Welcome to the Gaylan's Golden Retriever website!

Andy and I have been breeding beautiful performance golden retrievers for 30 years and are committed to the multi-purpose golden retriever, a dog who conforms to the Golden Retriever Standard and retains the breed's original abilities as a hunting companion.  Today, our dogs compete in conformation, agility, obedience, tracking, and hunting events. All are also loving family companions. If you are looking for a talented and beautiful dog, drop us a note.

Here on our website you can read more about our breeding philosophy and methods, meet our dogs, and learn about our breeding plans. We have also included information about the breed for those of you interested in getting started in competition, getting a hunting companion or seeking a good quality pet golden retriever.

We raise our dogs on and also sell a natural diet (Bravo Raw Diet) and Dynamite Specialty Products. Write us for more information.

Bookmark this page so you can come back often--we are always updating and changing our virtual kennel.
