ALL PUPPIES FROM THESE LITTERS ARE SPOKEN FOR. PLEASE SEE CURRENT LITTERS PAGE FOR A POSSIBLE AVAILABLE PUPPY.
"Mack" is a wonderfully talented field dog who is ready to work at a moment's notice. Yet, when he comes home, he is content to turn the energy off and become a great house dog. Great marking is Mack's strength, and he handles well on blinds. He recently passed his third Master National, qualifying him for the Master National Hall of Fame! Mack has been trained by his owners, and has also been on a pro's truck. He makes the switch from one to the other seamlessly, not always an easy thing to do. Mack's temperament is impeccable, getting along with other male dogs and all people. He weighs in at 64# and is roughly 22" tall. He will spend the winter focusing on competitive obedience.
Mack's unique pedigree includes many accomplished field trial dogs, including his sire who finished 1 point short of his AFC, and
2 FC/AFC grandparents.
Mack will certainly complement Raisin, producing strong field competition, hunting buddies, and family companions, possessing good health, longevity, and structural soundness.
Raisin is my first dog in which I’ve done all the basics, foundation, transition, and advanced training. She made me proud by going 5/5 to earn her Master Hunter title, exemplifying an eye-catching style that brought a smile to many faces. She marks with impressive accuracy and demonstrates what it means to be a team player on blinds. We entered our first field trial Qualifying stakes this past summer, and we came away with a 3rd place and a JAM! Raisin has a happy, yet intense personality with lots of prey drive, plus silliness thrown in for good measure. Her favorite thing in life, next to getting a bumper or bird, is getting her belly rubbed
(she'll do this on command :-)
Raisin weighs 60# and stands 21". She is darker in color and has beautiful movement. I sometimes wonder if she's not related to an antelope by the way she bounds through tall grass. :-) Obstacles are not a problem for her on the way to a bird. Once she stunned the people I was training with because instead of going around the big, round haybale, she went right over the top! She is an incredible athlete! Puppies from her first litter are showing the same athleticism, trainability, and field intensity. Raisin has definitely set the bar high and I'm looking forward to the years
ahead with her!
It is exciting and an honor to announce our upcoming breeding of Kicker to Topper! He is a wonderful representation of our breed, exemplifying the temperament, field ability, and beauty that is expected of Golden Retrievers. Here is what his owner, Renee Schulte, has to say about Topper:
I did not have a goal to keep a puppy from Topper’s litter born in 2016, until he was just too irresistible to pass up. Early on, at 7 wks of age, he showed me a temperament, body style and structure that I could not pass up. He was a ‘stand out, eye catching’ pup in his litter. Topper was very
people oriented, following and interested in me from the start. Rough and tumble play between he and I, was a game he enjoyed and always came back and up on my lap for more attention. A confident puppy and avid retriever, he would not let the litter mates take the live pigeon he had and would out run and maneuver his litter mates to keep possession of it.
Topper continued to show great ability in field work and at 7 months of age went south with Pro Trainer, Mike Ough for eight months. Topper was groomed to run field trial Derby Stakes and competed successfully. Earning two fourth placements, a Reserve Jam and a Jam in large competitive Derby competitions, earning him a place on the Golden Retriever Derby list.
Topper spent three months, when he was 2 1⁄2 years old, with noted Pro Trainer, Andy Attar. Andy expressed that, Topper had the best temperament of any Golden he had ever had in his kennel...always ready to do his work, with effort and style. Topper always got along wonderfully with ALL dogs when in a group in the airing yard. Toppers structure is very muscular, athletic with a medium length coat, dark gold in color.
He has a handsome strong head with black eyes and dark pigment along with scissors bite. Strong top line, good tail set, 23 1⁄4 inches tall and about 68-70 pounds. At three years old, in 2019, Topper earned his AKC Master Hunter title and placed 3rd in a Qualifying Stake at a Canadian Field Trial. Received a Reserve Jam in a Qualifying Stake on 5/7/21 at Flat River Trial in MI. On July 9/10, 2021 Topper placed 3rd in a 40 dog
Qualifying stake at Flat River, with only 8 dogs finishing the stake.
In 2020, at 4 years old, due to the Corona virus, Topper ran a few more more Master Hunt tests and now is MH 13.
Topper qualified in 2020 & 2021 to run the Master National and Master Amateur Trials. He is entered in and will compete at the Master Amateur in VA in May 2021.
Now as a 5 year old, Topper and I will concentrate on training and running Qualifying and Amateur stakes at field trials. Topper is a joy to live with, train and own. He is extremely people oriented. Everyone and
every dog/puppy is his friend. An enthusiastic handsome, well structured athletic boy always ready to work with a huge work ethic and an impeccable temperament.
Kicker was a singleton puppy out of my Glow x Flash breeding. Her sire, Flash, (FC AFC Topbrass No Time to Paws MH CCA WC OS FDHF) is one of the most influential and titled Goldens in recent times. Kicker has the sweetest temperament you could ask for, plus an intense drive and work ethic in the field. She was always a bit amped up at the hunt tests, but once she got on the line, she was all business. She carries that work ethic and focus into the duck blind. My husband doesn't watch the sky for birds, he just watches Kicker. Ducks or geese on the horizon do not escape her watchful eye. And in the field hunting for pheasants, she's been described as "a machine".
Kicker is a beautiful representation of the breed receiving high scores and compliments from the CCA judges on her structure and movement. Marcia Schlehr, who literally wrote the book on proper structure for Goldens, said Kicker's coat was the "most correct coat she's seen in years". Weighing in at 62# and standing at 21-1/2" tall, she is an athlete and beauty queen rolled into one dynamite package!
Kicker's first love is field work, and she has proven herself in hunt tests as well as in the field for waterfowl and upland game. Puppies from her first two litters are competing in hunt tests, field trials, scentwork, agility, and in the obedience ring, as well as companions for people, young and old alike. Kicker is everything a Golden Retriever should be!
