Field Golden Retrievers are the Porsche of the dog world. There is no substitute.

Our dogs are bespoke with Scottish bloodlines directly from the very best in the world. If you want a high performing, but low maintenance, loving dog with exclusive breeding just drop us a message.

Activ Golden's is a Brisbane based boutique Golden Retriever Stud, breeding a fully imported UK working strain of Golden Retriever. 

The working or field Golden Retriever is very close in physical appearance, intelligence and temperament to the original breed created by Lord Tweedmouth dating back to the early 1800’s in Scotland.

The field Golden retriever are generally smaller and have a shorter, much darker rich golden coat. The key breeding focus for the last 150 years since its creation is a highly intelligent, trainable, loyal dog making them incredible all round dogs. It also makes them an ideal family pet. 

All Activ Golden's are from 100 per cent UK imported lines in a pursuit to attain some of the best bloodlines in the world for our stud. 

All dogs are required to earn Australian national kennel council obedience titles  prior to being included in our breeding program. Activ Golden's use this as a measure of their intelligence and train-ability to be suitable to enhance the breed. 

All relevant health tests are conducted on our breeding dogs, including hip and elbow x-rays and eye and heart clearance certificates, which can be viewed on request.

More about Activ Goldens 

The Scottish Imports, Scotland being the birth place of the Golden Retriever breed we find it very fitting we have imported our bloodlines from the birth place of this amazing breed, the field golden retrievers are incredible dogs their intelligence surprise us on a daily basis. Our goal is to breed very close to its original breed only to hopefully improve it by using only the best available sires in the world, I personally believe the Golden Retrievers in the UK are superior which is why we have focused on bloodlines from there. 
Auchencloch Fairy Tale (Nessy) was chosen after much research with no less than six Field Champions in her first 5 generations. We could not have hoped for a better bitch, she is everything we hoped for and much more.
The stud has now retained a number of females from Nessy’s litters to be included in the breeding program by the No 1 sire in the UK, Echobrook Dexster.

Activgoldens Nelly, Sunny, Winx and Diva will be hitting the obedience trial ring very soon and with massive expectations on them due to the ability they have shown us. This is an extremely exciting time for the Stud as their potential is equal or above their wonderful mother.
In the last 12 months we purchased an exciting male “Drummer” from northern Scotland that will be arrived 2018, Drummer has magnificent bloodlines being by the very successful sire Riley (Joyful Hugo of Philchris)  
Activgoldens only use the working (field) line Golden Retriever bloodlines in our breeding program.
