During a photo shoot at Goldwater Kennels, I got a good look and feel for this remarkable facility. Jane Bond leads the venture with expertise and enthusiasm - it's obvious she's loved by the dogs - both Goldwaters' and visitors who arrive for grooming, doggie daycare or longterm boarding. Her own charges, whether they're Portuguese Water Dogs, Golden Retrievers or Maya the Maltese, are happy and healthy.
All dogs have the run of the house, a spacious backyard for boisterous playtime and a wonderful walkabout routine through the woods to the lake by trail.
Goldwater Kennels is so much more than breeding great good looks, Jane believes in the companionship of a dog - made even more so through quality bloodlines and giving her puppies an early start in obedience training. She brings to them a good background in the fine art - two of her dogs are obedience champions.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Goldwater Kennels - it was a treat to be in the midst of so many wonderful dogs!
