Training for your New Puppy!!
Golden Retriever Puppies will be available through our highly specialized breeding program. Our breeding dogs each have genetic testing, OFA hip, elbow and heart certifications, show titles, and many have successfully completed our Service Dog Training Program or our Therapy Dog Training Program. We also hand select Golden Retriever puppies from excellent breeders for our Program, to be made available as pets or Therapy Dogs.
Check out our guide on Picking the Perfect Puppy for “inside” information on what to look for and what to look out for. While most breeders have a website, you do not want to blindly purchase a puppy from a website as it may be a cover for a “puppy mill”.

Go-Home Training for Board & Train
A full session of training ensures a smooth transition with everything you need to know about maintaining and continuing your puppy’s training and socialization.
Prior to training day, you receive a training video of your puppy and the commands, training, and socialization he or she has received. You learn how to ask your dog the commands and how to maintain his or her training. A hard copy of the training video is provided for you to review at any time.
A delivery can be scheduled to show you and each family member how to request the training commands, maintain the puppy’s training, and continue their socialization. We work with you until you are fully comfortable with each of the commands! *delivery does not include mileage, lodging or meals*
Puppy Refresher Training is available, however when the puppy matures into an adult, you must enroll in Basic On Leash Training or Advanced Off Leash Training as adult training is different from puppy training. We love our puppies and can't wait for them to return!
