Health Testing: As Golden Retrievers and Goldendoodles have become increasingly popular (for good reason!), health testing is more important than ever. We've learned a lot about testing in the last several years, and have discovered that there are MANY ways to greatly promote excellent health! And WE are committed to doing everything we can to make sure our dogs have excellent health and have a great start to being a well-socialized, well-adjusted, easy to train companion. All of our dogs are health tested, and we only breed with studs that are tested in a like manner. We pay careful attention to the matching of dogs. Health testing combined with the care we give our dogs and our pups create the best possible likelihood for good health, wonderful temperament, not to mention beautiful pups.
Testing sources we use: Embark (at Cornell University), PawPrints, E-Vet Diagnostics, OFA, Penn-hip
Puppy Culture: We use many of the exercises and developmental philosophies promoted in Puppy Culture, along with socialization as a pet within our home.
London ... (Retired 2022) AKC registered. London breeds for English Cream Golden Retrievers. We went looking for another Sadie, and found her! London is just as sweet and loving, gentle and calm, just a pure love. London loves other dogs - and loves swimming in the river. When I say gentle, I mean gentle. She can hardly pick up a treat out of my hand for her calm and soft way about her. Genetic and health testing is complete.
Chloe ... AKC registered ... Chloe is from London x Gatlin's August 2019 litter. Chloe is full of personality and eager to please. As a puppy she was playful and very focused on communicating with her human (me!). She loves to be 'on task', she loves a puzzle ball, loves the water, and is very food driven. She responds very quickly to training. She is friendly to everyone she meets and wants to be in the middle of everything. We love this girl to pieces. Chloe's health and genetic testing are complete.
Martin ... f1b, one of Gracie's pups and Sadie's grandpups. Martin is cute cute cute and turns heads wherever he goes. He is completely committed to our daughter and knows his job ... He is very cuddly, very playful, very entertaining, loves exercise, and loves to lay around and snuggle. Martin will stud for us, when his health testing is complete. Martin resides in Hilton Head SC.
Gracie ... f1 Goldendoodle. Gracie Mae is such a special girl to us. She is one of Sadie's pup. She gave us 6 amazingly beautiful litters of healthy pups. Her pups are so attentive, playful, entertaining, full of personality, so devoted to their people, friendly and loving. Gracie is retired and lives in Fearrington Village where she exercises daily on long walks, meets and greets everyone in the community, and is happy as can be. We miss her and LOVE when she comes to visit!
Gus ... Gus is our tried and true, good ol' boy. He is the first of Sadie's pups that we kept. We needed to know first hand the kind of dog our clients were receiving from us. And he proved to us, that our dogs are truly a gift. He LOVES to play ball - if you don't want to play ball, it better be out of sight. He enjoys swimming and just hanging out - he can be quite the lazy boy. He loves to go on walks and has a great coat. We love you, Gus! Gus is not part of our breeding program.
