All About Goldens

Contact Us


Below you will find a collection of breeders we believe to be reputable hobby breeders in the United States and Canada with a special interest in the English-style Golden Retriever and the bloodlines in North America with pedigrees that reflect at least 50% post-1950 Golden Retrievers imported from the UK, Europe, Australia, and/or New Zealand, or their fresh or frozen semen.

We believe these breeders are Golden Retriever fanciers that are active in their local or national dog community, routinely follow the GRCA Code of Ethics (Golden Retriever Club of America), the GRCC Code of Ethics (Golden Retriever Club of Canada), or both, and follow accepted breeding and selling practices. They are dedicated to maintaining the mental and physical qualities of the breed according to the breed standard and continually seek to improve the dogs they produce in each litter. We encourage you to read the LISTING GUIDELINES, the EVALUATING BREEDERS article and the ACQUIRING A GOLDEN RETRIEVER booklet before contacting breeders.

Additional educational material is available under All About Goldens. We encourage puppy buyers to contact several breeders and work with whomever they feel most comfortable.

Please contact us at mail@englishgoldens.net if you have any questions or concerns.

Note: To be listed on this website, a breeder must meet the LISTING GUIDELINES and have an approved LISTING APPLICATION on file with the website staff.
