OUR MISSION TOPBRASS is dedicated to breeding
the best GOLDENS that money can buy.
Our price reflects the quality of the breeding, the commitment we have to
the breed in terms of time and financial investment, our continual updates
of health clearances and improvement of our breeding stock, and the caring
and concern of our Topbrass network of helpers. We feel that that we have learned through our mistakes and capitalized
on that knowledge by breeding Goldens for over 45 years. We offer a Puppy
Support Program to all our buyers. This program is available throughout
your Goldens life.
For information on our pups, please email
us about your wants and needs. Tell us if your pup will be strictly a pet
or hunted or used for competition. If you are looking for a competitive
performance golden - that is our specialty. We produce goldens that want
to work. They are intelligent, willing, retrievers that will do a days hunt
and then be happy household pets.
We sometimes have ADULT goldens that we
put into loving homes with people that have them as family members and pets.
Most of these families include children and other household pets. We control
the breeding rights to these golden girls and market the pups.
"I CANT TELL YOU HOW MUCH I ENJOY GETTING THE UPDATES ON THE PUPS.
I FORWARD ALL OF THEM TO MY DAUGHTER, SO SHE CAN SHOW THEM TO THE GRANDCHILDREN.
I TELL PEOPLE AT WORK ABOUT THIS AND THEY CAN'T BELIEVE IT. THEY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THIS.
I TELL THEM THAT I AM DEALING WITH THE BEST GOLDEN RETRIEVER BREEDER IN THE COUNTRY. MY HUNTING BUDDIES WILL ATTEST TO THE DOGS THAT I HAVE GOTTEN
FROM YOU SINCE 1986. THIS WILL BE MY FOURTH DOG FROM TOPBRASS. THEY HAVE NEVER LET
ME DOWN IN THEIR ABILITY TO FIND AND RETRIEVE BIRDS AND DUCKS. I AM SO LOOKING FORWARD
TO MY NEW TOPBRASS PUP."
THANK YOU T. Barrett
"I am sure you receive many progress reports about your pups, I wanted you to know how well "Harley" is doing and how much he is enjoying life with my wife and I, and his two new best friends Riot and Scooter.
In addition to working on upland birds in the field he is also doing water retrieves. He has a terrific nose and exceptional drive. I am already shooting over him. In addition to his field work he is a wonderful companion and full of affection. He is so friendly to everyone he meets. We are very pleased with our little Golden!"
Topbrass pups are raised with the idea
of them being Useful Performance or Working Adult goldens. We raise each
litter as though each pup will be the next field Champion, Great Hunting
Companion, OTCH, Search and Rescue Hero, SERVICE DOG, DOCK DIVING DOG or MACH. And guess
what, they may very well be.
At 3 days of age we start the stimulation
exercises you can see Clara doing in the video below. We continue Daily Handling
exercises individually with each pup. With larger litters we also supplement
with daily bottle feeding.
It is very important to trim toenails weekly.
This makes it easier on mom and helps the pups get used to their feet being
touched. We try to raise pups that are wired to learn almost from birth.
