About Wisteria Goldens

Billy & Debbie Franklin have been married for over 25 years! We are city girl meets country boy and living happily ever after! We live in the “boonies” in Arkansas, with our numerous English Golden Retrievers, Mr. Tom Cat, cattle, and horses. We have filled our home with “furry” children, since our human ones had the audacity to grow up into amazing young adults, move out, and begin taking responsibility for their own lives!

Answers To Common Nutritional Questions For Dogs


The research I've done is in regard to Golden Retrievers, as well as the quality of ingredients and where the dog food is manufactured (which does make a difference.)  Large breed dogs do have different needs and requirements vs small breed dogs.  Dogs that are used in sportsman activities, agility competitions etc…also have different nutritional requirements.

Dogs are also like humans and some have faster metabolisms than others and require higher amounts of food.  Dog food bags have “recommended” feeding amounts.  They are guidelines and your individual dog may need more or less food to maintain a healthy weight.

Part of the different varieties within the brands is marketing and the demands of the customers vs the nutritional needs of the dog.  Bottom line is Goldens […]

Finn English Cream Golden Retriever puppy update happy families Wisteria Goldens
From when we first picked him up in Dallas 3weeks ago, Finn has proven to be a wonderful addition to our family. He has tremendous personality and is a quick learner. Finn is a superstar in the crate at night ( thanks to all at Wisteria who started that process). He has done very well learning “sit” and “down”, knows the word “outside”, and is coming along nicely with leash walking. Finn loves to play outside (although he's a little too interested in mulch) and he's now starting to go to the back door to signal he needs to go potty. We look forward to his continued growing, learning, love, and friendship.

He is quickly adjusting to city life and has already become acquainted with many of the city dogs and their humans in the neighborhood and, in fact, has become a local puppy celebrity. After just a week, we literally have people stopping us on the street and in our building lobby to say “oh, this must be Finn, we've heard about him”. He is quite the little charmer. He's very eager to learn and is doing really well with “sit”, […]
