ThorneLea Goldens was established in 1976. My first home bred Champion was Ch ThorneLea's Guinevere CD, WC, VC. Guinevere was a very intelligent golden and willing to please. She obtained her CD in 6 weeks of training and actually watched her dam Ch Caernac's Adhuil Ornaic CD, WCX, VC "CHARMY" do doubles and triples for her WCX title. Guinevere obtained her CD with very limited training and got it on the first try.
I have bred many breed Champions. Many of these were finished owner breeder handled. Our lives changed a lot in the 1980's and I went to work full time so did not have the time to do field work. I did manage to put CD titles on some of my Champions. Other people have put Master Hunter and obedience titles on my goldens as well as agility and tracking titles.
I now live on aproximately 2 acres in a very wooded area in Pelham, New Hampshire. The yard is fenced in and the dogs have a huge area to run free. They are not in kennel runs and they are a part of the family.
I keep a limited number of dogs. Those are Can Ch Sunkozi ThorneLea Kaycee, ThorneLea's Belle of the Ball, ThorneLeas Brkfast at Tiffanys, and Sunnybrae ThorneLea Stargazer. I do like showing my own dogs in the breed ring and will do so as long as I can.
My puppies are sold with health certificates and first vaccinations. All parents have their clearances: hip/elbow, eye and heart. Many of my puppies go to wonderfull pet homes and I strive to breed healthy goldens with good temperments. I breed only 2 possibly 3 litters a year. Many of my puppies go to homes that have purchased a puppy from me years ago.
I will put up some pictures of the "kids" at their home latter!
