I love being a Breeder of Golden Retrievers and I get to train gun dogs also. I am passionate about Golden Retrievers; however you don't have to be a Golden to have a good time here at Shaffer Goldens.  I grew up in the Grand Junction, moved to the Denver/Ft. Collins area from High School. I now perform in shows, hunt test, agility, dog training programs and breed Golden Retrievers, from all over Colorado and other states. I train pointers and flushing breeds, at my Ranch in New Castle CO near Glenwood Springs.  I have ponds and plenty of acreage that the dogs love to play on or in.


We lived near Denver Colorado, grew up in Grand Junction.  It all started when my husband wanted a hunting dog.  Well as you can guess, we were blessed with a Golden "Goose".  Thanks to our very good friend Jamie Beckett at BR Goldens, she provided us with Goose.  I fell in love with the Golden Retriever Breed.  I enjoy showing and training several breeds, however the Golden Retriever hooked my soul and taught me the Golden Rules, like how to share the bed, eat hair with pleasure and everything is retrievable.


Thanks to my husband Rick, I have found the Golden Retriever and have become a trainer of the best hunting dogs around.  I am excited about my adventures to come, showing and breeding Golden Retrievers.


Thank you God for creating the dog!
