Our Story


Hi! I’m Kristin

I have been showing dogs since I can remember. My mom (and dog show partner) bought our 1st Labrador Retriever when I was 10 months old and it’s been a blur ever since! Growing up with Labradors gave me a love for retrievers. When I was 14 years old and showing in Junior Showmanship, I decided I wanted a retriever with a long pretty coat and flawless movement. A golden puppy girl named Bellini came into my life in 2004 and started my journey with goldens!


When I met my husband, Brian, he had never had a dog. Shortly after we began dating, he ended up with a Labrador and has been the best dog dad ever since!

I am a Physician Assistant and work in General Surgery at our local hospital when I'm not playing dog mom. Luckily, Brian works from home doing accounting and can hold down the fort while I am working! 

We are breeders who compete in AKC events, striving to breed a correct golden not only structurally, but most importantly in temperament. We want to produce healthy, intelligent, well-tempered and lovable goldens that are strong retrievers while having beautiful conformation.

We partner with my mom and stepdad, Ed & Kathy Gleason, to make up Trinity Labrador & Golden Retrievers.
