Kona has recently gone into heat. If the breeding is successful we expect puppies around the middle of April.
We have owned dogs, mostly goldens our entire life. My dream of becoming a breeder and sharing the joy of adding a new puppy to a family began six years ago. We are committed to each and every puppy that we raise and have regular contact with past puppy families. We love getting pictures if the puppies and watch how they are growing and developing. We can also puppy sit if a vacation or other activities do not allow your fury friend to come with.
Our girls, Kona and Meg have regular complete check ups for their health, including:
Hips (OFA certified at the age of two)
Elbows (OFA certified at the age of two)
Eyes (Certified by an ophthalmologist annually)
Heart (Certified by a cardiologist after the age of one)
Genetics (DNA testing after birth)
We are River Birch Goldens located in Big Lake, MN. We raise English Golden Retrievers. We are a small, family breeder and strive to raise healthy, sound dogs with calm and loving temperaments. Our dogs have participated in many obedience classes. Both girls passed their Caine Good Citizen and Meg is s certified therapy dog through TDI (Therapy Dogs International),
Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
The English golden are known for being shorter, stockier and lighter in color than American goldens. English goldens typically have blockier heads with ears that sit a little lower than American goldens. English goldens are generally more calm, healthier and have less of a chance of developing cancer.
Both Kona and Meg and the studs we use have had regular, complete check-ups for their health including: Hips (OFA certified at age two), Elbows (OFA certified at age two), Eyes (certified by an ophthalmologist annually), Heart (certified by a cardiologist annually), Genetics (DNA testing after birth). Our puppies are free from health issues and are true to the English Golden Retriever temperament.
Adding an English Golden Retriever to your family is a very big decision. It is important that you develop a relationship with your breeder. River Birch Goldens encourages you to come and meet our family and most importantly our dogs. We instill lots of love and time into every litter. It is very common that I will cry when you take your forever baby home. We encourage communication and follow-up and are available for any questions or concerns that may arise. We love getting pictures and seeing how your new puppy is growing.
