Gracie - born April 3/21 - came home to us at 8 weeks old June 4/21
We had no idea how to purchase a puppy online let alone from another province during a pandemic. After hours of searching the internet it paid off, we found Golden Retriever Haven on the CKC website. We contacted Allan, told him what we where looking for in a service dog, he was very responsive to our needs.
We knew from hours of research, emails and phone calls that his price was right and we were pleasantly surprised that the shipping cost wasn't that bad either. We had a in depth virtual tour of Haven’s kennel and this is when we saw stunning Stella for the first time as she walked at Allan’s side expecting any day. After lots of thought our decision was made we chose Golden Retriever Haven.
The dogs are all so beautiful, they all look so happy and well cared for. The kennel is clean and organized. We were very impressed with the kennel and how knowledgeable and helpful Allan was in guiding us to choose the right puppy. He kept in touch with us and sent videos and updates. Then the text came it was time for a virtual meeting to make our pick.
Our daughter wanted a female. Stella had 5 females, Allan picked 3 he thought would make good service dogs. He explained all 3 would make a wonderful companion/service dog so now the choice would be our preference on look. Oh how we wanted to take all 3, we chose our Sunshine Gracie.
Through the whole process Allan was always open to questions, offered advice, guided us along the way and took the time to make a careful selection for our daughter’s needs. He set up the shipping, emailed us the waybill and told us when to be at the airport to pick up our precious cargo. Finally the day came that we waited so patiently for, that morning Allan texted a picture of Gracie at the airport and let us know our precious cargo was checked in. Everything went so smooth through the whole process not a glitch right down to the minute Gracie was in our hands.
We hadn’t arrived home from the airport when we received a text from Allan checking to be sure everything was ok. We definitely recommend Golden Retriever Haven whether your searching for a service dog, a therapy dog or a companion/family member, Allan makes the process easy.
Gracie is not only an eye catching beauty, she is intelligent with a beautiful nature, we are so proud of her. We are sure that Allan selected the perfect service dog/companion for our household. We know we made the right decision in choosing one of Golden Retriever Haven’s beauties.
Thank you Allan
