CELEBRATING “FORTY’ YEARS OF BREEDING GOLDEN RETRIEVERS
March 1978 – March 2018
March 2018 marks the month that Wynwood celebrates forty years breeding this wonderful, loving, versatile breed. Established in March 1978 my first Wynwood litter arrived to become the start of this exciting adventure. Not only the adventure of breeding, but mostly learning, learning, learning. Constant research is required to become a reputable, knowledgeable, respected breeder and to make decisions to always consider improving current stock. Research, breed standard, pedigrees, health, structure, longevity and temperament continue to be some of the most important, enjoyable and interesting facets to developing and maintaining a breeding program of pure bred dogs. Many people, over the years, were kind enough to be my mentors, and along the way I joined and participating in local and national Golden Retriever Clubs and other working clubs. This involvement offered relationships with a large group of like minded people, to share, support and enhance my knowledge and my breeding program. The ‘dog training world’ consists of humans interacting with dogs in a variety of training activities. It is an immense and important, far larger world then the average dog owner would imagine. Over these forty years I am still learning and so many, many friendships have been made…..all because of my Wynwood Golden Retrievers. Please enjoy the scrolling photos at the top of this page gathered over the years. Photos of many of the joys brought into my life through my Wynwood Golden Retrievers.
To honestly breed genetically and mentally sound Golden Retrievers, keeping in mind the breed standard and the true purpose of this multi-talented breed. To be responsible for all puppies produced and be dedicated to the education and support of all parties interested in Wynwood Golden Retrievers.
Awarded by the AMERICAN KENNEL CLUB as a Breeder of Merit, for exceptional and outstanding production of quality puppies, along with adhering to the AKC requirements for being a responsible breeder of pure bred dogs.
Wynwood has always been a small hobby kennel, established in 1978. It makes Wynwood especially proud to have been the breeder of the American Kennel Club’s 2002 National Obedience Champion – NOC, OTCh Wynwood New Direction UDX. “Turner” was trained, loved and the soul mate of John Brooks of Little Rock, Arkansas. There are very few dogs in the United States to have achieved this honor!
Wynwood also set a record by being the FIRST kennel to breed one litter that had four litter mates achieve the AKC Obedience Trial Championship title.
Since Wynwoods inception, over forty Wynwood Golden’s have earned their Obedience Trial Championships, many have been Tournament winners and placers and have been rated among the Nationally recognized Obedience dogs/all breeds. In addition, many Golden’s produced at Wynwood, have been honored by the Golden Retriever Club of America as Outstanding Producers and Hall of Fame achievers.
Litters of puppies are planned with great thought and preparation. Part of this preparation includes health checks (hip, elbow, heart and eye) on all breeding stock as well as being mentally stable and of correct Golden temperament. Home raised, well socialized, both mentally and physically, puppies are placed with interviewed, appropriate families at approximately 7-8 weeks of age. All puppies are guaranteed healthy and have the most current protocol for vaccinations.
Puppies are reserved on a first come basis in regards to the desired goal the purchaser has in mind. Whether it be a family companion, obedience/agility competitor or a field/hunting dog.
Wynwood Golden Retrievers tend to be active, athletic, muscular, good looking, with sound structure, of medium size with medium length, easy care coats. They are also very intelligent, people pleasing, family type dogs.
Wynwood does not produce a conformation type Golden Retriever. A conformation type Golden Retriever is much bigger in size and weight, has a great deal more coat, bone size and head type.
IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU RESERVE YOUR PUPPY EARLY
Wynwood is dedicated to the betterment of the Golden Retriever Breed.
