Working to combine the beauty and charm of the Golden Retriever with smaller size, better health, and less shedding



What is a mini golden?

A miniature Golden Retriever is a hybrid mix between a golden retriever, a cocker spaniel, and sometimes Poodle. We register our dogs with the International Designer Canine Registry.

The benefits of mini Goldens:

  • Generally less health problems. Hip dysplasia, eye problems, and ear infections can be dramatically reduced in this combination of breeding. We do health testing on our parents dogs to ensure we are breeding top Quality. We test with OFA, Embark genetics, Paw Print Genetics, and Penn Hip.

  • The puppies tend to take on more of the Golden Retriever look but not always.

  • Smaller size, my goal is a smaller size around 25-50 lbs and about 12-15 inches tall. Golden Retrievers are generally 65-100 lbs. We use small Golden Retrievers in our breeding program in combination with the Cocker Spaniel, and sometimes poodle to breed down the size of our dogs.

  • Less shedding, because the spaniels used in our lines had very minimal shedding and the poodle was non-shedding, this helps to reduce the shedding in our mini goldens. They are still considered shedding dogs.

Proper Nutrition

I have chosen Life's Abundance nutrition system for our dogs. Life's Abundance provides the variety in food and supplements that I want for our dogs. I am very happy with the ingredients in Life's Abundance canned and dry food plus they provide healthy treats, fish oil, shampoos and natural cleaning products that I use for keeping our home clean. 


We recently added PawTree to our approved Dog foods! PawTree is a newer company, developed in 2014, and is similar to Life’s Abundance (developed in 1999) in high quality pet food and products. PawTree uses premium ingredients and REAL meat. PawTree has also never had a recall. I feel comfortable recommending these products and including this food in our 2-year health guarantee.
