We bought our first golden retriever in 1982 and so began so many years of absolute devotion to the breed. Our goldens have been wonderful companion dogs, as well as the catalyst for a great and lasting hobby.  Andre’s involvement began when he joined the ACT’s Companion Dog Club and developed an interest in Obedience training our first golden, Sinenen Silas, CDX.  We turned to exhibiting our dogs in 1986-7 and enjoyed our successes (or otherwise!) in the show ring.  A golden retriever is one of the best companion dogs and lives to please.

We still have our old girl, Philippa, and still maintain a great interest in the breed.

We hope you’ll look through our goldens’ pages to see the dogs who have given us so much pleasure over so many years.  Just select the link to each dog under the “Boys” and “Girls” pages.
