About Us

Our adventure with Goldens began when we watched “The Incredible Journey” as a family. My son, then eight, begged us to get him a golden retriever. We had lost our dog, an Australian Shepherd, to old age a year before and he was still mourning his loss. After researching Goldens, I felt this breed would be a great fit for our family. My oldest son has Autism and, with my work as a child psychologist, I would be able to take the dog to my office as a therapy dog for my clients.

Our first Golden, Maizey, turned out to be everything we hoped for. She has been great with my children and is very loyal, loving, and patient with them. My clients have also enjoyed having her there as a support to them. Due to her wonderful temperament, we went on to breed her. She has been a wonderful mother to her puppies. My sons enjoyed being involved in raising the puppies. They were eager to hold them and be involved in socializing them. The puppies were also a help during homework time, when the boys could hold a puppy to help them stay calm and focused. Homework time was never so enjoyable.

About the Breed

The story of Golden Retrievers begins in the mid-19th century in Scotland. A man named Dudley Marjoribanks, later known as Lord Tweedmouth, is credited with creating this breed.

In 1865, Lord Tweedmouth purchased a yellow retriever named “Nous” and paired him with a Tweed Water Spaniel named “Belle.” These two dogs are considered the foundation of the Golden Retriever breed. Over the years, Lord Tweedmouth carefully selected dogs with excellent hunting and retrieving abilities, including bloodhounds, Irish Setters, more Tweed Water Spaniels, and other breeds.

Lord Tweedmouth’s breeding program focused on producing a superb hunting dog capable of retrieving game from both water and land. The resulting breed was well-suited for the rugged Scottish terrain. The breed gradually evolved and was originally known as the “Yellow Retriever.” Later, they were named “Golden Retrievers” due to their stunning golden-colored coats.

In 1913, the Golden Retriever was officially recognized by The Kennel Club in the United Kingdom. Golden Retrievers were introduced to North America in the early 20th century. They soon became beloved companions and loyal service dogs. Their intelligence and versatility made them ideal for various roles, including search and rescue, guide dogs for the visually impaired, therapy dogs, and more.
