We have been breeding and training retrievers since 1980. Our field-bred golden retrievers have been highly successful as companion animals, hunting dogs and as competitive dogs in hunt tests and field trials and are known for their health, longevity, performance, red color and their short, tight coat. We also breed Labrador retrievers. Our breeding program emphasizes field performance, health, longevity, good bone and conformation in Golden and Labrador retrievers. Pups are warranted against hip and elbow growth disorders and homozygous genetic defects such as centronuclear myopathy (CNM) and exercise-induced collapse (EIC) in Labrador retrievers and progressive retinal atrophy in golden retrievers. We breed only a few select litters each year.
RockErin is home to outstanding training facilities. We have three complexes totaling 700 acres. Each training complex offers a unique combination of land terrain and technical and non-technical water. We have been training and successfully campaigning Labrador, golden and Chesapeake retrievers for our clients in hunt tests and field trials for over 30 years. We have been successful with talented and less-talented dogs.
Each dog is trained according to their individual merits, strengths and weaknesses. Dogs are recognized as individuals. We mold our training program to facilitate the training success of each dog. We pride ourselves in teaching owners how to successfully handle their dogs in hunting situations and field competitions.
We are always happy to visit with new clients and candidly address their questions on retriever training or questions regarding selection of a pup.
