The heart of our farm is raising healthy, structurally sound dogs, who are a true best friend and family companion. We are located 20 minutes outside of Richmond, Virginia in rural Goochland County.
As a testament to that philosophy, socialization is something we actively engage in to ensure that each of our pups will become a loving part of their family. Although performance, health, and structural soundness of the parents do not guarantee the offspring. The probability of improving and maintaining positive traits in the breed through conscientious breeding is greater. Our dogs are carefully chosen from lines that have been researched for sound temperaments plus hereditary diseases and conditions.
All of our parents must conform to the AKC standard for the breed. They have completed heart, eye, elbow, and hip exams. We are also completing DNA screening and working with other lines that have been DNA screened to help ensure pups are not affected by genetic conditions common to our breed. This allows our puppies' new families to be confident that their pup's health has been built upon continued high documented standards.
The GRCA provides puppy referral as a convenience to puppy buyers to find out about breeders who are GRCA members and their litters. GRCA takes no responsibility whatsoever for any puppies/dogs that you may acquire through GRCA puppy referral. GRCA is not responsible for any breeder’s sale practices and sales contracts, nor will GRCA be involved in any manner in contract disputes between puppy buyers and breeders. Availability of puppies and conditions of sale are at the sole discretion of the individual breeder. Buyers are encouraged to read ACQUIRING A GOLDEN RETRIEVER, as found on the grca.org web-site, for general information about obtaining a puppy, to take as much time as necessary to locate a reputable breeder from whom they feel comfortable purchasing a puppy, and to investigate breeders and their puppies thoroughly before committing to a purchase. You are not obligated to purchase a puppy from the breeders whose names you obtain from GRCA puppy referral.
