Lanette Wright is a reputable dog breeder based in Danville, Vermont who has specialized in breeding beautiful Golden Retrievers since 1999. Growing up on a dairy farm in upstate New York, animals have always been a prominent factor in her life. Now, Lanette and her husband live on 250 acres in Danville where their animals have wide open spaces to run and explore.
Golden Retrievers have been Lanette's passion since 1997 she got her first Golden, who was named Mack. Lanette has enjoyed raising her children with Goldens and loves seeing and helping people get a puppy of their own. Some pups have been chosen for therapy dogs to go into nursing homes and cancer centers.
Wright's Mountain Goldens dedicates themselves to making sure all of their pups are vet-checked and given a clean bill of health before they are placed in their new homes. From the early weeks of the puppies' lives, they become familiarized with human touch and contact. Wright's Mountain Goldens wish for all those who visit their location and wish to purchase a pup, is that they experience the joy and friendship that a dog can bring.
