Summer Brook Golden Retrievers
English Golden Retriever Breeders and Trainers
We are Golden Retriever breeders who breed puppies from lines that are heavily titled in either conformation or obedience (most have titles in both), are health tested, and have great pedigrees and fantastic temperaments. We have developed a positive reinforcement training program that produces an incredible amount of focus in all of our Golden Retriever puppies. Whether we are the right Golden Retriever breeder for you or not, our website has helpful tips on finding and raising your Golden Retriever puppy.
We at Summer Brook Golden Retrievers breed and train what is commonly referred to in the U.S. as English Cream Golden Retrievers. We are English Golden Retriever breeders who strive to produce only the very best representatives of the breed with regard to health, temperament, and appearance. All of our adult dogs are titled in obedience. Our older adult dogs are titled in conformation as well. We’ve health tested all our dogs and received good to excellent results. After health, our primary focus is producing puppies with good temperaments. Then we put those genetically sound puppies through a puppy raising program that can’t be beat.
Families getting Summer Brook puppies can be assured of a quality well-socialized puppy for several reasons.
European Type Golden Retrievers Who are a Part of Our Family
First of all, our dogs live as part of our family in our home and on our 14-acre property. Summer Brook puppies are raised in a home environment where someone is home with them most of the time.
Health Tested Golden Retrievers From 100% Imported Lines
Secondly, as Golden Retriever breeders who care about quality, health is of utmost importance. All of our English Golden Retriever parents have passed tests for hips, elbows, heart, and eyes and have had DNA testing. All of our dogs have passed with hip scores equivalent to either OFA excellent or good. We have no dogs rated as fair in any category. There are links to proofs of the results of all of our dogs’ health testing on each dog’s individual page. You can get to these pages through the Our Dogs page. See our Health pages for information on genetic health issues in English Golden Retrievers, how breeders test for these issues, and how to interpret and verify the results.
Parents With Conformation and Performance Titles
Thirdly, we’ve successfully shown our dogs’ parents in three venues: conformation, obedience, and rally. We have earned titles at highly competitive levels in all three. Go to the Our Dogs page to see the titles achieved by our individual dogs. Also, see our page on Dog Titles to learn which titles mean something. You can also learn which titles you can earn in a weekend of shows with any mediocre dog.
We have done well with our older dogs in the conformation ring earning a wide variety of impressive titles. However, for our younger dogs, we have decided to concentrate our efforts in the obedience ring. We prioritize temperament and health over looks. However, all of our dogs are still beautiful and they come from long lines of conformation champions.
English Golden Retriever Puppies Raised With Care
Fourthly, our adults are very impressive, but people keep coming back for second and third puppies from us because of the way we raise our English Type Golden Retriever puppies (sometimes called English Cream Golden Retriever puppies) and where and how our dogs live. Read our How We Raise Our Puppies page and the Our Home page for detailed information. See our page on Golden Retriever Puppies to see our future breeding plans along with availability.
Focused Puppy Training Program
And finally, we have a very popular training program for those wanting a start in training for their puppy. Over 90% of families getting puppies from us choose to get the training. See our Trained English Golden Retriever Puppies page for details on our Focused Puppy Training Program.
You must see some of the many videos of our past puppies to appreciate what we do with these young puppies. You can find several of these videos on the Puppies page. Also, you can find many more videos on our Youtube channel.
Enjoy Your Visit!
We’ve designed our website with two goals in mind. The first is to communicate information about our own English Golden Retrievers (sometimes referred to in America as English Cream Golden Retrievers). Secondly, we designed our website to help those who are just starting a search for an English Golden Retriever puppy and want to learn more about the imported lines of Golden Retrievers. There are dozens of pages on our website with a wide variety of information.
