BRIEF NOTES ABOUT “ENGLISH” GOLDEN RETRIEVERS

PLEASE NOTE THAT ACCORDING TO THE UK BREED STANDARD/BLUEPRINT FOR THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER, WHAT WE AMERICANS CALL “ENGLISH” GOLDENS MAY BE “ANY SHADE OF CREAM AND GOLD.” EXPERIENCED BREEDERS MAY PREFER CREAM-COATED DOGS AND LIGHTER-COATED DOGS ARE PREVALENT IN EUROPE AND ELSEWHERE, BUT KNOW THAT DESPITE WHAT YOU READ ONLINE, WE AGREE WITH THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER CLUB OF AMERICA’S POSITION THAT THERE IS NO SUCH BREED OR TYPE WITHIN OUR BREED AS AN “ENGLISH CREAM.” THIS IS DESCRIPTIVE ONLY, OF THE LIGHT-COATED ENGLISH GOLDEN–NO MORE, NO LESS.

IN FACT, THOSE WHO ARE CASHING IN ON THE PUBLIC’S FASCINATION WITH CREAM-COATED IMPORTED DOGS BY ASSERTING THAT THEY ARE SELLING “ENGLISH CREAMS” SHOULD BE AVOIDED. BREEDING STOCK SHOULD BE SELECTED FOR QUALITY I.E. STRONG PEDIGREES TOP AND BOTTOM, PROVEN GOOD TEMPERAMENT AND A HISTORY OF SOUNDNESS.  THOSE PROMOTING ENGLISH CREAMS OFTEN KNOW LITTLE OF BREED HISTORY OR OF THE FACT THAT THE IDEAL GOLDEN ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ATLANTIC, (VARYING ONLY BECAUSE DIFFERENT COUNTRIES OR REGIONS DIFFER IN THEIR BREED STANDARD OR IDEA OF WHAT THE IDEAL GOLDEN LOOKS LIKE),  IS PROPERLY CONSTRUCTED WITH A LOVING AND FRIENDLY TEMPERAMENT AND THAT HE IS FROM HISTORICALLY SOUND LINES EASILY VERIFIED AT K9DATA.COM. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE BRIEFLY DISCUSS THE “LOOK” OR “BREED TYPE/TYPEINESS OF SUCH DOGS BELOW.

PLEASE NOTE: AS CREAM-COATED PUPPIES ARE DOMINANT IN OUR PEDIGREE, WE DO EXPECT CREAM-COATED PUPPIES.  MORE IMPORTANTLY, WE EXPECT HEALTHY, STUNNING PUPPIES OF EXCELLENT HEALTH AND WONDERFUL TEMPERAMENTS.

LITTER DETAILS

PUPPIES ARE $2500 WITH REFUNDABLE $100 DEPOSIT. WE WILL POST PHOTOS OF OUR LITTER WEEK BY WEEK, WE EVALUATE OUR LITTERS AND RANK PUPPIES ACCORDING TO INDIVIDUALS OF EACH SEX DEPENDING ON AVAILABILITY. PUPPIES ARE SOLD IN THE ORDER OF MAILED DEPOSITS ONCE WE HAVE SPOKEN AND/OR E-MAILED. 

IMPORTANT!  ARDORGOLD DOES NOT PERMIT VISITORS UNTIL THE FIRST VACCINATION AT 6 WEEKS AND ONLY THEN IF WE HAVE YOUR DEPOSIT.  OUR PROTOCOLS ARE MEANT TO ELIMINATE WINDOW SHOPPERS WHO GO KENNEL TO KENNEL AND COULD HAVE HANDLED OTHERS’ PUPPIES BEFORE COMING TO SEE OURS.  TOP BREEDERS HAVE WAITING LISTS AND OUR CLIENTS TRUST OUR JUDGMENT.  

PUPPIES ARE SENT HOME WITH CHIEN D’OR CERTIFICATES OF LINEAGE, HEALTH RECORDS AND COPIES OF THE PEDIGREE. WE DO NOT SELL BREEDING STOCK.  YOU MAY SPECIAL REGISTER WITH AKC OR UKC TO PARTICIPATE IN OBEDIENCE AND OTHER ACTIVITIES. PLEASE NOTE;  RECENTLY BREEDER-CHARTED AND HIGHLY REGARDED CHIEN D’OR WEBSITE PENDING.

