I bought my sweet Chester in May and he’s been the sweetest puppy in the world. Mr. Grayland had one puppy left, and I had been searching for months but most litters had a wait list. I was so excited when I just happened to check the website and see there was one left! When I arrived at his farm, I instantly fell in love. 14 golden retrievers with puppies running around?! Absolutely a dream! The goldens have the most amazing housing and plenty of room to run around. You could really see how much love they get and how well taken care of they are. My sweet boy will be a year old in March and he is absolutely perfect! His parents River & Summer are stunning, and he has the best temperament I have ever seen. By far the best purchase I have ever made!!

We just love our Golden we purchased from Mr. Grayland. She is the love of our lives. It’s been 3 years now and she is the best girl ever. My mom has a girl she bought at the same time we did. I think my mom loves her more than me.
Mr. Grayland has the perfect spot for his dogs, and they are well treated and cared for. His farm was very clean and professional.
We are picking up our next girl to be a friend to Megan our 3 year old in November 2022. We just can not wait.

I purchased my dog Penny from Mr.Grayland in 2017. The purchase went smoothly and honestly the experience was good. However, Penny has now been diagnosed with early onset hip dysplasia. Penny isn’t even two years old and she can’t jump, has trouble standing, and has atrophy of her left leg. We’ve decided to go ahead with a total hip replacement as it will relieve her pain and will give her a good quality of life. One hip replacement runs $7,000. Please exercise caution when purchasing a dog, research breeders, and don’t cut any corners. Just think about the $7,000 you could be saving by doing so.

My dogs hips are so bad I will end up spending 20 k so she will be out of pain and able to walk and run. Her hips are not even in the joint. The vets at the NCSU veterinary school have never seen such a case in a dog that is less than 2.

We put down a deposit for an adorable puppy. We drove to Virginia to pick up our new puppy, with our kids. But the breeder oversold the litter. We went home heartbroken. He describes it as a farm but it didn’t have a homey farm feel. This was several years ago so hopefully he’s figured out a better system by now but it didn’t seem like he could keep track of the litters because he was trying to have so many.
