Hello and thank you so much for visiting Oak Tree Goldens! My name is Kelsey, my husband's name is Jacob, our two Golden's names are Bella Rose and Nala, and we are Oak Tree Goldens.


I started breeding Golden Retrievers recently, but my love for them started when I was just a kid. I showed my former Golden Retriever named Buddy in 4-H for many years. He was so smart and we worked our way up to one of the highest dog obedience classes in 4-H with a couple of State Fair Obedience Championship wins. When Jake and I were looking for a puppy after getting married, it was a no brainer what kind of breed we would get. We brought the beautiful Bella Rose home in August of 2017. She had her first litter of puppies in December 2019, and we kept a girl from that litter. We named her Nala because of our love for The Lion King. 


We have so much fun with Bella and Nala! They bring joy and laughter to our lives every day. We are passionate about Golden Retrievers and are excited to bring more into the world!


We are located in Boise, Idaho. In addition to our love for Goldens, we love hiking, traveling, game nights, reading and coffee. We really look forward to hearing from you!

What's behind the name?

The name for our business, Oak Tree Goldens, derives from Jake's grandfather. When he was growing up, Grandpa Bob always told Jake and his siblings to "Be An Oak." He would tell them that they would grow wise, strong and healthy when they planted their roots in Jesus. We have loved that sentiment and think Golden Retrievers bring just a sample of that health and strength into our lives - and we can't wait to share it with you!
