Fort Knox Goldens

Does anyone on the forum have a golden from Fort Knoxgoldens in Ontario?
I have a friend that is looking into one of their pups and we were curious
if there were any owners out there.

Fort Knox

We just got our puppy from there and I happen to meet someone on the street the other day who also got their dog from Fort Knox. we really liked the place when we went to visit. They are smaller in that they only have 10-12 dogs (I went to one breeder with 45) but they really seem to love the dogs. I don't think it's their full-time business but they certainly take it very seriously. We got lots of paperwork and copies of clearances for both parents and a nice information package when we picked up Barley. He's turning out to be a great do with a really nice temperament and very smart!

Hope that helps.

We got Riley from Fort Knox in June. We have been very happy so far, both with our puppy, and the support that we have received from Kathleen. We would definitely recommend Fort Knox to anybody looking for a quality golden.

Same litter?

I don't think Kathleen has too many litters, maybe our guys are related? Barley's birthday is April 29th and his parents are Lady and Jackson.

Wow!

You got it...Riley and Barley are brothers! I never met Jackson, but we fell in love with Lady and wanted to take her home too. Is Barley growing nearly as fast as Riley? He was just shy of 31lbs at the vet on the 10th of this month. Everybody keeps telling us what a big boy he is going to be!

He's going to be huge!

Yep, that's all we hear from people, "He's going to be huge!". At 12 weeks he was 27lbs and at 14 weeks he was 32 lbs. Sounds like they are definitely brothers!
Barley seems to be very easy-going and not a totally crazy puppy except about twice a day when he goes crazy and runs around the backyard trying to bite everyone. We assume that will subside as he matures. In the meantime I have little red teeth marks all over my ankles.

Keep in touch about how Riley's doing and growing. We start puppy school next week but Barley seems to know the basics already. We've never had a Golden before but they are smart little devils (with really sharp little teeth).

Cheers.
Lynn

I know it's been a while since this thread started but we are getting our pup from Fort Knox in about 3 weeks! We're super excited and would love to hear about your experiences with a Fort Knox pup!

Jersey Girl, that's so neat! It's great to meet someone else who's getting a puppy from the same litter as our little girl. I don't know about you, but the countdown is certainly on in our house! We're likely picking up on the 8th due to our work schedule. Are you getting one of the girls or the one boy? Maybe sometime this summer we can get together for a little play date for the siblings!
