"Lorgair" is Scottish Gaelic for "a dog who follows scent."  Golden Retrievers being Gun Dogs, use their nose a lot and since Golden Retrievers originated in the Scotland Highlands, it seemed fit to use the Scottish Gaelic.  Lorgair Golden Retrievers is a selective kennel breeding closely to the English lines, Stanroph being my main foundation line.  The puppies tend to have that "Stanroph smile".  (notes on line-breeding) Photos of the Guisachan Gathering where the Golden Retriever was "invented" by Lord Tweedmouth.

Emphasis is on good temperament and sound, overall construction enabling the breed to perform the many activities that Goldens are capable of.  Another area of emphasis in the Lorgair breeding program has been in the area of nutrition as a way to reduce the risk of Hip Dysplasia.  More can be found on this subject under the Dog Food menu item

The original Golden Retrievers tended to be a wonderful rich golden colour which I personally love.  However, the best confirmation in a litter is not always the dark pup and the lighter pigment tends to be the dominate gene.  (breed-standard)   Lorgair Goldens range in colour from the pale to the dark.

There will usually be puppy litter(s) each year.  Some of "The Boys" on the Stud Dog page have frozen semen stored.  Breeders may enquire about frozen semen as long as their bitches have been hip/elbow scored and hold a current clear eye certificate. 

Most of the girls are retired and live with other people.  If you want to know more about us, just click on our photo.
