We acquired our first Golden Retriever in 1990, and it has been one great adventure since. We actively train and compete in obedience, hunt tests, agility, tracking, and on occasion have been seen in the conformation show ring. Doug hunts with our Goldens and all of our breeding dogs have proven their abilities in real-life hunting on waterfowl and upland game birds. We are members of the Golden Retriever Club of America, the Greater Houston Golden Retriever Club, and the Brazosport Retriever Club. Over the years we have served in a variety of volunteer positions in these organizations, and we believe strongly in giving back to the sports that have given us so much. We are located on the western outskirts of the Houston metropolitan area.
Our goal in breeding is to produce Golden Retrievers that are sound in mind and body, correct to the breed standard, and possess outstanding working ability. Stable temperament and good health are of utmost importance to us. Although we strive to produce puppies that can win in the conformation show ring, it is of greater importance to us that our dogs meet the Golden Retriever breed standard, and that they be structurally sound, balanced, athletic, and capable of meeting with ease the long-term physical demands of a career in competition obedience, agility, tracking, hunt tests or hunting. Drive and desire to retrieve and to work, keen intelligence, courage and confidence, and a stable temperament are essential characteristics that we wish to preserve in our breeding program. Our breeding decisions make every effort to minimize inheritance of genetic health problems. Our first litter was bred in 1995, and we breed infrequently, only one litter about every 1-3 years.
