We are a small show kennel with KC ASSURED BREEDER status based in Leicestershire. Our dogs are first and foremost much loved and valued members of the family living within our home.

Here at Applecote our love of the breed began over 25 years ago when we purchased our first golden retriever Penny in 1987. In 1993 Esmee arrived and encouraged by her breeder we decided to have a go at showing and so soon caught the 'showing bug' and, the rest as they say is history.

We have had success in the show ring at both Open and Championship level including owning 3 homebred dogs who have gone on to win their KC Stud Book Number. I have also been a breed judge for the past 12 years, judging the breed throughout the UK.

We only breed from our bitches occasionally usually when we would like a puppy ourselves. Our main priority when breeding is to retain the true 'golden' temperament so when choosing a suitable stud dog for our bitches this and health is at the top of our list.

Before breeding, all of our bitches undertake the relevant KC/BVA breed health screening programmes. We only breed from dogs with clear eye certificates and below average hip scores. We are also supporters of the DNA scheme.

Like our adult dogs our puppies are well socialised and outgoing Golden Retrievers reared in our family home. When the time comes for puppies to leave for their new life we vet all prospective owners very carefully as we only want loving and permanent homes from the start.
