GoldenQuest™ has sold, donated, and discounted dogs for all types of work for over thirty years.  Our first therapy dog went to nursing homes and became Kansas Dog of the Year.  We have donated dogs for physical support, hearing alert, guide work, seizure alert, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), emotional support, schools, nursing homes, therapists, and medical detection in a cancer screening program.  We have also had multiple dogs used in various service dog breeding programs.

We continue to offer service dog candidates – a potential service dog is one that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability.  Before you request a service dog, you need to understand your needs and what a service dog has to offer you.  If your need requires physical support for mobility assistance, we would suggest our golden retrievers.  Our goldens participate in our health and longevity program.  We have produced many service dogs with our golden retriever lines.

If you need a service dog for a non physical support tasks or a therapy dog, we suggest that you consider our Comfort Retrievers®.  We feel that they may be the perfect service dog for non-mobility tasks.  Our Comfort Retrievers® have the wonderful temperament and willingness to learn of a golden retriever.  The poodle infusion gives them increased intelligence, reduced size, and some hypoallergenic and reduced shedding traits.  Our Comforts®  also have a coat that is much easier to handle than a poodle’s or a traditional goldendoodle.  With our health and longevity program, we believe that our dogs will on average be healthier, live longer, and have a much longer service life than a lab, golden retriever and most other service dogs.  Our goal is to breed dogs that age gracefully and don’t have the common disorders like osteoarthritis that afflicts many breeds as they age.  In addition, the Comfort’s® structure and temperament should produce a low ‘fear factor’ for the members of the community that have dog fears.

There is a great need for quality working dogs. We have many therapy, service, and emotional support dogs working in the United States.
