Looking for a Top OB Breeder

A friend of mine is researching for her next puppy, her first Golden. She intends this pup for advanced obedience -- she is experienced in other breeds, but not Goldens. She is looking for breeders who specialize in OB Goldens and would prefer the bench "type" -- something I know nothing about. I have suggested TopBrass and Gaylans, but more suggestions are welcomed. Any other info that would be pertinent would be welcomed, such as lines to investigate. She is looking throughout North America. Thanks in advance.

I think Gaylans would be a great choice!

Sunfire Goldens

ETA: If your friend truly understands what is involved in a high drive, performance golden; they are not quite like say a GSD.

Sunrise, she is very knowledgeable about many breeds in detail -- but is still developing Golden "connections." Could you expound?

She is a good owner trainer, but knows much more about GSD, Doberman, Am. Cocker, Giant Schnauzer lines, etc. Her Cocker is quite fieldy and has tons of bird drive. She wants a Golden specifically for OB, and wants to work toward a UDX.

I am also looking specifically for OB champs and lineages for her. My friend wants a Golden specifically for a OB and a UDX or above. She is a good OB owner-trainer, understands sensitive, drivey dogs through her Am Cocker who is very bird driven, and has several OB mentors. She would however like a harder Golden. I had one of these, but he was more of a field type and BYB unfortunately.

She has owned Dobermans, GSDs, Am Cockers, Giant Schnauzers and worked extensively fostering and placing various breeds dogs and puppies, so she has a lot of breed knowledge. She is interested in OB lines. I am also interested in OB lines myself, although just a novice, but I prefer a fieldy type, that's what I am used to. She understand positive reinforcement negative punishment training, more traditional training for proofing, as well as training through drive (not Behan style).

If she is looking for the bench (show) type golden, I'm not sure some of the breeders suggested are going to be what she's looking for.
Take a look at Docmar goldens (Jane) DocMar Goldens - Golden Retrievers & Havanese -* Duluth MN , some of her recent breedings have been just phenomenal in terms of looks, brains, and trainability. Jane will be glad to work with your friend to pick the right puppy for high level obedience.

Well, I will say that the colour does not matter as much as the "block" head to her. She is not planning on conformation showing.
