Candor Golden Retrievers is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. My husband and I have owned golden retrievers since 1992 when we purchased our first golden, Casey, from Gloria Delorme at Waldenway Kennels. Keith and I both grew up with dogs and both had an intense passion for goldens. Gloria was a great mentor from whom we learned so much about raising and competing with goldens. Our first two females came from Waldenway and we leased back both females to Gloria to allow her to breed these beautiful dogs.
Our dogs are our children and they live with us in our house and sleep on our bed. We only have a maximum of three dogs at any given time and as a result we breed only occasionally. All the dogs we breed have at a minimum their hips and elbow clearances, their heart clearances, and their eye clearances (annually) all cleared and on record with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. We breed for soundness of temperament and with the best practices as outlined by the Golden Retriever Clubs of Canada and America.
While we love to compete in the show ring as well as do performance work (obedience, agility, hunting etc.) we breed primarily to produce wonderful pets. We believe that dogs should be dogs first and should love what they do. All pets are sold with non-breeding contracts.
We maintain an avid interest in all puppies we place in wonderful new homes and we love to keep in touch and hear how they are all doing.
