Delmarva Goldens is a small hobby kennel situated on 4 acres in the beautiful state of Maryland. Located in the heart of farm and steeple chase country, my dogs have 2 securely enclosed 3/4 acre dog yards in which to romp. Both areas are surrounded by pine and maple trees for the utmost privacy.

All of my Goldens are part of the family and raised in my home in a family environment. Each dog is thoroughly tested for genetic diseases before they are bred. All health clearances can be verified on the Orthopedic Foundation For Animalswebsite. Testing includes an x-ray examination of hips and elbows, a yearly examination of the eyes by a board certified Ophthalmologist, and finally a check of the heart by a board certified Cardiologist. (I do not use a "specialist"...only a cardiologist)
I do not take shortcuts on the clearances of my dogs. I send in each clearances to the appropriate registry. It is imperative to have an accurate and complete database when researching pedigrees. Yes, it costs a bit more but I feel it is for the betterment of the breed to have this invaluable information at hand.

At Delmarva Goldens, the main focus in my breeding program is soundness and temperament. I strive to produce dogs that will excel in any activity you chose to pursue. I have produced dogs that have obtained titles in Conformation (Canadian, American and Grand champions), Best Puppy in Breed, Best Veteran, Best Puppy in Show, Obedience (CDX), Agility (Open), and the Field (WC and JH). I have also produced multiple therapy dogs. But the accomplishment in which I am most proud of are the high quality, healthy family companions who are adored by their owners.
It is very important to me to maintain the multi-purpose function of the golden retriever. They must have beauty "AND" brains. therefore, I only keep (and breed to) those dogs who show promise in the field and have the structure to be competitive in the breed ring. Soundness and Quality go hand in hand at Delmarva Goldens.
