Our History

It all started in 2012. That was when we bought our first English Cream Golden Retriever, Toby. As Toby began to grow up, I became more and more impressed. Toby had an amazing ability to learn – it was so simple to teach him, also, he was very docile and submissive. As time went on, I began to discuss with my wife about whether to purchase a female to breed. Eventually, we got another English Cream Golden Retriever, Della. She was gorgeous! Once Della grew up, we made the decision to breed her with a sire, Storm, from Iowa.

One of my favorite parts of breeding dogs is the interaction that I get with people. We have people that are waiting for their dogs…and they are just so excited. To be instrumental in that excitement and seeing the joy in people’s faces is something that I wasn’t prepared for but…it is amazing!

Our Process

We do our best to keep our process simple. First things first, we announce the birth of the litter. When this happens we provide the pedigree of the sire and dam along with health certifications. At this point, we increase our search for potential parties that would be interested. You, as the customer, get to select the pup that you want. It’s that simple.

We then work together to confirm transportation information and we send you a contract to review. Once you are 100% sure you are ready to proceed, there is a $500 deposit and we all get to sign the contract. We follow up by maintaining vaccinations up the shipping date along with a veterinarian certificate 10 days prior to shipping. We want to make sure that you are getting a healthy pup.

You will arrange shipping through airlines out of Dickinson or Bismarck, ND. We recommend that a K9 travel agency is used, such as Sonshine Pet Express. We will provide a kennel for the puppy to be shipped in. Once the puppy is in the hands of the chosen airline, Green River Goldens is not longer responsible for the well being of the dog.
