AKC Golden Retrievers, AKC Standard Poodles and Goldendoodles
Formerly known as Kim's K9 Design, we are now named Dirt Road Studio by KJE. We have a small breeding program that has taken many years to develop. We have spent a lot of time researching bloodlines and finding just the right dogs for our program. Much priority and dedication has gone into temperament, conformation, health, trainabilty, etc.
We have been breeding Golden Retrievers for over 25 years, and the Goldendoodles for over 15 yrs now. I have loved dogs/animals all of my life and in 1992, we got our first Golden Retriever. I had been very particular in what I wanted to see in a dog, and waited to find exactly what I wanted before I adopted her. I have researched the bloodlines and learned a lot over the last 25 plus years. My goal has been to produce puppies that are not only beautiful, but have very good health, exceptional temperaments, and that are smart and very trainable. I have worked very hard to establish the bloodlines that we have, and am very proud of them.
Our breeding dogs are not just breeding dogs, but family pets as well. They live in our home with us, and are socialized with people of all ages. I have been quite active in training all of our dogs over the years, and have used several for Pet Assisted Therapy. It is a very rewarding experience. Several of the puppies that have been adopted by us, have also gone on to be Pet Assisted Therapy Dogs and Service Dogs.
We are family owned and operated right here in Dixon, IL. Since we have started our breeding program in 1992, we have met so many wonderful people and encourage them to keep in contact. We have really enjoyed all of the pictures and updates from the people that have adopted our puppies over the years.
