WILLOWCREST GOLDENS ONE BREED ONE GOAL TO PRODUCE OUTSTANDING BRITISH TYPE GOLDEN RETRIEVERS WITH TOP LINES FROM AROUND THE GLOBE
Pictured above is one of my favorite puppies who belongs to one of my and favorite owners. This is Tucker owned and loved by the Aikenhead family of Brooklin.
We have been producing excellent retrievers for over 30 years now and EXPERIENCE does matter when choosing your next best friend. Our 125 acre farm houses our goldens and our show horses and has a wonderful river running through it in which the goldens love to bits. We have cut trails though out the property for those great three season's walks. We screen our dogs carefully to ensure as best as possible a long living healthy pet. We breed for health, longevity, conformation, brains and beauty. All our breeding dogs have passed hips, elbows, eyes and heart. We also do eyes annually to make sure nothing hereditary develops. We breed only dogs who have rated a good or better on their hips and whose elbows are both clear. Our hearts are checked and certified by a cardiologist. All of our dogs and puppies are raised and live in our home. We believe that is where all goldens belong. They are such a social breed they cannot be confined to a kennel or raised in a barn. Our puppies leave with first shots, de wormed, microchipped, pet insurance, wealth of knowledge. All of our puppies are CANADIAN KENNEL CLUB registered. We have been proud members of the CANADIAN KENNEL CLUB for over 30 years. We have recently added more living space so we can accommodate your pet for babysitting and have found overwhelming success with this. Knowing your puppy can come and play and be with the folks who loved him/her first brings great comfort to our puppy buyers. We only babysit what we breed.
Our puppies are totally socialized by the time they leave our home and well on their way to toilet training. Our puppies may leave our home but never our heart's.
