About Us


Red Prairie Retrievers (formerly known as Wyoming Sky) is a golden retriever breeder located in Gillette, Wyoming, with over 12 years of experience working with golden retrievers and a lifetime of working with dogs. We have been blessed to be able to better our breeding/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! 

We strive to be responsible and honest breeders so our puppies owners have an amazing experience with their new puppy. Please note that we do this part time as a hobby only because we work full time jobs outside of the breeding world. We will not breed more than what is feasible and fun for us to do. 

Guardian Program

We do not believe in kenneling our dogs full time. Therefore, we have a team of guardians that are home to some of the wonderful dogs in our breeding program. This program allows us to continue to produce fantastic puppies while keeping all of our dogs out of kennels. We also get to avoid retiring our older dogs to new homes. This way they are raised in their forever home and remain a part of our program. 

Mission Statement

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 program began in Montana in 2009, however we moved to Wyoming in 2018, where we currently reside. We dedicate ourselves to giving our all and bettering the breeds of the dogs we breed. We are committed to providing healthy and superior puppies to loving families. Our goal is to have a working golden that you can take in the field all day, but is still able to have a shut off and be a phenomenal family member as well. Our dogs get to live normal, spoiled lives as our family members. Our puppies are raised inside and socialized starting day one until they leave to their new families.
