About Us

Bonita Springs is a small family golden retriever kennel. Our dogs are primarely family pets who make the everydays special and fill it with lots of love and happiness. We regularly go working with them and enjoy dogs shows as well. They are the center of our life, we organize our activities around them whatever it is (travelling, holiday, celebrations or just everydays). Our kennel is named after Bonita, our first golden retriever, she is the founder dog of the kennel. We felt in love with the breed when Bonita became the member of the family. Since then a new and wonderful chapter has begun in our life. A life-long engagement and love of the breed has started with her. We are very greateful to her breeder Katica Szilágyi that she can be our dog.

Quality and careful selection is the base of our philosophy. Excellent health, behaviour, temperament and character are just as much important as the general appearance, these can not be matter of compromise. Offspring attandance is also elementary part of our breeding program.

We sell puppies only for responsible and reliable owners after personal meeting and discussions, who are looking for a loving four-legged family member, for a lifetime. We help and support the owners in all possible ways. Serious inquiries are welcome both by e-mail or telephone. Personal visit is possible, in this case a telephone call or e-mail in advance is necessary.

Our Values

Responsible Breeding

Responsible Breeding

According to our philoshopy, in hope of „better, more beautiful, healthier” offsprings, each combination have to serve the breed. Good temperament and character are two of the most important aspects of selection, primaly defined by genetics, the enviromental influence only comes second. Inheritable diseases, unwanted properties, insecurity based on temparament or emotion are all exclusionary reasons in breeding.

Offspring Attendance

Offspring Attendance

We try our best to follow our puppies whole life, keep in touch with their owners, giving them all the help and support we can. We take financial and moral responsibility for all the puppies bred by us. Offspring attendance is not only part of responsible breeding, but it shows the results of the combination, which also reflects and helps the work of the breeder.

Health

English - Frontside health

Health

Health is the most important factor, in every aspect. High-quality and responsible breeding is based on the fact that only healthy dogs are kept in breeding. There are a number of clinical veterinary screening schemes that dog breeders can use to increase the probability of producing healthy puppies. We must use the following schemes for sires and dams: screening for hips/elbows/shoulders, and eye testing. Besides, only dogs with healty and stable nervous system and desirable temperament can be bred! Considering the age of our dog we always must pay attention to the right feeding, movement, activity, joint protection, just like support them vith vitamins and nutritional supplements.

Temperament

English - Frontside temperament

Temperament

Golden retrievers have a fantastic temperament: confident, friendly, kindly, intelligent, possessing natural working ability.  They are not shy or agressive, these traits are definitely not typical of this breed! Through the selective breeding, dogs have many inherited intellectual, neurological, behavioral traits. Responsive/non-responsive, active/inactive, shy and aggressive — these are all inherited temperaments that have been mapped out by dog’s DNA. Socialization, training and other environmental influences can work to tweak or adjust the temperament, but they can not eliminate it or completely transform it. Golden retrievers are popular, and this has led to indiscriminate breeding practices which means puppies with unstable temperaments. All the exercise and socialization in the world can not undo a bad bloodline.

Retriever abilities

Retriever abilities

Golden retrivers were originally bred to search and apport wild animals, that’s the main job of the breed: their obidence, inteligence, great controllability, sense of smell, light bite, great working abilities makes them excellent gundogs. Water and apporting is vital for them! Keeping the retriever abilities are a key part of breeding.

Members Of Our Kennel

Bonita

Bonita

She is our first Golden Retriever, the name founder dog of our Kennel. A dream girl for us. We are very grateful to Bonita’s breeder, Katalin Szilágyi (Magic Madness Kennel) for her trust and for the opportunity to have Bonita in our family. She is faithful to her name: cheerful, honest, adorable, simply the most beautiful „Addiction”. Bonita worthly represents the breed both in appearance and temperament, and last but not least She’s outstanding in retriever work.

Zoe

Zoe

We have been waiting for Zoe with huge love, big hopes and dreams, but sometimes, life has different plans. Unfortunately, still so young (11-month-old), it has turned out that she is suffering from neurological disorders and epilepsy, which explained also her behavioural problems. We are supporting Zoe with all the LOVE, care and energy we can, and move every stone to see her happy and balanced as far as possible to her condition. Protecting, helping and supporting her immune system is a priority, too. Both as owner and breeder, we find it highly important to educate ourselves on the causes, symptoms, and treatments of epilepsy in dogs.