MORE ABOUT THE PARENTS–“GABE’S” SIRE IS FIVE TIMES BEST OF BEST OF BREED MULTIPLE CH FUROR VON OSTEN HERZ, BY INT’L CH BIG BOSS OF THE FAMOUS FAMILY OUT OF A MOONDUST MASTERPIECE DAUGHTER, AND HIS DAM IS THE EXQUISITE IVENTA IZ VERHNE KHORTITSI, LINEBRED ON THE GREAT INT’L CH ROBINHOOD OF GLENN SHEALLAG . THE PEDIGREE IS PACKED WITH TOP EUROPEAN BLOODLINES THAT IN TURN HAVE THEIR ORIGIN IN EARLY UK SHOW LINES.  GABE IS HAPPY, LOVING AND BEAUTIFUL; A TRUE JOY TO OWN AND LOVE.    PARIS IS BY OUR SPECTACULAR ANGELHEART SON ANGELO; HER DAM IS THE BEAUTIFUL GILDED PEAK SCRUMPTIOUS MUNCHKIN. PARIS IS QUITE SIMPLY, BREATHTAKING, SENSITIVE AND LOVING.  THIS IS HER FIRST LITTER AS SHE TURNED TWO IN JUNE 2018.

WHILE WE TOO LOVE THE LOOK OF THE CREAM-COATED GOLDEN, WE ARE FAR MORE CONCERNED WITH THE CONSTRUCTION AND BREED TYPE OF THE OVERALL DOG.  ENGLISH GOLDENS ARE, TO US, NOTABLE FOR THEIR BEAUTIFUL PROPORTIONS– BEAUTIFUL MUZZLES OR FOREFACES THE SAME LENGTH TO THE STOP WHERE MUZZLE MEETS THE HEAD AS FROM THE STOP TO THE OCCIPUT OR TOP OF THE HEAD. EARS SET AT LEVEL WITH OR SLIGHTLY BELOW EYES; A GOOD LENGTH OF NECK GIVING WAY TO THE PROSTERNUM, THE CHEST, EXCELLENT ANGULATION OF THE UPPER ARM, WELL-TUCKED UP IN THE LOIN; THE NECK SHOULD GIVE WAY TO A LEVEL TOPLINE EXTENDING TO THE TIP OF THE TAIL AND THE LEGS SHOULD BE SET BELOW THE BODY WITH EXCELLENT REAR ANGULATION. 

PICTURED BELOW IS ONE OF THE MOST HIGHLY PRIZED “ENGLISH” GOLDENS OF ALL TIME— BEST VETERAN CRUFTS 2018, WORLD CHAMPION MILANO 2015 AMSTERDAM BOB 2014 TRAMIN ARNI JOY, BY INT’L CH ROBINHOOD OF GLEN SHEALLAG EX INT’L CH REAL WORLD OF GLEN SHEALLAG, BRED BY LENA USHAN, TRAMIN, UKRAINE.  THIS DOG PERFECTLY ILLUSTRATES OUR PRECEDING DESCRIPTION; HE IS THE GRANDFATHER OF OUR ANGELO AND THEREFORE IN OUR CURRENT LITTER.  SEE THE OVERLAID IMAGE BELOW THAT ARTFULLY HIGHLIGHTS THE DIFFERENCES IN BODY TYPE OR CONSTRUCTION THAT DIFFERENTIATE THE ANGLO-EUROPEAN GOLDEN.  SCROLL PAST THAT INFO FOR OUR PUPPY INFO.

ANOTHER POINT WE WISH TO MAKE IS THAT A PEDIGREE MATTERS.  WE HAVE PURPOSEFULLY CHOSEN PEDIGREES PACKED WITH THE MOST NOTABLE BLOODLINES AND FINEST INDIVIDUALS IN THE WORLD. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR GABE AND YOU WILL SEE THAT HE IS A TRUE ARISTOCRAT–SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE FACT THAT HE IS THE GRANDSON OF INTERNATIONAL CH BIG BOSS OF THE FAMOUS FAMILY, HIS BEAUTIFUL SIRE OUT OF A MOONDUST MASTERPIECE DAUGHTER.  GABE’S DAM IS THE CH-SIRED GRAND-DAUGHTER OF THE GREAT RUSSIAN INT’L CH TODES SOKOLINOGO GNEZDA WHO IS IN TURN THE PROGENY OF INT’L CH ROYAL SALUTE DU PAYS DE BOHEME.

