Welcome to Grindstone Goldens!

Here at Grindstone Goldens we raise and work Golden Retrievers.  We are not a kennel, only breeding approximately every 2 years. We have too much fun just being out working and competing with our dogs! We have been raising and working Golden Retrievers for the past 12 years.  Our dogs are a special part of our family and an active part of our lives. Both my husband and I are teachers and we live in a small community with our two boys. I train and work our dogs myself and enjoy competing in AKC and UKC events, such as: hunt tests, and obedience. Our dogs love to work and live to please!

We have fallen in love with this breed for their amazing versatility and incredible disposition! Golden Retrievers are one of the top family dogs, making very loyal companions. They are also known for their trainabliity and being able to perform in multiple venues: such as hunting, competitive field work, obedience, agility, tracking, as therapy dogs, and in search and rescue.

We were introduced to the world of Goldens when our first Golden, Milly, came into our lives. She was almost two when she was entrusted into our care and with help and encouragement from some wonderful friends , and mentors, Milly has proved to be a dog with great drive and desire. I quickly became hooked on the hunt games and started training on a regular basis. We continue to meet wonderful people who share the same love we have for this outstanding breed.

Our dogs come from strong field and performance lines, with many of the Nation's top Champions. We do our best to research pedigrees to continue a line that produces dogs with these natural working abilities.

We are committed to establishing a breeding program that keeps the integrity of the breed intact. It is important to us to only add to the strengths of the breed by making sure our dogs have their health clearances before breeding. We do all we can to ensure that our pups are healthy as well as being brought up in an environment that produces happy, social, and confident dogs.


We are proud to be members of the Golden Retriever Club of America Kansas City Golden Retriever Club, the Hunting Retriever Club  and the Kansas City HRC Club!
