Operation Friendship

Empowering Operation Friendship

Founded by Victor & Ashley McShan in 2004, Golden Puppies is not just a breeding program for Golden Retrievers and Goldendoodles. It is at the heart of Operation Friendship, our initiative began in 2023 to enhance the lives of veterans through companionship. Here, we go beyond breeding; we provide crucial education and support for training, ensuring that each dog can become a true companion and support system for veterans.


Supporting Dogs to Support Veterans

Operation Friendship is built on a foundation of comprehensive support—educating owners on training their new Golden Retriever or Goldendoodle. We believe that a well-informed approach to training is key to developing the potential of these intelligent, loyal, and adaptable dogs. Our goal is to empower veterans with the knowledge and resources needed to nurture a meaningful bond with their service dog.


Operation Friendship:

A Commitment to Quality and Empowerment

Golden Puppies’ reputation for quality and trust extends into Operation Friendship, our initiative dedicated to not only pairing veterans with the right dog but also ensuring they receive the education and support necessary for effective care and training. This approach has earned us a community of veterans who praise the positive impact these companions have on their lives. We invite you to join us in this mission, where every dog is a step toward recovery and companionship.

A Foundation of Safety and Understanding

Ensuring the safety and well-being of our puppies is paramount in Operation Friendship. Beyond breeding, we equip each puppy with a Microchip ID, emphasizing our commitment to their safety. Equally important, we provide education and support for training, laying the groundwork for a successful and enriching partnership between the veteran and their service dog.

In The Dog House

Our Dogs are Family! 

Our state-of-the-art campus is meticulously planned and expertly constructed to be a haven of comfort and functionality. Here, we take utmost care of each and every one of our dogs, ensuring they experience constant access to the cozy embrace of central AC and have spacious yards to frolic and play all year round.

We understand the importance of socialization, both on an individual and pack level, so our dogs enjoy daily interaction with their fellow furry friends. Additionally, they receive regular brush-outs and engaging training sessions to keep them mentally stimulated and physically active.

To guarantee their well-being, we conduct weekly health exams to ensure they are at the peak of health. Our commitment to their welfare is unwavering, and we take great pride in providing a nurturing environment for our beloved canine companions.
