Baron will be bred in 2019 to a very special girl owned by Barb Loree of Rio Ranch Goldens in British Columbia. This breeding will combine brains, drive and personality. Please visit the following web page for more details: http://rio-ranch.com/futurepuppyplans/baroncarmen.html
Baron is a “once-in-a-life-time” boy who has taken me on an incredible seven year journey. From the start he has surpassed everyone’s expectations, becoming one of the most versatile Golden Retrievers in Canada. Baron combines the best of the best of established English and American lines. This boy is everything a Golden should be. He is lovely to look at, talented, a silly clown, loves everyone and is a joy to live with. He achieved his Junior Hunter easily at 9 months, WCX, CD and Senior Hunter before he was 2, CDX at 2 years old and Master Hunter shortly after his third birthday. He has since gone on to gain his Master Hunter title in the States, a Canadian Grand Master Hunter title and has received several Judge’s Awards of Merit and a Reserve Judge’s Award of Merit in Qualifying field trials in Canada.
2017 was particularly rewarding when we were one of only six teams that qualified in Canada’s week long National Master Hunt Test held in Balmoral, Manitoba. In September we were one of 12 teams out of an entry of 68 to qualify in the Golden Retriever Club of America’s Qualifying field trial held at their National Specialty in Maryland.
Baron completed his Grand Master Obedience Trial Championship in the spring of 2018.
In addition to his field and obedience talent, Baron is a beautifully structured boy. Bred and co-owned by Shelly Blom of Sterre Kennels, he is an owner-handled Canadian Show Champion.
Baron has brains, drive, trainability and loves to work. He is a joy as a companion with his wonderful sense of humour and on-off switch that is one of the hallmarks of the best retrievers. He has great water courage and is extremely biddable. He approaches life with confidence and joy. Every day is an adventure with this boy. When not working or playing with his “harem” at home, one of Baron’s greatest treats is swimming and diving. It’s a sight to behold as he dives underwater for seconds at a time to retrieve small logs from the bottom of our little river.
