Comfort Retrievers®

We are breeding for the golden look and personality but in a smaller package to produce our Comfort Retrievers®. These miniature and petite dogs look and act like small golden retrievers.  This is a clip from one Comfort Retrievers® owner. Ollie was 45 lbs at 9 months.   Learn more about Comfort Retrievers®.

There are some people on our list looking for a certain size, gender, color, or timing of a litter. This is our list. We are happy to take deposits on pups, but we don’t want to take deposits if there are no available pups, unless the new owner is willing to wait up to 12 months.  Potential owners will be slotted in litters when the litters are two weeks old.

Options

Puppy Prep – a 10 day puppy training program ($450) for those interested in getting their puppy jump started on training.  Puppies stay in the trainer’s home and are instructed in basic manners, come, sit, down, and stay.  They are leash trained and crate trained.  They are started on house training, but are not mature enough at this point to completely grasp it.  Our preferred minimum program is 10 days, but we can customize a longer program to fit your needs.  Puppy Prep has limited availability – call or email for reservations.

Libby and Sadie, Diabetic Alert Dog in Training

 

Below are two videos of Comfort Retrievers at the completion of their Puppy Prep with Libby.  Please keep in mind that each dog will progress at its own rate. After 8 days of training: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZASvt3r-Fo After 17 days of training: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8Ke4lDKMIY Libby is the trainer in the above videos.  She attended the APDT conference in Northern Kentucky last year and is an assistant instructor at Best Friends Obedience.  She has very limited availability, focusing on one puppy at a time.  The puppies get socialization with many animals including dogs, cats, and goats.  They also get socialization through 4-H and church nursery.   For more information about Libby’s training go to libbyslovingleashes.com.  Currently, Libby is training a Comfort Retriever to be a Diabetes Alert Dog for a 7 year old girl named Mackenzie.  To donate to help fund Mackenzie’s D.A.D.

 MEET OUR STAFF

 

Kendra

 

Kendra is our executive secretary extraordinaire.  She is a pleasure to have on our staff and can get you started on your track to get your new best friend.

Custom Courier Service – 

We offer domestic and international custom courier service for those who want their puppies hand carried on the plane and hand delivered to the new owner’s airport.  The cost of this service is very low.  This courier service has limited availability.

 Guardian Dog Program – 

We prefer our breeding dogs to be in private homes as someone’s best friend.   We have developed a guardian program to enable this process.  A guardian home needs to live  within a 1 hour drive of Lexington, KY.  You own your dog but we retain a few breeding rights. We sell you your pup for $400 (Pet pups are normally $3,500 -$4,000) and pay all breeding related costs.  With females we retain the right to have three litters and offer you up to $1,000 per litter which is up to $3,000.  Our male contract provides us stud service.  Go to the Retired Breeding & Guardian Dog tab for more information and more dog listings.  If your interested in this program ask to see our guardian home contract.
