Well worth the Journey
Located in the bottom half of the North Island of New Zealand, Wanganui is situated near the mouth of the Wanganui river on the West Coast. It is the hub of a busy dairy cattle and sheep farming area and in recent years is becoming increasingly known for its forestry industry.
As with showing, I take the breeding side of my hobby very seriously and I am committed to breeding true to type Golden Retrievers with good temperament being my first priority. All of my breeding stock are hip and elbow scored and have annual eye tests. I undergo DNA testing my breeding stock for 7 known inherited diseases that there are tests available for, PRA1, PRA2, PRCD-PRA, Ichthyosis and MD(muscular Dystrophy) and DM (Degenerative Myelopathy), NCL-GR (Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis) This test has just been validated and all my adult dogs have tested clear. Results are listed on each dog’s page.
I place great importance on my puppies going to family homes, where they are part of the family life. This includes a requirement that the puppy lives in the house, as proper socialization is necessary for a well-behaved dog. Golden Retrievers are bred as companion animals/retrieving dogs and as such, are happiest when close to their human families. Properties MUST be dog proof fenced!
Puppies are occasionally available to approved homes.
