We anticipate breeding two litters of golden retriever puppies this year. Our selected girls are due to cycle at any time. Each litter is expected to produce lovely, talented puppies that will be suitable for many activities including hunting, obedience, agility, hunt tests, SAR and more. We raise our pups to be confident, well-socialized puppies that make wonderful family companions.
We specialize in raising field golden retrievers. These dogs have a great deal of drive which makes them very desirable for all of the above activities. We HUNT all of our dogs! They are NOT couch potato pups. The most successful placements are in families or settings with a high level of activity; these pups need regular - DAILY- exercise no matter the weather. Please consider the amount of time you are willing to commit to a puppy to be certain that the pup is a good match for your lifestyle.
We welcome inquiries from people who have experience with dogs and have an active lifestyle. We expect new puppy owners to have a plan for working with and training their puppy.
All of our dogs have full Health Clearances. We offer a written health warranty for our pups.
Our puppy price is $2500. All pups are sold with limited registration (no breeding rights). If you wish to breed your pup, our breeding contract applies. Please complete our Puppy Application if you are interested in a puppy; we will call you once we have received it. We always enjoy visiting about these special golden retrievers and look forward to sharing our plans for these litters.
Photos of each of these dogs can be found on their individual pages; go to Our Boys or Our Girls and click, then click on the dog's photo that you wish to see.
We are compiling Wait Lists for these litters. Most litters are reserved well before the litter is born, often before it's bred. This page will be updated with news as we have it.
Please contact us for more information or to schedule a kennel visit.
CANUCK X LULU
AND CANUCK will produce true, real-deal hunting dogs with
loads of natural intelligence and instinct. The best way to find a
hunting pup is to get one from hunting parents. Puppies from this litter

venues including hunting, hunt tests, Search and Rescue, agility and

strong hunting dog and leaves no brush unturned; she goes all day long.

LUCKY X WHOA NELLIE
LUCKY is a strong bird hunting dog
plus he is our resident 'clown'. When in the field, Lucky is "all
business" and is such a valued hunting companion. He possesses a real
natural intelligence and ability, and is incredibly athletic. His
sire, FC AFC Topbrass Band On The Run FDHF exemplifies the qualities needed in a strong hunting dog, plus Band's sire, FC OTCH Topbrass Ascending Elijah
was the first golden retriever to ever earn a field championship as
well as an obedience trial championship. There is a ton of great talent
in Lucky's pedigree! Lucky's dam is our wonderful foundation girl, Lucy.
She was our perfect golden retriever who would hunt all day long and
then become the special guest at our childrens' parties. Lucky weighs 73 pounds, is a classically beautiful golden retriever, dark gold in color with a correct field coat.
Whoa Nellie is sired by our male Canuck (Heads Up Run For The Border). We often refer to Canuck as our "Rock Star" as he never ceases to amaze us with his drive, talent, temperament and strong work ethic. Nellie seems to be pretty close to being a clone in all those ways of her sire. She is dark gold in color, a solid 58 pounds with a great field coat. She doesn't know what Whoa means! She hunts all day and has an incredible nose and drive to retrieve. Nellie's dam is our good girl, Kate. Kate is a wonderful cross of our Topbrass Alpine Babe and RockErin Fionn MacCool. (See description of Finn in the above litter listing.)
We anticipate strong working dogs suitable for many venues. The parent dogs are healthy, athletic dogs with high levels of trainability and solid temperaments. These pups are bred to be working dogs and will do best in homes with dedication to training and interaction with the pups. We welcome inquiries from people who have had experience with high drive dogs that plan to use these pups in the field or active lifestyle. There are no "Pet" placements available in this litter; working homes with dog experience will be considered for these puppies. We expect Nellie to be bred in May/June for summer puppies.
