I bought my puppy, Reece, from Mahlon last July and love her so much. When I met Mahlon and saw the way he raised Reece, I knew I was getting a good one. He professionally raises all of his dogs and would recommend anyone to buy from Mahlon. My puppy socializes so well with others and has great behavior. Very easily trained coming from Mahlon and his family. Mahlon knows what he is doing and was very evident when going to get my puppy. All of them are very well taken care and Mahlon makes the process easy and fun. Thank you Mahlon

I bought Oakley from Crystal creek a year and a half ago. Buying from Crystal creek was a great experience, as I could see all the puppys at once and interact with them. I also had comfort in knowing I was geting a healthy puppy that came with AKC paper the same day as well as all up to date shots and a clean bill of health.

I am so pleased with her and the way she is. Truly an AMAZING dog! I have a 3 year old Rottweiler as well, I have to say they are best freinds! They never each other’s side.
Oakley is a very sweet and down to earth dog. She has her calm and sweet side and a very energetic, playful side.
Oakley is a very friendly dog. Great personality for a Goldie. She’s sweet and affectionate. She’s great with other dogs and friendly towards people. She walks pleasantly on a leash. A Very happy and outgoing dog.
I would 100% buy another golden retriever from Crystal creek again!
Thank you so much for an amazing experience!

We got a beautiful golden from Crystal Creek on July 14th, 2021. Jason, the younger brother, was very accommodating because we were late getting there due to traffic from Chicago. They are one of the few breeders allowing in person puppy pick up during Covid.

This breeder said they only do 3 litters per year – a good sign they are not a puppy mill. The farm was very clean but I could not see inside the barn or see any of the other dogs. I would have liked to have seen the mother and father to gauge how big my puppy would get.

The only strange thing is that Jason gave me the puppy food they use and said we have to give her a grain free diet or her 2 year warranty would be void. My vet said that a grain free diet would give her a heart condition. Vet was happy that my puppy came without worms and bacteria associated with breeders in IN lately.

UPDATE: it’s been almost a year since we picked up our Golden. She most definitely exhibits weird traits like biting, growling and aggressiveness that are not normal for goldens. She digs holes all over our garden. She has attacked us and chewed up blankets, shoes, carpets. She has eaten handkerchiefs, towels, earrings and sunglasses. We’ve had her to a trainer, and in his opinion, our dog most likely came from a puppy mill and is overbred.
