Molly Testimonial

“In 2015 we got our Molly from Shadymist Kennel.  The entire experience was wonderful.  Marnie was great about keeping us informed throughout the whole process. This was our 1st family dog and Marnie took the time to get to know us and match us with the perfect dog.  We can’t imagine a better addition to our family than Molly (Majik x Luke puppy)!  Every day she brings us such joy."

Karen B Testimonial

"Marnie, thank you so much for your help and for setting the bar so high for what a breeder should be. We feel blessed to have found you.
Your approach to breeding and your interaction with your dogs will always be the Gold Standard to which we compare all others."

Karen & David B.


We strive to ensure that every puppy we bring in to this world has the greatest potential for a long, healthy life; big bones and blocky heads; and most importantly an affable disposition and temperament for which goldens are famously known. Ultimately, our greatest responsibility is matching each puppy with their perfect family for a positive, successful, and enriching relationship for both the families and the puppies they choose that will last a lifetime.
