We are Golden Retriever owners with a limited but well-planned breeding program, done in close consultation with our dogs' breeder, Gayle Watkins,
, NY. This means that each breeding is of tremendous importance to us and that we put all our efforts into caring for, socializing, and placing our pups.
Even with our limited co-breeding program, the dogs from our first three litters are competing successfully in obedience, hunt tests, rally, tracking, and agility. We have produced, co-breeding with Gayle and under the Topmast prefix, from Abbi's three litters and Chime's litters:
* A Canadian Champion and UKC Champion.
* Three Master Hunters and one needing only a couple more passes for her MH, four Senior Hunters, and several Junior Hunters. Three dogs with their WCX and several with their WC. We have several that are now training for hunt tests, with at least one pup from each litter with a hunting title.
* A MACH2, a MACH and several dogs with their MX or MXJ working towards their Master Agility Championship (MACH).
* Dogs with their AX or AXJ, working on their MX & MXJ.
* Ten dogs that have obtained their NAJ or NA and/or their OA or OAJ titles.
At least 17 dogs that are running in/or training in Agility.
* Dogs competing in FAST, with two having their Master Excellent Fast titles.
* A CT (Champion Tracker) Tracking dog who obtained her TD at the GRCA National Specialty and who recently passed her VST to complete her CT title, and our own Kerri, who is our first TD ever.
* Three dogs with their UDX two with Obedience Master titles, another brand new UD, two with a CDX, and several with a CD working towards their CDX, and several working in obedience.
* Twelve dogs with Rally titles, with several showing in Rally.
* TWELVE dogs with their Certificates of Canine Good Citizenship (CGC), from AKC.
*SIX of the eleven Traveling litter had their CGC's by 9 months of age.
* Three of the Traveling pups are active in Dock Diving, with one with her U-Junior Jumping (U-JJ) title. Two have their AKC Puppy Star Program certificates.
* Four Certified Therapy Dogs with several actively doing therapy work.
* Several wonderful hunting companions.
* Eleven dogs that have obtained their Certificates of Conformation Assessment (CCA) from the Golden Retriever Club of America.
* Four dogs that have CPE Agility titles.
* Two dogs that have qualified in NADAC, with one having several Outstanding Novice titles.
* Three dogs that have USDAA Novice Agility titles and two that have Level 2 titles.
* All are well-loved family members.
These pups helped Abbi become an Outstanding Dam, as bestowed from the Golden Retriever Club of America and Chime's pups are helping her get her OD title soon too.
We now have our second generation pups from our breeding program. Chime had two litters, the Gemstone and Outer Space Litters. Karli had her first litter in 2014, the Liquor Litter. Bonny had her first litter in the fall of 2014, the Road Litter.
