddle or play with them.
They are drawn to people in need, especially those who are ill or sad.
They are loyal and they simply have a great big heart with room enough for all!

   Puppy Reservation Process and Information

  • Contact me either by e-mail or phone 623 465 7245 and arrange to visit.

  • We require $200 deposit when you get on our list and another $600 deposit when the pups are born.(non refundable)  Our companion puppies are sold for $2000 . Contracts are signed when the puppy goes home.

  • A copy of our contract is included in the information packet which I will email you, so that you may read it carefully and ask any questions you may have.

  • You will be put on my waiting list when I have approved your questionnaire ,visited & paid the $200 deposit. (non refundable) 

  • Please note: While we will try our very best to get you a puppy from the litter you are interested in, being put on the waiting list does not guarantee you will receive a puppy from a particular litter. There are simply to many variables involved in placing puppies to promise anyone a particular puppy from a particular litter. Things such as litter size, how many show puppies are in a litter, sex of the puppies available etc. are simply a few of the variables. In some cases, especially with small litters their may be NO pet puppies available if all the puppies seem to be show quality. If it happens that there is not puppy available from the particular litter you are waiting for you have the option of waiting for the next litter.
  • We always reserve the right to decide who receives one of our puppies. Finding the right home for each puppy is of utmost importance to me.

  • You ALWAYS have the right to decide not to take a puppy even at the last minute. I never want anyone to feel that they must take a puppy once they have been put on the waiting list.

  • Show/performance quality puppies are ALWAYS chosen first and their placement takes priority over the choosing of pet puppies. This is in part due to the particular requirements for show puppies.

  • Show quality puppies are ONLY placed in homes where We feel they will be shown. 

  • As a rule I will be the one choosing which puppies go to which homes. This is of course done in close consultation with the puppy buyer to insure that everyone gets the puppy who best fits their requirements. 

  • If none of the puppies available are suitable you may wait for the next litter or go to another breeder. I am always happy to make referrals to other reputable breeders.

  • Puppies usually will go home between 8 - 9 weeks depending on when I am able to determine which puppies are potential show dogs and if the pups are mature enough to go home.
