We have started to work on the development of a Miniature Retriever ! 
Our goal is to produce a replica of the full size Golden Retriever,
but in a smaller to much smaller package!
This page last updated on January 9, 2024.
If you are like our family, you LOVE LOVE LOVE Golden Retrievers.  But if you are also like us, you don't necessarily care for their LARGE size!
After much careful planning our very first litter of puppies was born in 1989.  Which means we have over 34 years of experience with dog breeding and dog breed development.  Over the course of those 30+ years we have worked with a few different breeds.  In 2005 we started working with the Golden Retriever / Mini Poodle hybrid creation for Goldendoodles.  In 2011 we expanded on those Golden/Poodle genetics to develop our own line of Miniature Golden Retrievers.      
As of 2024 most all of the Mini Retriever puppies that we offer for sale have a MINIMUM of 66% Golden Retriever in their background and the highest is 85%.  Most are usually around 73%.  Most all of the pups that we offer for sale are the result of a Mini Retriever being bred to a Mini Retriever (sometimes we breed a Mini Retriever male to a smaller purebred Golden Retriever female) .   (In 2024 there is an exception with the puppies sired by Monte - his pups will be around 30 - 40% Golden Retriever.)   Our pups are a part of an advancing "breed" creation.  As a Professional Canine Breed Developer, our goal is about the continual advancement and betterment of this breed.  Each litter is planned to combine certain specific qualities of two different parent dogs and lineages so that WE can choose a puppy from resulting litters that presents with the qualities that were strived for.  The pups we choose for ourselves will become a future parent dog to continue the advancement of our very unique and rare breed of dog.  This is history in the making.  (P.S.  ALL dog breeds were created by "humankind".  Look into the background of any breed and you will find the original people that were crossing "this with that" to get "a new breed" that had certain characteristics that were desirable to them and their situations.  So everyone can thank the dog breeders that went before us for creating all of the wonderful dog breed choices that we have today. )    
In general, our Mini Retrievers are fabulous dogs, smart, sweet natured, loving that have proven to be great with children and other pets.  We personally raise our dogs up with cats and they all get along fabulously.
To see what our customers have to say, you can visit the "Regal Kennel" page on Facebook. 
On average, for 2024, our Mini Retrievers range in the 30 - 40 pound range.  But on occasion we can get a very small toy sized that are 18 pounds and at times a very large size as well.  On the high end we can get 60+ pounds.  (Still that is 25 lbs. smaller than an  85 pound Golden Retriever !)   Our goal is to consistently be in the 32 - 36 pound range.    
The photos below are some dogs way in the background and most were our foundation dogs.  THESE ARE NOT NECESSARILY CURRENT DOGS NOR ARE THEY DOGS FOR SALE.  To see what our customer's dog's look like please visit our facebook page "Regal Kennel".   To see our current adult dogs visit our channel under "doodlelady".  

Size comparison: a full size Golden standing next to a full grown Miniature Retriever

I can pick Sophie up if I need to and carry her in my arms a short distance.  I can hardly pick up Maggie's front!!  Maggie can "counter surf" and help herself to things, where as Sophie cannot.  These little ones are just such a great size to deal with !  But still a good medium sized dog so as not to seem "too delicate".  A nice all around family dog.


Here is a video showing a full size Retriever along side a miniature Retriever:

Reno - 35 pounds - silky hair

Goldie - 35 pound female - sooo sweet and gorgeous. Her back is below knee height.

Yes, I know I look just like a full sized retriever ! But I will only get to be 40 pounds !

This is Max. See him in this video:
