I humbly thank those who have expressed their satisfaction with my efforts to raise beautiful and healthy English style Golden Retrievers. I hope they bring everyone many years of joy and happiness. I don't quite have words for how much it fills my heart when I hear back from folks to know that my hard work has given them and the dogs so much joy and fulfillment...because that is why I do what I do...for you and the dogs. Please stay in touch! ~ Laura.
"We got our boy from Tradition Kennels in Arlington (now Chehalis). Can't say enough good things about them...or our dog. My wife is an elementary school principal and she uses him as a therapy animal. He works around 350 kids every day and is an amazing asset to the school. (See picture of Suhka on our "About Golden Retrievers" page.)
Before we picked him up they did a focused temperament test on all the pups in his litter to determine which one had the best natural disposition for his line of work. They communicated regularly during the pregnancy and into puppyhood. The bloodlines are excellent, no hip or joint issues, no heart problems, very healthy dogs. Sukha is 3 now, and we haven't had any major issues with his health. He learns quickly, loves almost everybody, and is a great friend. And he's happy, joyful, silly and quite the clown. I laugh at something does every day!
Its not the main point, but more than once I've gotten the comment that he is the most beautiful Golden Retriever people have ever seen.
Good luck finding your new furry friend!! I hope you have lots of happy years together..."
“I'm so happy with my new puppy. She was healthy and energetic when I picked her up and adjusted quickly to her new home. Luna is intelligent and affectionate and I'm very fortunate to own a high quality English Golden like her.” – K.E."
"Hi Laura, I truly appreciate your honesty. You are the best and most caring dog breeder I have ever met. People stop me on the street and want to know where I got Sky. I am always recommending you. You do a tremendous job with your animals. Stay warm up there! We don't live in Washington anymore, otherwise I would love to visit in person. Best Regards, Pam."
"Hi Laura, Your dogs are beautiful. Our girl is smart and affectionate and she has brought so much joy to our lives! She always gets noticed when we take her out and we always tell people about your kennel. Our veterinarian is very impressed with her and wants one of her future puppies. She is now a Canine Good Citizen! Thank you for all that you do to raise such wonderful puppies! - Carol."
"Hi Laura - we just want to let you know that Mako is doing great. He’s such a joy! Mako is a very smart pup. He has been attending puppy kindergarten once a week for an hour. He learns quickly & is very social with other pups. He’s a wonderful puppy and we so enjoy him. - Amy."
"Hi, I hope you are doing well. Our two tradition kennel pups are doing well. Theo is 4 and Luna is 3. We noticed you had an older pup. Do you still happen to have him and do you have any pics? We would like to add another older puppy as opposed to a younger pup. Luna took it out of us. We are looking for a mellow male, but we are in no hurry as we enjoy ours. I will spread the word. Everyone always asks where ours came from and I am happy to refer. Your puppy training program sounds great! - K.B."
