About Us


Our family home is nestled on 63 acres in the heart of Daviess County, Indiana.  Here in this quaint, rural country-side is where we grew up, work, and raise our family~both human and golden alike! The goldens enjoy a little piece of country heaven, with a woods to explore and pond in which to swim and train. We are small hobby breeders and our goldens are a huge part of our lives. As a family, we show our goldens in 4H and AKC events in obedience, rally, and agility.  Our girl, Riley is also a TDI therapy dog, which as brought she and I both alot of joy. While we breed on a limited basis to further our goals, we are committed to offering healthy, intelligent, sound, quality golden retrievers for our families. 

"Grapevine Goldens" kennel name came from the fact that my husband is the 5th generation to live on this farm.  Long ago, the road to our home was commonly refered to locally as "Grapevine Road".  Since both our roots and our golden children are so deeply established here, the name seemed to naturally fit.  Take a look around, and feel free to drop us a line or give us a call anytime~or find us on Facebook.

Maggie x Jack pup at 4 weeks old.

Maggie has bred to OTCH Highroller's Black Jack UDX2 JH WC NA NAJ OM2 OBHF and gave us a gorgeus litter of 11! Way to go, Maggie!  We are so excited about this breeding for our program, which should produce some great versitile pups!  Perfect temperaments, drive, intelligence for hunting, performance homes, therapy work, or just plain snuggling on the couch.  See our "Planned Breedings" page for more info.  Sorry, all pups are sold. Generally, we have a long wait list at all times...while wait lists can and do change, (I do not consider them final until pups are born and deposits taken) our pups are often sold before birth. PLEASE, if you are interested in a pup, contact me early! Our next litter is in the works for Riley x Hank Due September 28, 2014.  ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS NOW!

He looks so small here! He's a wonderfully smart guy and growing like a weed. We all love him dearly and couldn't have asked for a better match for our family!
