Golden Borealis

Golden Retriever Breed Enthusiast

Golden Borealis offers an authentic and original take to breeding Golden Retrievers. With everything from high quality foods, extensive positive based training, limitless love for the breed, and even 2 full sets of agility equipment, we have it all. It’s a great place to raise puppies since things are constantly evolving here.

We stay up to date with the most current and productive way to raise puppies, and we are always looking for ways to better the breed.

Follow our pinterest page for super cute pictures of Golden Retriever puppies, to view our Golden Retriever board, and to see the ideas for our inspirations for our photos. If you see any photos you would like us to do of our puppies, please let us know, and we will try the best we can.

We have over 3,000 followers and growing!

We are members of the Golden Retriever Club of America, Greater Sierra Vista Kennel Club, Southwest Kennel Club, And Desert Dawg Sports

We raise all our puppies the puppy culture way, performing NDS training, and providing puppy owners with a complete journal of daily activities, training performed, temperament details, and any other special memories or moments we want you to remember.

There are five benefits to doing the NDS Program including: Improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate), stronger heart beats, stronger adrenal glands, more tolerance to stress, and greater resistance to disease.

Our Goldens are Model Ambassadors for:

and are very proud to show off their lines of adorable bandannas and collars.

We work very closely with professional photographers to help capture every special moment.

We'll have a scheduled professional photo shoot every 2 weeks, to help cherish and remember your puppy's early stages. (They grow up so fast!) 

PM us early, and we'll let you pick the poses and set ups for the puppy's photography sessions! 

You will also receive a provided professional portfolio of sire and dam. Including: the best of the professional photos of the sire and dam to show off to all your friends and family, copies of their pedigrees from AKC, DNA test results from Embark, and copies of OFA certifications.

In addition, all puppy buyers have lifetime breeder support.

Please, message us in the middle of the night to tell us that your puppy did the most amazing thing today! Tell us about their lives, their successes, and how pampered they are.

We are also happy to give training advice, and trainer recommendations for your area.

Regardless if you add a Golden Borealis puppy to your life or not, reach out if you need help! We like to help people keep their pets in their lives.

We've been involved with dogs, more specifically, dog training for over 14 years.

We've worked with canine psychology for over 6 years studying dogs and pack behavior.

We've taught dog agility for almost 12 years taking our students and their dogs to national levels. 

We volunteered with the Pima County Dog Project. For 10 years, we taught kids - teens ages 9 - 18 about dog psychology, physiology, and behavior, as well as Obedience, Rally Obedience, Agility, Confirmation and Showmanship. Our kids took the Grand Championship, and Reserve Grand Championship status at the County Fair every year. Only one child in the county can obtain this title per year.

We've shown our personal dogs, and qualified for the agility DOCNA national championships every year since 2014, up until 2020, and placed in the nation every year we went. Ranging from 4th in the nation up to 1st in the nation in different categories.

We have over 300 first place ribbons to our name, 200 second place, and 50 third place.

Our new prospects are up and coming.

Our dogs have placed in the top 10% of the nation for Canine Freestyle as well (Dancing with your dog) 

And our retired dogs have Grand Champion Titles themselves.

Our dogs have been featured on our local news channel for supporting our community building a better dog park, showing off our awesome weaving skills.

Trained celebrity Diamond Lil's dog Sadie.

We've met Animal Planet's Shorty Rossy - The Pit Boss

In addition, we are currently learning canine massage, reiki, and nosework, and hope to apply some of these techniques to our up and coming litters, and we would be happy to show their new homes some wonderful massages for their new puppies.

We do ship our puppies via a flight nanny
