Welcome to Creekside Retrievers!
Creekside Retrievers is a small family kennel dedicated to raising healthy, happy English Style Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers. Our love affair with dogs began in our childhoods, and there has been very little time in our lives when several special canines did not occupy our hearts and home.
We are located on 26 rolling organically-maintained acres in New Salem, North Carolina, (just 30 minutes east of Charlotte) where fresh air, sunshine and exercise are abundant.

In the past, we professionally trained Labs and Goldens and titled many in the AKC Hunt Test arena. In 2005, we transitioned from this training role to devote ourselves full-time to our breeding program.
Our dogs have been carefully chosen based on their wonderful temperament, intelligence, high level of trainability, sound physical structure, desire to retrieve and quality pedigree. In essence, we produce puppies that we ourselves would like to be part of our own family.
Our puppies are born and raised in a highly supervised and nurturing environment with exposure to many different stimuli (other animals, children, noises, and water) that ensure well-rounded and confident puppies.
They are very integrated into our daily lives and receive a lot of individualized care and attention. By seven weeks of age, the puppies have begun exposure to crate training and are spending periods of time separated from their littermates - adjusting to being individuals rather than part of the litter. We have found this to be very beneficial in easing the transition to their new homes.
Creekside Retriever puppies are eligible for limited registration with the American Kennel Club (AKC). Our puppies are placed as members of a family and/or hunting partners and are not to be used for breeding purposes.
Many of our puppies have been adopted by families in North Carolina, but we are pleased to have puppies in these other states as well - Texas, Louisiana, California, Washington, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Delaware, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New Jersey.
We have witnessed firsthand the great pleasure of sharing our lives with wonderful dogs, and our commitment at Creekside Retrievers is to raise and place well-rounded, genetically sound companions with other families as well – because we know that it isn’t just a puppy but that he/she truly will be your new best friend and a beloved addition to your home for years to come.
Thanks for stopping in, and we look forward to hearing from you.
