Frequently Asked Questions

Our dogs are all purebred golden retrievers that meet the AKC standards for the breed. They are American golden retrievers, not English (although many of our dogs are light in color). We do not produce any mixed breed variations such as golden doodles. We only breed dogs from reputable, established kennels thus breeding lineages that should be bred.

Our puppies currently cost $2,950. For puppies purchased in Minnesota and Wisconsin sales tax is also charged. Montana pups do not have sales tax.

Our goal is to produce healthy, smart, beautiful dogs that are well-suited to be family pets and/or do therapy work. We work with several therapy organizations and regularly place puppies who become service or emotional support dogs. We strive to produce calmer dogs and typically do not produce high-end performance dogs. Some of our puppies do learn to hunt, but that is not our primary goal.

We follow the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals health screening recommendations for golden retrievers. EVERY DOG has hip, elbow, eye, and heart clearances on our breeding dogs which is recommended by the OFA, as do several generations back. ALL of our dogs also have complete genetic testing to screen for health concerns.

No. Our contract strictly prohibits any breeding.
