Who We Are

     ​We are responsible breeders of fine English Cream Type Golden Retrievers. We do our research on their lin​eage, health, temperament, and conformation to produce puppies that will improve and enhance the breed. We try to incorporate all the latest in genetic and health testing to only produce outstanding puppies. We love and care for each puppy. 

     We have one litter at a time, and they are born and live in the house with us. We expose them to as many sights and sounds as we can from day one. We screen every potential buyer to make sure our puppies go to safe and loving homes.

     We have had dog companions all our lives, and we couldn't imagine a life without dogs. Our dogs are our friends and we live our life with them. They do not live in a concrete kennel, on a chain, or outside.  

     We are hobby breeders, which means that we are definitely not a puppy mill, nor a large kennel operation. Both parents have passed all the health screenings for heart, eye, elbow, and hips and have had genetic testing to prevent passing on any hereditary diseases. The puppies are socialized and are used to being around other dogs and cats. We breed for health and temperament, and conformation.

     Please feel free to visit us, but please call ahead to make sure we are home.  We are located in Traverse City, Michigan. 

     The puppies are $2800 with a $500 non-refundable deposit to hold a puppy. They are sold with a spay/neuter contract. The puppies are adopted by approved homes only. The puppies come microchipped, de-wormed, vet checked, include a health guarantee, have current immunizations, AKC registration, a contract, and lots of love.

More pictures and videos are on our FB page, you can follow along with their growth and milestones. https://www.facebook.com/EnglishCream
