We here at Millstones Golden would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

We would like to start out by saying that we are small hobby breeder located in Northern Oakland County, Michigan. We live on 3.5 acres and are surrounded by 66 acres of vacant land.

We have been breeding Golden Retrievers since 2005 and just love what we do and what we have produced over the years. All of our goldens are well socialized and part of our family and household.

Our breeding program did not come to be what is today without the support of many people along the way and we would like to thank them for that: Glaciers Goldens and many others unmentioned. With out their support and allowing us to breed to their stud dogs or allowing us to have a puppy from their breeding kennel we would not have the dogs we have today.

A little about us now, my name is Dawn and I am one of the main care givers for our kennel, I worked as a Veterinary Technician for 18 years and seen the good, the bad, and the ugly from breeders. I wanted to produce a superior quality golden retriever that could multi-task in a pet home, a Conformation Ring, Hunt Trials or anything else we could come up with to do with our dogs. (Dock jumping did not go over well.)

Along the way our look has changed (we think for the better) we strive to produce a very nice heavy boned, large head, beautiful movement and superior structured animal. We also have some of our breeding dogs that produce a smaller dog for people who just don't want or can't handle the bigger goldens.

Over the years we have produced over 150 working service dogs and are very proud that our dogs are out there helping people with there daily lives.

Our dogs are shown every month somewhere, we usually have several dogs out at a time showing, we show in AKC (American Kennel Club), UKC (United Kennel Club), CKC (Canadian Kennel Club), and IABCA (International All Breed Canine Association) currently our dogs are just competing in Conformation but we have hopes for the future that we can expand upon that.

I have to take a minute and Thank everyone that is a huge part of our operation here at Millstones. Mr. Bill is a our maintenance man, transport person, sanitation person, and he makes sure our kennel is always clean and our dogs always make it to their destinations. Pooh Happens, is in charge of all the pooh that happens around our house which is a lot, they also make sure all the dogs get hugs and kisses many times a week and that we are always pooh free (no promises, watch where you walk!) To my family who puts up with my dogs and to Hailey Griffith who handles our dogs in Canada and my daughter Krysta who handles our dogs (and also made this website, does the training, paperwork, paperwork filing, photography, and anything else that is thrown at her..) in the US.

I would like to end this with saying Thank You (again) for taking the time to read this and I hope I have the opportunity to meet you all one day.
