English Cream Golden Retriever Question Answered Here at Wisteria Goldens we are often asked “What is an English Cream Golden Retriever?”

So, what is an English Cream Golden Retriever?

An English Cream Golden Retriever is a Golden Retriever. They are not a different breed.  The lighter cream coat is dominant within the European bloodlines.  It is a Golden Retriever, but called the English Cream or English Golden to help distinguish the bloodlines and the color of their coat.

CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) and FCI (Federation Cynologique International) Registries have different standards for coat, weight, and build for the Golden Retriever than the AKC (American Kennel Club) however, they are all Golden Retrievers.

At Wisteria Goldens Ranch our Golden Retrievers are AKC registered.  Our  dogs and puppies coats range from pure cream to a touch of gold, all the way to having “gold dusting” throughout their coat. The ‘cream’ is an affectionate distinction for the lighter coat of a English Golden Retriever.

Our English Golden Retriever puppies come in a variety of sizes, build, and color – something for everyone! We have families that prefer a smaller built dog and others that want a heavier stockier one.  We have families that request the most outgoing active to the most mellow laid back.  We believe in finding that perfect puppy for you! We’ve learned a lot about raising puppies and have been recognized as a ‘reputable breeder’ by owners of our Wisteria Goldens.  Next we’ll look at the English Golden personality.

We enjoy raising Golden Retrievers, because they are friendly and affectionate. They are intelligent, and have a wonderful, friendly, loving personalities. The friendly and affectionate qualities lead to their desire to please you. Their intellect gives them remarkable capability for learning to be a pet companion or a service dog and everything in between.  In our experience the English Goldens also have softer, gentler personalities, and more mellow in activity level.  However, there are exceptions to this generality.
