Andy and I have been involved with golden retrievers since 1979 when we purchased our first golden, Aurora’s Dream of Garzas Can Am CD WCX OD Can CD .

Dream introduced us to obedience, hunting, breeding and the wonderful people involved with goldens. We have had goldens in our lives for nearly 30 years. The links below will introduce you to many of them:

Girls We Lease

Many of our breedings are joint efforts with other Gaylan’s owners. For these breedings, we lease the dam along with her owners so all of us are the legal breeders of the litter. The dam usually lives with her owners through the breeding, whelping and pups first six weeks, during which time the owners raise the pups using our program. Then they all come visit us at Gaylan’s where together we:

  • continue the pups socialization and development, including woods walks, swimming, introduction to gamebirds, et
  • conduct evaluations
  • get their eye and heart clearances done
  • complete vaccinations, microchipping, etc
  • send them to their new homes

Some of the wonderful partners we have had or plan to have in the future are listed here. Our sincerest thanks to their owners for sharing these fabulous bitches with us!
