We began breeding Golden Retrievers back in 2000 when we set out to add a golden retriever to our family. As we began to research and understand about health testing, we found it difficult to locate a quality puppy where we were living and had to travel to find a well bred Golden Retriever. We focused on hunting lines at that time and had opportunity to compete in both field and hunting competitions. Our puppies were evaluated for therapy and drug dogs. One of our litters was featured in the Domestication’s catalog and another puppy was in the Dillard’s Christmas catalog. In 2006 we were relocated to Florida and made the difficult decision to suspend our activities with our Goldens as well as our breeding program. In 2008, we returned to Texas and began to rebuild our breeding program as well as begin to be bitten by the show ring bug.
