The Backroad difference…Socialization is key for balanced companions.
Puppies are lovingly raised underfoot in my home. They are introduced to horses, cats, and children making for more bomb-proof family members.
Juicy and her puppies
Puppies are born in our whelping room, under my care. We set weekly developmental goals for our puppies to master, as well as providing daily free range walks around the farm.
Puppies learning how to safely navigate stairs
All the puppies are exposed to various normal household noises: vacuum cleaners, dishwashers, radio, fans and blowers; as they are raised in the house…not a barn…not a garage…not a basement.
Backroad golden retriever puppies learning social skills from other pack members
They are handled daily, nails are clipped weekly and they are bathed at least once before heading to your home. This early education follows the teachings of Pat Hastings author of the Puppy Puzzle and encourages a seamless transitionining from our home to yours.

Puppies are wellness checked by our veterinarian and come with a health passport. They are dewormed, vaccinated and microchipped before they leave. A TWO year health guarantee is standard as well as 6 weeks of free pet health insurance.

Our dogs are happy, loyal companions, for years of family fun. All my dogs are house dogs….they are not kenneled.They are much loved members of our family and go everywhere with us…on nature hikes, to the beach and on vacation. We love to see them play fetch, swim and play in the water.
