I went to their website, but it doesn't function correctly, I tried a couple of browsers and didn't have much luck. The website builder should get it fixed.

They are definitely breeding for field work. Are you interested in having a field dog?

I had no problem accessing their website using Safari. They are definately breeding field dogs, if that is what you are looking for. Please make sure you ask about the core 4 clearances, OFA hips and elbows, heart by a cardiologist not a practitioner, and CERF eyes done annually. I checked briefly on OFA and their website, and while some dogs have all their clearances and up to date eyes, other dogs are missing clearances or have outdate CERF's. The CERF's may be up to date, and just have not been submitted yet, so please ask the breeder about the clearances. Hopefully someone more experienced can take a closer look at the posted clearances

My understanding is that goldens from field lines, have a higher drive and energy level, than those from show/conformation lines, but I could be mistaken. May I suggest, that you either change the title of this thread or start a new one asking for opinions on this breeder. Some of the members involved with the field dogs should be able to give you a better answer than I can.
