Puppy Application

Fall 2023 Reservations Are OPEN now ♥

We aren’t only breeders.

Our golden retrievers are all raised as family members, everyone lives as part of a family and no one lives in a kennel. We are puppy imprinters and educators. We build relationships with our puppy families & service organizations and educate on puppy development and puppy raising.

We focus on early concept training which teaches puppies to think & understand, shape their temperament and helps us develop a blue print for each individual puppy, so when pups join their families we send them home with a report card which will help to train the individual puppy, not a blank slate and one-size fits all approach. In their time spent with us, we work with the the pups to create positive brain connections. We set them up optimally for beginning their lives with their new families in pet homes or service training.

We are scheduling consultations and accepting reservations now for our 2023 fall litter reservations.

Puppies remain with us until they are between 7-8 weeks old.

Our puppies are born and raised in our home, and their health and development is a priority the entire time they are with us. 

Puppies are raised with developmental strategies from the time they are newborn, receiving early stimulation and socialization to establish positive brain connections.   

By the time puppies join their new families, they will have been exposed routinely to water activities, new scents, sight and sound socialization, various types of motion, outdoor exposure and play, and an introduction to crate, potty and behaviour training, through our day to day interactions.  

Each of our puppies receives a temperament and learning evaluation, which guide us in working with them and serve as a blue print for families and trainers when choosing and carrying on with teaching their pups at home. The puppies are sent home with their individual report card to facilitate the transition to their new homes and training.

We coach puppy families on feeding and appropriate growth, including a take home growth chart and body composition diagram.
