Abelard is a small show kennel located an hour (or two,
during rush hour!) north of Seattle. We are dedicated to
breeding sound, healthy dogs that are beautiful and
intelligent companions. We obtained our first Golden
Retriever with hopes of showing over 20 years ago and
slowly became more and more involved in showing, training
and breeding. What started as simple admiration for a
beautiful, happy dog evolved into a passion for this
remarkable breed. Even after all these years, we continually
search for more and better information on the best ways to
raise, breed and care for our dogs.
We are members of the Golden Retriever Club of America and
the Evergreen Golden Retriever Club. We encourage you to
visit their web sites and to contact their representatives
for general breed information, breeders' lists and
membership requirements (their addresses are in our
"Favorite Links" section). Getting involved with one of the
clubs is an excellent way to meet other people who love
being with their dogs as much as you do.
Thank you for visiting. The site is always evolving, and you
are welcome to come back often to see our updates and news.
