About Us

Jess & I have been married for about 5 years, and we have three beautiful kids. We live on a family farm in Kuna, ID and wouldn't change a single thing about that! The ups and downs of farm life far outweigh being in a neighborhood, in our opinion. Especially with all of these dogs! I (Mark) work full time in the accounting department at a local hospice company, and my wife (Jess) stays home with the kids & dogs.

A couple of months into our marriage I convinced my wife to let me get a golden retriever. We were lucky enough to find Quincy, a beautiful 10 month old golden being re-homed. At that point, we didn't really know what we were getting into. Then, we were thinking we will have 2-3 litters and be done. ha!

After our first litter, we knew this is something that we wanted to do for the long haul. We were hooked! We loved being able to raise them in our home, and after we started having kids we knew it would be something they could be a part of. Something about kids and puppies is also the sweetest thing ever!

We work hard to make sure that our dogs have the best life they can. Nutrition, veterinary care, exercise, health, and lots of socialization and attention are at the center of our program. We are not perfect, but strive to make sure we are doing things the right way. Breeding is something we know should not be taken lightly & we are working on taking the steps to make our breeding program better and better with each litter of golden pups.

We hope to hear from you soon!

We have been so pleased with our experience getting a puppy from Silver Butte Golden retrievers! They were always open to any questions we had, replied quickly and were super friendly. You can tell they truly care for their puppies and care that the pups go to a good home. We knew we wanted a golden retriever but I was being super picky about where we would get one from. I wanted a dog coming from a loving home and also that came from a quality back ground. I came across a post on a Facebook Golden retriever page that asked about Goldens near Seattle, WA and someone had highly recommended Silver Butte Golden Retrievers even though it would a bit of a drive from Seattle. We knew it would be a longer drive for us due to being further west than Seattle. After looking into places closer to home for us, I still kept reverting back to Silver Butte Golden Retrievers. After looking into Silver Butte Golden Retrievers, reading reviews and having our questions answered by Mark, We felt confident and knew the 8-9 hour drive for our puppy would be well worth it.
Our Hallie girl has been the greatest addition to our little family. She’s so fun loving, cuddly, smart and has the biggest personality! We would highly recommend Silver Butte Golden Retrievers to anyone and would not hesitate to get another golden retriever from Silver Butte Goldens!

Our puppy, Barry, has been such a joy! We feel so fortunate to have a puppy from the last Quincy/Duke litter! Mark was very easy to get ahold of and answered all of our (many!) questions. We knew Barry was coming from a quality breeder who pride themselves on raising happy, healthy puppies. At 12 weeks Barry is almost completely house trained, knows sit, down, come, and shake, and has such a fun and quirky personality. Everyone who meets him loves him! We couldn’t be happier with our decision and would recommend Silver Butte Goldens to anyone looking for a wonderful puppy.

I have nothing but GOOD to say about Silver Butte Golden Retrievers! We were finally looking for our very first pet (as a family) & we knew we wanted a Golden. When I found this site, & reached out to Mark, he was super kind & listened to all my concerns & questions regarding adding a furry member to our family. I messaged him MANY times & he was was always quick to reply & never seemed bothered by my sometimes silliness. (hey, it's our first & kinda a big deal!) We finally got our precious Charlie Brown in December & he is just perfect! Almost completely potty trained when we picked him up at 8 weeks! We drove almost 10 hrs on the day we got him to spend Christmas with family & he did so amazing with all that chaos even! We absolutely love him!I would recommend this place to anyone & if we ever decide to get another one, we'll be back!!
