My name is Lindsay and I am the founder of Graphite Valley Golden Retrievers. I have always loved dogs but grew up in a home with family members who were allergic to them. My parents would tell you how I used to ask for a dog almost daily as a child. Now that I am married with my own children, I am living out my childhood dream!
We live on 10 acres in the beautiful hamlet of Graphite in Hastings Highlands, Ontario. My husband owns a small business and we have three wonderful children. We enjoy spending our free time outdoors in the sugar bush in the spring, at the cottage in the summer and in the winter you might find us ice fishing on the lake. But wherever we are, you're sure to find our dogs close by!
Our goal is to produce top quality, healthy and loving dogs to be placed in only the very best homes. Only dogs that have passed all health clearances (hips, elbows, eyes and heart) will be used in our program. We also do genetic testing on our dogs to check their PRA-1, PRA-2 and Ichthyosis status. We have made a commitment to only breed the healthiest of dogs and will never breed two dogs that will produce puppies that are affected with Progressive Retinal Atrophhy (PRA -1 and PRA-2) or Ichthyosis.
