What is The Golden Life?

The Golden Life is a state of mind. It’s a way of life. It means having a best friend by your side at all times.

We provide healthy, loving Golden Retriever puppies and years of companionship. We do it in a way that’s relationally-focused, with quality and lifelong service as the top priorities.

AKC Registered

Born and raised

Raised in the Heartland of America, the Midwest, our puppies spend their first eight weeks of life experiencing all that the country has to offer—where there is room to roam, play, safely explore, and receive holistic and natural Environmental Stimulation Training. 

For homes nationwide

We personally deliver to you! We always ensure a safe, happy, and stress-free travel experience for our puppies. 

We cannot wait to speak to you in person and tell you more about how to bring a loving, little puppy into your home!


“I can’t thank Taycie and The Golden Life enough for bringing me Charlie. He is so playful and curious and excited to explore the West Coast! I think he’s an aspiring model too. My experience with TGL was flawless from start to finish. Taycie kept me informed and was so responsive to all of my questions. My favorite part of each week would be her update messages and pictures of all of the puppies. I feel like I’ve been with Charlie from the moment he was born to the moment he came home with me.”

We love our little girl, Milli! She gets compliments wherever we go. The Golden Life is very professional and kept us informed of her progress with pictures up to the day she was delivered to us.

We did a lot of research when we were thinking of getting a golden retriever and landed on The Golden Life. We couldn’t be happier with our experience with The Golden Life especially Taycie. Taycie kept us well informed throughout the whole process. When our puppy was born we were sent pictures and text messages with a link to a personal collage of our puppies photos. When the day came to receive our puppy Taycie hand delivered Charlie to us at the airport. It was such a cool experience and I would recommend The Golden Life to anyone looking for a perfect golden retriever. We could not be happier with Charlie! Do not hesitate to get your golden from The Golden Life!

Finley’s been so great!! She’s playful, sweet, fluffy, healthy and absolutely beautiful!! I appreciated how easy Taycie and the TGL team made the process. She was literally brought to my front door and I couldn’t have been happier with the communication they provided along the way! I will definitely recommend anyone who wants a golden puppy to use TGL!! Thank you TGL for my FURever friend!

Greetings from Cody in NY! Cody has been such a great companion for all of us during this pandemic. We are so grateful to have such a loving, friendly, and playful puppy like Cody. Taycie & the rest of TGL team have been amazing communicators and teachers during this new process for my family and I. Additionally, Cody had a clean bill of health when we took him to the vet. I would recommend The Golden Life to anyone! We are so grateful for finding this amazing breeder!
