Located in Mill Bay,Vancouver Island in British Columbia, GoldnGun Retrievers is own and operated by Rick and Louise Roberts as a small and selective breeding program aiming to produce golden retrievers that excel not only as hunting companions and field and obedience trials competitors, but also as happy-go-lucky family companions, healthy and with a sound temperament.
Rick and Louise are founding members of hunting retriever clubs on Vancouver Island such as Pacific Rim Hunting Retriever Club, Salt Chuck Hunting Retriever Club and long standing members of Vancouver Island Retriever Club.
Active members that support and promote the sport by organizing, participating, judging and training in a variety of retriever events across Canada and the United States, the Roberts have extensive experience that is reflected on the quality of GoldnGun Retrievers.
The Robert's family hunts as often as possible ensuring their dogs are exposed to real hunting situations. Regardless of their involvement in the somewhat competitive world of field work and obedience, Rick and Louise ensure that the number one job of their 8 dogs is to be the furry members of the Roberts' family, well socialized with other people and their dogs and maybe the occasional lamb!
As breeders Rick and Louise believe in the importance of providing support to their pups new homes and although they produce strong working dogs, they welcome "not working" families ready to provide a good active life to one of their dogs.
Whenever you visit the Roberts' home you will be received by the welcome committee eager to get the message across:
"We are happy to see you!
GoldnGun Retrievers is proud and excited to announce our

Check out the upcoming pedigree here
Arriba is a fun loving, gentle soul with an incredible desire to please. She is an avid duck and pheasant hunter, who excels in competition. Arriba handled herself very well in her first field trial recently where she received a CM the first day and a 2nd placing on the Sunday, this after having obtained her National Master Hunting title in August.
Sparks pedigree is a combination of some incredible obedience dogs, awesome agility dogs, and highly accomplished field dogs. At 2 years old Sparks earned his CKC Master Hunter title. One week later he pranced into the Novice B ring to earn his first leg with a perfect 200 score. Sparks is a very handsome, well put together dog that is king, sweet and a real team player.
We are very excited about this combined pedigree, the workability of this litter is already notable by the dogs that preceded Arriba and Sparks in the pedigree. Also of note is the longevity in this pedigree, something we are very mindful of.

This girl have earned all her CKC obedience titles in a flash passing 3 out of 4 trials in single weekend events with a High in Class for each qualifying score in Novice and Utility. Ginger is the first Goldngun dog to earn an OTCH and we are very proud of her!
In the field Ginger earned her first CKC Master Hunter ribbon and two HRC Finished passes! Also Ginger finished her CARO Novice Rally Obedience title with a combined score of 195 and three additional passes at the Advanced Rally level in a single day (no title was awarded since all 3 passes were under a single judge).
