About Us

About THISTLE ROCK RANCH & KENNEL

Tom & I have been raising Golden Retrievers for Many years.....(over 45) & we have seen many different sizes, colors, & talents in those years of breeding. We have strived for an exceptional Hunting Golden that can also be a excellent family member. Tom has hunted all types of birds in many States & Countries. We have periodic litters and ocassional started dogs through the year.

Our breeding stock has many of the strong retrieving bloodlines with many being direct sons/daughters of FC/AFC Field Champions (or Canadian Titled) or Hunt Test Titles. Several of our dogs have earned Outstanding Sire Titles/Outstanding Dam Titles which means they are Producing good Retrievers.........We strive for a hard going, well mannered retriever with trainability & brains. All of our dogs certifications are done before we do any breeding. We use the Golden Retriever Club of America Code of Ethics as our guideline. We certify Hips, Elbows, Heart, Thyroid, & Eyes on our breeding stock. As new technology comes to all of us there are more tests (DNA including prcd-PRA, GR-PRA1 & ichthyosis) that we are doing on our young dogs. All of our dogs are listed on the www.k9data.com site with full pedigrees & clearances listed for each dog.

Now go get you & your dog ready for the field......work with your dog so you are ready for the great hunting you will have.....If you need help ask someone you respect to help you & your dog, there are many good information sources out there to help you....
