Harvestime Kennel was established in 1987.
As an Obedience instructor, I was either seeing smart, high energy goldens that weren’t all that pretty, or beautiful dogs that didn’t have a solid work ethic. My goal was to produce solid, beautiful dogs that could think but weren’t bouncing off the walls. I wanted to produce dogs well-suited for therapy or service dog work, with an energy level well-suited for an average family.
Our six children were active in caring for our dogs as the kennel grew. Three of them enjoyed competing with the dogs and now have their own satellite kennels in Lakewood WI, Apple Valley MN, and Belgrade MT. I am now blessed to watch my grandchildren training and competing with their own dogs as we go into a third generation of Harvestime Kennel.
We are a Christian family that regularly either donates dogs to Service Organizations or donate 10% of every litter to worthy causes such as Covenant House, World Vision, Heifer International, or community needs. My husband, Rick, and I are retired and enjoy being home full time to run our business. All of our dogs live in guardian homes so they get to enjoy family life, plenty of attention and retire to that home when we are done breeding. We have been blessed to have impacted so many people’s lives through our dogs! There is nothing I would rather do!
