Comfort Retrievers®

We are breeding for the golden look and personality but in a smaller package to produce our Comfort Retrievers®. These miniature and petite dogs look and act like small golden retrievers.  This is a clip from one Comfort Retrievers® owner. Ollie was 45 lbs at 9 months.   Learn more about Comfort Retrievers®.

Comfort Retriever® Litters

The basics:

1.  We do all we can so you will get a puppy with every advantage.  Our staff oversees and works with the puppies from 3 days old on an Early Neurological Stimulation Program (ENS).  This program was developed by the military to improve the performance of dogs. This program increases the puppy’s performance in later life.  It helps them to cope with stress better, problem solve better, and are healthier with stronger immune systems. 

2.  GoldenQuest exposes the puppies to a variety of sounds in an attempt to desensitize them to noises that can often scare puppies and dogs.  We start the sounds at a low volume and increase the volume over time.  GoldenQuest repeats this procedure over weeks during the puppy play times to make the noises associated with pleasurable experiences.  Some of the sounds we expose your puppy to are fireworks, thunderstorms, a baby crying, washing machines, vacuums, and hair clippers.  

 3.  We also have a big focus on socialization.  Our pups are handled and loved multiple times per day. We offer lifetime breeder/trainer support.

4.  We are happy to ship our puppies to any country that accepts animals from the United States. We typically ship exclusively on Fridays, though it is possible to request a different day. We do ask that you have your completed shipping information in no later than 4 pm the Monday before your preferred shipping date. 

 

 

We now offer training with our full time trainer, Lara!

We hope that when you meet your puppy you will see all the love we have poured into them and see the value our programs have in producing your perfect puppy.
