Sunset Goldens

Quality Golden Retrievers With Excellent Health, Temperament, And Ability

OUR GIRLS...

The following Goldens are excellent examples of both the breed standard and of what we are trying to produce. They have wonderful temperaments that have the right amount of drive and motivation to work and be trainable... mixed with the right amount of calm that will relax and lay quietly beside you in the house.  This is truly what I am after. A dog that can do it all.  

A lot of the reason that I have these dogs out and active in competition is that it proves that they can do exactly what I am hoping they can.  They are proving themselves and demonstrating that what they produce is consistent, trainable, healthy, and smart Goldens that are able to do and be exactly what the breed standard calls for.

     Please look around at the dogs, pictures and pedigrees.  If you have any questions please call, email, or set up a time for a visit.

Sugar was awarded the PRGRCO "ALL AROUND GOLDEN" award on 5/4/2014 for her work as a therapy dog, excelling at various competitions, and just plain having the golden temperament we all know and love.

You can follow Sugar's adventures as she works as a Therapy Dog at our local hospital!  Her Facebook page is www.facebook.com/SugarTherapyDog.

Sugar is such a joy to train and to be around!  She is a registered Therapy Dog and works in our local hospital.  She has earned multiple titles in Rally and Obedience.  She is an integral part of our family and really exemplifies the Golden Retriever and all that it should be.  She is attentive, beautiful, athletic, and full of life.  Never a day goes by that she isn't carrying a sock in her mouth... or 2 or 3 if she can find them.  She is currently training for a Rally Excellent and Companion Dog Titles hopefully to be finished this year with more to come next year.  Sugar really can do it all and she does it with a smile and tail wagging.  She has some amazing offspring out in the world as well.  They are competing in Obedience, Conformation, Rally, Hunting, Nosework, as Fully Trained Service Dogs, and Registered Therapy Dogs.

We are so excited to introduce this young girl!  This girl is already proving to be a reliable retriever and an absolute joy to train and be around.  She loves her training bumpers as well as pigeons and ducks.  She loves water and would work all day if she could!  Don't be fooled by her work ethic.  This girl is just as happy to snuggle quietly on your lap if allowed.  She is currently in training and not on site.  She is the Mother to Xena that you will find pictured below.

I really cannot say enough about this girl.  I care more about her working ability, but we will dabble some in conformation as well since she is just a stunning dog all the way around.  Her brain amazes me as does her willingness to work.  She thrives on learning new things and interaction with people.  Like her mom Erma, she is extremely aware of what her people need.  She snuggles.  She plays.  She learns as much as I have time to teach her.  In 2017, she will get a chance to compete in conformation, hunt tests, rally, obedience, and dock diving.  Maybe more!  This dog is the dream.  Beautiful conformation with health and brains and drive.  I cannot wait for what the future holds for her.  Her first AKC show is 1/2017 and they will continue throughout the year. SHE IS NOT ON SITE