GABE’S DAM IS LINE-BRED ON THE GREAT IN’T’ CH ROBINHOOD OF GLEN SHEALLAG, WHO IS ALSO THE SIRE OF THE 2018 CRUFTS VETERAN TRAMIN ARNI JOY,GRANDSIRE TO ANGELO, WHO IS SIRE OF OUR PARIS, DAM OF OUR LITTER.  PARIS’ DAM WAS BRED BY ARDORGOLD WITH ONE AMERICAN STRAND STRAIGHT GOLD-RUSH, ONE OF THE TOP KENNELS IN THE U.S.  PARIS’S GRAND-DAM IS A ROMANIAN IMPORT WHOSE BACKGROUND IS THE KARVIN KENNELS OF FINLAND. 

IMPORTANT!  THE CAREFUL REPLICATION OF BLOODLINES IN A PEDIGREE IS CALLED LINE-BREEDING, VERY DIFFERENT THAN INBREEDING.  TRUE BREEDERS DEVOTED TO THEIR BREED HAVE A RATIONALE FOR A PAIRING; IN OUR CASE WE KNOW THAT OUR PUPPIES WILL BE LINEBRED ON ASHBURY ANGEL HEART, THE STUNNING DOGS OF LISLONE GARBANK OF IRELAND, AND ROBINHOOD OF GLEN SHEALLAG– WITH OTHER REPLICATIONS THAT ONLY SERVE TO STRENGTHEN A PEDIGREE.

WE HOPE YOU WILL BE MOTIVATED BY WHAT YOU SEE HERE TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TRUE FANCIER LIKE ARDORGOLD, AND SOMEONE WHO IS PUTTING TWO CREAM-COATED IMPORTED DOGS TOGETHER WITHOUT A CLUE AS TO THEIR BLOODLINES OR HOW THEY SHOULD LOOK. A GOOD BREEDER KNOWS WHAT SHE HAS AND CAN TELL YOU ABOUT THE PEDIGREE; WE ARE THRILLED WITH THE ONE WE HOPE TO SEE IN THE OFFSPRING OF OUR BEAUTIFUL GABE AND PARIS, BOTH PICTURED IN SLIDE SHOWS AS PUPPIES AND ADULTS.

 PLEASE NOTE: ALL HEREDITARY DEFECTS ARE POLYGENIC.  SCREENING IMPROVES THE ODDS THAT OUR PUPPIES ARE SOUND BUT NO AMOUNT OF TESTING AND BREEDING OF DOGS CLEARED FOR A HUNDRED THINGS CAN ACTUALLY GUARANTEE THE ABSENCE OF GIVEN ISSUES IN PROGENY.  ANYONE WHO TELLS YOU THIS IS UNINFORMED OR DISHONEST. SCROLL DOWN THROUGH THE ENTIRE PAGE TO OBTAIN ALL INFORMATION RELATED TO ACQUISITION OF AN ARDORGOLD PUPPY, INCLUDING OUR GUARANTEE.  HERE IS OUR GORGEOUS MAMA TO BE:

***PLEASE NOTE: FOR SOME VERY IMPORTANT REASONS, WE DO NOT IDENTIFY OURSELVES AS “ENGLISH CREAM” BREEDERS. ARDORGOLD OFFERS HIGH QUALITY ENGLISH/EUROPEAN GOLDEN RETRIEVER PUPPIES THAT ARE BOTH CREAM COATED AND VARYING SHADES OF GOLD.***

REPUTABLE” BREEDERS DO NOT ASPIRE TO PRODUCE HUNDREDS OF CREAM-COATED DOGS AND BITCHES, BUT ARE DEVOTED TO THE PRODUCTION OF INDIVIDUALS CONFORMING TO THE IDEAL SPECIMEN OF THE BREED. BREED “TYPE” IS INFLUENCED BY FLUCTUATING STYLISTIC PREFERENCES DEPENDING ON REGION AND WHIM; WHEN CREAM-COATED OVERSEAS DOGS WIN IN THE AKC SHOWRING IT IS ONLY BECAUSE THEY TRANSCEND ANY ISSUE A GIVEN JUDGE HAS WITH COAT COLOR AS EXEMPLARY IN OVERALL BREED TYPE, THEIR ULTIMATE GOLDEN RETRIEVER-NESS, IF YOU WILL.

