Golden Retriever Breeders
We have seven breeding age bitches who are first and foremost family pets. Not all of them live with us all of the time. Some live with our closest family and friends.
We are part of the Kennel Club Assured Breeder scheme.We also have our Council Breeders License 5 *****rating for three years from 4th July 2019 - 3rd July 2022
Licence Number : 476811/ 170920

Betsy has come into season and after an unsuccesful mating last time we are hoping for a litter at the end of April. We are not able to get a scan for Betsy but are hoping that we will be having puppies around the 30th April. Her wating list is now closed.
Go to Teddy and Skye's pages to see their fantastic Health Test Results! They are expected to come into season in May or June.

This is a breeders perception and I hope that those people that I have directed to my site read this take heed!
I have spent 3 years planning for this year, I kept 5 puppies in 2018 with a view to turning my hobby into a business. I have invested over £25,000plus hours of planning and care . AND m not going to breed any puppies until this virus is beaten.
If you are looking for a puppy right now. Please think again. They may be the odd well bred puppy on the market but I have had nearly 200 enquires in the last 2 weeks.
I am not breeding my treasured girls for the following reasons:
1. I need to travel to mate my girls with the best quality, best suited dogs available. (see the Kennel Club Breed values coifficency)
2. There are no vets available to ensure my girls are in the best health or that if their are problems they can be helped.
3. The girls cannot have their yearly vacination putting any puppies they bare at added risk of infection. The ones I have right now are born from a full vaccinated mother. I cannot say this going forward.
4. My girls also cannot have their regular year health tests completed. This ensures that puppies are only born from the healthiest mums.
5. The puppies cannot have their innoculations so may be at risk in the future, especiaaly where their mum has missed her yearly injection.
6. To be inline with government restrictions on travel I cannot vet my potential owners. I hold an extended interview process with potetial owners and just because you want a puppy doesn't mean you are suitable or ready to have one. Please think, why do you want a puppy right now? What will happen once life returns to normal?
7. It is in the puppies that I have right now's best interest to be taken to their new homes, I cannot with hand on heart say that any future puppies not concieved at the time of this post, can be delivered/collected in line with UK Gov guidelines, as I now have full knowledge of the travel restrictions.
8. If you read this and go elsewhere you risk getting a puppy that has been farmed and or imported from overseas. Please use this site and the information it provides to vet your puppy's breeders!!!!!
I may have other puppies due soon, but the people on that waiting list were on it before the current restictions.
Corona Virus News
Taking Advice from the Government we are not having our schedule open days. I am very sorry that we cannot welcome you all into our home. We are however, going to add sections to the web site so that you can have a clear view of the girls lives and how we look after our puppies.
Update 24th March 2020
As the current situation develops we have taken the decision to defer any further litters for the coming months. Please however keep an eye on this page as we will update it as the situation develops.
Update 25th March 2020
We have had unpresidentated phone calls and messages from people thinking that this time is a good time to get a puppy and although I may upset some people with this post, I would like you to think about the position of dogs and puppies at the moment.
Vetinery care is not available right now other than for emergencies. Puppies and adult dogs cannot get their regular/first innoculations therefore the health and welfare of dogs is precarious looking forward.
There will be people who use the situation to breed sustandard puppies and may to all look like respectable breeders so do do your homework. My contact wiht other people in breeding circles is that most are suspending their breeding programme for the time being.
I am in the postion that the puppies leaving home in three weeks time will not be able to be socilaised in the best manner for their future health and wellbeing. I will do my best to support my new owners in providing them with ideas that will ensure their puppies get do the best start but not all breeders are the same.
My advice would be wait until this Pandemic has ended. Unless you have thought this through and are approaching it in the same manner as if you were not finding yourself at home unexpectedly.
