Carova Golden  Retrievers

Phone: 757-202-9393



Carova Goldens are raised in our home and provided with mental stimulation and physically challenging activities that develop body and mind.


Getting off on the right foot in life is critical for adult hood.

Great beginnings with me, and continuing education with you, equals unlimited possibilities for the future.  


Carova Dogs As  Family Members  ( First Job)


Carova Dogs As Conformation Dogs

I am a very lucky breeder.  Every family I have placed a show dog with are new to the sport of showing dogs. I am thrilled to be able to introduce them to a sport that few really understand.  As you can see from above, Carova  dogs swim, roll in mud, do therapy work. In short, they live life to the fullest and are family pets above anything else.  Some owners enjoy sitting back and watching their babies while others enjoy a more hands on approach and show their own dogs.   Come join the fun and meet life long friends along the way !!
