Eclipse is a small home-based kennel, founded in 1994. We are located in the heart of central Illinois minutes from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana campus.
Our farm consists of 10 acres occupied by a variety of animals. We currently have a few Golden retrievers, a cat, 2 horses and a fish named Fred that call Eclipse home.
Here at Eclipse we strive to achieve the very best in health, temperament, and structure. Our goal is to produce well rounded puppies who are successful in whatever venue you choose.
We want our puppies to be happy productive working dogs, and above all be a valued family member and beloved pet.
All Eclipse puppies are socialized and raised in our home. The puppies receive all needed veterinary care and immunizations prior being placed with their new families. We also guarantee our puppies against genetic defects.
All of the dogs used in our breeding program have complete health clearances. These include, but are not limited to OFA clearances for Hip and Elbow Dysplasia, Sub-Valvular Aortic Stenosis (SAS) cleared by a board certified Cardiologist and Hereditary Cataracts cleared by an Opthamologist (CERF).
The puppies once placed, will go to their new homes with a wealth of information to assist you. I am always available to answer questions.
We breed to the standard set forth by the American Kennel Club and agreed upon by the Golden Retriever Club of America.
We adhere to the Golden Retriever Club of America breeder code of ethics.
Our dogs are currently active in conformation, obedience, rally, and are also working as therapy dogs in the community. I teach home companion, obedience and rally classes at our local dog training club, The Dog Training Club of Champaign Urbana (DTCCU).
We are members of the Golden Retriever Club of America, The Golden Retriever Club of Illinois, The Dog Training Club of Champaign-Urbana (DTCCU) .
