Welcome to Magnolia Hill
Bred from only American lineages, we produce puppies from AKC registered Golden Retrievers. The Golden Retriever has proven to be an excellent family companion as well as therapy dogs. We choose to breed Golden Retrievers for their supreme characteristics. They are intelligent, friendly, and trainable. We breed based on bloodline, quality health, and temperament. together, they create a magnificent dog with shared characteristics. We breed for the love of Golden Retrievers.
we live on a 10 acre family horse farm, magnolia hill, in powhatan, virginia in the heart of RVA. our doggie mama is our family pet and was raised in our home with our two children. we have a large fenced-in back yard. Our mama also has the luxury to her own nursery in our backyard for play time with the pups and a place to raise her babies. The puppies are socialized in our home on a daily basis with us and our young children.
Our Golden Retriever puppies are AKC registered and come from health tested parents. from the day the puppies are born to the day they go to their new homes, the puppies are handled with love, care, and affection on a daily basis (I am a stay at home mom, so I am always home with the puppies!). Our puppies are raised on ENS (Early Neurological Stimulation) and many socialization /training found in Puppy Culture. They are fed Purina Pro Plan Puppy (at appropriate age) and are weighed weekly to make sure every one of them are growing beautifully. At 3 weeks, they start using a designated potty area in their nursery. They are then brought into our home for 2 weeks with their potty pad to get to know what home life is like with sound desensitization and distractions. The puppies will also get to go on at least two car rides. At 3 and 6 weeks they all get to take a trip to the vet for exams, vaccinations, and deworming. At 7 weeks of age, the Vohlard personality testing is performed on the puppies. After this, puppy picks begin. Puppies will then leave our home after 8 weeks of age.
Our puppy parents are health tested and cleared for all major health problems specific to Golden Retrievers through Paw Print Genetics and OFA clearances.
