Couldn’t recommend more! As a dedicated dog lover, I spent hours researching before selecting a breeder for my Golden. I came across Linda, owner of INGold and was amazed at her love and passion for the breed. In our first phone call, we spoke for over an hour about our shared love for Golden Retriever’s and German Shepherds. She was diligent in ensuring I would be a good home for one of her puppies and answered all of my questions happily. After deciding to put a deposit down, I was thrilled that Linda kept me updated with Facebook posts and texts letting me know how momma was doing during pregnancy. After the liter was born, Linda posted photos and videos and continued to update the puppy families on their progress. She takes care to ensure puppies are introduced to sounds, smells, textures and activities at a young age to ensure they are solid, confident puppies when they go home. I’ve had my puppy, Alfie, for 8 months now and I still talk with Linda! She’s always thrilled to receive pictures and answer questions I have as he grows. I’ve found a lifelong breeder that I will continue to work with in Linda. She truly cares about her puppies and her clients and I love knowing I could call her at anytime for advice or a funny story. Thank you Linda!!!

My daughter and I have had the best experience with Linda at INGOLD Retrievers. We have a beautiful male who is one year old today. We will definitely return to her when we are ready for another pup!

Linda does an excellent job with matching prospective owners with puppies. She gathers information about family lifestyle in order to help make a good match and she studies the pups closely to see emerging personality characteristics.

I was particularly impressed with how much love and stimulation these pups get from the time they’re born and Linda gives a lot of information to owners so that they are fully prepared.

I can’t say enough positive things about INGOLD. I’ve had several goldens before this one, all from different breeders, and INGOLD is by far the best.

We have always adopted our dogs as adults, so it was very important to us to find a responsible breeder when we decided to get a puppy for our family this time around.

We appreciated that their dogs are family pets that live in their home (as do the puppies), they breed responsibly, and truly love the breed. Our puppy is happy, healthy, and social. He has an amazing temperament and loves everyone that he meets.

Linda gave us a whole packet of puppy info to help ensure that we were well prepared, and that the puppy that we chose would have knowledgeable puppy parents.

They sent home toys, a blanket that smelled like mom and siblings, followed up many times after we took him home to see how we are doing, etc.

I struggled for a long time with the idea of getting a puppy vs adopting a dog from a shelter. We chose this route for our family this time around, and I would recommend INGOLD Golden Retrievers to anyone who is considering the same.
