OFA & Genetic
At Red Prairie Retrievers we raise and train Golden Retrievers in Gillette, Wyoming. Our dogs are always part of our family, in our home every day. We were blessed with our first golden in 2007 and our first litter of goldens in 2009. We formally established our breeding program in 2015 after a lifetime of experience working with dogs. We are active participants in HRC and AKC field events. It is our belief that the more we do with our dogs, the better their lives are, so we also train our dogs towards earning their CGC+, TKN+, VHMA and participate in other fun sports like NADD Dock Diving, Air Retrieve, FastCat and Scent Work! We are also very blessed to get to work with a handful of trainers, including service and field to produce working service dogs that are donated to handlers in need. We do work with a couple co-own homes from time to time to ensure we keep our dogs out of kennels and in family homes!
Our dogs are tested and cleared for GRCA recommended health tests including (OFA/pennhip) hip, OFA elbow, eye, cardiac, and recessive genetic diseases. We have been blessed to be able to better our breeding and training program as we have grown and become active in education, research, and more involved in sport work and service work. These opportunities have allowed us to connect with other breeders and trainers along the way!
Red Prairie Retrievers
We breed not only to better the working golden retriever breed, but also to be a positive impact within the lives of others. Our dogs are valuable service team members, sport dogs, and family members. It is our goal to continue to provide happy, healthy puppies for our puppy buyers and handlers. Our main goal is to provide a family with a wonderful companion.
All of our dogs are a part of our family. We do not kennel our dogs full-time, they are allowed in our house at any time, and 90% of the time are laying at my feet! We do not breed for color or pedigree only. We breed for capable, proven working golden retrievers. Our golden retrievers have been proven not only in a family setting, but also active working partners in field, service, and sport.
