Welcome to our website and thank you visiting.


We are a small rural breeder in Tumut, NSW Australia established in 2011 after receiving our "Breeder's Accreditation".


Our commitment to the breed of Golden Retriever is to strive for excellence in Conformation, Structure, Soundness and Temperament.  Not only will this enable our puppies to integrate into their human family with ease and gentleness, but also they will be able to undertake all the activities they were initially bred for and keep up with the kids.


Before breeding, we undertake extensive research into the potential sires to ensure they meet our high standards and have proof of their genetic history. Sires are only chosen after they have met our stringent standard and meet all the criteria within our commitment. Our Girls and the Sires we use are tested for Hips/Elbows, Heart, Eyes and DNA for PRA 1 & 2, Ichthyosis and Muscular Dystrophy. As new DNA are tests are developed we will ensure that they are undertaken, giving our family of puppy owners the surety of stable healthy dogs.


We do not breed regularly and do not have a kennel environment. Our dogs live and play in our home and all puppies are born and raised the same way. Our puppies are given all the loving and tender care that we can impart, and are made ready in every way to go to their forever homes.


We can proudly say that we breed loving, loyal and happy dogs with temperaments of "PURE GOLD".
