Our first Golden Retriever joined the family in 1983. Whilst at obedience classes with Amber of Saint Margarets we were persuaded to try our hand at showing. Although Amber was successful in a modest way, we very soon realised that she was no showgirl. We decided to add another Golden to our family and in 1985, Barklands X-Planation of Messano joined us.


We bred our first litter in 1988, and Bracken is in the pedigree of all the dogs that we have bred. Our second litter, born in 1990, contained our Blue Babies, Messano Blueprint (Jamie) and Messano Blue Savannah (Briar). These two were responsible for our early success, with Jamie's win including a RCC.

Jamie also sired many beautiful puppies and was a 'Local Legend' for the superb temperament that was passed to his offspring.

In 1994 we visited a litter where one puppy kept catching our eye, we couldn't resist him and he went on to become Champion Ritzilyn Barrow Boy for Messano JW.

Boysie was a born showman and went on to make many of our dreams a reality, the highlight being in 1996 when he was awarded Dog World / Pedigree Chum Top Golden Retriever.

Boysie is also behind all the dogs here today and we owe him and Bracken, a debt of gratitude for providing us with such sound genes to breed from.

Our show team at the moment includes Show Champion Messano Urban Myth JW (Rumour) who has gained 3 CCs (all with Best of Breed), Group 2 at Bournemouth Championship Show, 1 Reserve CC, a Junior Warrant and Show Certificate of Merit and his little sister Messano Expialidocious JW (Poppins) who has also gained her Junior Warrant. Poppins daughter Messano Double or Quits JW (Duffy) is the newest member of the team.

Our dogs live indoors with us as part of our family, they are fed on a diet of raw meat and meaty bones which we believe helps keeps them fit and healthy.

All the dogs we breed from have hips, elbows and eyes tested for the usual diseases and are PRA_1 & PRA_2 clear, and we strive to breed healthy puppies that conform as closely as possible to the breed standard.

Please see our Puppies page for details of litter planned.
