Homestead Golden Retrievers brings the very finest genetics in the world to your back yard. I hand pick my dogs out of the very best bloodlines Europe has to offer. I have spent years building relationships with top breeders and trainers all over the world. All of my breeding dogs come from world champion lines - generations upon generations of health tested, temperment tested, proven, family pets and companions. Additionally my dogs all undergo extensive health testing. You will not find higher quality dogs and pups anywhere else.
The Homestead Story
Homestead Golden Retrievers is owned and operated by April Jolley, a single mom to 6 of the best kids anywhere in the world.
My family came up the Oregon Trail to settle in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley of Montana in the 1800s and built the family homestead. Ever since we have raised cattle, horses, various other livestock, and farmed. Because of this, I grew up working with animals, understanding the care of animals, and loving them. I currently have a small ranch complete with cattle, horses, chickens, 4-H projects, cats, and the resident deer. My family still lives on and proudly operates the family homestead many generations later.
Every puppy is raised right along with my 6 kids, and our menagerie of animals. You can be sure your new puppy will be accustomed to a lot of different sights and sounds!
We are located in beautiful Big Sky Country, in Hamilton, Montana. Dogs and pups are shipped worldwide, and I have shipped to every state in the U.S.
Here in Hamilton, our dogs have the wide open space to grow and thrive. Homestead dogs have everything they need here to be the best family dogs possible!
Our dogs have very large 10x50' outdoor runs where they can stretch their legs, that connect to heated and cooled 5x5' indoor runs. My 2,400 sq ft kennel barn is state of the art, with infloor heat, epoxy floors for easy cleaning, K9 ballistic raised dog beds, Kennel Pro galvanized kennels, and swivel dog food bowls. I also have a wash station, laundry area, office, and blow out station in the barn. The pups have equally large outdoor runs full of rope toys, balls, tugs, kongs, and toys to keep them occupied, their indoor runs are 5x10', also heated and cooled. All dogs and pups are hand fed daily, and get individual love. They live like kings!
