 Our Story


    "Primarily a hunting dog" is a phrase that bears a lot of weight with us here at TalkAbout Retrievers. Unfortunately, there is a very large divide between field/performance bred golden retrievers, and those bred for show. There has been type lost, and drive sacrificed for structure. Something I am passionate about with the breed, our "mission" if you will, is bridging that gap. There are several breeders out there doing this, and doing it well, and we have taken up the torch and joined their fight. While there are many ways to prove a golden retriever's workability, I believe that the field is an area that should not be neglected. Originally bred as gun dogs, it's almost a crime to see a golden retriever lose its ability to retrieve. I have a passion for hunt tests myself: spending the day outdoors with your dog, doing what they were bred for, is a rush. The duck calls, hiding in the trees to throw a mark, seeing the dog's ears perk up and tremble with anticipation, is all incredibly rewarding. Our goal is to improve upon the structure of our field lines, while maintaining that hard-hitting drive.

Leading Golden Retriever Breeders in Texas

We have been breeders of Golden Retriever puppies since 2015 and are developing our program with the goal to be one of the top Golden Retriever breeders in Texas. We want you to take home a dog that can spend the day with you in a blind, and then be recognized as a golden retriever on your way home. Whether you're up at the crack of dawn with your duck call, or running an agility course, or doing therapy work, we want you to be involved with your golden. If titles aren't your thing, and you prefer to spend your days hunting leisurely, or giving back to your local nursing home, or just taking weekend hikes, we will cheer you on the entire way. We are in the habit of making relationships. We want our puppy families to feel like they can ask us anything or share any accomplishment, no matter how small. We were beginners too, and still have a long way to go, and a lot left to learn.
