We are thrilled to announce this planned breeding and thank Petra Golz from Germany for the opportunity to breed Carmen to Jolly.
Our goal for this breeding is to produce intelligent versatile retrievers that are structurally sound, athletic, biddable and wonderful family hunting companions that could compete in many performance venues including field, obedience, agility, etc...! Both Jolly and Carmen have a lot to offer, they are very focussed, biddable, lots of drive to retieve, strong water dogs, strong work ethic, fun loving personalities and solid Golden temperaments. Paired together, these should be some fun puppies for experienced homes, we are very excited! The puppy pedigree has a very low inbreeding coefficient and is a wonderful blend of field, performance and conformation Goldens from two continents.
Information about Jolly from his owner Petra; " Jolly is everyone's best friend and a very balanced biddable retriever. He really has the sweetest character I have ever met in a Golden. He's happy with everything, playfull and sensible without being soft. He is very confident and has no dominance towards people or other dogs. Jolly has a wonderful temperament and at home he's a joy to live with. He lives with three other males and our daughter in the house. Outside he's not interested in other dogs because of his work ethic, it's much more important for him to work with his humans. He learns very quickly and works efficiently, very fast and very stylish. In the field he's focused with amazing game finding ability. Right from the start he showed stable calmness when retrieving / picking up at tests and trials. At the age of two he passed his first Field Trial with "excellent" and the 4th place. Jolly is biddable, honest and very eager to please. He works well in all grounds and loves water. It's always a pleasure to work with him, training or at tests.
