Gary Crispens

This is a beautiful facility where Craig and Bryan are celebrating their 35th anniversary of owning the kennels. The main building was spotless both inside and out, and the grounds are beautifully maintained. We had spoken to Craig on the phone about a Golden Retriever to replace our beloved Stryker. Craig brought out Knox for a meet and greet and provided excellent information about Knox’s background, breeding, temperament, personality and some possible challenges of ownership. We were highly impressed with Craig and his straightforward assessment and and proceeded to add Knox to our family.

If you are interested in some Championship quality puppies, please refer to their website for pictures and availability. I can also highly recommend Westergaard Kennels as a wonderful boarding facility in a beautiful location.


Matthew Witte

Top National breeder of Golden Retrievers and a top notch kennel on a farm in North Carolina. The owners are warm and helpful. Highly recommend!

We brought our dog Oakley home 3 years ago, he was our pandemic puppy, and we couldn’t be happier. He is amazing and I wish I could have 10 more! Everywhere we take Oakley he is so well behaved and loves people. He plays gently with our rambunctious 9 year old son. Craig and Bryan are so helpful and friendly. We only board Oakley with them and tell all our friends (and strangers too!) to get your next dog from them. Simply the best!
