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