|The Dixie/Steeler litter continues the Coppertop tradition of striving for excellence, diversity, and soundness by maintaining a well-rounded pedigree including superior examples of both conformation and field Goldens. The pedigree for this litter is rich with potential, and we can hardly wait to see the results. Dixie is the product of many generations of Outstanding Dams and Sires, GRCA Hall of Fame dogs, and champions from 3 categories - obedience, bench, and field. Her mother is an OTCH/OBHF dog (among other things) with a long list of accomplishments to her credit, and her father is a 5th generation Qualified All Age dog who also sports an MH. Both Cricket and Trey are products of carefully combined Show and Field pedigrees and have passed on their good looks and considerable talents to their daughter. Dixie herself is a lovely and accomplished girl whose enthusiasm and joy make it a real treat to be her partner. At the time of this breeding she had 9 High in Trials and 5 perfect 200's, 3 from Novice and 2 already from Open, even though she had just earned her CDX 2 months previously..||Steeler has an impressive older pedigree which, like Dixie's, contains a solid line of outstanding field and conformation dogs, many titled in multiple areas of endeavor. We were drawn to him for his classic, athletic good looks, his sound health and correct temperament, as well as for his obvious talent as a working field dog. Our goal with this pedigree combination is to produce moderate, attractive dogs with plenty of drive, intelligence, trainability, and stamina; in short, good old-fashioned Golden Retrievers. We expect these puppies to have outstanding potential for obedience, agility, hunting, and tracking. This litter was not planned with the specific goal of producing breed ring or field trial prospects. Although either could be a possibility from the Dixie/Steeler combination, we feel each of these areas has such highly specific (and totally dissimilar) criteria that this is realistically not the best litter for you if your main interest lies in either of these areas. It is, however, very likely to be what youre looking for if what you want is a wonderful working dog who is a pleasure to look at and to live with.|
