Devin Murphy

A 5 star review hardly feels like enough to thank Nancy, her family, and her dogs! Walter (son of Argo/Macy) is the absolute best, and has already brought us so much joy, laughter, and love in his first year. Nancy was so kind, patient, and knowledgeable throughout, and made sure we really got the puppy we wanted, which was a big goofy male of medium color. That is Walter to a T, and we get so many compliments on his stature as well as his temperament, and how calm he is. Thank you Nancy, forever grateful!



Gus is almost a year now and he has been the perfect addition to the family. He is such a sweet boy and a great companion to our shelter dog. We are very grateful to Nancy and appreciate her devotion and care in raising such amazing pups.


Erika Haydon

Our Chadwick’s golden, Simon, is now three years young and we love him dearly. He has the best personality, he is a fast learner, and we take him off leash almost everywhere we go. We always get compliments on his smile, coat color, and personality. Thank you Nancy! He continues to be the best dog and companion for our family.

Never heard back



We bought our beloved Toby fall 2016. We had the best experience throughout the buying process from selection and the waiting before the final collection, during which we paid a few visits before picking the pup up. Every visit was so nice and loved spending time with our pup and Nancy and her husband and learn about golden retrievers. We were in love. Sadly, after paying our pup $3,500 and being guaranteed a healthy and a vet-checked pup, when we did the routine check-up with our vet, it turns out that Toby had Giardia, a pretty strong one. Our vet was very surprised that this occurred with a premium breeder and said that Giardia a) should have been avoided by applying more care b) should have been spotted and resolved by the breeder before handing over the puppy. Our vet said that giardia is likely to have spread from the mother to the puppy. We were gobsmacked. When we informed Nancy about this and asked to help us cover the cost to treat Giardia, she was as cold as ice. She simply dismissed the issue as ‘a normal recurrence’, refused to cover for any portion of the expenses (we could not claim on our brand new insurance because there was a waiting period) and only offered to take back the puppy and return it once cured. Basically treated the matter like it was a malfunctioning piece of electronics. We refused to give the puppy back because our vet said the treatment could last weeks (which it did) and we would have missed seeing our puppy growing up and establish an early bond with our family. When we expressed our feelings and that we didn’t have the heart to give back the puppy for treatment, again Nancy did not show an inch of compassion and never offered an apology for handing over a $3,500 puppy with a highly contagious virus. We took care of him and we eventually fought a very stubborn case of giardia in 6 months. Giardia is not the most fan virus to have, the puppy had the most painful and awful bowel movements and it was heartbreaking that he could not meet any other dog because of the risk of contagion. Nonetheless our beautiful Toby was the most gorgeous lovely puppy and now a wonderful, beautiful and healthy 4 year old. In short, we could have not been happier to have found our Toby, but we are still shocked by the fact we were given a sick puppy and were totally dismissed by Nancy. After we handed the check, she revealed herself as a cold and inflexible business woman. We wanted to share our experience to help other families be more cautious before picking up their puppy. So sad that we were left with such sour taste after we were literally fallen in love with Nancy, her family and her puppies. We had this idea of keeping in touch and take back Toby to visit for years to come. Sadly that’s not gonna happen.

UPDATE 1/8/20
Nancy et all at Chadwick’s, please just focus on one thing only: you handed over to us a $3,500 puppy with a severe form of Giardia. You could and should have diagnosed this easily, if you did your job properly. Yes, it was almost 5 years ago and it still hurts.
