The name Eagletarn is a combination of a Westcoast and British theme. Tarn is old English for a small mountain lake and the Bald Headed Eagle is a common sight on our Canadian Westcoast thus Eagletarn was conceived.
We started with the breed in 1989 and were taken by their intelligence, beauty and temperament. We went from pet owners to quickly becoming involved in showing and hunting. Then we had our own ideas of what we wanted to contribute and became breeders. Our dogs first and foremost are our companions.

Anna and Randy, Eagletarn Flat-Coated Retrievers
Our stock is carefully selected for temperament, type and ability. Temperament is something we will never compromise on.
We are small home-based breeders and do not believe in producing a lot of litters. Each of our breedings contributes in some way to our gene pool.
We whelp and raise our puppies inside our home. Being in our home allows us to keep the pups under observation as well as exposing them to general everyday home life. Once the puppies are old enough, they have access to a large fenced dog area for play and exploration. We also have family and friends come to visit and interact with them.
We have been blessed with wonderful dogs and friends throughout the years.
