Hello and welcome!

We are a small breeder that specializes in producing healthy, talented, and athletic Golden Retrievers that will adapt to whatever is asked of them. Past pups have been hunters, service dogs, therapy dogs, and loved family members. The goldens we use for breeding have been thoroughly health tested genetically and orthopedically with a variety of different methods. Hips, heart, elbows, and eyes are OFA and/or Pennhip certified and cleared along with completed Paw Print Genetics, Royal Canin Health Analysis, or Embark genetic profiles. Links to the health test results along with links to our dogs’ pedigrees can be accessed through their bios in the Our Studs, Our Girls, and the Retired pages.

We have two locations, one in Dallas, Texas and one in Casper, Wyoming. For the litters born in Wyoming, we are willing to meet at the Denver International Airport on a set pickup day, which makes flying with a pup as a carry on at your feet very easy. Our pups stay with us until they are eight weeks old inside a home with strict sanitization policies, and we have each of them examined by a veterinarian before they go to their new homes. Our pups receive the following before leaving us:

  • Multiple rounds of precautionary and appropriate deworming protocols
  • Their first vaccination
  • Early Neurological Stimulation
  • Tactile and noise desensitization
  • Area Training during weeks 2-8
  • Socialization with children and other people of various ages
  • Introduction to and playtime with other fully vaccinated adult animals
  • Full weaning onto hard kibble
  • Microchip insertion
  • AKC registration
  • A head start on potty and kennel training
  • Multiple baths
  • Lots of snuggles and love

We do not list a phone number publically on purpose, because answers to most questions are in our frequently asked questions section (FAQs) or elsewhere on our website. However, we do respond to every application via text message, so you will have the opportunity to call or text us eventually after the application process is completed. Everyone involved in Carmel Bliss has a busy life with dogs, family, and friends, so we attempt to condense our official office hours to Thursdays, but we are occasionally available on other days as well for scheduled appointments. Please allow 2 weeks for a response to any applications.
