Welcome to Our Site

About Us

Our family home is nestled on 63 acres in the heart of southwestern Indiana.  The Golden Retrievers enjoy a little piece of country heaven with a woods, hiking trails, and a pond for training. While the retrievers are mainly my passion and hobby, raising them is a family affair! Our two married daughters, sons, grandchildren, extended family and friends, all play a part in raising the Golden Retriever puppies.  We are small, hobby, preservation breeders and while we breed on a limited basis to further our goals, we are committed to breeding healthy, intelligent, sound, quality golden retrievers. 

"Grapevine Goldens" kennel name came from the fact that my husband is the 5th generation to live on this farm. Long ago, the road to our home was commonly referred to locally as "Grapevine Road". Since our roots are so deeply established here, the name seemed to naturally fit. We hope you enjoy looking through our website and learning more about our dogs and the Golden Retriever breed. 

Mission

Our ultimate goal and focus is producing Golden Retrievers for the breed's original purpose, a true hunting companion and working dog that is also a devoted family dog.  Our puppies are well suited for working homes, and active pet homes. 

If you have any questions, we are always happy to discuss the breed, our dogs, and our program with you! You can connect with us by email, Facebook message, or by using the contact form at the bottom of this page.

Temperament

Golden Retrievers have been a part of our lives for a decade. After learning more about the breed, showing our dogs in performance events, and developing our goals, we bred our first litter in 2013.

We are dedicated to breeding working/performance Golden Retrievers and follow the Code of Ethics set forth by the Golden Retriever Club of America. While our primary goal for each litter is to keep a puppy we can show in the AKC and UKC events, most of our puppies are placed as pets or working prospects. With that in mind, we spend a tremendous amount of time raising each puppy to be the best it can be, focusing on nutrition, genetics, epigenetics and scientifically-backed developmental and enrichment protocols.
