In June of 2022, I finally picked up my golden retriever puppy from Allan at Golden Retriever Haven, and it was without doubt the best possible choice I could have made.
I first learned about Golden Retriever Haven from a referral. I had spent considerable time looking for a one-of-a-kind golden retriever with a phenomenal temperament, and the referral I received lived up to all my expectations and more.
My 8-month-old male Henry is a dream come true. I regularly receive compliments on the colour of his coat and friendly, calm temperament, whether it be from strangers in the dog park, the veterinary technicians at our local vet clinic, or the groomers at the daycare facility. Allan’s dogs are simply jaw-dropping.
I can confidently say the beauty and temperament of these dogs are entirely due to the experience, love, and passion Allan has for his breeding program. From the moment I met Allan a year prior to picking up Henry, I found him to be extremely kind, knowledgeable, and very passionate about his pups. I was fortunate enough to visit with all his dogs multiple times before ultimately picking up Henry.
Allan’s facility is clean and organized and operated with extreme care and consideration. In fact, because we approached Allan so far in advance, he allowed us to pick out the ultimate parents of our pup (Major and Stella). From selecting the parents of our pup, visiting to choose our pup from the litter, and receiving regular updates via text on the health of the litter up until the day of pick-up (with photos) - Allan made sure the experience was first class.
Even after picking up Henry, Allan still checks in to see how things are progressing and is always quick to respond to any questions I have via text. This is a true testament to his love and dedication to his dogs. I simply cannot say enough positive things about Allan, his breeding program and his dogs.
I am so lucky to have found Allan and will certainly be adopting a little sister for Henry in the near future. If you are looking for a Golden Retriever who is calm, happy, affectionate, intelligent, and gorgeous, Golden Retriever Haven is a must. I highly, highly recommend it.
