Dogs from San Jose
In my continuous search retriever-esque questions about the “Choco-colored retrievers” this one the life saver… they do really exist. And another thought was pointed out regarding “white golden retrievers”; they’re the “falsely” white ones.

Whatever the case there maybe, it led me to my own theory for breeding GRs: to preserve their “intact-original-programmed-genes” for the betterment of their each unique temperament. Let me explain further, few times I have seen short fur curly GRs. I thought they are products of poor breeding plans. There are also others with long furs which for sometime I thought were the better genes for the GRs. After reading sites after sites on different coats (with different names) I should say never breed the field type GRs with the ring type GRs… since field type retrievers are bred for hunting and the other is no. The would be product of that breeding is certainly (theoretically) that of bad breeding plans. Another way to explain it is through their different color shades… a light golden should only be mated with another light golden and never with the dark ones. I just hope I’m making any sense here….

    My name is Jene and my companions own me. With a varied background; I have been involved with their breed not long enough, but I'm here to stay. That is because I consider myself an advocate for these breeds of dogs. I am an advocate for common sense dog training and not the latest fad that appears on different breeding plans. I will improve my breed the way I know and through the ways I have learned. I can't stand anyone with a known-it-all attitude who believes that they are the pinnacle of the breeds they own and look down their collective noses at the rest of the dog world. I may have to acknowledge the importance of pedigrees but the decision to breed a dog extends beyond their bloodlines. I am not one of those self-gratifying-band-wagons of  "I'm a responsible breeder”, however, I'm also always willing to share my experiences - in the hopes that I may be of any help to others & avoid some of the mistakes I made along the way.
