Our goal at Wildwood is to selectively breed for the temperament and character that best suits our lifestyle; friendly, gentle, easy-going and above all -- honest. From the foundation established in our small, and somewhat selective breeding program, our goal remains constant toward producing a healthy, sound, structurally-correct puppy with exceptionally loving and loyal temperament -- that we feel is above and beyond the Golden Retriever Breed Standard. We take pride in our continued success of producing champions for the show ring; as well as those shown to be versatile in obedience and agility trials, in the field -- and, most importantly, as loving family companions. Health clearances through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA), as well as eye and heart clearances, are standard.
Like each of us, puppies are also unique individuals. Possessing differing attributes and characteristics, they to, have their own unique personalities. Knowing my clientele's interests, likes, dislikes, and lifestyle -- and learning what preferences they're looking for in a Golden, has proven to be successful in placing "just the right puppy" in each home. Additionally, this lends me some assurance that every puppy will be "going home"...only once--and to one that will be enjoyed for many years to come.

Please feel free to be as candid as possible in you responses; elaborating what your lifestyle entails, your family's interests; activities (or lack there of) and what your wishes are for your newest family member!
