TimberRidge Goldens is a small home based kennel. I have owned and loved goldens for 18 years. We are located in east-central Illinois minutes away from the Illinois/Indiana state line.
I am a member of the Golden Retriever Club of America (GRCA), the Golden Retriever Club of Illinois (GRCI), the Dog Training Club of Champaign-Urbana (DTCCU), and As Good As Good Golden Retriever Rescue of Northern Illinois. In addition, I also own and operate a dog grooming, training, and pet sitting and walking business, Endless PAWSibilities.
TimberRidge is home to several different animals, as I’ve loved animals my whole life. I currently own 3 quarter horses, a couple of barn cats, a few ducks and chickens, 1 australian shepherd, and of course a few golden retrievers.
At TimberRidge Goldens, my goal is to achieve the best in health, structure and temperament and to produce well rounded puppies who will be successful in any venue you choose. But most of all, I want my puppies to go to loving homes where they will be a cherished and loved family member and pet.
All of the dogs in our breeding program have complete health clearances. This includes but is not limited to OFA hips and elbows, heart clearances and annual eye clearances. In addition, we also do genetic testing to see if our dogs are carriers of any genetic issues common in the golden retriever breed. We breed for health, structure, temperament and betterment of the breed. We breed according to the breed standard set forth by the American Kennel Club (AKC) and agreed upon by the Golden Retriever Club of America (GRCA). We adhere to the GRCA breeder code of ethics.
All TimberRidge puppies are socialized and raised in our home. They receive all necessary veterinary care, deworming and immunizations prior to going home with their new families. We also warranty our puppies against genetic defects.
Puppies will go to their new homes with a lot of information to assist you and I am always available to help answer any questions. If for any reason owners can not keep their dog at ANY point in its lifetime, I require that it be returned to me. I’m here for the lifetime of my puppies! I truly want this to be a wonderful experience and one you won’t forget.
