Welcome to Shades of Gold’s

Golden Retrievers.  We are a small hobby breeder of golden retrievers located in southern California (north San Diego county). We love these amazing dogs and have been actively showing and breeding them for over 10 years.  Our pups are raised in a loving home environment and are very well socialized! The parents have been OFA certified for hips, elbows and heart and with CERF for eyes. Since we only have a few dogs, availability of puppies is infrequent. But feel free to contact us with questions or to be put on a wait list for our next litter. Our dogs are our pets first, but they also compete in the show ring.  Our first golden, CH Granhill's Grandslam Hitter "Buddy", won Best of Winners at the 2005 Western Regional Specialty!  He was a once in a lifetime dog and although he is now gone, his spirit lives on in his amazing puppies!  We look forward to our future with our new male Winston and female Lulu!


Thank you for your interest in our Goldens!

Puppy Update:

Sorry we don’t have any puppies now or in the near future.  Our next litter is planned for late Winter/Spring 2017.  If you are interested in our future litters, contact me at  for more information and a puppy questionnaire.
