CKC Registered Golden Retriever Breeder
Gentrice means "Gentility of Birth"; equivalent to "Gentil"; "Gentle".
The Golden Retriever is the very definition of Gentil: "having a mild or kindly nature or character".
Gentrice was a name chosen by my Gramps, Alec Arthur for the family farm name. I chose Gentrice as my kennel name in honour of him and for the goldens.
My love affair with golden retrievers began in 2004 with a handsome gent called Clifford. He quickly stole my heart with his loving, intelligent (and yes) gentle nature. He was a loyal companion to my family and I. He will forever be be in our hearts. ❤️
We are members in good standing with the Canadian Kennel Club as well as the Golden Retriever Club of Canada.
The potential our girls are showing is very exciting. We train every day primarily working on retrieval and agility.
When choosing to breed, all Gentrice Goldens must pass their health clearances (hips elbows, heart and eyes) and display the proper golden temperament.
*We are passionate about keeping the Golden Retriever breed true to its heritage and strive, thru selective breeding, to give each golden a chance to thrive in its field of excellence.

*It is our aim to produce charismatic, intelligent, gentle companions, who are sound in mind and body and has potential to be confident in the field, as a therapy dog, family companion and everything in between.

This photo was taken this past October 2022 on our acreage. We, and I mean my photographer, timed the day of the photoshoot perfectly! The weather was fantastic, the fall colours were perfect and the sunset was phenomenal ♥️

The best decision we made was when we moved onto the acreage in 2012. I was raised on a farm (Gentrice Farms) where I learned a lot about how hard work pays off, the values of family (and a family-run operation), the cycle of life and the importance of working together. I wanted this for my girls!
With the acreage purchase that dream became a reality.
My passion for our K9 friends started with the family farm dog "Murphy" and when we brought "Clifford" (our first golden retriever) home, it became clear that this was the breed for us! Gentrice Goldens, Golden Retrievers was a very easy "next step" for us to make! Explore these pages, find out why we love the golden retriever. We invite you to share our passion!
