What We Believe In

Welcome to Golden Touch!  We pride ourselves on having a very select, well planned breeding program.  All of our English Cream Golden Retrievers come from carefully selected dogs that are imported directly from Europe.  We only breed dogs with sweet temperaments and good looks that conform to the Golden Retriever AKC standards and have passed genetic tests for genetic diseases as well as clearances for hips and elbows through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) or PennHip.

We chose the English Cream Golden Retriever vs the American Golden Retriever primarily based on several different factors:

 

  • Healthier Genetics

  • Calm Personalities

  • Versatility

  • Intelligence

  • Willingness to Please

  • Gentle

  • Loyal

  • Great family dogs

  • Easy to train

  • High Intelligence levels: make excellent service dogs, therapy and emotional support dogs

  • Stunningly beautiful!

 

We are dedicated to preserving and improving this most amazing breed.  Our kennel is family maintained and each dog is given the space, love and TLC they need in order to grow and thrive.  We only feed a high quality dog food that has Non GMO and soy free ingredients and we often supplement with raw meats, eggs, etc.  We also provide vitamin, joint and bone supplements for all puppies and adults to ensure that they stay healthy and are supported during all stages of their lives.

All of our dogs are sold with a health guarantee against genetic defects, provided that you continue to feed our recommended high quality dog food as well as the required supplements.  We specialize in matching each puppy with their perfect family based on your lifestyle, family and activities, among several other factors.

We work with all of the puppies from birth and do daily biosensor training/ early neurological stimulation with them, which creates more confident, happier dogs! Obedience training can be arranged for any puppies that you purchase from us.  

Why Our Dogs?

All of Our dogs are from European lines known as English Cream Golden Retrievers or also known as British White.  Why did we choose the European lines vs. the American lines?  I'm glad you asked!  Although they are all "Golden Retrievers"  they are very different from one another.  

There are tremendous differences in the health of the English vs American Golden.  The American Goldens have numerous serious health issues due to years of improper breeding that have caused a vast array of genetic issues.  Hip, eye and joint problems are prevalent and cost owners not only financially but emotionally.  

Disposition is another critical area that they differ.  Although not all American Goldens are hyper or all European Goldens are calm (they are all individuals), as a general rule the European Goldens are extremely calm and confident.  This makes them much easier to train and better overall to be around.

If you are looking for an amazing Therapy Dog, Emotional Support Dog or Service Dog or family pet, this is the breed for you!  They are calm, intelligent and eager to please, which makes them easy to train and loyal, devoted partners.

Why you'll LOVE our English Cream Golden Retrievers at Golden Touch:

  • We have some of the best pedigrees and bloodlines available.  Our Goldens have been imported from top breeders and carefully selected for our breeding program.

  • All of our dogs have been tested and are free from any known genetic issues as well as hip and elbow dysplasia. 

  • Our puppies receive top quality care and are also given Early Neurological Stimulation during the critical early learning periods in their lives.  What does that mean for you?  A healthier, confident, well balanced dog!
