Champion Golden Retrievers - Golden Retriever Stud Service - Golden Retriever Puppies - Nashville, Tennessee - Ocala, Florida
Welcome to Prism Golden Retrievers - Located in Ocala, Florida and competing throughout the S.E. in conformation, field and obedience events
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.
Rachel's Solo MVP Contender
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.
Please bookmark our site since we are constantly updating it with pictures and information.
Thanks for visiting!

We are located in Ocala, FL after many years in Chattanooga, TN and are enjoying the wonderful lack of any real winters here!
We are personally active in many areas of dog sport: AKC conformation, obedience, Rally, AKC and UKC hunt tests, and GRCA Working Certificate and Working Certificate 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 Canine Good Citizen program as well and can provide testing most any day, just drop me an email and we’ll test your dog!
Our Junior Showmanship days are over, but we are very proud to have taught many 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, it is always the goal for our dogs to attain the GRCA Versatility Certificate (VC) after their names, which requires at least one major title and accomplishments in all three venues- conformation, field and performance.
Hudson and Robin Creekside
Bikini is Prism’s Rayce You to the Waves CD,OAJ,CCA and she is my blond bombshell. She will be four in May and she is working on her Open obedience skills as well as her Excellent Agility title. 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 with no breeders options on her eyes. She is the sort of girl who, if I were a better trainer, could be my CH OTCH dog.
Kate is about halfway through her second year- she’s Prism’s Frost Yourself…With Ice RN and she is a really challenging girl, as she is super smart and I don’t know if I am smart enough to teach her everything I want to. She’s had two clear eye exams now, and has her OFA Cardiac clearance. I’m looking forward to her show career and what I know will be a fabulous obedience and field career.
Fizz is Prism’s Gin Fizz Over Ice RN- she’s sibling to Bourbon and Kate. She finished her Rally Novice with all placements and has her cardiac and two clear eye exams under her belt. We’re excited about starting her conformation career later this year.
Edward is CH Prism’s Hear it in the Deep Hearts Core CD RN JH VC- he is OFA Excellent, always has current eye exams with no breeder’s options, and is at home with Maxie in Gainesville, where he is studying veterinary medicine along with her. He makes it look easy, keeping in good condition jogging with her and accompanying her on her many road trips. Edward is 7 years old, and is a dog whose temperament is undeniably excellent right along with his hips! He’s a fabulous trainer of youngsters and he is a fun dog who is always up for anything new.
Bourbon is Prism’s Neat, No Ice. He’s still just a youngster at this point in his life, is midway through his second year of life and is prelim’d OFA Good/Normal, and cardiac and eyes are both normal also. He’s got no breeder’s options on his eyes and we are thrilled for him to have made his debut at the GRCA National 2015 in Wilmington, OH last fall. He is currently working on a field title with Destiny Martel of 24kRetrievers.
Lyla (CH Prism’s She Knows How to Move U, RN JH VC) is retired now, and unofficial “Queen of the World”. She is in her 9th year. 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 is CH Goldruls Yes I Said Yes I Will Yes for Prism CD RN and she is a truly lovely girl with the sweetest personality there ever was. MB is OFA Good with all clearances and no breeder’s options on her eyes.. She is 5 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. When and if she decides she will lower herself to retrieve birds and swim in mud ponds, we will attempt a WC and she will earn that Versatility Certificate!
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
I wish a camera could capture what the eye sees.
Beautiful, Versatile & Correct Goldens
