After 30+ years involved in loving, showing & breeding golden retrievers I have retired from the latter of those 3.
I always said when it became more like work to me, I would stop and that time arrived.
You have to listen to and follow where life guides you.
I do miss raising puppies which was always a labour of love for me and I will miss welcoming the new people into my life who purchased my puppies.

Hopefully you will find information on this web site which will help you in your search for your golden companion.
