Preeminent breeders?

So I'm curious now. Who are the preeminent golden breeders in the US now?

Can you identify them for each type of area: field, show, obedience, agility, hunting, etc?

No reason other then my curiosity.

Gaylans is imho one of the top breeders in the country. Gaylan's Golden Retrievers: beautiful, working golden retrievers for home and sport

Not too long ago there was a thread discussing top obedience breeders. Looking for a Top OB Breeder. It's got lots of breeder names.

I don't see Gaylans mentioned that often on the GRF but I've had some knowledgeable people recommend them.

I don't know what people consider "preeminent" breeders, but I'd say Beth Johnson has to be at the top of anyone's list for conformation.

This is a good topic. I am looking forward to see what people say and what is said in the category breakdowns. I am most interested in conformation and obedience.

I'm definitely biased, but Harborview Goldens produces some fantastic dogs for obedience, conformation, therapy, etc.

Oh this will be a fun thread I would love to see people's opinions on not just success, but the folks who are doing it the right way, dotting their i's and crossing their t's with health clearances etc.

I'm pretty biased as well and would have to agree with DanaRuns about Beth Johnson. We feel pretty lucky to have found Maddie.

Gayle at Gaylans is a preeminent breeder more for her being at the forefront of tackling health issues and being a leader in the Golden community. Her dogs do alot of agility and field work.

On the winning/fame factor side-

Jackie Mertens at TopBrass Goldens is a preeminent breeder of field goldens. Sunfire is a preeminent breeder of obedience goldens.

Tonya Struble at Rush Hill is a preeminent breeder of conformation goldens.

Jane Simmons-Moake is a preeminent breeder of agility goldens

I agree about Beth Johnson/Summit, and Harborview

Julie Mackinnon at Nautilus is a preeminent breeder of show goldens

Rhonda Hovan at Faera is a preeminent breeder of conformation goldens

Back in the day, my childhood breeder Torch Flynn at Tigathoe was a preeminent breeder of the dual purpose golden. I believe Jeanne Von Barby(sp) at Elysian Goldens is closest to that now, though her current litter might be the first in a while??

Sylvia Donahey at BirnamWood is a preeminent breeder of conformation goldens
