I have been in love with Golden Retrievers for as long as I can remember. It wasn't until I met a wonderful Papillon breeder who introduced me to responsible dog breeding, that I discovered my love for breeding dogs. She taught me why health testing is important and how to read pedigrees among a lot of other helpful things. After more than 10 years of careful research and planning, God blessed me with my first English Golden Retriever. Since then God brought a amazing man (I now call my husband) into my life, and together we live with our beautiful Goldens, a papillon and a cat on our small homestead in northwest Ohio.
Our goal with breeding English Golden Retrieve's is to give people the opportunity to have a good experience as they add a happy healthy puppy to their family.
To insure each puppy has the best start possible we do four important things.
1. Healthy Parents.
Before a litter is even thought of, we carefully select parents that have had all their health testing done. We then decide which dogs best complement each other’s physical characteristics and temperaments.
The first few weeks of a puppy’s life is spent in a warm box in our own room where they will start developing their ability to see, hear, and walk. After they become more mobile, we move them to a bigger area in the main part of the house where they can experience all the sights, sounds, and smells of daily life in the home. Litter training starts as soon as puppies can walk, making it easier for new owners to house break them.
At 4 weeks old, we start offering puppies a balanced raw diet. They will stay on this along with one meal of dry dog food a day throughout their time with . This gives puppies the nutritional they need to grow strong healthy bodies.
By following Puppy Culture methods for raising puppies, we give each puppy a head start on their socializing skills and confidence. This helps them learn how to ask politely for things, overcome scary sounds or objects, and learn how to focus on you as they learn new skills.
If you have any questions or think you would like to add a Golden member to your family feel free to contact us. We are located in north west Ohio about 45 minuets west of Toledo Ohio.
