Champion Golden Retrievers   -   Golden Retriever Stud Service   -   Golden Retriever Puppies - Nashville, Tennessee -  Ocala, Florida
Welcome to Prism Golden Retrievers                           We are now in Ocala, Florida and are loving this weather!

We are tentatively planning a fall breeding - if that timetable suits you and you are interested in what we produce, please inquire.

We usually have a list of folks waiting for our versatile and beautiful puppies, and getting on a list early -whether with us or with another breeder- allows you and the breeder to get to know each other and feel comfortable with your choice of what will be a lifelong relationship.

We are dedicated to producing quality Golden Retrievers, with an emphasis on correct temperament, correct structure, and lifelong health. Our breeding arose as a consequence of our desire to be the breeder of the wonderful dogs we so enjoy showing!

We are very proud of our small but successful breeding program.

Our dogs all possess every clearance required by the GRCA Code of Ethics: hip, elbow, cardiac done by a cardiologist and current eye exams. We have invested  as well in DNA testing  for our breeding dogs for conditions such as prcd/PRA and ichthyosis. These are simple recessives and can be eliminated with selective breeding.

We offer stud service to select bitches who possess all the COE clearances and whose pedigrees are complementary.

It is always our intent to bring to the future a better dog, to improve on what we have, and to conduct ourselves with the utmost in ethical behavior in all things.  The Breed Standard as well as the breed purpose is the guideline we use in any litter we produce.

We are newly located in Ocala, FL. After years in beautiful Chattanooga,Tennessee, we look forward to finding new training buildings, new cohorts to train with, and much warmer weather!

We are personally active in many areas of dog sport: AKC conformation, obedience, Rally, hunt tests, and GRCA Working Certificate and WC Excellent testing, as well as being huge fans of GRCA’s Certificate of Conformation Assessment (CCA) program. I am a CGC Evaluator for the AKC program as well.

Our Junior Showmanship days are over, as Maxie has aged out - but we still teach classes to wonderful young handlers, and are proud that we have been able to have a positive influence on so many kids.

We believe a balanced Golden has titles on each end of his/her name, and we also believe a Golden has an innate need to do a job. To that end, we use a wonderful field trainer to do the field titling and we do obedience and tracking ourselves. Maxie shows our dogs in conformation, and we have versatile and beautiful dogs who can do it all!

Bikini (Prism’s Rayce You to the Waves CD) is my blond bombshell. She is 2 1/2, and is working on her Open obedience  skills. Then she will hit the breed ring to start on her championship. She’s correct and smart and I don’t doubt she will accomplish all we want to do with her career. She came back OFA Excellent/normal on her final hip and elbow assessments and has all her clearances now. She is the sort of girl who, if I were a better trainer, could be my CH OTCH dog… and with the move to Florida, I hope we be accepted into the hands of the best trainers there are here and make strides to that goal. She got to give Lure Coursing a try and qualified, so next time I have her at a show, we’ll go for another fun runabout!

Eden (Prism’s Stay in the Garden) is working on Novice skills, and I’d imagine we’ll get her RN and CD knocked our one day soon. She has a natural to hand delivery and loves retrieving, and I hope that this is her year for field work.
Her final OFAs came back Excellent/Normal, and she has cardiac and eye clearances. She just turned 2.

Poppy (Double R-Prism’s Popular At-Traction) is a Cody X Denver daughter, and is a year old. She’s a little pistol! She lives with Maxie but spends time with her co-owner in Georgia as well getting fieldwork onto her list of future achievements.  She has ben in a few shows ( won her class all 4 days, and then went on to be Best of Breed Puppy, and then Group 1 Puppy) and she’s working on Novice skills and is nearly ready to do her CD.
Beautiful, Versatile & Correct Goldens
Golden Retrievers ~ Ocala Florida

The Boys:

Hudson (GCH Prism’s Night Moves, RN WC VC) is 7 1/2  years old, and he is loving his new life here in Ocala, Florida- healthy, happy, and handsome. He’s a wonderful companion, always reliable and a good boy to spend time with and I’m discovering he is a fan of the A/C, which I never knew before. He is so much fun to live with, knows no strangers. There’s no more fun than brushing him out and seeing his gorgeous furnishings glisten in the sun! Hud is OFA Good, with all his clearances.

Edward (CH Prism’s Hear it in the Deep Heart’s Core, CD RN JH VC) is 5 1/2, and he’s made the move to Gainesville seamlessly. Maxie began vet school at the University of Florida in August, and she and Edward are working on Open obedience skills and will make his debut in that arena during her breaks. Edward is OFA Excellent with all his clearances.

Both boys have sired really lovely litters this year, and we are grateful to the breeders who brought their girls to our boys and then raised up the gorgeous puppies that resulted!


The Girls:

Lyla (CH Prism’s She Knows How to Move U, RN JH VC) is retired now, and unofficial “Queen of the World”. She turned 7 in July. Lyla is OFA Excellent with all her clearances in place. She’s living the life of a Florida retiree, on a lake, with her new best friend and they are quite the team. I miss my daily time with her, but I am happy for her that she has her own person to walk with, go on trips with, and sleep with, and never has to share that time.

Molly Bloom (CH Goldruls Yes I Said Yes I Will Yes for Prism CD RN VC) is a truly lovely girl with the sweetest personality there ever was. MB is OFA Good with all clearances, of course. She is 4 and shares a birthday with my daddy!. She carries an abundant coat, is super smart and an easy to live with dog.  Not a huge fan of field work, she does love to wheel through obedience drills.

We love our new place!

The dogs are so happy with the huge paddock that they race through en mass when one spots a squirrel in a palm tree. I never really thought about it, but they didn’t have the temptation of squirrels in Tennessee so these are new and exciting creatures for them to watch and chase. I’d actually never heard Eden bark until we moved here and she spotted her first squirrel!

There is nothing more beautiful than watching four gorgeous dogs run across a green field with brightly blooming azaleas in the background and the sun reflecting off their coats as they run fluidly.

I wish a camera could capture what the eye sees.
