Welcome to Northwest Goldens!

Golden Retriever Breeder
Vancouver Washington and Portland Oregon

Welcome to Northwest Goldens, also known as Wood Duck Retrievers, a reputable breeder of golden retrievers in Washington and Oregon. Breeder Judy Slayton Bachofner has a hand in the growth and development of all her puppies and adult dogs, playing with them and caring for them every day.

Working with dogs is a true labor of love and each dog is an important part of Judy's life. Judy and her husband Mark live in rural Washington state near the Oregon border. Set on several scenic acres, their home gives the "canine crew" room to run, investigate and live life to the fullest.

We desire to place the right puppy with your family, based on your needs and the physical traits and temperament of the puppy. We also specialize in meeting specific needs, such as dogs for search and rescue, service, hunting and show.
