A love affair with Golden Retrievers started in the 1970's when we got our first golden and started to show her in competition obedience. From there our interests in goldens has taken us into competition obedience and training, hunting and conformation. We strive to raise healthy, sound Golden Retrievers which exemplify the breed standard. Our main focus is currently in the conformation ring, although we also have a strong interest in hunting and obedience. We believe that our dogs not only look great, but can do what they were originally bred to do as a hunting companion or in any other venue they are asked to participate in.
The Happytails name was inspired by the first golden we bred in 2001. Her name was Dixie and she had a tail that just never stopped wagging and we constantly found ourselves calling her wiggle butt and happytails! In her loving memory we carry on the Happytails prefix still but have noticed that all of our Goldens have those exuberant Happytails!
We are located in Sewickley, Pennsylvania conveniently located just minutes outside of Pittsburgh. We are members of the Greater Pittsburgh Golden Retriever Club (GPGRC) and also the Golden Retriever Club of America (GRCA).
