Welcome to our site! We are a small Golden Retriever breeder located in Fruitport, Michigan. The goal of our breeding program is to produce healthy, quality Golden Retriever puppies. Our dogs are our pets first and foremost. We have shown our dogs successfully in conformation in American Kennel Club, Canadian Kennel Club and United Kennel Club events and enjoy that as well. We are members of the Golden Retriever Club of America.

 

 

We began breeding Goldens because we were concerned about the quality of the Goldens that we were seeing.  Many of these dogs were the products of “breeders” who were more concerned with making a dollar rather than improving the breed.

Our initial breeding was undertaken with a lot of soul searching and research.  It’s a big responsibility.  We believe that you don’t breed a dog just for the sake of producing puppies.  You also don’t breed just any dog.  We believe that your breeding stock has to be healthy, representative of the breed, and must possess qualities worthy of being passed on.  To that end, we partnered with Karin Klouman and Wally Barr from Kyon Kennels (www.kyonkennels.com) in Shelbourne , Ontario .  Kyon has produced top quality Goldens for over thirty years and their assistance, experience and mentoring has been invaluable.  Our first breeding was between our Cassie (UCh Little Platte Golden Girl) and Kyon’s outstanding Swedish import, Can. Ch Dewmist Davenport. 

We have continued to partner with Kyon Kennels over the years.  We also work closely with Jennifer McAuley and Chrys-haefen Kennels (www.chrys-haefen.com) in Scotland, Ontario for handling and quality dogs to improve our lines.

All of our breeding dogs have the appropriate health clearances, hip, elbow, eye and heart certifications.
