This amazing dog has captured our hearts and filled our lives with fun and joy. We have been involved in purebred dogs for over 30 years, and we were delighted when we added Goldens to our world. We have several champions and strongly believe in genetic testing and clearances on our dogs. Our Golden Retriever breeding dogs all have Eyes Cerf and OFA Hips and Elbows Cleared, and Cardiac clearances by a board certified cardiologist. All puppies are microchipped before they go to their new homes. As devoted and amazing as any dog can be, the Golden.

We live on 30 beautiful acres of paradise in southwest Michigan.  We have been involved in breeding, showing and judging purebred dogs since 1980. We only breed two breeds, (Papillons and Golden Retrievers) and we are active in both breeds. We also own the Canine Behavior Center, a dog training center, and Liberty Equestrian Center  where we are involved in showing horses.
We are a member of the K9 Fanciers, Michigan Gun Dog Club and Canadian Papillon Club. I am a puppy coordinator for Leader Dogs for the Blind and I am very active in judging dogs for the United Kennel Club

 we also do puppy evaluations of litters of all breeds.
This past year we did evaluations on
  • Havanese (our top picks were AKC finished and one was on Top Ten list)
  • Pit bulls (Our top picks were GRCH before 12 months of age)
  • Labs  (many different litters)
  • Goldens (to many to count)
  • St. Bernard (Top two picks are finished)
  • Bull Mastiff (top pick was finished before 10months)
  • Toy Fox Terrier
  • Aussies (many different litters)
