Our Carolee puppies are all sold on a CKC non-breeding agreement, unless special conditions and terms apply.
Co-ownership contracts with me may be available on hopeful show and breeding puppies while other signed agreements between the purchaser and me is perhaps possible depending on the availability of prospective show quality puppies.

Before we consider you as a future Caroleepuppy owner, we ask you to complete a detailed questionnaire and arrange for you and your immediate family members to have several personal meetings with us. This hopefully helps to ensure all of us that you and your CaroleeGolden will spend many enjoyable years together.
Puppies are checked by our vet and have their first shots, are well socialized, outgoing and healthy, guaranteed pups.
We have been certifying hips from the start. Buying from a vet, we were taught all the pitfalls of not being selective. OFA started the year we bought Tammy in 1966.
We have always certified eyes through an ophthalmologist, and since mid-eighties, have cleared hearts for SAS., through OntarioVeterinaryCollege or MichiganStateVeterinaryCollege. More recently, we are including elbow x-rays too.
We also do checks for thyroid and VWD. Above all, our first consideration is a sound, reliable temperament because without it, you do not have a dog for any purpose!
Our sincere thanks to Dr.Gil Plummerof Nobleton Veterinary Clinic.
His 'around the clock' skills, care and friendly advice, have been invaluable to us over the past 25 years.
Tammy & Puppies
Ch. Goldendale's Belle CD
Puppies leave our home at seven weeks. We prefer not to fly the puppy, though we have done so, from coast to coast and to the USA. Many owners will choose to drive here, meet us and take their puppy home on their knee. They have come from Halifax, North Carolina, New York, Connecticut, Montreal, and elsewhere over the years, and have had great trips home.

Purchasing a Carolee Golden Retrievermeans we stay in touch, forever, and will be there to advise and encourage, every step of the way. There has been nothing more rewarding than to have traveled from coast to coast, and to the states, mostly New York, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and to California with our beloved breed.
To have exhibited our Goldens and to have friends everywhere that have been there for us over all the years is the most important thing.
We make every effort to always breed with the betterment of the breed at heart.Every breeding has been carefully researched, reviewed, and planned, to produce ever better puppies. We have never, just bred to a 'current name' because of his record. The two Goldens must compliment each other, in structure, temperament and trainability.
We also check a stud's litter- mates' clearances, when deciding a breeding.
We breed when we want a dog from that mating, to own or co-own. Also, we only breed when we have definite orders, so there is always a reservation list.
