At Verdoro, we have been building our reputation as a trusted Golden breeder since we bred our first litter back in 1983.

A life member of the Canadian Kennel Club and longtime member of the Golden Retriever Club of Alberta and the Golden Retriever Club of America, over the years our breeding program has produced numerous Canadian Best in Show and Best in Specialty winners on both sides of the border.

We have also produced many High in Trial and Obedience Trial champions, as well as hunting, tracking, and agility titled dogs. Verdoro golden retriever's versatility and biddable nature are exemplified through our continued support of New Horizons Service Dogs of Orange City, Florida with donations of dogs and stud services for their program.

Foremost, however, our goldens are all beloved family companions. We are proud that many of our puppy people have returned for another Verdoro golden years later. 

In 2017, Verdoro combined their breeding program with Michael Faulkner of Woodspoint goldens to great success, culminating in a coveted American National Specialty BOB with our lovely bitch, Joannie.

With our thorough knowledge of the pedigrees behind our dogs, we continue to consistently produce sound, healthy, typey goldens with proper reach and drive.

As one specialty judge said of our dogs "Built right, so they move right" . As such, Verdoro goldens have been used for judges education programs in both Canada and the US.

​But by far the best compliment we get is when our puppy people are stopped on the street and asked if they have a "Verdoro Dog".