ABOUT US

WE ARE RETIRED TEACHERS WITH THIRTY YEARS’ EXPERIENCE AS STEWARDS OF THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER. AFTER SEVERAL DECADES OF BREEDING, TRAINING AND SHOWING AMERICAN GOLDEN RETRIEVERS IN BEAUTIFUL NORTHERN COLORADO, ARDORGOLD HAS MADE A SERIOUS STUDY OF THE ENGLISH/EUROPEAN GOLDEN RETRIEVER AND IMPORTED SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND WELL-BRED DOGS IN THE WORLD. WE ARE HAPPY TO SHARE OUR KNOWLEDGE WITH YOU, ESPECIALLY REGARDING THE CONCEPT OF “BREED TYPE” AND DOGS AROUND THE WORLD THAT EXEMPLIFY IT.

LITTER PROTOCOL

WHEN WE HAVE A CONFIRMED PREGNANCY WE ACCEPT $100 DEPOSITS UP TO SIX DEPOSITS IN THE ORDER RECEIVED, FROM INDIVIDUALS/FAMILIES WITH AT LEAST ONE OTHER DOG, FENCED YARD/PROVISION FOR DAILY EXERCISE, AND NO CHILDREN UNDER FIVE; WE WILL WANT TO CHAT WITH YOU ON THE PHONE. WE HAVE MANY PHOTOS ON THE SITE; WE WILL UPDATE WITH PHOTOS OF THE PUPPIES. WE ALSO HAVE A “KUDOS” PAGE.

WHEN A LITTER IS BORN WE OPEN A NEW PAGE EASY TO NAVIGATE TO WHERE WE POST PHOTOS AND VIDEOS OF THE PUPPIES. 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

WE TEST EYES, HIPS, AND HEARTS ON OUR BREEDING STOCK; PLEASE VISIT OUR HEALTH INFO PAGE. . WE DO NOT DNA-TEST AT THIS TIME; YOU MAY DO SO AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION. GABE AND MALIBU ARE FREE OF INHERITED CANINE EYE DISEASE, THE HEART DEFECT OF SUBAEORTIC STENOSIS, AND THEIR HIPS HAVE BEEN EVALUATED BY  EMINENT RADIOLOGISTS WHO USE THE BRITISH VETERINARY ASSOCIATION SCHEME OF SCORING EACH HIP AND ADDING THE TOTAL; THE LOWER THE SCORE, THE TIGHTER AND BETTER THE HIP JOINTS. SUCH TESTING REDUCES THE INCIDENCE OF THESE CONDITIONS; IT CANNOT ELIMINATE THEM, AS ALL HEREDITARY DEFECTS AND TRAITS ARE POLYGENIC. AS NOTED, CLEARANCES POSTED ON INDIVIDUAL DOGS’ PAGES.

OUR GUARANTEE:

IF YOUR PUPPY DEVELOPS ANY HEREDITARY ISSUE BY THE AGE OF ONE YEAR, WE CAN OFFER YOU A REBATE ON A SUBSEQUENT PUPPY. THE CONDITION MUST BE DOCUMENTED BY SECOND OPINION, AND YOU WILL NEED TO EXPLORE YOUR OPTIONS; BY THEN HE OR SHE WILL BE YOUR DOG. IF YOU WISH TO KEEP HIM, THAT WOULD BE OPTIMUM. IF NOT, YOU WILL NEED FOR EXAMPLE, TO SEE IF THERE IS A STUDY ANYWHERE IN WHICH HE MIGHT HAVE A RECOMMENDED SURGERY, OR TO DONATE HIM TO A RESCUE SO THAT HE MAY BE PLACED WITH SOMEONE WHO MIGHT HAVE THE RESOURCES AND EXPERTISE TO CARE FOR HIM. WE WANT YOU TO TRUST US AND WE WILL TRUST THAT YOU WILL DO MORE THAN SIMPLY TAKE HIM TO THE HUMANE SOCIETY. IF ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY, WE WILL TAKE THE PUPPY BACK TO ASSIST YOU BUT WE WANT YOU TO STAND BY HIM SO THAT YOU, WHO WILL HAVE BONDED WITH HIM, WILL KNOW WHAT BECOMES OF HIM; THIS IS PART OF RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERSHIP.

