Puppies at Eirlys Golden Retrievers
Eirlys Golden Retriever puppies are raised in our home where they are the centerpiece of attention and family activity. Each puppy is cuddled and groomed from day one and enjoys developing a loving, trusting bond with humans. As they mature, the puppies enjoy outdoor play, meeting new and interesting pets and people, playing on a variety of surfaces, and car rides. Under our guidance, the litter begins learning clean toileting habits. In addition, we begin positive behavior shaping with recall, "wait," "sit," and "down" which gently prepares him or her for future obedience skills.

Your puppy will have begun his or her vaccination series, will be microchipped, and receive a full pre-placement veterinary exam. Eirlys Golden Retrievers enjoys a great deal of temperament observation and each puppy is individually selected to match his and her future family and lifestyle. At Eirlys Golden Retrievers, our goal is to deliver puppies that will contribute nicely to service dog programs and make lovely family companions.

Breeding stock is assessed for hip, elbow, cardiac and eye health. In addition, we conduct relevant genotype testing.

We practice a comprehensive puppy placement review and enjoy getting to know prospective puppy families. We feel strongly about placing puppies in homes who are dedicated to the puppy's socialization, recreation and enrichment and find that puppies thrive in a setting where they are engaged throughout the day.

Over the years we have also enjoyed dedicating our time to raising service dog litters for Canine Companions for Independence (CCI.)  Follow the CCI tab above to meet the CCI puppies who began in our home. Please visit the CCI website to learn more about this influential program. We encourage you to volunteer!
