Meet Professional Dog Trainer and Breeder, Nancy Cronce. 

Nancy Cronce, CPDT-KA, is the founder of Carova Golden Retrievers. She prepared for six years for her first litter, so that when the time was right, she would have the skills needed to whelp a litter and get each pup on the right road for the future.

As a professional dog trainer, Nancy knows how important the breeder’s role is in helping puppies get through developmental stages and off on the right foot.
