Welcome to Valerie’s Retriever Ranch

     We pride ourselves in raising all of our AKC registered Golden Retrievers here on our Southern California ranch in the mountains of San Diego County.  In this healthy and natural environment, our adult dogs and puppies run freely and thrive.  All of our dogs are healthy, sweet, loving, gentle, and well behaved.   All are fantastic family companion dogs.  Families often visit our ranch and feel very safe allowing their children to visit with our dogs, puppies, horses, and barn cats.  Our ranch is a very peaceful environment. 

     Several years ago as we began looking for a female to breed to our Harley, we spent endless hours and days researching our best options and making sure that the puppy we would bring home would be healthy, smart, and sweet.  That philosophy continues and we are so happy to share our puppies with families who are looking for a new family member. 

     We also are very proud that we have been able to maintain contact and receive updates about our pups over the years.  Facebook, Instagram, texting, emailing, and other forms of technology have been amazing tools to keep in touch and see how our pups are doing.  This has been even more important as some of our pups are in different States all over the United States.  Every puppy and dog on this site is either our dog or a puppy from our ranch.  

     Please see the guestbook as there are several testimonials from families who have had our pups over the years.

     Thank you so much for visiting.
