Riverdance Golden Retrievers -   
Co Kerry - Ireland

Last updated on 19/01/2021 16:49 

We are fortunate to have owned Golden Retrievers for over thirty years - we are proud to have the 'Riverdance' affix in Ireland and in the United Kingdom. Riverdance Golden Retrievers live with us in beautiful County Kerry, Ireland.  Our Goldens, are all 'house dogs' and are bred for type and temperament as pets and show dogs.  All of our dogs are BVA hips and eye tested and have better than the breed average hip scores. 
We are delighted to welcome you to our site and hope you enjoy your visit.

Please note: We no longer breed puppies nor offer stud dog services

Looking for a Golden Retriever Puppy? 
We do not, nor do we plan to have any litters of puppies.

There is an unprecedented demand for golden retriever puppies at this time possibly
due to Covid-19 and there are few litters being born.
As a result prospective buyers are going to 'puppy farmers' who are offering
non-health checked pups, reportedly, at prices over €1000!
Please stay clear and contact reputable breeders through the breed clubs.  You may be wise to wait to locate your puppy.
