Our History

Our History Our introduction to Golden Retrievers began 30 years ago with our first dog "Broomhill Boy" (Bruno) in a small village in Northern England called Acklington. Although never in the show ring Bruno was trailed successfully in the obedience ring. We were founding members of the Golden Retriever Club of Northumbria showing under the prefix "Whinbonny". Golden Melody of Whinbonny (Bindy) was our foundation bitch from which Whinbonny Golden Retrievers originated. Bindy and her daughter Whinbonny Apricot (Kirsty) produced many offspring who were shown extensively in the late 70's early 80's in the U.K. We emigrated to Western Australia in 1981 and currently have a small show and breeding kennels in the Darling Range on the outskirts of Perth, Western Australia. Our kennel consists of Aust. Ch Clairedoree Applewood (Holly), Applewoode Hummingbird (Rani), Ambermist Gale Force (Willow) and Chaleur Strike M Handsom (Remus). Applewoode Hocus Pocus and Applewoode Harmony were exported to Birthe & Flemming Juhl of Gainwill Kennels in DENMARK. Puppies sometimes available and enquiries are welcome. Remus is available at stud to approved bitches
