All About Goldens

Contact Us


to the NEW "English Background Goldens in North America" (EGNA) website.

Our goal is to provide a variety of information on the English-style Golden Retriever, and Golden Retrievers in general. 

Additional educational material is available under All About Goldens. We encourage puppy buyers to contact several breeders and work with whomever they feel most comfortable.

The background photo is of the ruins of Guisachan House, the birthplace of the breed in the Scottish Highlands. The head studies* portray the exceptional warmth of expression, including proper eye size and shape, and the strength of muzzle, that epitomizes the classic head type.
