Amazing Goldens began back in 2008 as a result of the Herbst family's passion for the Golden Retriever breed. As a family they have a great love for the breed and a drive to always improve and make the breed better. WIth one ultimate goal: Provide the best quality golden retriever possible: confirmation, health, intellect and socialization.
Brett having a degree in Animal Science, and Nicole having spent countless years researching Golden Retriever pedigrees and creating contacts with many show judges throughout the world, makes a great combination for an incredible breeding program.
As a family they feel very blessed to be able to live on a farm, and have their seven children be a part of the daily care of the animals. Countless hours are spent snuggling, playing and enjoying their dogs and puppies. With the combination of amazing champion lines, knowledge behind the science of the breeding program and the unconditional love of their dogs and puppies, Amazing Goldens is unlike any other in the country.

Thornton of Sun Flower Valley
JR. Champion Thornton of Sunflower Valley
Thornton is an amazing boy! He truly shines when it comes to representing the true breed standard of a golden retriever. He came to us from Europe and has won several dog shows, earning him his own champion title in show, best of breed, and youth class winner as well as winning his adult title. Many comments judges made were "great top line, good moving, perfect structure, harmonious back, excellent bite and great standing". He comes from great genetics as well. His mother is and international champion in Europe as well as his Father winning his own titles. Both lines are very solid healthy lines and have been health tested for several generations. We feel very fortunate to be able to have "Thornton" a part of our breeding program. His disposition is just as impressive. He loves to be part of the family, loves kids and has a wonderful personality for therapy and service work. He loves people and is very keen to their needs.
