We are so in love.

My boyfriend & I got our little baby Odin from Sharon & we are so in love! He is so well behaved already at 3 months, & he has the sweetest little personality. Thank you Sharon for being so amazing! We definitely cannot recommend her enough & I look forward to getting plenty of more goldens from Sharon!


He has been so friendly and easy to train. Loves to play and gets tons of attention in the neighborhood. We get compliments all the time about his behavior and how cute he is! I happily recommend your business to them and have never had such a nice dog before.

My First Vet Visit

Jasper - first doctor visit

Dear Sharon,


I was checking out your website last night and saw that you have a new lab litter…Dad is named Jasper.   Coincidentally, I named the pup I adopted from you on March 19th Jasper too!   He is growing like a weed (around 20 lbs now, doubled in size since his 8-week checkup) and is a typical lab pup; curious, smart, loves to eat, etc.  He is graduating from puppy class on Tuesday and has been invited to an intermediate class for another 6 weeks because he learns so quickly!  He is benefiting from the training and meeting new dogs.  After his last shot on 5/15, we will explore the world more weather permitting!


Thanks for allowing me to adopt Jasper!

  • #7 Jack and Kate in the pool…both loved swimming.  Kate still goes in nearly everyday.  
  • #8  Jack and Kate with Hannah and us…a while ago!
  • #9  Kate, Jack, and Elle (a girl we adopted from the Humane Society)…they are waiting to go swimming.   
We have really enjoyed all of our dogs from you, Sharon.  They have all had happy lives.  


Mocha is fitting in so well!! She loves bed, sofa and lots of walks.


​Hi Sharon,

I just wanted to give you an update on Gunnar. He is doing great and growing. On Thursday he went in for his 12 week check-up and he doubled his weight in 4 weeks and weights 22.2 lbs. He is a good boy, a bit feisty (he’ll bark at you if you aren’t paying attention to him when he wants), but loving. He is almost completely potty trained, every once in a while he can’t hold it. He is smart and already knows when the door bell rings someone is at the door to see him (or so he thinks). He loves to be outside and is very friendly. We love him and are so thankful to have him as part of our family!

He also flushed several coveys of quail.
My husband worked with throwing the dead birds til he figured out he could pick them up. He finds and flushes the bird really well. We also hunted one day with about 17 guys and their dogs. He got along well with all the dogs and wanted to play. But when we started hunting he went right into hunting mode and zig-zagged between me and my husband and never ran off. He did really well and learned so much in 6 days.
He found the bird after my husband shot it. He didn’t want to pick it up because it was still alive so after it ran from him, he caught up with it and put his paw on it to hold it there. He is not really trained yet, however, he is definitely a natural. He gets on the scent, is very smart😜🤗


Cody is a real beauty and he gets compliments wherever he goes. He’s also smart and has brought much joy to our life. His sire was Polar and dam was Rusti. Feel free to use our pictures and comments on your website. Frost McGahey
