Healthy Dogs are Happy Dogs
Preserving and improving the beautiful Golden Retriever is the most important attribute of our breeding program. This means our dogs are healthy, have a solid gentle temperament and get along well with other dogs and children. All our breeding dogs are OFA hip, elbow, heart, and eye health certified. They are also genetically tested for skin and eye, and neurological diseases. Furthermore, our lines are food allergy free.
Big Bend Goldens dogs are also genetically diverse with a very low COI (Coefficient of inbreeding). The average for a golden retriever is over 8% and our dogs are less than 6%. There is no inbreeding in our lines for 5 generations.
