Golden Retrievers


Mastamariner Captain
Born 28.06.02

In early 2001 we mated our lovely Golden Retriever Isis (Mastamariner Gulviva) to a young dog named Glen (Alibren Maestro) we expected a quality litter both in terms of temperament, character and conformation but the resulting pups were quite outstanding and in mid 2002 we repeated the mating and kept a gorgeous young dog puppy whom we named Captain.

Captain's KCGCDS Bronze Certificate

Captain has exceeded the very high expectations that we had of him. The youngest puppy in his class, Captain passed out top of the class by a wide margin. At 5 months he had passed his Kennel Club Good Citizens Scheme Puppy Assessment and the Bronze Kennel Club Good Citizens Scheme test. By 9 months he had passed his Silver Kennel Club Good Citizens Dog Scheme test and a at just a year he strolled though his Kennel Club Good Citizens Dog Scheme, Gold award.

Captain's KCGCDS Silver Certificate

Captain was litter screened (eye tested) clear, with all his brothers and sisters, of any inherited or congenital eye anomalies at 6 weeks of age and also holds a clear adult eye certificate. He has an very low hip score of 3+3=6.

Captain's KCGCDS Gold Certificate

With brains, beauty, health and a biddable and loving nature Captain is an outstanding example of all that we value in the traditional Golden Retriever and everything that we breed to preserve and perpetuate.
