About Goldenaire Retrievers
Founded in 1990, Goldenaire Retrievers is an intimate, family-run kennel nestled on over five acres in Gambrills, Maryland. Just east of Washington D.C. and minutes outside of historic Annapolis, Maryland, we provide a stimulating and safe environment for our dogs that includes covered kennels and a one-acre fenced-in puppy exercise and play area. Our goal is to provide Golden Retrievers that are not only beautiful and healthy, but also have kind, loving, playful, and compassionate dispositions. Many of our dogs have competed and have the potential to compete in any aspect of dog certification or showmanship including; the breed ring, obedience ring, agility, tracking tests, as well as hunting tests. Most importantly, our top priority is to ensure that all of our dogs become beloved members of your family.
About OuR Dogs
Our breeding style and philosophy is to invest into top quality dogs and be very particular when it comes to breeding choices. Both breeding dogs (bitches and studs) are thoroughly tested for genetic diseases, which includes an x-ray examination of hips and elbows from the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, blood tests for thyroid function, a yearly examination of eyes by a board certified ophthalmologist, as well as heart examinations by a board certified cardiologist. In addition to all health tests and clearances completed prior to breeding, we are very particular about the stud dogs we choose to breed with. Stud dogs are chosen not only for their structure, disposition, and health, but also for their overall compatibility in pedigrees. Using these criteria, we produce the best quality puppies that meet AKC standards in both structure and temperament.
Another important aspect of our dog’s lives is temperament. Temperament is a vital part of my breeding program and all of our Golden Retrievers are included in our daily family life and activities – from laying quietly in the family room, to running outside, hiking, swimming, or even traveling. This gives our dogs the ability to interact in a respectful manner with each other, with other animals, and with other humans who may enter into our home. Complete immersion into a family environment ensures your puppy has an easier time adjusting to your lifestyle when you take ownership as well as a good temperament upon receiving a puppy.
Goldenaire is involved and remains in good standing with many canine professional organizations including but not limited to; the Golden Retriever Club of America, Potomac Valley Golden Retriever Club, and the American Kennel Club.
