Welcome to Cashmere Golden Retrievers

My love for Golden Retrievers started way before I actually owned one. I devoted a lot of time to finding the
right Golden Retriever with the correct temperament.  Temperament was a priority to me, which I was not
willing to sacrifice. According to the
AKC breed standard of the Golden Retriever, one should be friendly,
reliable and trustworthy. Quarrelsomeness or hostility toward other dogs or people in normal situations, or an
unwarranted show of timidity or nervousness is not keeping with the Golden Retriever character.

My search ended one day when a dear friend from Georgia called me with news of this amazing Golden
Retriever he had acquired. His Golden Retriever was out of a very recognized breeder from Pekay Kennels.
With one quick trip to Georgia I was sold. I had found the stellar temperament I was looking for.

As years went by, our Golden family grew. We dove into the Golden Retriever community participating in
conformation, obedience and field. Exposing ourselves to a variety of venues, challenged us to look very hard
at the Golden Retriever and our breeding philosophy.

At Cashmere Golden Retrievers we fully support and adhere to the code of ethics established by the
Retriever Club of America. The advisory guidelines state that breeding stock should be selected with the
objectives of the GRCA in mind; that is:

“Recognizing that the Golden Retriever breed was developed as a useful gun dog  (which is the retrieving of
upland game), to encourage the perfection by careful and selective breeding of the Golden Retrievers that
posses the appearance, structure, soundness, temperament, natural ability and personality that are
characterized in the standard of the breed, and to do all possible to advance and promote the perfection of
these qualities.”

Our Golden Retrievers are healthy, athletic dogs that have their hip, elbow, heart and eye clearances. We go
to great lengths to ensure our puppies will be healthy and free from genetic diseases.

Understanding that there is no perfect Golden Retriever, except for the one that owns your heart, we strive to
produce a Golden Retriever with all of the working abilities that are unique to a Golden Retriever. We believe it
is their natural abilities that lead to the temperament and structure that the breed standard talks about. This is
why we dedicate so much time training and participating in field events like hunt tests.  The Golden Retriever
was created with a particular job in mind; therefore, we will continue to prove our dogs through conformation
and field events.

While a Golden Retriever will make a wonderful pet and instantly become a member of your family, it is a dog
that requires more than a 15 minute daily walk. They are intelligent, active, biddable dogs whose greatest
desire is to work right next to their human companion. While we strive to enhance their natural ability in the
field and prove their correct structure through conformation, we encourage participation in one of the many
venues available to you and your Golden Retriever. We promise you will discover a relationship filled with
acceptance, devotion, laughter and thrills. A relationship you will forever cherish.
