Welcome to our Augusta Golden Retrievers. Our Goldens are known for their trainability, longevity and quality companionship. Using the Golden Retriever Club of America's standard as our blue print, our Goldens are excellent representations of the breed who are intelligent, highly trainable and are outstanding companions. Longevity and health are also of utmost importance and we are proud to note that our Goldens and their relatives frequently live to their mid teens.
About Augusta Goldens.....
My passion for Goldens dates to 1987 when I acquired my first Golden Chuck (Malagold For The Good Times AM/CAN CDX). Chuck and I were inseparable. True soul mates. And, because of him, my life changed forever.
In 1994 the first Golden carried the Augusta kennel name, Kryie Daunining of Augusta UD, MH, TD, WCX, VCX. Gracie was an amazing dog who taught me so much and was a crucial part of the creation of Augusta Dog Training. Both Chuck and Grace are in the bloodlines of all of the Augusta Goldens.
In the years since, with a VERY limited breeding program, we have produced true multi- purpose dogs earning upper level obedience, hunt test and tracking titles along with Best in Show and High in Trial Honors.
Our Goldens are an important part of our dog training businesses participating in private training lessons, attending presentations at area schools and appearing on Kare-11 with Kathryn.
In the autumn they serve as working waterfowl and upland game hunters in the fields of Minnesota and North and South Dakota.
Although we are proud of our dogs' accomplishments and appreciate their versatility, what we enjoy the most is the quality of their company and companionship. They are well loved and highly cherished family members.
