All of our breeding dogs receive full health checks starting from birth with a full dog profile DNA test and then moving onto Hip and Elbow, eyes and heart testing at 12 months of age. All bitch's have one heat cycle before they enter the breeding program to ensure their maturity and their behaviour is monitored. …

About the Breeder

A little about us

WE HAVE ONE BEAUTIFUL BOY AVAILABLE NOW (JULY 2024) I started my breeding journey when my parents bred our Golden Retriever when I was a teenager. When I became an adult, I brought home my first Golden Retriever, and unfortunately I was lied to and the puppy was so ill that it had to be put to sleep. From here on…

Why we got involved in breeding

I was sold a dog that was so unhealthy that I had to put it to sleep. I now strive to bring healthy beautiful puppies into the world. I am in touch with several industry experts and enjoy staying in touch with our families!

Our special touch

Being a part of the puppy journey right from the beginning. Photos and videos sent home daily. A generous puppy pack with lots of information and life long support.
