Testimonials

Gus

"Good morning! I wanted to reach out and send some photos of Gus who is now a little over a year old. He has gotten into Dock Diving in the last few months and has earned his Dock Senior title. We also just found out he’s been invited to jump in the 2021 NADD AKC National Championship. He’s the happiest dog and we are so blessed to have him. Thank you for a great dog! - Shelby"

Dwayne

“Dwayne passed his Canine Good Citizen test last night. When I tell you that he did it with no effort, I'm not exaggerating. He did it all on his own! I think he would have passed the test when I received him in July. I think you and your staff should be very proud of the training you provide your puppies! Please thank everyone who worked with Dwayne. In two weeks, he will become a therapy dog with Easter Seals of Alabama. - Martin”

Bernie

"We recently picked up our most precious puppy, Bernie❤️ He completed the 8 week training session with Jen and her staff. We truly couldn’t be any happier or more in love with this puppy and the tremendous care he received!!! Jen was so helpful, knowledgeable, and professional throughout the whole adoption process. She communicated regularly with us, providing so many updates and videos along the way. We are so fortunate for her and her staff! Thank you Jen and Eagleridge Golden Retrievers!!"

Kevin

"My husband and I could not be happier with our entire experience with Eagleridge Goldens! Jen was always super responsive, knowledgeable and able to answer our (many) questions.Not to mention, having 24/7 access to the puppy cam for the first couple weeks was incredible and we also received many training update videos along the way. We have had Kevin for about a month and a half now (we got him in September 2022) and he is settling in perfectly. The training program was a great addition, he is able to follow commands and is very well tempered and so smart. From the adoption process to the training program, we would absolutely recommend this breeder to anyone looking for a great experience! This FL boy is definitely enjoying the Northeastern Autumn!"

Wren

"We just completed our second purchase of an “EagleRidge Golden Retriever.” They are beyond any ambiguity, the best Golden Retriever breeder in the state of Florida, by far, and ranks among the top Golden Retriever Breeders in the nation. The quality of the Retrievers that come from EagleRidge is exceptional and not often seen with run of the mill “home breeders!”
Jen Francis is the new owner/operator of EagleRidge for the past year now and it’s certainly evident in the extraordinary manner in which Jen conducts business “with love!” It’s palpable EagleRidge is under new ownership just in observing the many improvements that in many cases she’s done personally. From the new office environment, near spotless kennels and all the grounds inside the gates are “spic-n-span!” It’s effortless to see that Jen has put all of her endeavors into EagleRidge, and we ALL benefit from that!
All in all, our entire experience with the “new and quite improved” EagleRidge Golden Retrievers was prodigious and stress free! Furthermore, being a client since 2018, I could honestly compare the experience from four (4) years ago to this present time. And, my wife and I feel it’s as obvious as “night and day!” Jen Francis is a very committed leader, businesswoman and a person whose character is above reproach. It was as stress free working with Jen Francis as it could possibly be!
Also, it’s quite conspicuous Jen loves the Golden Retriever breed! Her knowledge about this variety of a K9 is remarkable.
If you are a “committed” Golden Retriever lover, my wife and I wouldn’t hesitate to send you to EagleRidge Golden Retrievers. The quality (health), temperament and of course breed beauty and more are on full display at EagleRidge!"

  • When can I pick up my puppy?

    8 week puppies are ready to go home at 8 weeks.

    If you choose to participate in our Training Program, pups will be ready to go home between 16 and 18 weeks.

  • How are puppy selections done?

    We perform temperament, focus, and distraction testing in order to place our pups in the best possible home. We have spent several hours with the pups from the time they are born and up until they go home. This means we know each puppy and have lot of observations about their behavior and personality. We select our trainee pups first, followed by our 8 week pups.

  • When can I meet my puppy?

    When the pups turn 2 weeks old, we will share the puppy cam via the Wyze App. You will have unlimited access to this until the pups turn 8 weeks. Around the 5 week point, the pups will move from the nursery to the puppy house. At this time, you may schedule an appointment to come and view the litter. At this age, the pups are not vaccinated and therefore we do not allow touching/handling of them. When the pups turn 8 weeks, selections are made and pictures will be emailed out. If you are picking up your pup at 8 weeks, we will schedule your date and time for pick up at that time. If your pup is staying for training, we will schedule an appointment for you to come and meet him/her. You are encouraged to visit during the training period so that you can start the bonding process and also practice the training routine with your pup.
