Hyline Golden Retrievers, nationally known and respected, was established in 1986. The kennel prefix "HYLINE" has permanent registration entitlement for historical significance. Hyline Kennels is dedicated to producing the highest line of Golden Retrievers; thus the prefix "Hyline" is a constant reminder of my purpose in breeding. My personal dogs compete mainly in conformation for American and Canadian Championships. Persons acquiring puppies from me, besides showing in conformation, enjoy much success in obedience, agility, canine companion, hunting, and therapy dogs as well as devoted pets.
All of my litters are produced by sires and dams that have their hips and elbows registered with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) and are free from genetic hip and elbow malformations. Their eyes are certified by an ophthalmologist once a year, and registered with CERF, indicating they are free of genetic eye diseases. Their hearts have been examined by a board licensed cardiologist and are certified to be free of congenital cardiac disease. All my breeding dogs are microchipped for proof of ownership and DNA tested for positive offspring identification. I only breed dogs who are in compliance with the AKC standard of the Golden Retriever, that have all clearances, and that are free from all ill-health conditions. They of course must also display the true Golden Retriever temperament.
