GOLDEN RETRIEVERS are meant to be sweet, sensitive,
loving, healthy and long lived family companions.
Unfortunately, the breeds
popularity has increased greatly in recent years
and many are bred for the
wrong reasons resulting in temperament and health
Here at HONOR, we are past our 41st year in Golden
Countless hours of work, research, genetic studies,
expense, caring and prayer have
gone into each and every puppy born here. Only
the best are used for breeding and our
choices for breeding stock go through scrupulous
testing. Pets are placed with a
limited registration and spay/neuter contracts.
Show pups are guided with our help
and input with years of genetic studies. We feel
that the current over-population
of our breed is a serious, sad and unnecessary
situation. Even if a dog is top quality -
remember the breeder needs to be experienced and
have the hours of devotion and
knowledge necessary to guarantee a healthy, sweet
tempered and beautiful dog.
Many HONOR GOLDENS become certified for therapy
hearing dog work, servicing the physically and
emotionally challenged community.
Others have striven towards working AKC titles
and we are proud to be the breeders
of several hundred obedience and field titled Goldens.
The last "dual" champion
in our breed was Honor bred Ch. AFC Honor's Darado
of Spindrift, (Hondo) trained
entirely by his owner John Sprude. To date, we
have produced more than 200 AKC Champions of record.
Despite these wonderful titles, they would mean
if each dog was not everything a pet home desires
and deserves. A golden by
nature should be a loving and calm house pet devoted
to children and tolerant of
all sorts of things. Producing this wonderful breed
is a challenge we take very
seriously. We are here for consultation, guidance,
training, boarding or just
plain friendship. We are in constant contact with
our puppy buyers and have
extensive family photo and video albums from our
New health findings along with related specialty fields
through universities, veterinarians and the Internet.
Preventative health has
been a major thrust in order to educate owners, always
striving to seek state
of the art health care and superior genetics. It is
not by chance that most
Honor bred dogs live up to 15, and even 18 years of
age. Detailed volumes of
educational materials are provided to all puppy buyers.
The unique, careful
love and attention each puppy receives from birth
to 7 weeks, is legendary.
Producing ideal temperaments, robust health and exquisite
beauty is what Honor
has become known for.
