Retrievers is located near Alexandria, Minnesota on 40
acres of training ponds and cover. We specialize in raising,
competing, and breeding Golden Retrievers who are multi-purpose:
strong field trial and hunt test competitors with friendly,
loving attitudes that can serve as hunting companions
and pets. We compete in both AKC field trials and hunts
tests and are members of the Golden Retriever Club of
America, West Central Minnesota Retriever Club, and Central
Minnesota Retriever Club.
you are eager to have a working dog that also will be
a great companion in your home, please contact us. We
breed for the competitive homes that will give our puppies
a job to do as they grow, but our litters will also be
appropriate for hunting companions and as pets. Our goal
is to send puppies to your homes that are well socialized,
eager to learn, inquisitive, and full of desire. If
you are considering a current litter or one in the future,
please browse our website or visit with us about our dogs,
