Picked up Daisy from KountryKozy golden retrievers mid December. Daisy is a very loving and happy puppy who loves to be cuddled and kissed all over her face. She is a very smart dog and has learnt a few obedience commands already. She will go in to obedience training this year and possibly an upcoming obedience trial. She is very well behaved except when she pushes toys under the couches so that our other dog can't get them. Lol. We love her to bits and she returns that love 10 fold.

KountryKozy golden retrievers is exceptionally well run and puppies are housed in very clean conditions. Dawn and Kerry take really good care of all the "babies" until they are ready to go to their forever homes. I recommend KountryKozy golden retrievers kennel.

We got our almost 2 year old English Cream Golden Retriever named Wally ( Karev ) from Rebel's and Aurora's 1st litter. We all love him to death and he has become a member of the family the second we got him! It was clear right away that Wally loves dogs so we got him a sister, named Ellie ( Tinsel ), from Beau's and Aurora's litter because we had such a great experience when getting Wally. The experience was just as great getting Ellie and having nothing but great things to say about KountryKozy! Dawn clearly goes above and beyond to take care of all her puppies to make sure that everyone is happy and healthy before going off to their forever homes. Her love for dogs and enthusiasm for breeding is clear from the get go. Dawn went out of her way to provide regular updates of the puppies every step of the way and would allow regular visitation whenever possible. Every dog deserves to come from a great breeder like KountryKozy. Thank you Dawn for such a great experience and for giving us the two most wonderful dogs anyone could ask for!

We were blessed with two wonderful little girls from Aurora's 2018 litter. It's hard to believe they are almost 6 months old now and have fit into our lives so wonderfully. Willow and Gracie have such beautiful dispositions and are honestly the calmest puppies I have ever met! Both are so smart and seem to learn everything so quickly. Dealing with Dawn and Kerry was such a pleasant experience right from the very first phone call. I absolutely loved the pictures of the puppies that were posted on a regular basis. It made the waiting game a little less painful! I would highly recommend KountryKozy in a heart beat which I already have to my vet. Thanks again Dawn and Kerry for the two newest members to our family!

Where to start! I know I'm biased but Stanley is literally the BEST dog ever. He is my partner in crime and perfect in every way. I could not ask for a more well behaved and attentive puppy. Stanley steals the show wherever we go, first with his looks and next with his charm. He has made so many friends already! He loves the water in any form, whether its out for a paddle-board with me in the mountains, his kiddie pool in our back yard, or even just the hose-- and has only tried to get in the hot tub once. He is just the sweetest and loves to snuggle-- I don't really care how big he gets, he will always be my big baby and my lap dog! I really can’t image my life without him.

Dawn and family exceeded all of my expectations throughout the whole process. She constantly kept me in the know, sent updates, info packs, pictures and answered EVERY one of my many many questions. On pickup day I was very happy to see what a nice home and family that my Stanley had come from. I have recommended them on numerous occasions thus far and will continue! Just gave your information to a lady at the river the other day! Thank you for helping bring such a wonderful gift into my life.

I am sooooooo happy with little Finnegan (Finn) who is now almost 6 months old. He is a wonderful addition to my little fur family. He is an absolutely wonderful adventure dog. I am so impressed with how settled and calm he is. He curls up and settles so quickly when we go canoeing or kayaking, it actually surprises me how well he does in the boats :)

His personality is just wonderful. He gets along with everybody and every animal. I am very happy to have him.

Dawn thank you so much for everything! I couldn't ask for a better addition to the famjam



We are so thrilled to have our puppy, Taco! He is our new best friend and adventure buddy. Dawn was great in answering all of our questions and regularly providing helpful information. We also enjoyed getting updates and photos on the puppies' growth before the take-home day! Taco is super smart and has the SWEETEST temperament. He loves exploring and playing and is always ready to give cuddles. Taco's training is going fabulously well and he is great when meeting others.

We would highly recommend KountryKozy Golden Retrievers to anyone wanting to add a new furry addition to their home!

Geoff and Sacha, hoomans to Taco


We love our new puppy. He has such a nice temperament and is a pleasure to have for companionship. Dawn was such a great help with any questions I had and kept us in the loop by posting pictures and neat little pieces of information avbout our puppy for their first weeks before he was big enough to bring home. I would definitely recommend KountryKozy.

We got Elsa roughly 6 weeks ago and she has fit in perfectly with our family. Elsa is a very loving, smart and playful puppuy. She is very willing to please and lets you know what she wants! You can tell she was very well socialized as she loves all people and other dogs. Even though we live roughly 3 hours away, we felt like we were part of the whole process beginning at the birth of the puppies. We are extremely happy with Elsa and we could't imagine our lives without her! We would highly recommend going to KountryKozy Golden Retrievers to get your next family member!

We are so happy with our little guy Samson! He's very smart (sometimes too smart for his own good), playful and loving. We can't imagine our lives without him. Everyone he meets loves him and says how sweet his face is. Our entire experience with you and the kids was amazing. You ensured we were included throughout the process, and let us visit them lots. We loved seeing all the pictures & updates we got from you. We really appreciate the time you took with us during visits and answered all the questions we had. You guys all did an awesome job socializing the puppies. Samson loves meeting all kinds of new dogs and people because of the socialization. He is in puppy school now and doing so well. We would definitely recommend you without hesitation (and have already) to anyone looking for a new puppy in their lives. Thanks for everything!

