About Us:

In 1973 I bought a female golden retriever puppy for my husband as a birthday present.  We were living in Massachusetts at the time so I joined Yankee Golden Retriever Club, a member club of the Golden Retriever Club of America.

I trained and showed our smart golden to her CDX obedience title, and then in 1975 I bred and whelped our first litter. We decided that our kennel name would be BONANZA.

We then moved back to California where I joined the Golden Retriever Club of San Diego County in 1976.  Our family was active in 4-H dog training and showing and I was the Dog Leader for Poway 4-H for many years.  Currently I judge showmanship for the local 4-H dog shows.

My other passion is my horses. I have recently shown my Tennessee Walking Horses and my Rocky Mountain Horse to a Regional Championship in Country Pleasure. Currently I am the administrator of a volunteer Mounted Unit for the San Diego County Sheriff's Department. We ride our horses in parades and special events proudly representing the Department.
