About us

Golden Retriever Puppy Breeders in Ohio

MyGoldenRetrieverPuppies.com began as a partnership between two families–the Rabers and the Kauffmans. I first met Robert in 2015, when I asked him if I could stop by and take some photos of his prize Golden Retriever sire, Pudgey. Immediately, I realized there was something outstanding about Robert and his family, who’ve been breeding Goldens for over 15 years. They were sincerely passionate about the breed, and about their dogs in particular.

As “Pudgey” strolled over to me to say “hello,” I listened as Robert related the personalities, pedigrees, and offspring of his beloved dogs. He seemed to have their pedigrees all memorized! Robert and I quickly became friends and partners, as I knew I would be proud to recommend his 3-4 litters per year of gorgeous, well-conformed, AKC, champion-bloodline pups to families across Ohio and the country who were looking for a Golden to complete their family.

Today, our scope has expanded. MyGoldenRetrieverPuppies.com is now a network of several breeders, each of which must be committed to:

  • Carefully-planned breedings
  • Striving to raise healthy, socialized puppies that represent the Golden Retriever breed well, and that are ready to transition smoothly to new homes
  • Backing each pup we place with our 1-year genetic health guarantee.
  • Working closely with licensed veterinarians to be sure our puppies are healthy, and that deworming and vaccination protocols are current.

Each customer receives a vet-signed copy of the health certificate, the deworming and vaccination records, as well as AKC registration paperwork. You will notice the puppies on the “our puppies” page are not all from the same breeder or the same location. Each of our breeders is a small family breeder, and most raise just 2 or 3 litters per year. Others, like Robert & Martha, raise 7-8. And just about all of them have young children who love to socialize, play, and “help” in raising the pups on a regular basis. This allows us to offer a wide selection of Golden Retriever puppies year round, without losing the down-to-earth authenticity of visiting a breeder’s home to pick out your puppy (versus a pet store or broker who doesn’t allow you to visit the breeder).

The internet has changed how folks shop for a puppy, especially in the last number of years. While many of our customers now pick their pup out through photos, we happily accommodate those who would like to select their pup the “old-fashioned way,” by visiting the premises, playing with the puppies, talking to the breeder in person, and making a selection. Just call the number listed with the puppy or puppies in which you are interested, and we’ll be happy to accommodate you!

While a large majority of our puppies are placed with Ohio families, we do have customers from nearly every state. My wife Jenny specializes in providing the pup with a great traveling experience, often beginning with a bath and cuddling the night before (she declares the pups tell her that her baths are the best!). Golden pups do well with airline travel, and the airport personnel at our local airport (CAK) go out of their way to make sure the pups get lots of attention and care before their flight.

Thanks for visiting our website, and taking the time to learn more about us and our families. Over the years, we have communicated and listened as families chose their puppies and addressed their concerns and questions. Through this attentiveness, we have continually improved and grown, with many happy customers coming back for more pups or referring us to their friends and family. If at any time you have any general questions or concerns, please call me at 330-204-5498 or send us a message below.

Blessings to you! - Galen & Jenny - Elin (9), Laila (8), Sterling (4), & Justus (4 mos–not pictured)

Why Choose Us?

We Value Family

We love family. We love our kids. We love our puppies. We believe that no family is complete without a Golden Retriever. It’s the right way to grow up.

We Guarantee Our Pups

We stand behind the puppies we sell. Please review our Guarantee Page.

Raised with Lots of Love

We ensure our puppies are raised with lots of love. We strive to give them healthy, routine interaction with our own children. This is an important part of every puppy’s development into a fine family pet.

Authenticity

With an appointment, we welcome you to come meet us, visit our premises, view the pedigrees, and see our lovely dogs. We have nothing to hide, unlike a lot of breeders that distribute through pet stores or do not allow you on their premises. Trust us. If a breeder won’t let you on the premises, there is usually a reason that is not in your best interest.

I have purchased 2 Goldens from them. They are both so beautiful and healthy. Would definitely recommend.

I highly recommend this company if you want to get yourself a perfect dog. Mushu has brought such joy into our lives and has blended perfectly with our other pets. He is four months old now, and is adored by all. However, the other consideration is who you are buying your puppy from. My goodness...I cannot say enough nice things about the Yoder family. We got to meet Adan and Dena, but also all of their children who helped raise our little guy. Their eldest son even gave me tips to make sure that Mushu knew when he was playing too hard. I wanted to invite them back to my house for a bar-b-que they were so nice.If you are planning on getting a puppy, get on their list for sure!read more

Everywhere we go people stop and comment how beautiful he is. He is a gentle and loving boy. :))read more

Ratchet is 11 months old and really handsome! He is mild mannered, gentle and is always happy. He is absolutely wonderful with our kids and extremely gentle with our 1 year old kitty. He loves walks, swimming and playing with the neighbor kids and dogs. Galen is fantastic, a reputable breeder and truly cares for the pups. Highly recommended. Our next pup will be from them as well!read more

So happy we bought Oscar through this site! Oscar is such a sweet and loving puppy! We actually had to wait until we moved out of our apartment that didn't allow dogs and they held Oscar for over a month after we bought him until we moved. They even made sure he had all his shots and everything and didn't charge us any extra. Go here for your golden puppy!read more

Cooper is one of the best dogs I ever had. The best characteristics of Cooper is he is a gentle and cuddly dog. Great with my 2, 5, and 7 year olds. We bought the dog for my sons 7th birthday. They were buds since day one. Oh and the color of his coat always gets commented on. When I need my next Golden it will be a quick phone call to Galen. The transaction and the delivery was the easiest I ever had. Galen is so knowledgeable and honest which built a lot of trust in him with us.read more