Where do I start as the whole process from first contact to taking home our new family members was absolutely wonderful. We began with an email to Dawn who quickly responded to our initial inquiry which quickly lead to a visit to meet Dawn, Rebel and Molly; this is when we met her two kids Kass and Kyler who you will get to know during the whole adoption process. We were able to visit the puppies when they were 4 days old which was a wonderful experience and we continued to visit every week afterward until we took home our new family members. We started with one puppy and moved to two and now that we have them home with us could not imagine life without them. Rosie and Charlie are just wonderful and goofy and crazy at the same time. Thank you so much to the Keating family who were very accommodating to us during extremely busy times for them. We looked forward to meeting them and the puppies when we visited. We highly recommend them if you are thinking about adopting a puppy or two.

Wow! Thank you so much!


Hi Dawn. Well our feedback is excellent. We really appreciated the care you took with the puppies and they were obviously well loved by your kids. I have recommended you to several of our friends and would not hesitate to recommend you to them all. Warmest regards,

Thank You so much to the Keatings who have given us our boy Bosco. He is everything you could ever hope for when it comes to having the perfect family dog. Loyal, smart, gentle, and willing. Bosco just wants to be a part of the family! His temperament is a true representation of this loving breed. Dawn and Kerry were wonderful to deal with and made this process as joyful and easy as possible. They always answered all our questions and consistently refreshed the website with new photos and progress updates on all the puppies. Most of all they were excellent in making sure the puppies were well adjusted to family life! Thank you so much again to the Keating...we don't know where we would be without our new "furry" son Bosco! Sincerely,

Hayley and Mark


Hi Dawn and Kerry. I don't believe we could sing enough praises for you and your family. Rowan has been nothing but fantastic since we arrived at home: he has instantly become a wonderful part of our family and we couldn't imagine being without him. The whole experience from our first e-mail from you right up to this second has been nothing but perfect. You went above and beyond every step of the way. All of our questions, concerns, and pestering was answered in a more than timely and thoughtful manner what always was genuine and caring. We know if we ever have ANY questions or concerns about Rowan's health or well being, we can always come to you and get an excellent answer. We loved the frequent website updates since we live so far away; we felt you always helped us keep in touch with what was going on with our new little family member. We would not hesitate to get another puppy from you, and would definitely recommend you to family and friends without a second thought.

Hi Dawn and Kerry. We are soooooo happy with Mackie. He is awesome and loving and fun and I am so happy that we got him from you guys. He is a very happy puppy and we hope that we can keep him just as happy. I would recommend getting a puppy from you guys to anyone and everyone who asks where we got him from cause everyone comments on how cute he is and what a good boy he is too.

We absolutely can not imagine our lives without our newest addition, Cooper. He is such a wonderful dog and everyone who meets him loves him along with us. Over the last 4 months, he has trained so easily and proven to be a very smart, cuddly, and fun-loving dog. His disposition and temperament have been admired by our friends and family, they can't believe what a well behaved puppy he is. the Keatings were an excellent family to work with for reserving our puppy. They are so welcoming when the pups are born and offer so much helpful information for the transition home. This has been such a wonderful experience and we love our boy Cooper so much! Rebel and Molly make beautiful, happy puppies!! And as breeders, the Keatings do an amazing job and I recommend them to anyone in search of a new four-legged member of the family!! Thanks so much!

We can't say enough about how happy and pleased we are with our Autumn. She is so smart. Right from when we brought her home, she was very laid back. A very happy puppy. The Keatings have the puppies so socialized and partially trained that it sure makes things easier. She is such a joy. She has become my constant shadow. She learns things so fast. I take her to work with me and everyone comments how quiet and calm she is. They can't believe that she is just 11 weeks old. We love her so much and she has completely filled the hole that was left when we lost our golden Rosey. Thank you again.

Thank you so much for our puppy, Sophie. We picked her up just 6 weeks ago and we couldn't be more pleased. She is smart, willing, affectionate and beautiful. She is excelling in puppy obedience and fits in perfectly with all the other dogs, cats, and horses on our farm. We were thrilled to find Sophie so well socialized when we picked her up - you and your children did an excellent job. We also really appreciated your thoughtful attention to details - the CD with pictures of Sophie during her first 8 weeks was fabulous and all of the puppy information was very valuable. We would definitely recommend you to our friends, family, and anyone else looking to purchase a puppy through a reputable kennel. Thanks again!

Thrilled with our new puppy


Hi Dawn, it has been a while since we picked up Bailey (Ethel) last July but we have to say she has been a blessing. She fit into the family in a heartbeat and warmed all of our hearts. She is an amazing dog, sweet and a lot of fun. Far too curious for her own good sometimes but nothing more than the usual puppy fun. This was the first time we ever went to a CKC breeder and it was worth every penny. It was fantastic to be part of the whole process, waiting for their birth and then growing up, getting ready for their new homes. Also meeting you and your family was a pleasure and one sure can see just how much you and your family care for your dogs, it is evident in just how wonderful and friendly the dogs are. We are so happy with Bailey we want to be on the list for a male with your 2013 litter. All the best.

John, Marilyn & Bearegard

Our new lady Bailey


We can't thank you enough for our wonderful girl Keeva! She's smart, sweet & a complete clown. We can't imagine our lives without her. Everyone that meets her comments on how friendly & playful she is. Our entire experience with you was excellent. You went above & beyond to make sure we were included throughout the process, from birth to when we got to bring our girl home. We loved the frequent updates, pictures & getting to spend time with your family as we got to know the puppies. We really appreciated your patience, guidance & the information you provided as we pestered you with questions & made our decisions. It's easy to see how loved your dogs are. Your children did a fantastic job socializing the puppies. Keeva is great with everyone, young & old. We're expecting our first 2-legged baby in the fall & are excited she will have such a wonderful & loving playmate! We recommend you without hesitation to anyone searching for their new furry family member. Wishing you all the best!
