Intheblind Field Golden Retrievers
Intheblind Golden Retrievers has imported field bred golden retrievers from some of the most proven hunting and field trial lines in the USA. Certain dogs have been selected for specific attributes, including sound temperament, working ability, good health and longevity.
We will have puppies from imported semen from American field goldens in 2021. Please refer to our puppy enquiry page to register your interest.

The field Golden Retriever is certainly one of the most stylish and talented gundog breeds. These dogs are highly intelligent, with a genuine desire to please their owners. Field goldens often have higher energy levels than typical show goldens.
Field golden retrievers are pure golden retrievers, bred primarily for their hunting ability, rather than a particular color, coat length, etc. They are of course the same breed of dog as a show golden retriever, simply bred for a functional purpose. Field goldens are a product of this purpose. There are of course field goldens from many different bloodlines and countries. All golden retrievers originated in Scotland and hence the ancestry of all American field goldens traces here. Most of the American field goldens seem to have been exported from the UK in the 1950s and 1960s.
That being said, and speaking to experienced field handlers, field golden retrievers are a product of the trials in which they compete. The UK trials use live game. Certainly the American field trials are as challenging as any in the world, and produce a dog with a genuinely high working drive and intelligence. It is typically the American lines of working dogs utlised by Australian law enforcement and border patrol due to the high drive and resilience required to compete in American field trials. True breeders and handlers of competitive field dogs want a dog that can handle pressure, and follow commands when they can’t locate game,
Intheblind Kennels imported its first field golden retriever into Australia in 2010, with a daughter of AFC Emberain Rugby. Our girl was purchased in 2008 whilst I resided in the USA. Further genetic material has added to our dogs.
Intheblind Kennels is pleased to have litters in 2021 to continue and improve the quality of our dogs and the bloodlines of our kennels. Future litters are planned from an imported semen from the USA, and also from a Canadian import that resides in New Zealand. Semen from both dogs resides at our specialist reproductive vet.
