Welcome to Tanbark Golden Retrievers

We take great pride in our breeding program which has consistently produced Goldens excelling in all areas of performance events, obedience, agility, hunt tests and tracking.  With this in mind, our primary emphasis is to breed a physically and mentally sound dog with a willingness to learn and please, but also at the same time be a loving companion and house dog.

We have 3 of the Top five Producing  Dams of OTCH dogs with Tanbark’ s Coming Around Again OD as Number One.

With over 27 years of breeding, some of the accomplishments of our puppies have been as follows:
Two #1 Obedience Dog of the Year Winners

All but two of our girls reside here at home with us.  Our dogs are a part of our family.  Our puppies are all whelped and raised here in our home.  New puppies are handled from day one.  We use the Bio-Sensor method to stimulate their neurological system.  We expose them to as many everyday life situations as possible.  We do our best to know each puppy’s individual personality, which will help us in the placement process.


We Hope You Enjoy Your Visit !
