Jungle Tramp/ Golden Heart Country Golden Retrievers are bred to have all of the sizes, weights, heights and other skeletal structures that are the standard of the breed. They also meet all the requirements of the AKC (American Kennel Club) and have required pure bred registration papers/documents. Our Sires weigh around 85lbs. The Dams are about 65 lbs. Parents and puppys are caring, sensitive and happy. Most also love the water, and retrieving. Everyone who has owned a Golden Retriever knows the breed wants to please their leader more than anything else in the world, but in their spare time, they thrive on attention, exercise, discipline, fun and affection!
Approximately three and on half miles outside of Pecan Gap Texas our Adult Goldens have over 45 acres and two ponds to enjoy that are great for swimming. Of course our Golden Retrievers live in every moment. They play, exercise and explore each day. We also enjoy supervised trips into the surrounding farming community, where there are many square miles of unfenced farm and Government Dove Hunting land. Specifically bred for retrieving Ducks from the cold water, Golden Retrievers are a Sporting Breed of Canine that will literally break the ice to swim and retrieve. The East Texas landscape is a like a playground for them, complete with our "friends" the Dove, Duck, Quail, frogs, Field Mice, even Deer and all kinds of "other friends" like Coyotes, Armadillo, Wild Boar, Raccoons and Opossum. With the beautiful rolling hills, many surrounding pools, various different landscapes, smells and wildlife it's truely a new experience each day. It is important to note, during the Summer months Golden Retrievers need to have access to plenty of fresh water and shade for keeping cool. (or inside an air conditioned home) Overall Texas is a great place to have this wonderful breed.
Our Female Golden Retrievers ideally breed only once a year, skipping at least one heat cycle for improved health. Whelping is generally preferred in the Spring, Fall and Winter seasons. Sires Doc and Midas are our Oldest Goldens, they are soon to be 11 years old, they're very healthy and active running at least a mile daily. Of course Inbreeding is very much discouraged and certainly not allowed. We breed our dogs from different Genetic Bloodlines using the Out Crossing method of Breeding which insures a healthier line of dogs with the least chance of Genetic health complications. Though Line Breeding may eventually become an option because of some of its advantages, we do not currently use that method.
Like most well cared for and adored animal companions the attention and love the Golden Retriever demands is remarkable. Any of our Golden Retrievers would love being in the home with us and can naturally adapt to that arena in a single moment. Golden Retrievers are a #1 family dog and they are comfortable inside and/or outside the home. Golden Retrievers are known for a undenyable way of living to please, a well trained Golden can adapt to almost any situation and achieve almost any duty with the ultimate care. Each with different qualities and unique talents the Breed in general is certainly very highly trainable.
Originally bred in Scotland as a Sporting Breed, primarily for Duck Hunting in ice cold water. Today Goldens' have excelled above and beyond any single purpose. Golden Retrievers' versatility in Field Trial, Agility, Obedience Training,Tracking and as Show Dogs is simply outstanding. This exceptional Canine is also used as a Working Breed, for Rescue, Seeing Eye Dogs, Police Service Canine, Cadaver Dogs, Therapy Dogs, and many more.
Unless the female is isolated due to puppies or her heat cycle, our Golden's walk and exercise together every day. Of course a minimum1-4 hours and a minimum 1-3 mile exercise and play time outside their home is absolutely required by our Golden family.. As best as we can tell as Pet Owners and from semi-bi-yearly Veterinarian trips while observing our Golden's, they are soundly healthy. Also a very sensitive caring breed, playful, adaptable, smart, really the ultimate loyal companion with the unyielding will of constantly wanting to please.
