Welcome to Meadowbrook Goldens!
I have always had a love for animals and ever since I was a child, I have always had a four-legged friend in my life. I got hooked into goldens in 2003 when I got my “heart” dog, Penny. I quickly created an inseparable bond with Penny and she showed me the wonderful love and joy that goldens bring into an individual's life. Penny opened many doors for me and is the reason that I am so dedicated to the breed and involved in many different dog activities!
I actively train and compete with my dogs in agility, obedience, rally, conformation, tracking and field work. My dogs are registered as therapy dogs with Alliance of Therapy Dogs, and I volunteer by making therapy dog visits at a variety of facilities with them. My dogs also are also dog models and have been in many different photo and video shoots. They are very talented at dog modeling and have a variety of behaviors and tricks they enjoy showing off!
I am a member of The Golden Retriever Club of America and follow the GRCA’s Code of Ethics with my breeding dogs. (I very seldomly breed my dogs) All of my dogs have hip, elbows, heart and eye clearances, and most genetic tests done as well. I am also a member in good standing with The Maine Golden Retriever Club and Saccarappa Obedience Club. I am also an AKC’s Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and teach basic beginner pet classes, Canine Good Citizen classes and assist in puppy raising and socializing occasionally.
Feel free to contact me with questions, more information and or references!
