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 have been blessed with wonderful dogs and friends throughout the years.
Flat-coated retrievers are wonderful family dogs. They are loving toward children, friendly to everyone and extremely sociable. They live to be with their family, and they thrive on attention and affection.
Temperamentally, the flat-coated retriever may seem forever young. While this youthful exuberance is often endearing, it can pose challenges to the owner who labors under the misconception that all dogs reach adulthood by the time they turn 1 year of age. Relatively speaking, the flat-coat is quite slow to mature.
We generally have a waitlist for our puppies, so reach out to reserve your puppy or to ask any questions.
