Goldwater Kennels is home to dogs of a variety of breeds. Ranging from puppies to seniors, our care provides love and attention for all who come.

As a teen, my parents wanted me to have a best friend, so they got me a dog. Back then, puppies were free and often mixed-breeds. 

In 2003 I decided to purchase my first purebred dog, a Golden Retriever from a dear friend, Maureen Adams. I got to know her from raising our kids together. As I learned from her expertise, I decided to start breeding dogs.

After careful consideration, I purchased my second breed;:a Portuguese Water
Dog, followed by a third breed: a Maltese. We now have a growing family of Portuguese Water Dogs, Golden Retrievers and Maltese.

This may seem chaotic to some but there exist this wonderful pack mentality that keeps everyone in their place – kids included.

A pup’s first 8 weeks are critical. Their early exposure to adults, kids, and other dogs in our home makes for a well-balanced dog. We have found that, when puppies are placed in their homes, they quickly adjust to their new family. House training is usually quick and easy.
