It is not our intent to make a big difference, just a difference,
It is not our intent to make all problems go away, just easier,
It is not our intent to fix all wrongs, just to make some right,
It is not our intent to be overzealous with our mission, just excited,
It is not our intent to reveal people’s prejudices, just each open-mindedness,
It is not our intent to know all the answers, just ask the right questions,
It is our intent to educate.

The primary focus of the program is to develop a cadre of appropriately cultivated canines and cross-match them with individuals who have defined and specific needs, most often children with autism or developmental disorders. A specialty line of golden retrievers are used who possess solid dispositions and exhibit inherent attributes of sensitivity, then are trained to encourage tasks to help the specific child. Each puppy is raised and fostered by approved puppy raisers, professionally trained to execute defined skill sets, taught to execute precise tasks, then placed with qualified and matched individuals.
Our puppies are imported from special breeders that specialize in English Cream Golden Retrievers. These puppies are bred for sound temperament and working dispositions. Our resource breeder can be found at christigoldens.com.
