We could not be more happy with the experience we’ve had with Laurie Flayhart and Silkspun Goldens.  Laurie bred our “smooth as silk” Golden Retriever, affectionately known as “Butter”, over 5 years ago.  Butter is healthy, handsome and has such a sweet disposition.  We love how much attention he gets every time we take him out in public because of his good looks and friendly personality.  Butter lives to please and is a constant companion by our side.  He is a cuddler and can’t get enough of playing catch.  We love that Butter knows when to be playful and when to relax.  The temperament testing Laurie did with him after he was born was spot on and really helped us choose the puppy that was perfect for us.  Laurie has been such a great resource from the earliest stages of our dog search and still is today.  Whether providing knowledgeable information about grooming and training, she is always just a phone call away.  One of the main things that attracted us to Laurie was her reputation for responsible breeding and dedication to “doing it right.”  And that has absolutely been our experience with her.  We give Silkspun Goldens and Laurie Flayhart our highest recommendation.

 “My husband and I chose SilkSpun once we had talked with Laurie over the phone and made a visit to her home. We were so impressed with her attention to detail on raising the puppies in the crucial first weeks of their development. Laurie was helpful every step of the way- from sending recommendations, supply lists, updates of the puppies once they were born, and training tips. I continue to value her opinion, and thankfully she’s always an email away to share it. We are very pleased with our well behaved and handsome George!”

We have absolutely adored Poppy. She is the sweetest, smartest, and funniest dog. She is personality plus and loves socks! Everyday she finds a sock or 4:)
Laurie has been wonderful. We have never had a breeder truly care about her babies like Laurie has. I love the fact that she follows up with the owners and makes sure everything is going ok!
Poppy is smart and kind and a wonderful addition to our family. I have 2 daughters in middle school and  most everyone in their grades knows and loves Poppy. I have another English golden that is 4 and the only thing better than 1 golden is 2.
I cannot imagine our little family without Poppy.

 Laurie, I hope you had a great Christmas!  Happy New Year!  May 2014 find you with great joys and pet stories.  Here are two shots of Murphy on Christmas Day.  He loved his treats from Santa.  On the deck shot he is watching our children ride their big wheels.  We love seeing him as a puppy flying thru the air on your website.  Please feel free to use either one of these shots on you site as well.  It is hard to believe that he has been part of our family for 7 years now.

Laurie is one of the most kind and dedicated ladies I know, both with people and her dogs. She is the best breeder I know hands down (that is saying a lot because my old Shih Tzu is from a family member of mine who's a breeder)!! She invests so much time, training, love, and caring attention to her puppies and adult goldens alike. I've seen firsthand just how well trained and sweet all her older puppies and adult goldens are from all the obedience training and therapy work she does with them. My 13 yr old Shih Tzu is also a therapy dog and I understand just how important responsible training and a calm temperament is to making a truly special companion. Someday my husband and I hope to be able to make one of the Silkspun Golden puppies part of our family!!! -Erinn & Wes Young

Laurie has an uncanny ability with dogs, and she produces the best Goldens in the country. She stands behind all her puppies and cares about where each and every one is placed. She is the epitome of a responsible, reputable breeder.
