The "Adult Beverage" Litter
Born: August 15, 2016
We expect these puppies to be not only beautiful, but focused, biddable and eager to please. They will be loving family members with an "off button" at home, but will also need a job to do. They will be active and thrive on working in at least one performance venue, but probably happier to work in multiple venues. They should be very nice-looking, versatile, multi-purpose Golden Retrievers.
Owner: Christy Thomas
Breeders: Marc Lowy and Carol Lowy
Beau-D's owner, trainer and handler Christy Thomas has this to say about Beau-D.... He is very biddable and loves to work, which makes training so much fun! He has quite the personality! In his performance training, he rarely needs a strong correction because of his strong desire to please, but he bounces back quickly if corrected. He is a very stylish worker, with a nice up attitude!
Beau-D has beautiful movement coming and going. He is well coordinated with correct reach and tail carriage. Front to back, he is well structured with a nice forechest, rib spring, a level/strong topline and an excellent rear. He carries a correct coat of medium gold color that is wash and wear. He has a scissor bite and no missing teeth. Beau-D's skull is good with good breath of muzzle, excellent dark pigment and a correct, dark eye. His ear set and length are correct. Overall, he has a high degree of breed type and is well balanced, with an athletic appearance. He is a moderate size with a height of close to 23" and weight around 65 pounds.
Experienced Hunt Test, Obedience, Agility and/or hunting homes will be given preference for puppies from this litter.
Please remember this is a PLANNED BREEDING. Until we have a confirmed pregnancy, there is no guarantee puppies will even be available.
We DO NOT ship puppies on their own. All new prospective puppy parents must make arrangements to pick up their puppy in Wylie, TX (30 miles Northeast of Dallas). All pups are raised in our home with early neurological stimulation between 3 - 17 days, followed by socialization with children, adults, and other dogs. They will be introduced to birds, starter pistols, collars, leashes, crates, sherpa bags, puppy agility obstacles, water (weather permitting), puppy walks, clicker training, and whistle commands. They will be naturally weaned by the dam.
After pregnancy is confirmed, we will accept a few puppy applications and deposits from experienced working homes, hunting homes and pet homes until the puppies are whelped, then we will post availability.
Our Puppies were raised using the Avidog System. The focus of the Avidog system has always been to apply science to puppy rearing and training to produce healthy, stable, talented dogs.
Changing the future of dogs, one puppy at a time through cutting-edge dog breeding and puppy raising techniques!

Barley is a lovely little lady with a strong work ethic and a desire to please. She is very smart and learns very quickly. She is competitive in the field, obedience, agility and dock diving. She's up for whatever we ask of her, but is a cuddle bug at home who is very happy laying at our feet while we watch TV. She has a perfect Golden temperament. She gets along with everyone -- 4-legged and 2-legged.
She is a treasured family member at home and a serious competitor when working. We think she's pretty perfect, to be honest.
Barley stands 22" at the withers and weighs 63 pounds. She has a lovely head and sweet expression. Her pigment is very black and she has a correct scissors bite with full dentition. She carries a light blonde straight coat that sheds dirt and burrs easily. She has ample undercoat and moderate feathering with a full tail. She has a very solid athletic build, powerful front and is light on her feet. She is extremely sound and runs and jumps effortlessly. She is definitely a water dog and dives in for a quick retrieve.
