Welcome to Caledonia Golden Retrievers!

Caledonia is the name originally used by the Romans and currently used poetically or romantically to describe Scotland.  My use of the name is a tip of the hat to the birthplace of our family’s two favorite passions ~ the game of golf and the dogs we are fortunate to share our lives with, our Golden Retrievers.

Caledonia Golden Retrievers is located in Coventry, CT.  We have a small number of dogs which are first and foremost part of our family.  I breed only occasionally and our goal with any litter is to produce sound, healthy puppies with true Golden temperament.  I work towards this by studying pedigrees, structure, health issues and genetics, nutrition and behavior.  I train and handle our dogs in multiple venues including Conformation, Obedience, Field, Therapy Work, Dock Diving, Barn Hunt, etc.  I only breed dogs who have been cleared from genetic health issues and have been successfully judged against the breed standard.

I am President of the Connecticut River Valley Golden Retriever Club and member of the Golden Retriever Club of America and Southern Berkshire Golden Retriever Club.
