TouchGold Kennels

Golden Retrievers and English Cocker Spaniels

Touch Gold is a small hobby kennel, located in Mico, TX, in the hill country just west of San Antonio.  We're Jennifer and John Smith, and have been involved in exhibiting and breeding golden retrievers since 1997.  "Shelly", Ch. Goldwing Touch Gold was our first real "show golden", becoming a champion in only 5 shows, and a top twenty golden in 2000. Our children, now grown--exhibited widely in Junior Showmanship. In 2007 we acquired our first English Cocker Spaniel.  Jennifer started in the Dog World with Skye Terriers at the age of 13, and became an AKC licensed Junior Showmanship Judge at age 18.  We've been pretty successful with our English cockers.  Now that we are retired from the military, we can devote ourselves to doing what is the motto for our kennel:  our dogs are "bred with thought, raised with love and shown with pride."

We have worked hard to breed the best Goldens and English cockers we possibly can--the first priority is that each dog we breed will be a much loved pet with a great temperament.

If you like Goldens and English Cocker Spaniels, we hope you enjoy your visit to our website.  We believe in breeding and showing healthy, happy dogs. We only breed dogs that have all the breed club recommended health clearances.  Our goldens and our cockers are beloved pets, but many of our dogs have gone on to achieve excellence in agility, obedience and as therapy dogs.  Both breeds have wonderful temperaments for these endeavors.
