Sunset Goldens

Quality Golden Retrievers With Excellent Health, Temperament, And Ability

Thanks for visiting!

A huge congratulations to Aristotle for competing at the 2016 Golden Retriever National Specialty! He was a rock star for his WC test.  I will try to post the video links to his spot on the co-owner page.  I am so excited for this dogs future. A very special thank you to Elizabeth (co-owner/trainer) and Adrienne (bird trainer) for training him so beautifully for a job he so clearly enjoys and excels at.  I've never been prouder to be at the end of a leash and to watch as a dog I bred competed at his and my first National.

We can assist you in finding an Obedience dog, Hunting Companion, a dog to begin Service Training, or a healthy Golden Retriever Puppy for your family.  In addition to information about all of our dogs, we have included links to pedigree and to OFA so that current testing results may be viewed.


To date, our puppies have competed and earned titles in:

AKC Rally

AKC Hunt Tests

AKC Obedience

AKC Tracking Dog

AKC Coursing Ability

Working Certificate

Nosework (now competing up to ELITE level)

Graduated Service Dogs

Registered Therapy Dogs

Certificate of Conformation Assessment

Int'l & Nat Champions


From Goldens that are bred to become Service Dogs or Obedience and Hunting Competitors to puppies that quite simply become the most wonderful pets, you will find that our golden retriever puppies are second to none when it comes to temperament and ability.  Our Goldens are smart and WANT to learn!


We are here to help you every step of the way in not only finding the perfect Golden Retriever Puppy for your family, but also in directing you in finding appropriate training, education on the breed, and being a source of knowledge for the life of your dog.  Bringing in a new puppy is a big decision!  A Golden Retriever Puppy wants and needs to be a part of your family.  It is our goal to assist each family in identifying and evaluating each pup for temperament, health, conformation, and overall function.   We also offer limited training services, including puppy training to help get your pup off to the right start.

Thanks for visiting!


This year our dogs will be showcased in AKC Conformation, AKC Rally, AKC Obedience, AKC Hunt Tests and Nosework. 

Competition is important to us because we bond individually to each dog and it is always fun and challenging to learn new things.  We believe that competition is an integral part of not only proving that a certain dog may be bred, but it also firmly establishes the ability of that dog to be an excellent member of a family, in society, or in competition. Golden Retrievers can do anything!  Our breeding program is based on demonstrating that our dogs (therefore offspring) can thrive in even the most distracting environments... making them wonderful pets, therapy & Service Dogs!


Important Information:

  • OFA hips Excellent, Good, or Fair 
  • PENN-HIP tested (results are listed with each individual dog)
  • Heart certified by a Board Certified Cardiologist
  • Eyes certified by a Board Certified Ophthalmologist 
  • WE ARE NOW TESTING OUR DOGS FOR PRA AND ICHTYOSIS!  When looking for your new Golden, PLEASE be aware that ALL breeders should be testing for this!
  • COPIES OF ALL TESTING WILL BE PROVIDED!
  • Multiple generations of pedigree and testing information will also be provided as well as pictures when available for every puppy that goes home.  I provide the first 3 generations (because I get tired of making copies), but many generations past that are available by searching K9data.com or offa.org. 
  • All dogs are microchipped and matching numbers are listed on each test.
