Trademark of the Corbec Dog

The sport of purebred dogs is rapidly changing as it moves away from traditional practices. Breeding is an art as well as a science and this belief is the cornerstone of our breeding program. Only after years of experience working with Goldens would one be able to gain the knowledge necessary to put together two dogs who complement each other's attributes as well as reinforce each other's strengths and minimize each other's weaknesses through the generations of ancestors in their pedigrees. We persistently continue to breed using the breed standard of the Golden Retriever as the model for the conformation of this breed despite trends in the Breed Ring or the Field Trials. While we want to put Titles on our dogs as much as anyone we refuse to compromise our standards in order to achieve this goal.

The Corbec Dog is a result of a sound breeding program, which includes titled field dogs of outstanding performance bred to titled show dogs conforming to the Breed Standard. Many dogs sprinkled throughout the pedigree also have Obedience Titles. Only dogs from lines known for their health and freedom from hereditary defects are included in the pedigree and both parents of the litter must have at least 3 generations of clearances for hip dysplasia, eye problems and heart problems before being considered for breeding.

Special DeliveryWhen you acquire a Corbec Dog you get the following:

  • A healthy dog that has good looks and gentle temperament; that is intelligent, confident, athletic, adaptable to new situations, and has a good nose and functional coat.
  • Puppies, which are home raised and gently handled from birth. They are well socialized and exposed to children, noise and a variety of environments.
  • Puppies who are weighed and observed daily; have dew-claws removed; and are examined by a Veterinarian in order to screen out puppies with possible health problems. The puppies are wormed and receive the first series of immunizations from a Veterinarian.
  • Placement is based on the attributes the buyer identifies as important for the pet that will live in his home as a member of the family, (the dog's "Job Description"). The buyer will only pick from puppies that possess these attributes. All puppies are given the standardized Puppy Temperament Tests before the buyer makes his or her selection.
