Golden Ridge Retriever is the place to get a golden puppy! We have two unbelievably amazing dogs from them. I can’t begin to say how much love and joy these two girls have brought to our lives. All golden ridge retriever puppies are born and socialized in their home. These puppies are very well taken care of and most importantly, they are loved. The owners take extremely good care of all their dogs, puppies and animals. I thank them for giving us the best companions we could ever ask for. How can you not love these faces???

I just recently purchased a puppy and wanted to share our wonderful experience with everyone!! We were welcomed into Taylor and Billy’s home and my son and daughter were able to pick the puppy they wanted . Taylor kept us updated on him and sent pictures until we were able to bring him home and answered any and all I questions had. Baby Frankie is a wonderful addition to our family. Thank you Taylor and Billy !!

We have had a wonderful experience with Billy and Taylor at Golden Ridge Retrievers. We purchased a female puppy in February 2022 and could not be happier! She is a loving, sweet, and healthy girl. When we picked out our puppy I was so impressed with how well their dogs were taken care of. The puppy area was clean and their other dogs were so friendly and gentle. I love that their puppies are raised in their home like part of their family! I would happily purchase another puppy from Taylor and Billy in the future.

Backyard breeder just looking to make money. They breed the same dogs over and over again, with no regard to the health issues they’re passing on. Dogs from multiple litters are coming forward with kidney issues, but they keep breeding! 6 of the 9 of the puppies from their July litter died! A reputable breeder would not have continued. Our dog and his litter mates are getting testing done now, and levels are already coming back high. Love our dog, but really disappointed with the practices here.

We purchased a puppy from Baylee’s litter that was born on 7/22/2022. Sadly from that litter 6 of the 9 puppies had past away and we didn’t find this out until the end of August. We were supposed to be first on the list for a female puppy but only one female survived. I said to Taylor that I was concerned about the health of the remaining puppies and she said to me and my vet recently that they had testing done on the remaining puppies and they were fine. She also said I could have the test results if I wanted them, I took her word. We had to unfortunately put our 6 month puppy down because she had severe kidney disease. This was so devastating to our family, my 12 year old daughter in the vet room while a puppy is put to sleep. My vet said her being born with this was high up on her list. I have been trying to contact Taylor to release the vet records to us for over a month now and nothing has been done. This has become very alarming to us. Has she even contacted the other two dog owners yet to inform them? What type of testing has been done on Baylee because I have seen she just had another litter?(Way to soon)
