Puppy update due to COVID-19, Doodles, Mongrel outcrosses, Health Certifications
Since 2005 our program has focused on a long term outlook of field golden. Involving genetics from the UK, CAN and USA working lines, we work for body size, structure, health, temperament, pedigree usage, retrieving drive and birdiness.
2020 introduced a tremendous puppy boom. Boredom, mongrel breeding, quick money are having an affect on the 150 years of this incredible breed. Especially the field lines who are being used for their color and sold at exorbitant pricing. Many are seeking stylish fads or backyard turnaround money-makers. I recently discovered a kennel not far from us who is breeding over 25 poodles and a single male golden. I'm not the puppy or dog police. I understand we live in an amazing country with many business opportunities. However, all who contact us should understand we are breeding with a vision and purpose - Preserve the original intent as an ideal working dog.
We've chosen to focus on optimizing the classic field/working golden. Its the only breed we've worked with. We don't support, breed or sell our dogs to anyone producing doodles or other mongrel crosses.
We keep and train our own along with other carefully selected and trusted field lines. In this way, we're able to evaluate what we are producing, how they perform in the field and watch their health. Starting 2021, all our puppies will be sold with limited registration/breeding rights and are not guaranteed as breeding stock. All of our puppies are sold with the WM Farms kennel name requirement for tracking purposes.
All that truly love this breed are beneficiaries of dedicated breeders with a vision. In consideration and sincere appreciation for those who have paved the way before us, we intend to do what we can to preserve that work. By maintaining the integrity of the field golden retriever.
Our pricing reflects our time, training, facilities, effort and investment to breed today's working golden. Full registration can be obtained with certain litters after your pup is 2 years old, after completing the standard genetic and health certifications. Puppy preference given to working homes with a usage purpose in mind.
Feel free to contact us with any questions. Happy training!
