Jen took over Eagleridge Golden Retrievers in June of 2020. She has been a Golden Retriever Lover since she was a child and finally got her first at the age of 12. Jen is originally from Utica, NY. She attended Utica University where she obtained her undergraduate degree in Biology. Some of her favorite classes were Parasitology, Genetics, and Anatomy. Jen furthered her career and received her Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy in 2013. Jen worked as a Physical Therapist and a Multisite Manager for 8 years.

Jen met her wife, Meghan, in 2011 (who also grew up with Goldens). Together they moved to Florida in 2014 and built their first home in 2015. In 2016, they started researching Golden Retriever Breeders in Florida and purchased their first Golden Retriever together (Kaiya) from previous Eagleridge owner, Dennis Williams. Jen and Meghan were married in 2017 on Siesta Key Beach. Jen became a cobreeder of Eagleridge in 2019 and in early 2020 Kaiya’s son, Kodi, was born. Shortly after, Meghan and Jen began their Fertility Journey. They now have two sons, Mason (2) and Elliot (7 months)- and they intend on having at least 2 more!

In her spare time, Jen enjoys spending time with her family and friends, woodworking, and doing home improvement projects.

Jen has a passion for Golden Retrievers and is dedicated to improving the breed. She has started incorporating DNA testing into our breeding program and, with her background in Genetics, is able to more accurately select our breeding pairs to ensure healthy puppies.

Tanner joined the Eagleridge Team in September 2021. He is the head trainer and the boarding manager. Tanner and his family purchased their first Golden, Gypsy, from Eagleridge in 2017. In 2020, his family grew by 4 feet with the addition of Loki - who is also an Eagleridge Golden. Tanner developed a passion for training and decided to make the move from Coral Springs to Lakeland to start working as a trainer for Eagleridge. Shortly after he started his training career, he got his very own Golden, Maverick, who is the son of his family pets, Gypsy and Loki.

Tanner enjoys meeting with all of the new puppy owners individually and showing off their pups training skills. He will teach you the correct commands, as well as, the do’s and dont’s of raising your perfect companion.


Maverick is Eagleridge's Official Greeter and will welcome you with Golden Smile as soon as you get out of your car! Maverick was born in September 2021 and belongs to Tanner, our trainer. He knows several tricks, such as; wave, bang! and speak. Maverick has high hopes of someday becoming a stud dog and is patiently waiting for his 2nd birthday when he can get his OFA clearances!
