Sunshine Kennels was established in 1988 for the purpose of raising and breeding superior Golden Retrievers for hunting companions, field trials and hunt tests, agility, obedience, rally and/or tracking. Some of our pups are working service dogs. One of the most important things in my breeding program is to place my puppies into loving homes where they will have the opportunity to share a mutual interest in performance competitions with their families and be a loving member of their household.
The objective of our retriever breeding program stresses physical and mental soundness as well as a high degree of trainability. Every dog in my breeding program is carefully screened. They are CHIC Rated: OFA Hip, Elbow rated, Eye Cerf, Elbow Clearance, Heart, and Thyroid. Sunshine Goldens produce intelligent retrievers that love to work and are happy family companions as well. We use Hunt Test Proven and Field Trial Studs, some that are titled in Obedience- Agility. We will use a Show Champion only if it is titled in a Performance Field. One of the most important things in my breeding program is to place my puppies into loving homes where they will have the opportunity to share a mutual interest in performance competitions with their families.
Puppies are carefully raised in the home environment and socialized accordingly. They are individually stimulated daily for maximum potential. Puppies are introduced to crates, they have started to retrieve toys, bumpers and birds; water introduction if weather permits. Puppies have dew claws removed, vaccinations appropriate for age, carefully vet-checked, and HOME AGAIN microchip. Our pups are sold with a written guarantee for health, hips, eyes, heart, and elbows.
We place our puppies with a Limited Registration. This means that the puppy is sold with a registration that makes them eligible for performance competitions, but no litters produced by that dog are eligible for registration. We would lift the limited registration only when the dog passes its second birthday and has had all its clearances in hips, eyes, heart, elbows and they must have earned a performance title.
