Home of Holistic Golden Retrievers and Kelore Goldens

I have been in the animal training field for 20+ years. It all began with draft horses. We competed all over New England and Canada bringing home many first and second place prizes. I was invited to participate in the 1976 bicentennial celebration with a pair of our draft horses putting on a demo daily for a week in our nation's capital. This took place on the lawn in the park between the Lincoln and Washington Monuments. It was filmed by the Smithsonian Institution and is on display there.

After competing at the highest level in this field, I decided to try my hand at training standard bred racehorses. I acquired a stable of 5 horses and went to the winner's circle many times. I was offered a position in Pompano, FL to continue training for the stable during the winter months. At this time it was impossible to take the position due to my growing family; two little girls and a husband who would not leave the good old State of Maine.

The rest of the story speaks for itself. I went to the dogs. My first experience was on a hunting trip with a great old Golden, named Sam. She had never been formally trained but what a great hunting buddy! With her walking the roads of the Great North Woods she flushed my first ruffed grouse. I will always hold that memory close to my heart. I was hooked. Since then I have acquired several Golden Retrievers that I have trained for AKC Hunt Tests, titling 2 Senior and several Junior dogs.

My dogs here at Goldworks are family members. They are fed only the best of foods including their daily rations of kibble, veggies, meat, and nutritional supplements to balance their diets. All my dogs receive homeopathic veterinary care and vaccination schedules.

Currently, I'm a member of the Penobscot Hunting Retriever Club, the Pine Tree Golden Retriever Club, and a member of the Golden Retriever Club of America.