AGAIN, WE ARE NOT ENGLISH CREAM BREEDERS BUT BREEDERS OF ENGLISH GOLDENS BRED FOR TYPE AND SOUNDNESS TOWARD THE UK BREED STANDARD WHICH STATES, AGAIN, THAT A GOLDEN MAY BE “ANY SHADE OF CREAM OR GOLD.”

ABOUT GENETIC TESTING

REGARDING TESTING FOR HERITABLE CONDITIONS, ARDORGOLD FEELS STRONGLY THAT BREEDING MUST BALANCE THE BEAUTY, LINEAGE, HISTORY OF SOUNDNESS IN THE PEDIGREE AND STATURE OF BREEDING STOCK AGAINST A TREND TO TEST AGGRESSIVELY, BASING THE VALUE OF A DOG ONLY ON AN ABSENCE OF GIVEN TRAITS AND CONDITIONS. THE VERY LAST REASON TO BREED IS FOR COAT COLOR OR SHADE!!!! WE DISCUSS THESE THINGS EXTENSIVELY THROUGHOUT THE SITE. WE LINK OUR PEDIGREES AND TESTING WITH THE NEW BREEDER CHARTERED  IMPORTED SPORTING DOG ASSOCIATION. 

OTHER NEWS:

WE ARE THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THAT ANGELO’S GRANDSIRE WW ’15 MULTI CH TRAMIN ARNI JOY, A SUPERSTAR TO PUT IT MILDLY, WON 1ST PL IN THE VETERANS’ CLASS AT CRUFTS ’18 ON MARCH 11. HERE IS OUR FAVORITE PHOTO OF THIS TREMENDOUS DOG:

WE ARE PRESERVATION BREEDERS, MEANING THAT WE ARE COMMITTED TO THE IMPORTATION AND CURATION THROUGH CAREFUL LINE-BREEDINGS (NOT THE SAME AS INBREEDING), OF CERTAIN BLOODLINES WE HAVE COME TO BELIEVE EMBODY THE BEST OUR BREED HAS TO OFFER. IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE UK BREED STANDARD, OUR PUPPIES HAVE BEAUTIFUL SUBSTANTIAL HEADS, CORRECT AND STUNNING CONSTRUCTION, LEVEL TOPLINES, SUPERB ANGULATION ET AL, ALL WITH OUTGOING PERSONALITIES AND STRONG RETRIEVING DESIRE. THEY HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLY NURTURED IN ALL SENSES OF THE WORD.

A SPECTACULAR SPECIMEN OF BREED TYPE, BRED TO UK STANDARD

OUR BEAUTIFUL FUROR SON, GABE, AT A GANGLY STAGE; NOTE HIS LENGTH OF NECK TO FORECHEST, THAT HIS SHOULDER BLADES FORM A TRIANGLE; HE IS STACKED A LITTLE TO THE REAR HERE BUT HE HAS A TREMENDOUS LEVEL TOPLINE; HE IS “WELL LET DOWN” IN THE HOCKS AND HAS PASTERNS TO DIE FOR.

