About Me

Experienced Breeder

image2

I am a Golden Retriever breeder since 1978 and I have been involved with Clumber Spaniels since 2002.  I am located just north of Chattanooga, TN.  I am interested in promoting responsible dog ownership while preserving the integrity of each breed, with an emphasis on correct temperament, correct structure and longevity.  I actively show in conformation, obedience, field and do therapy work.   


My dogs all possess every clearance required by the GRCA & CSCA Code of Ethics:  hip, elbow, cardiac done by a cardiologist and current eye exams by ophthalmologist.  I have invested  as well in DNA testing  for each of my breeding dogs for all conditions for each breed.  Most of these are simple recessives  and can be eliminated with selective breeding.


Several of my goldens are also involved in animal acting and I have been involved in a movie, commercial, magazine ads, and currently the Checkfree.com mascot.


Whether you looking for a show dog, therapy dog, obedience, agility or just a loving pet, you've come to the right place.  All my puppies are raised in a loving family environment in my home with special attention to temperament and  health.


I am an AKC Breeder of Merit and an AKC Judge.


I have been part of the following organizations:

Golden Retriever Foundation (past   President)
Golden Retriever Club of America (past Vice President Eastern Region)
Atlanta Golden Retriever Club (Past President & Board Member)
Sandlapper Golden Retriever Club (past President & Board Member)
Clumber Spaniel Club of America (Past Board Member)
Sawnee Mountain Kennel Club (2008 Breeder of The Year)
2011 GRCA National Specialty - General Show & Conformation Chair


I highly recommend NuVet supplement.   NuVet Plus can help heal and protect against the ravages of free radicals that attach your pet throughout its life.
