About the name: We knew we wanted an English flare to her name. Ivy is the product of our first TCI from an international breeding. Her father, Riley, lives in England. The climbing evergreen plant known as Ivy makes a simple, charming name for this beautiful dog. Derived from an Old English word, Ivy represents fidelity.
Thanks to Sarah, a professional trainer in the UK, worked with us to collect and ship Riley's amazing working golden heritage to the USA.
Ivy is very people oriented and intelligent. Sheloves to please and her working adoration is reciprocated with praise and affection. In the field its all business. As she moves through the fields she is so striking that I keep thinking to myself wow, that's a great looking dog! Ivy exhibits a bold, controlled confidence that is a gift to train with. Very birdy and a strong retriever. A powerful swimmer and gorgeous field coat.