ULTIMATELY A GIVEN DOG IS OF GREAT VALUE IN ITS CONFORMANCE TO THE UK BREED STANDARD AND ITS PEDIGREE, I.E., ITS POWERFUL, IMAGINATIVE LINEAGE AND AGAIN, THAT IT IS “TRUE TO BREED TYPE.” ANY DOG WE IMPORT MUST ALSO MANIFEST A BIDDABLE AND LOVING TEMPERAMENT AND FREEDOM FROM KNOWN HEREDITARY DEFECTS. IN OUR MISSION AS PRESERVATION BREEDERS COMMITTED TO BRINGING CERTAIN BLOODLINES INTO THE US, ARDORGOLD HAS IMPORTED FOUR DOGS FROM EUROPE–TWO STUD PUPPIES AND TWO BITCHES, ALL OF WHOM HAVE SUPER STARS AS THEIR SIRES AND DAMS. ADDITIONALLY, OUR DOGS HAVE A STRONG HISTORY OF GOOD HIPS, EYES AND HEARTS. SEE GENETIC HEALTH INFO HERE AS WELL AS ON INDIVIDUAL DOGS’ PAGES.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT WE DO NOT POST AT OFFA.ORG AS PRESSURED TO DO BY GRCA (GOLDEN RETRIEVER CLUB OF AMERICA, AN ARM OF AKC); WE BELIEVE THAT A CENTRALIZED SITE FOR GENETIC TESTING ENCOURAGES POLICING OF BREEDERS; WE POST OUR HEALTH INFO TO THIS BLOG AND ON K9DATA.COM . IN SELLING A PUPPY TO YOU OUR GOAL IS TO ESTABLISH A TRUSTING RELATIONSHIP, ONE IN WHICH YOU ACQUIRE CONFIDENCE IN OUR EXPERTISE AND IN OUR PROTOCOL.

REGARDING GUARANTEEING AGAINST GENETIC DEFECTS, PLEASE AGAIN UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING: ALL HEREDITARY TRAITS ARE POLYGENIC, MEANING EXPRESSED BY MULTIPLE GENES IN COMPLEX PATTERNS OF OCCURENCE AND DORMANCY, I.E. IN DOMINANT OR RECESSIVE STATES. FOR THIS REASON IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GUARANTEE THAT TESTED PARENTS WILL NOT PRODUCE DEFECT-FREE OFFSPRING. TESTING IMPROVES ODDS ONLY. EVEN SO, WE DO TEST FOR THE MOST CONCERNING DEFECTS–HIPS, EYES, AND HEART, WITH APPROPRIATE SPECIALISTS, TO BETTER THOSE ODDS, AS NOTED, WE POST TESTING RESULTS ON THE BLOG AND ON K9DATA.COM

DNA PANELS FOR A NUMBER OF RARE OR MILD HEREDITARY ISSUES ARE AVAILABLE AND CERTAINLY ANY BUYER MAY HAVE HIS PUPPY TESTED, BUT AT THIS TIME WE DO NOT DNA-TEST PUPPIES WE SELL OURSELVES. WE HAVE NO KNOWN INSTANCES IN OUR BLOODLINE OF CANINE ICHTHYOSIS, A LOW-INCIDENCE SKIN CONDITION OFTEN DESCRIBED AS PUPPY DANDRUFF.

THERE IS IN FACT A NAIVE FRENZY ABOUT THIS CONDITION AMONG NOVICE BREEDERS IN THE U.S. IT CAN BE MANAGED WITH VARIOUS SKIN CARE REGIMENS JUST AS HUMANS MANAGE THEIR OWN SKIN ISSUES. AGAIN, WERE WE TO HAVE ICTHTHYOSIS MANIFEST IN ANY OF OUR DOGS, OUR APPROACH WOULD BE TO BREED IT OUT RATHER THAN ELIMINATE AN OTHERWISE STUNNING SPECIMEN OF THE BREED. TO BREED ONLY CLEARED DOGS OR CREAM-COATED DOGS NARROWS THE GENE POOL AND IS NOT CONSIDERED BEST PRACTICE.

THE BEAUTIFUL LITTER OF OUR NEW STUD PROSPECT, GABE. HE PANTS IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS SIBLINGS. HE IS NOT ONLY EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL AS ONE WOULD EXPECT GIVEN THAT HIS SIRE IS FIVE TIMES BEST OF BEST OF BREED, HE HAS A DELIGHTFUL, LOVING AND FRIENDLY TEMPERAMENT.

THE UK BREED STANDARD AND THE AMERICAN STANDARD DIFFER NOT ONLY IN ALLOWABLE COAT COLORS BUT IN SETTING FORTH IDEAL CONFORMATION. THE EXISTENCE OF COMPETING STANDARDS GIVES RISE TO AT LEAST TWO PREDOMINANT TYPES OF GOLDEN RETRIEVER; WHAT AN AMERICAN MIGHT CALL “TYPEY” IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE AMERICAN STANDARD MAY DIFFER SUBSTANTIVELY FROM WHAT A BREEDER WORKING WITH THE UK STANDARD MIGHT CALL THE SAME THING. THESE ARE SOME OF THE FINER POINTS OF BREEDING THAT MAY OR MAY NOT INTEREST YOU. HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF A BEAUTIFUL “ENGLISH” GOLDEN THAT DOES NOT CONFORM TO THE MISTAKEN NOTION THAT ENGLISH GOLDENS ARE ALWAYS CREAM.

