Andy and I have been breeding beautiful performance golden retrievers for nearly 40 years. We have been honored by the AKC as Sport Breeders of the Year for three years: Rally in 2016, agility in 2017, and tracking in 2018. To be selected for these honors among all breeds is a tremendous honor and a tribute to all the amazing Gaylan’s owners.
Today, we remain commited to the multi-purpose golden retriever, a dog who conforms to the Golden Retriever Standard and retains the breed’s original abilities as a hunting companion. Our dogs primarily serve as competition, Search and Rescue, hunting, and therapy dogs dogs, although a few are happy, family companions.
Gaylan’s dogs have earned over 150 American and Canadian championships in conformation, obedience, agility, tracking, rally, barn hunt, as well as Master Hunder titles, Elite Nose Work, and Qualified All-Age Status.
