Joanne Gaulke and Linda Ertsgaard have been dog lovers all their lives.
We each got our first Golden Retrievers in 1968. Joanne was already teaching obedience classes and was Director of Training for a large AKC obedience club. Linda began teaching classes in 1972.
Since that time we have been breeding, training and showing Goldens in the United States and Canada, as well as owning our own obedience school for 10 years. You can visit our other site, First String Golden Retrievers, to see our dogs and accomplishments. We have trained just about every breed and mixed breed of dog and seen just about every problem a dog could present to his owner.
Linda has worked for veterinarians in the past so is very comfortable with any medical issues your dog may have.
We are very well prepared to make our home your dogs home away from home.
We have 8 acres, 5 of which is totally fenced, with an acre play area for exercise.
