We maintain a very selective breeding program, with the emphasis on quality, not quantity. Litters are planned years in advance with careful consideration to health, longevity, temperament, conformation, and maintaining high levels of trainability. Our breeding philosophy is to produce puppies with the versatility to excel at anything asked of them. Whether it is a faithful companion, future show champion, agility partner, search & rescue, or service dog, our dogs can do it all. At Heritage Golden Retrievers a premium is placed on ensuring that versatility and true Golden temperament is present in all our dogs, whether they are performing in the ring or field, or doing their favorite joy - being with their families.
Heritage Golden Retrievers is located in the Kansas City metro area and follows a tradition of four generations of golden enthusiasts, selectively breeding some of the finest quality show, working, and companion goldens.
At Heritage Goldens all of our litters come from parents that have their hips and elbows registered with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) and are free from genetic hip and elbow disease. They have their eyes cleared yearly by a Board Certified Ophthalmologist. Their hearts have been examined by a board Board Certified Cardiologist and are certified to be free of congenital cardiac disease. Heritage only breeds dogs who have all of the health clearances required by the Golden Retriever Club of America's code of ethics, there is no compromise when it comes to the health of your new family member.
Heritage is steadfast in our determination to breed happy, healthy Goldens where our breeding program pays as much attention to family companions as our show dogs. Heritageís goal is to produce Goldens that are wonderful representatives of the breed, whether involved in competition or as a loved family pet. Heritage raises golden retrievers because we love this breed and have a commitment to maintaining itís integrity for future generations.
