Our Family Story
Welcome to Glory Dawn Goldens and the Chupp family! We are a family of seven, Jeremy, Celesta and 5 beautiful children. We live in a quiet country setting of 120 acre property in rural Ohio. Surrounded by hardwood forest, the small clearing at the far end of the property offers us a serene secluded setting giving our children and the dogs plenty of room to roam and play.
Our family started raising a few litters of Border
Collies 20 years ago but with Jeremy’s devoted
heart for Goldens we as a family are now
exclusively raising retrievers. The temperament
and demeanor of these dogs stole our hearts
long ago. In our opinion there is no dog that has
a more kind gentle personality than Goldens.

Jeremy has always had the mentality of doing
things right or not at all. So committing all of
our hearts into the research we are devoted to
only raising healthy dogs.
For that reason our dogs are only fed top quality dog feed and 5 supplements and immune boosters. See our feed and nutrition page for more information on the brands and products we trust.
Our breeding dogs also have to meet a high standard of genetic qualities before we even consider breeding them. Our Goldens are bred only if they have OFA health testing qualifications. All of our dogs are genetically clear of Muscular Dystrophy, all eye diseases and free of ICH the skin disorder that is well known to Goldens. So far we have a reputation of a cancer free kennel as well.
We breed the Dark Field Golden, the American Show Golden, and the European Cream Golden. Our puppies are all well socialized spending time daily with our family. Puppies all go to their forever homes with vaccines and wormer up to date. East Holmes Vet Clinic approves and certifies all puppies with a clean bill of health before you take them home.
It is rare to find Goldens with a complete clear sheet on all genetic disorders. Statistics say less than 20%. We have been blessed and all three of our males hold the rare rating of being completely clear! Our females are also clear of all genetic disorders, except the Ich gene. Several of our females are carriers. The Ich clear gene is so rare that statistics show that it is not a good idea to breed dogs together of the same breed that are genetically clear of Ich. The chance of them coming from the same gene pool is possible. Resulting in puppies with weak genes and or bottle necks. The carrier gene bred to a clear gene never results in effected offspring. The result will always be clear or carrier. Therefore we have absolutely no effected dogs or puppies. Please contact us with any questions or to schedule a visit. We’d love to have you stop in to see us at Glory Dawn Goldens!
Wishing God’s blessing upon you and yours.
