We are very excited to announce this planned breeding. It brings together some of our heart dogs we have hunted over. Our goal for this breeding is to produce intelligent, athletic, sound retrievers with lots of drive, speed, focus and strong work ethic. Paired together these should be really fun pups for experienced homes to participate in performance venues (obedience, rally, agility, tracking) and hunt tests. Both Remy and Gin have fun loving sweet personalities, solid Golden temperaments and a good off switch in the house. The puppy pedigree has a low inbreeding coefficient and is a wonderful blend of field and performance Goldens that have excelled in many venues.
Remy is owned by John Hutchinson & Diana Hamilton, Comox, BC. John has owned Golden Retrievers for over 50 years and when his search was on for a new puppy he wanted an incredible hunting companion and family member – he found him!
What John & Diana have to say about Remy; “Whether he is chasing bumpers in the backyard, or retrieving a duck in the field, he is always at top speed--with a flying U-turn pickup. He is a strong, remarkable athlete. His marking ability is excellent, and he is a talented, focussed tracker. Remy is well muscled, and has a very handsome masculine head. He has always had perfect health. He is totally self-confident, yet never tries to dominate in any situation. He is willing, biddable and has an amazing work ethic. He has a good on-off switch. In the field, Remy is all business. In the house, he is a laid back member of the family: an affectionate and sweet natured pet. He is clean, never destructive, and secure of his place in the hierarchy. Remy is everything we wanted in a Golden.”
Remy has a wonderful Golden expression, pleasing head, dark eye and correct scissors bite, no missing teeth and very good pigment. He stands just shy of 24” tall at the withers, weighs 78lbs, is in great working condition and has wonderful athleticism and speed. He carries a quick dry wavy coat with good undercoat and decent length of feathering for a hunting retriever. He has good bone, powerful front, good length of neck, strong topline and excellent tail set & carriage.
Remy’s pedigree combines exceptional field, obedience and performance pedigrees with really good longevity in direct descendants.
About Gin; Gin is a heartwarming bundle of energy with a zest for life and wonderful disposition. She has tons of play and prey drive and desire to please. Gin measures 22 1/2 at the whithers and weighs 60 lbs. She lives to hunt, is very fast to catch moving prey and has a wonderful soft mouth. For information please visit Gin's Webpage on this website.
