Backgammon Goldens, established in 1981, is a small family owned, serious hobby kennel. We are located in lovely southeast Connecticut.

I purchased my first golden in 1974. Wanting to learn more about the breed led me to become active in many endeavors including conformation, obedience and agility for fun. Currently I am a member in good standing of the Golden Retriever Club of America, Southern Berkshire GRC, Yankee GRC, Connecticut River Valley GRC, St Hubert Kennel Club as well as Yankee GR Rescue and Delaware Valley GR Rescue.

Because of the importance of bringing up healthy and socially sound puppies we have only one or two litters a year. Each and every puppy is given individual and age appropriate experiences and attention in our home. Proper veterinary care is provided until they leave for their forever families.
We strive for quality, not quantity. Anyone who breeds for love knows there is no money to be made in breeding quality dogs. Thus we are NOT a business. All families of our dogs are strongly encouraged to keep in touch with us about any questions or concerns they may have, for the life of the dog. Anytime anyone is not able to keep the pup for whatever reason they are to return it to Backgammon Goldens.
I hope you enjoy the web site and learn more about our goldens.

If you have any questions, please contact me through my e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.