THE FORMER ORGANIZATION HAS BEEN CHARTERED FOR THOSE IMPORTING QUALITY GOLDENS WHO SEEK AN INTERIM RECORD AND AFFIDAVIT OF IMPORTATION AND LINEAGE, AND WHO AGREE NOT TO SELL ANY OFFSPRING FOR BREEDING. AT THIS TIME WE SELL OUR PUPPIES WITH COPIES OF THE SIRE AND DAM’S EXPORT PEDIGREES, A COPY OF THE K9DATA PEDIGREE, AND A CERTIFICATE OF LINEAGE FROM THE AFOREMENTIONED SOURCE. YOU MAY SPECIAL REGISTER WITH AKC IF YOU WISH TO COMPETE IN OBEDIENCE OR AGILITY WITH YOUR ARDORGOLD PUPPY. WE DO NOT SELL ANY BREEDING STOCK.

About Ardorgold

 My husband and I are retired teachers and writers, with a long history as fanciers and family-oriented breeders of show-quality AKC Golden Retrievers. We first called ourselves Gilded Peak Golden Retrievers– see relevant page.  Several years ago, we became entranced with the British in type Golden Retriever, which is often cream-coated in Europe and still rare in the US, despite the many breeders of these glorious dogs there are now throughout North America.  You may know these dogs to be characterized as “English Creams.”   This is descriptive terminology for only one type of the Golden Retriever breed, founded in Scotland during the Edwardian era by one Lord Tweedmouth at his estate “Guisachen”. Please also see the fascinating story of English-Background Goldens in North America.  

Here is our knock-out imported male Angelo aka Angels Dance in Beauly Highland, sired by Int’l CH Ashbury Angel Heart.  bred and titled by Cathy Sontag of Ashbury Kennels, France, out of Multi CH Lislone Garbank Loch Affric,  bred by Mr. and Mrs. James Crosbie, renowned fanciers of Ireland,   whose UK breed type and wonderful biddable temperament, together with one of the top five pedigrees in the lower forty-eight, make him exemplary.

Pictured below is our beautiful brood bitch, the stunning Amore Veritas Malibu.  Her magnificent sire Int’l CH Majik Inspector Clouseau is a champion in ten countries.  Her exquisite dam, CH Amore Veritas Antalia, is a daughter of Multi CH Thevenet Pep’s Team, a CH Remington Ringmaster son.  Malibu is an absolutely splendid, “doggy” bitch; she has excellent conformation and is loving and biddable.  See Malibu’s pedigree on k9data here.  See Malibu’s page for more photos and discussion.

We thus have to date one spectacular breeding pair of cream-coated English Goldens, and one young female by our Irish Import Angelo out of a beautiful American-bred 3/4 English Golden, from our original bloodlines.  

Our three English Cream Golden Retrievers live with us in the house and have spacious runs out each door of our home outside Fort Collins, Colorado.  They are members of our family, nurtured, trained, groomed and  generally adored by us twenty-four seven.  We recommend that in the event you do not buy one of our puppies, you research Colorado breeders and look for those who seem knowledgeable about genetic issues and their own bloodlines.  We feel strongly that those with more than four females and two stud dogs are profit oriented more than focused on the stewardship of this wonderful breed.

We feed our dogs a blend of Wellness Puppy (for pregnant bitches) and Nature’s Recipe, both highly rated in Dog Food Advisor.  We mix in stewed livers, mackerel, beef, and the highly rated supplement NUPRO. After learning that a high profile Scottish litter has nutrition based cataracts and that the dam and puppies have been fed the highly touted Taste of the Wild grain free food, we turned to custom feeding with the aforementioned. Please note: grain-free foods should not be fed to bitches in whelp or to weaning puppies–they lack the essential amino acid argenine.
