The Enigl family started their kennel in Bozeman, Montana in 2012.
They recently moved to their current home in Belgrade, Montana last spring which sits on 12 acres close to the Bridger mountains and is located eight miles north of Bozeman and approximately 15 minutes from the Bozeman-Yellowstone International Airport.
Rob grew up raising puppies and started in the show ring at age 7. By age 11 he was competing with his dog, Sage, in the obedience ring. Heather was introduced to Harvestime goldens when Rob and her started dating in high school. When they got married, they got their first girl Lucy (Harvestime’s Lucy in the Sky) and their twins Lucas and Lydia were born about 1.5 years later. Lucas and Lydia are now 13 years old and love helping out with the puppies. Our family loves being outdoors and enjoying all the recreation opportunities in Montana such as rafting, camping, and skiing.
Rob was paralyzed in a car accident in 2014. It was amazing to see therapy dogs in work while Rob was at the rehabilitation hospital. Many of our goldens go on to do service or therapy work after leaving our home. Heather has taken over a majority of the kennel operations as Rob is now a member of the US National Alpine Ski Team and travels frequently in the winter to compete. Rob was a member of the 2022 Beijing Paralympic Team and continues to compete in World Cups internationally.
They are currently working on building their dream kennel facilities at their new home. As with their prior location, puppies will be whelped in a room in our home where they can be closely monitored and then moved to the attached heated kennel when they get bigger. There they will have access to indoor and outdoor play areas and many different toys, tunnels, etc. to explore.
