We are trying to arrive in the Technology Age! We will try to always keep you up to date with New Brags from ringside, New Training Classes, what's happening with Pete, the SUPER Therapy and SERVICE dog, and upcoming litter information. We are making an effort to present you with our entire spectrum of GOLDEN RETRIEVER, ENGLISH SPRINGER SPANIEL and DOG TRAINING information. The emphasis of our site is on OUR DOGS and TRUST & RESPECT DOG TRAINING. Please check this site frequently for updates.In the meantime you can reach Ron for TRAINING at 559-355-9915. We are looking forward to hearing from you. You can also contact Judy at her e-mail address:  promiseplus@msn.com

If you are not familiar with us, GOLDEN RETRIEVERS, ENGLISH SPRINGER SPANIELS or TRUST & RESPECT TRAINING and your first contact with us is online: We would be pleased to hear from you! Let us know what your needs and questions are. We will be more than happy to try and help. In brief, you should know the following about us: We are members in good standing with the Golden and Springer Parent Clubs- the Golden Retriever Club of America (GRCA) and the English Springer Spaniel Field Trial Association (ESSFTA). Also the American Kennel Club (AKC), the United Kennel Club (UKC) and the International All Breed Canine Association (IABCA).

We are serious hobby breeders, which means that we show our dogs in at least one venue (we show them in several: conformation, obedience and use them as Therapy Dogs and Assistance Dogs, and occasionally they get to go hunting). WE ARE NOT A BACKYARD BREEDER, NOR ARE WE A PUPPYMILL. We raise, train and show English Springer Spaniels and Golden Retrievers. We breed a litter to have something to show in the ring, or to train for a purpose (therapy dogs, service dogs, obedience...). (Picture above is TONKA).

Many of our dogs are TRIPLE registered with the AKC, UKC and the IABCA. All dogs used in our breeding program have had their clearances done, which include hips certified through OFA, their eyes cleared by a board certified ophthalmologist and their hearts cleared and listed with OFA. We also check elbows and cardiac (heart). Our goal is to produce puppies that are healthy and structurally correct that possess wonderful temperaments. We personally look to place our puppies into homes where they are going to be in the house and part of the family. Whether they are being placed as show dogs or as a family companion our goal is to breed the temperament and character that best suits a family life style: gentle, friendly and easy going. However, we also want our dogs to be versatile, whether in conformation, obedience or agility rings and they should excel at Therapy work or as Service/Assistance dogs.

All of our companion or pet puppies are sold with an AKC Limited Registration and spay/neuter contracts. This means that the dog is registered with AKC, however none of the offspring (should it have any) are eligible for registration. A dog with a Limited Registration, as well as a spayed or neutered dog can compete in all AKC events except in the Conformation classes (breed ring). In addition, we offer rebates for SPAY/NEUTER and for selected titles (listed in our puppy contract).

July 29, 2007 - Not only do we have dogs, but there's grandchildren too! Our youngest grandchild HaleyKate is seen here with MY Grandma - her GREAT, GREAT Grandma. I think they are sharing a secret... and she wants to tell you to check out the newest page that highlights our grandkids. Click on the photo to see them  -->   IMPORTANT! We are AWAY from our email over the weekends and Holidays. It sometimes takes several days before receiving a reply from us. We aren't ignoring you - HONEST. If you think your email has been overlooked, feel free to resend it. THANK YOU in advance for your understanding! (You can call).

Margaret and Jake at the Santa Rosa shows Jan 07LAMBRIAR VET SUPPLY is where we get the majority of our doggy supplies... CLICK HERE to go to their site and see the great prices! The 2 cuties in the picture are Margaret and Jake. Jake is a Pete/Soda puppy.

I researched and really want to feed a raw diet to our ADULT dogs--but Ronnie says too many dogs for that! YEARS OF RESEARCH - TRYING TO FIND THE BEST DOG FOOD not only for US to feed OUR dogs, but also to reccomend to our puppy families has lead me to LIFE'S ABUNDANCE PREMIUM DOG FOOD! CLICK THE PHOTO to learn more!The food has been specially designed to provide all the key nutritional benefits received from the feeding of raw food diets but with the benefits of 21st Century nutritional research.
There's even a weight management food for our older dogs. LIFE'S ABUNDANCE foods include a selection of nutritious vegetables and fruits as well as premium protein sources and a proprietary blend of vitamins and minerals. 

IMPORTANT! We all know antioxidants are important to us.The metabolic villains that scientists call "free radicals" are the reason antioxidants are so important. Free radicals are unstable molecules that our bodies form in the normal processes of breathing and digesting food. If they're not stopped, free radicals can damage important parts of our cells -- for instance, the DNA. Once damaged it can lead to weakened immune systems, cancer, and heart disease. But wait! There IS good news... Antioxidants -- the "good guys" -- are on a mission to wipe out free radicals!
The importance of antioxidants can't be overstated. Although they're not "magic bullets," they do slow down the aging process and protect against many diseases. THE SAME IS TRUE for our dogs! With the cancer rate increasing so rapidly in Man's Best Friend, in addition to trying to breed quality dogs, we feel it is equally important to help them in this world we share.... pollution, fertilizers, pesticides, medications... not only do WE as humans need protection from these things, our animals do too! Click on the NuVet Plus picture at the left, or click HERE to go to the NuVet site. THESE ARE THE HIGH QUALITY SUPPLEMENTS WE FEED ALL OUR DOGS! (It is even more important if you don't feed a high quality, human grade food like those listed above to you puppy/dog! WE feed those foods, yet STILL use antioxidant supplements -- IT'S THAT IMPORTANT!) YOU WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING ORDER CODE: 39963
