We have a small kennel of mainly Golden Retrievers and have always aimed to breed dogs capable of working in all spheres. We have both show bred and working bred Goldens which both work and show. Dawn is a Championship Show Judge in the UK and has judged in Europe, competes regularly at shows, trials and working tests and has competed at obedience.
We believe in the Kennel Club 'fit for function' and all our dogs are tested for hereditary Hip, Elbows and Eye conditions through the BVA/KC/AHT schemes. We were KC Assured Breeders but we left the scheme on 16/03/12 because of the discriminatory way the Kennel Club managed the 'vet checking' at Crufts this year but we will still fulfill all aspects of the scheme and offer the same support to puppy owners as we used to. We are members of the Canine Alliance, the organisation that supports those who are committed to breeding healthy dogs. See the logo below and click to visit the website for more information.
We sometimes have puppies available to suitable homes and we have dogs available at stud to bitches who have been tested for hereditary problems. From time to time we also have trained dogs available,
Dawn is also a trained Microchip Implanter and member of the KC Accredited Instructor Scheme and runs training classes for groups and individuals - see our Training page for more details.
Anyone who has a Gaytonwood dog may want to post news or photo's of their dogs on our Facebook page. We love to hear of your progress. We also have started to produce a quarterly newsletter and if you would like to subscribe then click here.
